Concorde Aquila evaluation

The bike has no issues, nice paint with a Dura-Ace group, Columbus SLX frame.
It will need at least the front tire replaced.
I was thinking selling it for around 750...900$.
What is your opinion about the selling price on this bike?

I think that's optimistic (and I have two Aquilas myself)

The rims may be worth a fair bit to the right buyer though.

With a selling price of about 800 USD, what is the breakdown in value between the frame and components? Basically, how much value is in the frame alone?

Good point. A really nice 7410 group with crisp shifting but without hubs will go for $499 every day.
Looks like the wheelset has DA hubs, so if it’s clincherit’s got to be worth $200-300.
Seatpost, bars, etc, easily another $100 or more. Saddle looks good, if not damaged then $50.
So you’re at $850 plus several hun for the frameset if you part it out and it’s in primo comdition.
Less than primo= less than that.

The tires are glued on rims.
The seat post is also DA.

I'd say 400-500$ for the whole bike, given that the buyer can stomach the tubs.

In today's market, it's probably between $500 and $600 IMO... and that's Los Angeles prices...

I had a Concorde Gavina SL around 1990. Great frame that rode really well, very smooth and tracked straight. Might have been lucky, but so good another similar frame is one of the very few n+1 additions I’d still consider.

Unfortunately international freight costs now all but rule out importing frames from Europe and the US to New Zealand. If it was local to me, 59/60x58/59 c-to-c, and I could inspect it first I’d likely pay USD425-475 for the frame and fork only depending on condition, maybe north of 500- with the seatpost included and if I could be sure a 30mm tyre would fit between the chainstays (everywhere else looks good for clearance, unlike many frames of this era).

I know that doesn’t help the OP much but there we are fwiw.

But, is it worth the effort & risk? Don’t know about the rest of the country, but in the PDX metro area, high quality vintage vintage stuff isn’t moving. This usually a good market.
Cheers,

I would say wait till spring and try selling locally in Cleveland all the US markets seem way down right now, Cleveland is actually a bit of sleeper market about as good as any right now. With the current political climate and high shipping killing international and the raised ebay fees with the seller eats all disputes issues and all but must ship cheapest way policies with fees and raised higher shipping prices stricter policies across the board in the US USPS and all major shippers this month. Likely best to wait and sell your stuff locally nicely cleaned up and riding in the Spring. in a couple month in a two months wait could net you close to 2x for what your selling over right now. I would say don't list right now bikes that linger on listings for a couple months get discounted forgotten wait till spring to list is my advice.

Around $600, max. If in mint condition.
The bike is a bit on the big side, which could be a negative. Considering that, then maybe $500, unless you have a few tall people who might bid for it.
it would be more if it had graphics and paint of a pro team.

Jeez, some of the prices thrown out seem way low.

I'd want $400 for the frameset alone.

yes - as the owner of many fine vintage bikes, but not Colnagos, Masis or DeRosa’s —- these price suggestions bum me out . But probably realistic nowadays

Local market here is dead, dead, dead. Donating more bikes anymore, or selling on fleece bay. Local sales are convenient but prices are crazy low. I don't expect his to improve.

Where I'm at in Colorado I have ended up donating a several nice road and MTB's fixed up ready to re to the local thrift were they only sold for $100-150. In the last year or so.. Did manage to flog off few of the nicer components here on the forums or ebay at bargain prices.

One last thing if your selling bikes do not put garage doors or snow ice any of your sales pics.
All three are pretty much potential deal killers.

Anyway, it is not a sale killer, I sold and shipped in the last half year 18 bikes or frames and local probably I sold three times more.
But I am not interested to keep score about that.
I am a flipper, not a collector, and I need some extra money to help my children with the school taxes.
If you flip bikes, why are you so concerned about the price? Just sell it at some price higher than what you bought it for. Bike has no sentimental value to you anyway.

Maybe he's trying to maximize profit. You know, like in business.

In this case, the only relevant aspects are charging as much as possible vs what someone is willing to pay. It seems strange that the TS would need that explained to them.
