"Definitely doesn't look 56 years old". Well yeah, that's because it isn't

He says it's from the late 50s and it doesn't look 56 years old, so his arithmetic isn't very good.

Isn't this the same bike that was the subject of a recent BF thread, where the seller was claiming he was offered big $$ from the LBS?

EDIT: here

It says 50s bike then says it's 56 years old. Wouldn't that make it a 61' best case. Can't see the cranks to tell if they are the first few year type with raised pedal lip. 58-61 IIRC.

Nice, but for $3500 maybe it's too much to ask for a complete picture of the bike in something other than the lighting of a dungeon hallway.

That is a $1000 bike at best, and late 60's to boot. The only way it would be worth more is if Gino Bartali rode it and signed it! Never happened though.

Condorino said it best
The overall condition of the bike is very good to excellent given the 55+ years that have passed. As for value, I have purchased original Roma models of this period with prices ranging from $2500 - $3500 depending on the condition of the components . . . and as little as $1500 given lesser condition or missing part(s). In this case, I see that the crankset has some excessive corrosion/staining that is not easily corrected. That said, I have never taken exception with any owner's valuation of their own bike as ultimately it is their bike. However when selling a bike the buyer or market is the eventual measure.

Interesting to me that we set a higher value on our bikes when selling and a lower one when buying....hi numbers only reflect a few overzealous buyers that need to fill a perceived hole in their collections which push the market up...but soon the market corrects when all the "buyers" have what they want.
I could find a few other Marques to spend my money on, I do not need it all.
Regards, Ben

I dunno. Late sixties? Looks older than that to my untrained eye. Looks like it has a Gran Sport front derailleur on it. And maybe rear. Legano branded hubs. But the crank looks later.

The seller is clueless imo, beyond knowing that the bike is a little special. Calls it a 10/10. It's in nice shape considering it's age, but it's not even close to mint. Tubelers? lol.

If Condorino actually dated this bike at 55 years that should be pretty accurate. And he would be a good source for values. Clean original bikes are tough to come by. Signature color and Roma would not be cheap.

Didn't these all come with fenders also? And they are not cheap if you can even find them.

I can't find any on my Capo Sieger, but might there be date codes on either the derailleurs or hub axle nuts? That Legnano is a great bike, but I concur that the price is well beyond what I would pay for something like that. However, the seller could get lucky, like the guy who sold a Sieger of that vintage, with much crummier paint and sans wheelset, for $2K.

Like anything else it's worth what someone is willing to pay for it. As this CL ad is in it's second posting looks like the seller is willing to hold out till he gets his price or close to it.
