DeRosa Professional






Pains me to have to thin the herd a bit, but I have listed a handful of my bikes on a local FB cycling marketplace.

The only machine that has any interest is the last one I wanted to sell, (if at all) ---

The frameset has been set to 130 and it has a 10 speed Campy group of mixed origin (Daytona RDR, Centaur compact crankset, Veloce 10 shifters, etc etc, plus a modern Thomson cockpit

Have someone interested in the frameset but my question for you folks is what is a frameset like this worth roughly in VG condition? Standard SLX with a flat crown fork. I think when I first acquired this and posted a pic or 2 on the board we dated it to 1985
Didn't want to part it out, but I understand with the "personalized" build I did, -- it may be for the best to do so

The frame and fork $600-800, Full bike $1600-2000. The sell it now price would probably be around a $1000.

I think $650 for frame and fork. I think you're better off parting out and would have a hard time getting more than maybe $1100 complete bike since it's kind of mis-matched mid level (but good) parts. De Rosa Pro should fetch more, but seems like nobody is buying these now (or everybody is selling). 2-3 years ago, $800 easy for a De Rosa frame/fork.

I'm selling a Tommasini frame/fork right now that I thought would fly at $550 but not a whiff of interest. Anyway, I hope you're selling because you want to and not because you have to.

Top dollars only seem to go to all original with date stamped group parts in line or just a nice original frame and fork for someone else to build up using their stash. Retro mods are cool and easier to ride, but those looking for vintage steeds most likely want it all vintage. I do see it appealing to a regular group rider looking for something different though. It's more than good enough to hold your ground . Beautiful and functional.

Yes. I built it to be my daily driver and it served well in this capacity for months. I have a new Tarmac and while this machine is a bit heavier, it gives up very little in performance to it with me on board.


Its really the last one i wanted to sell -- i have several other really great bikes listed but thusfar this is the only one that has attracted any interest. I'd actually love to see it built with a period correct SR, C Record or Dura Ace gruppo (Even a Superbe Pro) - with a set of GEL 280 wheels and then see how much it tipped the scales at

Oh that one is yours? I saw it, but even w/a 59 cm seat tube, that 62 c-t looks massive. I'd push to a 59cm - but yours is on the big end of "59cm" for me. I'm also quite happy on a 57cm, so my size is really 57-58-59... otherwise I'd have been shaking down my wallet for this.

58.5cm - that's a long top tube. I'm only starting to pay more attention to top tube measure, and interestingly, across all my bikes regardless of what frame size they say they are, it's usually about 56.5cm.
