I can't guestimate a value for the Serotta as they seem to be all over the board. I'd guess $400 for the F&F but I'd want way better photos before I even starting thinking about it. The 660 is maybe $300 on a good day. Hard part about this kind of thing is - how worn is the headset and the BB? Do the wheels match? etc....



PS. They're not $1256 - price is $1500 which is even scarier
Or is it $1,800?

This is an oldie but goodie 18 speed road bike in very good condition. It is a larger frame, 25 inches from the middle of the crank up to the top of where the seat goes in. There is no issues with it except it may need to be lubricated properly. It hits all gears as it is, but it is a little bit clunky. This bike includes a water bottle cage, kickstand, and aluminum back rack, along with a Huret speedometer that does work. Pick up locally is just east of Valor Christian School in Highlands ranch CO, zip 80126. For payment I take cash, zelle, or PayPal only.

The "sticker price" for both ads would indeed be $1,800, but the seller told me that she'd take $1,200 if I would buy the whole lot.

$1,256 was the total price on the 1987 receipt for the Serotta F/F with custom paint and Campy Record HS and BB--that's more than $3K in today's dollars!

To be fair to the seller, I think she is just trying to do the best she can to help her elderly mother deal with a lot of stuff that her dad left behind. Having gone through a similar experience in the past year, I have some empathy. But only about $800 worth.

At that price, I figured I could help her out a bit, (hopefully!) recoup my investment by selling the frames and Campy bits, and keep the Brooks Pro for myself. And the patriotic stars and stripes bar tape that you can't quite appreciate in the photo below. We'll see what she says at the end of the week. Supposedly, someone else is coming to look at the lot on Friday. If she calls me back, I'm going to insist that she throws in the nail polish that madpogue pegged as a perfect touch up match for the red Trek!

Colnago C59 Carbon Road Bike - $2,000 (Belmont)

Yeah, yeah, yeah.... it is WAY too modern for C&V (electronic shifting?? gasp!), and the pics are pretty much useless (all sideways and upside down) unless you know what you're looking at.. But this is a "C" series Colnago (lugged carbon made in Italy) with Super Record for a great price.


https://boston.craigslist.org/bmw/bi...524576036.html
Colnago C59 carbon road bike, size 56cm (medium), Campy record shifters/brakes, 1st generation electric (battery-powered) power shifting w/ charger, Campy Bora Ultra 50cm racing wheels, Deda bar & stem, Selle Italia saddle, Shimano Dura Ace pedals. A very nice road and/or racing bike. Purchased (custom-built) in 2013, never downed or crashed. More pics available upon request. Would prefer not to ship, looking to sell locally.

That "Designed in California" designation seemed to be a "thing" BITD, with GF, Specialized, etc. I used to joke that it should have said "Designed by Stoners". Goes doubly so in this case.

Maybe they're interpreting "bottom of seat tube" based on the way the bike is sticking to that vertical driveway.....

Any link between the electronic shifting and the seller's inability to do a simple photo manipulation is purely coincidental (NOT).......

(Sorry, this is what 3 hrs sleep does to one's snarky-meter....)
