It's definitely an interesting bike and worth a post. My guess is that there isn't a market for it - but I've been wrong before.

Guaranteed that mixte would pull $1k in my area, and the buyer would be happy about it. Good paint, nice handbuilt wheels, Brooks saddle, NOS superbe mechs = $$$

I have never seen another one, but I don't go looking at mixtes. (Please, no jokes about a woman's Ideale saddle or the right seatpost size. ) I don't know what she spent on the bike, but it had a bunch of VO trinkets on it. She was extremely happy with it.

The guy who is rehabbing the bike probably isn't making money with the amount of investment he's doing, but it would sell in the right market. That's all I'm saying. It's easy to drop >$1k on a bike, so why not get something you like?

And he might not even be looking to make substantial cash on it. Some of us build bikes that we like but only to pass on, as a hobby. I used to do that, and I'm thinking of doing it again so I can get rid of all my hoarded frames, wheels, and components. I've been thinking of making a townie out of an old Nishiki 68cm frame. Yes, 68cm for someone 6'6" tall or taller. Someone would want that, I suppose.

Yeah, I'm with you on that. It is a mixte and generally considered a woman's bike. I don't know of any women outside of BF who really care about Dyad rims, IRD bottom brackets, Schwalbe tubes, etc. Heck, I don't really care about them. The bike to me is a bit overdone, some of the components could have been done more economically without losing function, style, and durability. As for the price, considering the mix of parts and accessories, it's pretty fair. How the seller is making money? I don't know.

Looks like the bars seat and rd are not original. Frame looks nice though.

Agreed.

I've got my eyes open for a mid 70s Super. They are like wearing a nice pair of comfortable loafers for me. You always know what to expect.

I find them from time to time, but the pricing can be optimistic to say the least.

Sooner or later......

That is a sweet bike. I really like the fact the bike is "scary fast", I've never had a "scary fast" bike before even when I was doing 58 mph on one, I wonder if I buy that bike if my average speed will go by 20 or 30 or more mph? Not sure if I would be scared then, it would have to be at least another 60 mph faster than I can go now on level ground before I might consider it "scary fast".

It is scary fast because it doesn't have the extra weight or drag of bartape or brake hoods.


3K no bartape, no hoods, torn saddle, dirty, scratched Ambrosio stem....

All of those are custom to the bike. The seller should be charging more, not less. It's a deal as-is. Sheesh......

^^^now that is funny. The only ones I've seen are wall hang jobbies. Dig the background scenery. Perhaps an off-road dude with his everyday rider. (honestly - that bike is VERY tempting)

Won't go for 3K. Might turn out to be a value before everything plays out.

Most of us switch out bartape, saddle and stems anyway.

As for dirty, I tear down and clean thoroughly any used bike I buy.

None of the items you mentioned make any difference to me.

As for the hoods, there are many sources for originals or duplicates.

Drooling over that mixte. I'm in the Chicago area and browse CL almost daily, but rarely have seen bikes so beautifully restored. So I dug around a bit, and found the guy who did that mixte (and a couple of others currently for sale) is pretty well known in the Chicago bike community. The prices are a bit... pricey, especially because decent mixtes in this area go for around $200 (I paid $140 for my Miyata and it must have sat unused for 30 years given the minty mintness of it). Needless to say, the components on those inexpensive bikes aren't nearly as nice as what he puts on his restorations, but if one is simply looking for a cute reliable bike, there are a lot of MUCH cheaper choices. So I think he's aware his target buyer is someone who will understand why his builds are so much more and will appreciate the work that's gone into them (or maybe his target buyer is a woman who has Velouria as her spirit animal).

Totally, completely lusting after his bikes. It's inspiring me to bring my own mixte back from the dead and build it up all pretty-like.

Given I see nary a single lug, that doesn't look like any Raleigh vintage frame. Given this is a classic and vintage thread, it strikes me as non-topical.
