Not quite but almost C&V Bianchi.

I am looking at a Bianchi frame that is a replica of the bike that Pantani rode in the 1998 Tour de France. What do ya'll think is a reasonable price to pay for such a beast? I'm hoping there is someone here who knows more about Bianchis than I do.

I wouldn't have any idea about the valuation. I feel compelled to point out that discussing on an open forum the fair value of an item with 6 days left on the auction isn't the best strategy for winning said item. Best to keep it on the dl. Good luck; looks like a nice frameset.

The shipping calculator says $13.32 to my zip code! It's lucky for you that I have no desire to own it.

Sorry - I should have explained that I am looking at a completely different bike, which is local to me. It is very comparable to this ebay example. I am trying to get a better idea of what I should offer the guy.

quite big for pantani eh? I'd love to own one of those frames, because Pantani was my great hero when I watched the Tour de France with my dad at the tender age of 6.

You might want to try the Road Cycling Forum or the appraisal forum. I like Bianchi, and this one is beautiful; but to me, aluminum is aluminum. I don't believe there is that much difference between different brands of AL tubing the way there is with steel. To me, what sets this frame apart is the geometry and color. If you like climbing in the drops the way Pantani did, (apparently doped to the gills when he won.), then this type frame might be worth more to you. I personally wouldn't pay more than 200 for an AL frame. This is also a Team Mercatone Uno replica bike with Bianchi carbon fork. Apparently, they also made 101 Pantani Replica Bike with a Time carbon fork. I don't know what other difference there was between the two versions, except that apparently some came with super light Boron steel. Now 'that' would be a frame worth looking for.

Your best bet is to review Ebay Completed auctions for similar frame and fork sets (is that correct Monsieur Bois?). That will give you an idea of what other people are willing to pay. But you must understand that location, size, condition and many other things determine How Much A Bicycle Is Worth.

If you look through that feature article on MY "TEN SPEEDS", you might have a better idea of what the set is worth to you and, ultimately, that is what you want to know, isn't it?

I hope this is a help.

I don't think that calculator is right. It's quoting just 23 dollars to ship to me... all the way across the country.

That's all the seller can charge unless he corrects the problem.

In the condition it is on the auction I would say up to 1k depending on how many people want it. 57 is a pretty popular size. If it is used, half of that.

We do have a specific forum for appraisals. You can post your question there.

Thread closed.
