64 Bianchi Specialissima

I haven't been following the market all that closely lately but I'm starting to think about doing some serious downsizing. I will probably be selling most of my collection over the next 6 months. There have been no transactions on anything very close to this on Ebay in awhile and thought maybe the audience here would have some input.

It's a '64 Bianchi Specialissima, all original, except for maybe the seat and consumables. Paint and chrome is in good shape. It is a 58cm ctc frame. Fully serviced and ready to ride.

Looking for an estimate on an online sale price as I have no local market to speak of. So a sale here or on CR or on Ebay (I'll add 15% for Ebay fees).

Hi Jim - for what itís worth, I sold this 1964 Speciallisima on EBay about 1-1/2 years ago for $1200. Your bike is a beauty; the paint on yours looks to be in better condition than mine was. Hope this helps; I know that these donít come up for sale often

orcas island thanks. Very useful info. I have sold a few bikes on Ebay in the past year and it has seemed that high end, name brand bikes are bringing very good money. My Masi Special sold within a few hours of listing and I also sold a Gios Professional at a very good price. But "lower" end bikes seem to be moving a bit slower.

Great looking bike I would say this one should get a bit of a premium that said with whole bicycle shipping being in total hell right now with prices way up and shipping times way down which knocks a couple of hundred off a bike of this level. I would say $1200-1300. If your no in a hurry to sell if you wait tell the better spring summer season for sales when shipping will likely be better in 6 months or so you could likely get $1500-1600.

If that bike were 2cm taller I would tell you it's worth $1,500 and offer to send you a check and save you the trouble of listing it!
Like you, I am under the impression that top end bikes are commanding a pretty penny these days. I think $2,000 is not far off the mark, but you may have to wait patiently for the right buyer to come along. There seems to be a much bigger market for bikes from the seventies than from the sixties. For those buyers Super Record trumps Nuovo Record trumps Record.

Turns out this bike is actually 59cm ctc (seat tube and top tube).
