1997 Bianchi Alloro
 
Bianchi Alloro Full Campagnolo 57cm 40 Miles | eBay

Thinking about purchasing this bike but have no idea how to price older bikes.
Is it in the correct price range?
Any advice/input appreciated, thanks!

Keep looking.

Seriously?
Is it simply the price or is that not a decent/desirable older bike in your opinion?

It's a nice older bike, but nothing special, and the price is high.

Bianchi + Celeste = overpriced

I hear ya but assuming he is correct that he is the original owner and it only has 40 miles on it I like the idea of having a nice almost 20 year old bike in that condition.
I would most likely offer $700 and hope for the best.

the bike is still nothing special. It's like a 18 year old version of the steel Motobecane.

He is not correct. Check out the handlebar tape, the rear cassette. No way that's 40 miles.

and the crankset has 10spd rings on an 8spd bike. probably not the OEM parts.

Everyone's used bike only has 40 miles on it when they go to sell it

Owned by a grandmother, only took it around the block on Sundays!

If you like it and have the funds go for it.

They want a grand? Lol... Hell no... I'd go buy a modern and new road bike for that...
