2 Great Bikes for Sale

Hi:

I have 2 great bikes.

One is a Bottechia TSX, red and white, similar to what Lemond rode in the 1990 Tour De France. The other is a beautiful blue Calfee Tetra Pro 10+ years old. Both are 55cm center to center to Campy Record components.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

JR

Those are some great bikes! Can you post photos, and tell us a bit more about the components?

What condition are they in currently? Too bad you missed the Velodrome bike show in Balboa Park yesterday!

+1 Thrifty Bill gets it dead on with this one...

And...agree...nice bikes...would love to see pictures...and glad they are not my size!

Agree with what they both said. High dollar bikes seldom get top dollar locally. I've seen a lot of them just sit and sit and sit on the local CL. In a big city, your chances obviously go up of finding the right buyer.
