Low-ish end, but presents nicely and the ask is reasonable. I could potentially facilitate if someone really wanted it:

Really nice made in Italy atala road bike. Campagnolo. Low miles

Taking a look at the bike and the presentation, I doubt it's associated in any with VO or its founder.

[h=2]Bianchi Volpe Commuter - Cyclocross - $360 (Bedford) [/h][FONT=inherit]





This Bianchi Volpe is Japanese made from about 1991. It's a very solid, multi-purpose bike that can handle commuting, cyclocross and both paved and non-paved roads. It's currently built up as a commuter and includes everything shown in the first picture: mix of Shimano parts including Tiagra deraileurs, Sora STI shifters, triple crankset, fenders, cantilever brakes, sidewall dynamo powered lighting with Busch & Muller headlight and taillight, Racktime rear rack and a single pannier. Wheels are Alex rims with Shimano Deore hubs and Vittoria Randonneur 32mm tires.. Plenty of cosmetic paint scratches but otherwise good condition. The frame size is about 54.5cm effective top tube length, 53cm effective seat tube.

After looking at the photos, it seems that the bike in photo #1 is different than in #2 and #3 . I am referring to the head tube color and shifters.

Pretty fairly priced Voyageur here in Madison. If it were just a bit bigger, I'd be all over it. Vintage Schwinn Voyageur

Very nice, but it's worth 30%, maybe 40% tops of the asking price

Okay, how's this look to you? Vintage Schwinn Voyageur Bike Parts 62cm - $100 Obviously there'd be some work involved, but at least it's already dismantled for shipping.

This one might tempt me if it were a size down.

Agreed. That Sachs is nice and not ridden much, but worth maybe $2K.
Maybe.
To the right buyer.

A sachs of that vintage, in that condition, will typically sell for around 2k on the bay. Add 2k, at least, of value for the 50th. There is a buyer at 4-5k, though it could take a while to find said buyer.

I have sold sachs bikes for 2k without 50th. While 7k is too high, that would sell at 2k in an hour. Put that on vs at 3500 and it sells fairky quickly.

It could come and live in Minnesota for a very long time at $2,000.

I would put in the first bid at that price.

Heck, it fits me.

Campy 50th doesn't do much for me, but at 2k? I'd strip the parts, sell them for 2k+ and have a free sachs frame.

Here's one you don't see every day:

Vista Silver Shadow Roadbike - $150



Forged dropouts, Shimano 600 components, partially chromed fork and stays, and I'll bet those are Shimano bar-end shifters.

Good observation, I thought there was something different and couldn't put my finger on it. I will look at them again.

refurbished 1980s Nishiki Olympic 12spd
"Handcrafted by Kawamura"
$185

So, I don't know the Nishiki hierarchy, probably good at the least.

Police Auction, Minneapolis; probably for this forum, the top draw I'd say would be a gold colored Raleigh Super Course, there will be two Super Courses. I don't think I will be there but thought I'd say. I went once.

Mpls Police Bike Sale
Full listing, it sounds like a Triumph 3 Speed, likely Raleigh made, I think I have seen those and 2 Motobecanes, Nomade and Mirage. Lemond Poprad.

Aaron, you may be right. But the only way anyone would break even (or be attracted) at that price would be as a part out.

Like Gomango, 50th doesn't bake my cookies to the tune of an additional $2K, but perhaps someone else's oven might be preheated by those gold coinies.

The headbadge on that Vista is different than one's I've usually seen. Most Vistas I have seen I think are reminiscent of some of the old Schwinn headbadges where it is spelt vertically on the headtube.

V
I
S
T
A

I think that is what I've seen.

Looks alright.

Yeah, when I googled it, I found saw examples of both headbadges.
