Daccordi Mitico in good condition

Hey guys

I have a Daccordi Mitico that i bough in 2000, but that was made in the late 90s (don't know the exact year). It was stored for almost 10 years. Been using it again for the last couple of years. Great bike, but i'm thinking of selling it and wondering what's it's value.

The frame is in columbus and the paint is very nice. Almost everything is Campagnolo. There's a mix of Veloce, Athena, Chorus and Daytona.

Unfortunately, the original Campagnolo front wheel was stolen... I'm also afraid that the stem is seized.

Apparently I can't put pictures in a post, so here's the pictures : www.bikeforums.net/g/album/12669246

Thanks for your input !

Beautiful bike, too bad about the stem.



I love this paint scheme

This really is a pretty desirable bike. Nice paint, a good Columbus tubeset, a decent mix of good components, and its a nice size, but...that stem issue is huge.

Might be worth having your LBS look at it. Maybe he can free it cheaply enough for you. The market will be very limited for a bike with a stuck stem even as nice as this is, and I don't think you will get nearly what is worth if you sell it as is.

Thanks for your input Giacomo ! I have tried to remove the stem myself, then I asked a few LBS but none where able to remove it. I live close to Marinoni Cycles, I will contact them, maybe they can help. If I am able to remove the stem, how much do you think I can get for the bike (considering I will do a tune up on it: new cassette, chain, bar tape, cables, etc) ? Do you think it would be a good move to try to find an original Campagnolo front wheel to have the full original wheelset ?

Thanks !

I don't think I would do to much work on this bike to sell it. Asthetically, it looks great as is. Mechanically, a quick tune-up, and maybe find a matching wheel and then put it out there.

The paint, the somewhat rare tubeset and the Campy components are the selling point here. The Daccordi name, while not quite Colnago or DeRosa, is well respected as well. If you go e bay, I think you could do $700 - $1000, less of course on CL. That's my price point, but around here, somebody will say they bought the same bike for $150! lol. Let's see if anyone else chimes in. Good luck! Hope you get that seatpost out!

The bike looks clean.

I'm surprised the stem is stuck.

My method:

Loosen the stem bolt quite a bit (but, not backed all the way out).
Give the stem bolt a good whack with a hammer to get the wedge loose.

Hold the front wheel with the knees and twist the handlebars.

You should have access to the stem from the bottom, and could potentially try to seal the stem, and pour some penetrating oil in from the bottom.

Thanks for the tips Clifford. I have talk with Marinoni Cycles and I think they can manage something. Thanks again !
