I think this is a very fair (low) price and I would not expect this to last in my market...if I had more time I might be looking at this as a flip.



1983 DeRosa Professional SLX 55cm Campagnolo C-Record Cinelli - $900 (Royersford)



< image 1 of 11 >

342 Washington Street
(
)

condition: good
make / manufacturer: DeRosa
model name / number: Professional SLX
size / dimensions: 55 cm

more ads by this user



I picked this DeRosa bicycle up from a friend, but I currently have too many projects going on, and very little storage space left in my shop. I did a general cleaning of the bike and checked its operating condition. All you need to do is add a 27.2mm seatpost, your favorite saddle and off you go!

In the late '80s this color was known as Azzurro Spagna (Spanish blue), and it has some minor scratches here and there. The frame is chromed, as is the fork, and there are a couple rust spots (see photos), particularly near the fork crown and on the inside of the non-drive chainstay. My friend had replaced the bottom bracket with a slightly more modern cartridge style, which would hold up better to frequent usage than the older, loose-bearing version.

Specs: FRAME - Columbus SLX tubing; Campagnolo C-Record component group; HANDLEBARS-Cinelli 64-42 Giro d'Italia with Cinelli tape; STEM- Cinelli 1R 100mm; WHEELSET - built with C-Record hubs, Matrix 36-hole clincher rims and blue Vittoria Rubino Pro Intrepid PRB Kevlar tires (good condition with plenty of tread).

I rebuild/restore/refurbish bicycles (vintage and modern) in my basement shop. You can check out some of my work via my Cycle Tech Royersford page on Facebook or my blog at Cycle Tech

Lotus Touring Bicycle - $50 - Long Island

Looks like a 1984 Eclair touring bike. Ad says needs minor repair, without specifying issues. Frame/fork looks pretty scratchy. Looks to be a 21" or 23" frame.

Yeah, that De Rosa could be a nice rider for sure.

With some TLC it could be a special bike for someone.

Looks like seller has the same bicycles vs woodworking conflict I do. Also the same Delta sawdust collector, which helps some, but it is a losing battle. Don
I recently moved my woodshop out of the bike area and it has made a world of difference!

Gonna' be a little tough to test ride as-is. Pick up a cheap saddle and seat post, clean it up and that could bring an easy $1500 I would think.

Has some rust issues. It took me a while to get $900 for my red 1988 DeRosa on ebay. The blue ones are a little more rare so you never know.

EDIT: I'm going to pose this question in a new thread, since this is not the place here.

Probably the wrong thread for this question, but in general how would one deal with that kind of rust? The paint overall looks pretty decent to me, and seems like come careful rust removal and touch up painting would be fine (on the seat stay, for example). But the missing chrome and deeper rust looks pretty terrible (at the fork crown and chain stay). What are the options for those kinds of defects?

I would not agree at all regarding characterizing that as a "serious rust issue"...it's a steel bike from 83' with a bit of patina. Given its age, I'd call that pretty nice shape. I've sold 4 80s de Rosas and have never accepted less than 1350 (on a bike with lesser parts and condition).

It's not quite a flip price - but that's a damn good buy.

Who characterized as "serious rust issue", definitely has a bit in the fork crown and seat stays, I said some rust issues. Flip it

That De Rosa is a rider.

Buy it and love it.

Give it a little TLC and that bike will be with you for a good long time.

Had lunch in a restaurant with "the redhead" at the next table on a fall saturday afternoon of 1972 in Piedmont, California. Had seen him play live a number of times when he was at UCLA.

Saw him play once at WSU in 1973. UCLA was WAY ahead at half time and started stalling as soon as the second half started. Walton got pounded on; he was the worst free throw shooter and it was the only way WSU could get the ball as there was no shot clock then.

He and Wooden were perpetually battling.

Doubt things got much better when he became a blazer of trails...

Snooze you lose, literally. Had a house fire early Saturday morning, went to bed when I got off shift. Woke up around 11:00am checked Craigslist and saw a mint Ironman with the swirl wave paint, $75. I called and already sold. It will show back up in a few weeks for $500.

This bike was listed at $85 yesterday. It's got a 21 inch seat tube and a Sugino Maxy crank set which I assume is not original.
