Univega Nuovotech 450 Vintage Road / Racing bike

I just finished refurbishing a late 80s Univega Nuovotech 450 road bike. I got the frame complete with original components and put a decent used set of 700c wheel on with new tires and tubes and gave it a good tuneup.

Exage components, Veta saddle, all in all in good condition, aluminum frame, frame is a 57 cm.

I'm going to post and sell on craigslist today... any thoughts on a good asking price...

I was thinking ask $275 take $250.

I live in a hot bike market.

In a hot market, should go fast. Bike looks very appealing. Around here, I would need to go a little lower, but not much. Take some polishing compound to that seat stay scrape. It should come out.

Yes I noticed that scrape this morning... it not throught the paint at all and will come off with just some simple green I think. I just saw the same bike not refurbish for sale about an hour away for $110 but the pics are bad and very little info is given on the bike... so I hope my better marketing and the fact that it is refurbished with new tires and tubes will make is sell quick for a good price.

+1. Good presentation can = 2 X price. I can't over-emphasize the impact of good marketing.

I love to buy bikes with crappy marketing. It eliminates a lot of competition, and yields a nice discount. I've seen bikes sit on my loacal CL at 50% of market due to poor marketing.

Buy the other one for $110 or less, if you can negotiate down. Then flip it too. It is a desireable bike. Lawee frame, make sure to play that up.

No time to pickup the other one... to far and I've got too much other stuff on my plate... I told a friend to pick it up if you got a chance... I'm guessing it is gone by now. No bits on the one I posted on craigslist... hope to have it sold by the end of the weekend. I forgot to mention the Lawee frame... I'll add that to the add.

Its a nice bike... but I prefer the feel of steal...

I had the pearl white version of that. Real stiff. Sold it for around your asking price in a super hot market within 2 days.
