I have cycle FOCUS MIRAGE ROAD BIKE,PERFECT CONDITION , BUT I DON T KNOW HOW OLD HE IS?WHAT IS ITS VALUE?
FOCUS MIRAGE :
7 SPEED
CHARGER lever and rear derailleur mech!
METEOR LITE brakes!
KINLIN 28 XI wheels!
CST SUPER HP tyres!


It looks like in very good shape, but it is not highly collectable. I would say 35 euro or something like that. Age: Early 80s low end bike I would say.

I have these gears that I'm curious about.
First is a Sachs Huret ECO rear derailleur;

Then a front mech, also Sachs;

And a band-on downtube shifter, but one side is missing;

Mate without seeming to be rude these were the lowest end of Sachs Huret kit, put on very low end bikes.
You'd be lucky to get the money for half a pint out of that lot. Bin em or give them to a cycling charity scheme because I don't think you'll ever sell them.

Hi, I am looking to sell my Motobecane Profil 2 but I have no idea what it is worth, I was wondering if someone on here could give me a ball park figure?
I've owned it since 1983 and it was a year or two old when I bought it.
It is completely original apart from the tyres and the toe clips are missing.
There should be a photo at the link below (if I've done it correctly!):

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Barry.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
Sorry I dont know a lot about bikes but from memory (Im at work and cant see the bike) the crank and pedals are stamped adamas, the hubs are shimano and the rims are made in Belgium, Heinmann I think is the make.
What do you mean by hoods? If its tyres, they are perished and will need replacing.

Please excuse my ignorance, I thought "hoods" was cycling slang for something but I've just clicked, its the hoods around the brake levers :lol:
They are fine with no signs of damage or perishing.
I feel like a complete fool now!! :?

Okay. I would say the levers (with fresh hoods) and bottle and cage could be interesting for people building a Dura-Ace AX bike. However without those parts it would be a bit difficult to sell the remaining :roll:

I would say somewhere in the 100-150 GBP range for your bike, but I do not shop in the UK market normally, so my knowledge is somewhat limited.

Chanced upon a bit of history that I am keen on buying... Spec is -

Woodruff F&F in red circa 1981. Full 1032/F Campagnolo Record group and period Mavic rims. Groupset includes seatpost and even the clips that hold the cable to the bike. Really nice original condition.

Owner tells me he has provenance to prove the bike belonged to Sid Barras. I haven't seen this yet but have no reason to doubt seller.

I have been to see it now and the owner (who is looking to move a few bikes) would like me to make an offer on it). I can see it is a quality thing but have no idea what something like this is worth. Would be interested in your views and valuations with and without the Sid Barras connection!
