Hello, All. I just joined, so be nice.
I'm looking to sell my classic 80s Mercian road racing bike. I have no idea what it's worth. I'll part with the frame only, or with the frame and all the components on it. Old Campy stuff. How should I research the price? I'm in Florida, USA, so I would also need to consider shipping fees for overseas buyers. The frame is Reynolds steel, so the weight is..well, down to fighting weight, so I can't imagine that shipping would be too high.
Don't know the exact numbers for the frame, but I'm 6'1" with a healthy inseam, and the bike fits me like a glove.
I bought the frame years ago from the original owner, who had never built it up, so it had zero miles on it when I got it. I built it up with old vintage Campy stuff and put only about 500 miles on it. That's all. I'm into off-road bikes, and I just never got around to spending much time on the Mercian, which is a real shame, as it's a great ride.
It needs a paint job. Florida has put some surface rust on some spots. This bike will inevitably be priced to sell, as it no longer interests me, and I'd very much like to move it along to someone who could give it a proper home.
