1986 Serotta Nova Special X

This is NOS. Never been on the road. We have the original dealer invoice and factory description / sizing chart. I think this is all first generation C Record.

I would like to sell. What do you guys think?

Never been on the road... is that a euphemism for just ridden around the shop parking lot?

I'm not sure. Perhaps it was ridden around the shop parking lot.

not a bad looking bike but your 'kit' is not all C Rec. the brake calipers are Chorus the levers are very early C Rec as they have no quick release making them a very bad match for Chorus calipers. what kind of hubs? those Ambrosio rims seem cheesy for a SLX bike



are you considering selling the 'kit' seperate from the frame?


never ridden? was this stored near a vent for a range hood or something?

So you would recommend stripping it down? Maybe this is not have the original wheel set. The bike has been sitting around for the past 25 years. It needs to be cleaned up a bit.

Maybe you should head on over to the Serotta forums. I don't know where they prefer appraisals to be posted, but you should get more a response than you are getting here.

They may not appraise it, but someone will probably offer to buy her.

Too small for me, or else I'd chase it as well.

Try to sell the whole bike first.

She's pretty cool I think.

Has some major charm points!
