    you must live in shîtville. your marketing skills must suck. (yes, i've seen your lack of photography skills.) and you would lose that bet. i sell them easily here in seattle for at least (yes, at least) $400 in the spring/summer. i can even sell lower-mid level bikes for about that price if the original paint is nice.

    over and over again, you continue to show you are completely out of touch with the vintage bike market and other subjects covered here as well. you are often corrected, and you continue to double-down on ignorance.
    Yossarian: don't worry. nothing's going to happen to you that won't happen to the rest of us.

    you'd easily lose that bet.

    Here in Southern California, this bike would demand at the minimum, $600. Even at that price, it would sell quickly. Campy is a rarity in many circles, but it's still coveted. This isn't just your average Bianchi. It's a frikken Reparto Course in CELESTE GREEN!! Premium steel would just add to the excitement. Yeah. It would sell quickly.
