OK, I imagine this will be tough to put an exact value on.

I picked up this bike over a year ago as you see it in the picture below.





The paint is a little banged up and there is some minor damge that I had checked out today. The damage is likely from someone putting the bike in a stand too tight. The local bike builder thinks he could roll it out without too much damage to the paint.

Back on track,
I've recently picked up this '75 Raleigh Grand Sport, and I don't feel the need at this point to have two bike that serve the same purpose.



I've got a few other things in line to unload before the Alpine (if I do sell it at all) , but I figured I'd put this out there to get a general idea.

It's around a 58cm.
Nervex pro lugs.
Campagnolo dropouts.
Possibly an Eisentraut built bike.(Just to stir the pot a bit)

Put it on ebay with all the appropriate keywords, including Eisentraut, and you'll find out! I'd imagine you might also learn new information that way from the ebay residents.

It is a nice frame. Shame it wasn't properly cared for.

Oh, and is it 58 ctt or ctc?

Would Georgetown be the house brand of Georgetown (Wash, DC) Cycles? They were around in the 60's-70's. Maybe still are.

The Alpine looks exactly like a mid 70's Eisentraut Limited, touring version. Nervex pro lugs and fork crown, signature seatstay treatment. Too bad it's in such poor shape. I would still consider keeping it if it fits. Is there a serial number? Value is maybe around $400?
