Really - you s'pose $350 is an ok price for a de rosa with campagnolo on it?

Be a neat rider.

Would rather have it w/o the "professionally" applied decals.

I don't think it's worth more than $349.95.

No doubt...but it's still a De Rosa underneath.

I like my crappy rattle canned SC more than the nice one because I don't care about abusing it.

Too small for me. It has been on CL for a while. I posted that on this thread last week. It did not get much notice. It sure is pretty.

It said "professionally painted" and "factory decals applied" so I wonder if the seller applied the decals after having it painted. If so they may be easily removable.

I saw that bike, but it's not something I want, it was a low end bike not worth much to me. There is also a Nishiki LeMans in town for sale too on CL, again not something I want, but of the two I would rather see the Nishiki which I might if it stays on CL too long because then if it's any good I could make a better deal. But I got so many bikes now not sure if I want another.

You mean that yellow Centurion? Looks nice but not one of the Dave Scott models that folks lust after on here.

I know what you mean. I have 6 bikes at this point, so not much point in buying more for myself. If I could find a really nice sports tourer or touring bike with lighter tubing, I might transfer parts over. I could see investing in another bike at some point, but it wouldn't be C&V.

I have an early 1980's vintage 58 cm (center to center) for sale. It has complete era parts of Campagnolo record and super record parts, Cinelli stem and bar, Mavic rims on record low flange hubs, and a Regina freewheel. All it needs is a chain. The frame was repainted professionally and factory decals applied. The lugwork confirms the authenticity.
For professional paint it sure looks like the bottom cup was left in when it was painted unless that's grease. I did message on this earlier asking if decals were under clear. No response as of yet. If they are not I would probably pick up.

I don't recall this one being listed unless it was pulled.

Same seller with 2 Bianchis in garage: 1 black, 1 dark pink
$350-400 each but best offer.

Pics make me think not a bicyclist selling.

I saw that on eBay too for same price. One unfortunate wart on the face (top tube) but a sweet bike and in my size! I'll bet a buyer could get $50 knocked off the price going CL instead of eBay.

Beautiful bike. But it just doesn't strike me as much as the Diamante does. Still, if it didn't have that large paint blemish......

I know it isn't a Dave Scott, but I like the color scheme, I'm just not wanting another bike and his asking price is a bit high for what would make me want to take a look at it. If it was $150 I may look at, if I bought it it would be mostly because of parts I could salvage off it for a Dawes which I found in a dumpster the other week, it has the brake calipers and hubs attached but no wheels or derailleurs, but what is there is in really good condition, but the bike may be a bit large for me but I won't know for sure until I build a wheelset for it. I have two new 700c grey anodized rims, new straight gauge spokes, new brass nips, and used hubs, all of which I've had for years, and I don't want to invest any more money than what I can make on it, so maybe, depending on the condition of the components on the Centurion I could use on the Dawes which I think would bring a little more money than the Centurion. But again it's all up in the air if I want be bothered.

I don't like it when there is no price listed but this is a pretty sweet Somec in Seattle

Vintage somec road bike





And here's a Tommasini Prestige in Eugene, OR with some potential, it's been listed for awhile so perhaps there is some wiggle room on the price?

1. Why would that be a required disclosure to begin with?
2. At his asking price, are you really expecting anything beyond a blurry photo?
