This bike has modern tires and new tubes. There’s rust that has entered under the paint around the bottom bracket, and there is some minor rust above it on the seat tube near the chainring. There is some surface rust on the fork, but the fork turns easily and is not kinked or bent.

For another $75, we will throw in the original Campagnolo Super Record tubular wheelset (no tires). The hubs spin smoothly, but could use a rebuild/re-greasing with fresh grade 25 ball bearings.

The bike seems pretty rideable as-is, but it is the shop’s recommendation that (in order to truly appreciate and ensure this bike will last the test of time) the new owner rebuilds the bottom bracket, gets the rust cleaned off and detailed professionally, replace the cables, swap out the brake pads and re-grease steering race, and oil the derailleurs.

These bikes never sell on eBay (not just are listed for, but actually sell for) for less than $1,000- we couldn’t find a single one listed for less- and we even found several listed for around $2,000.

We’re Big Dan’s Bicycle Shop, a program run by Middle Earth, a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that helps at-risk youths by helping them learn job skills after school. Our workshop is designed to teach children how to work on bicycles as well as how to repair them, and our volunteers helped with this bike’s repair. With your purchase will be an e-receipt and a thank you letter for your purchase.
