Indeed... I have had it on ebay for awhile but not much interest there... almost seems worth more parted out than as a complete bike... all the components are considerbly better than what one generally sees there

Yes, you are right... there were a few guys that send messages of interest but never follow up... had it here (sf bay area) on craigslist make offer... never got a bite... I really am considering parting it out... just a shame to do cuz' it is original and still basically new

That's at least a 60cm size right?.... Big frames are just a bit harder to sell right away except in "tall people" countries like in the Scandinavian region....and Holland, I heard.....

This is a great looking bike that seems to hit all the value bells. Nicely lugged hand made frame with nice chrome lugs of top flight steel. Nice better level vintage campy components decent vintage wheelset. Very nice setup and basic presentation. As for value I don't get why your not getting $700-$800 on this bike fairly easey maybe $900-1100 sold in parts.

i have never found a very big following for Carabela products. as mentioned above, you would likely come out well ahead to do a partout. plus, you would see some income right away.
