German mixte Victoria swoopy tube.

DH is looking askance at my growing fleet. Something has to go. I think my mixte *sniff* will be easier to sell than my Pashley. Any suggestions? Here she is: https://www.flickr.com/photos/6133923...7626768578657/

I should add that she's like NOS. The pedals aren't even scuffed. It's kind of amazing.

I'm talking myself out of this.

Wow no replies. It always makes me feel bad when that happens to me.

Anyway, the bike looks to be in amazing condition. I've never heard of Victoria but it looks to be a more entry level commuter (?) with the steel seatpost, handlebars, and adapter claw rear. Would probably bring more with an IGH hub. Around here I think you might be able to get about $150 for it, only because the condition is so great. Where are you located?

+1 Great condition, but very entry level. Depends on your market. In a hot market a higher level than above, maybe 2X. Around here, maybe $200 because it looks so good!

Nothing special but mixtes are good sellers and this one is very clean. In my area it would fetch about $100 but it could go for $200 in a hot market.

I have seen a few Victorias most seem to be will built entry level commuters bikes. Usually the kind of bike that sells for between a $100-200 depending on market. Considering the condition on this bike you may get another $50 or $100 out of the bike in better markets. I do like the look of the German style mixtes with the curves in the frame.
