I am planning to thin out my collection a bit to finance some projects and
make some room.
One of the bikes I am (reluctantly) planning to sell is this Groene Leeuw
from the 1970s. I bought it as an impulse buy about a year ago, but
it is really far too small for me, and will therefore not get ridden.
Groene Leeuw is a legendary Belgian manufacturer, many famous riders
rode their bikes at some point, and the team was successful, particularly in
one day classic races like RVV and Paris-Roubaix.
It has a 53cm seat tube.
The spec is top end for the time: full 531 tubes, campagnolo NR drive train, brakes, and high flange hubs. Ambrosio rims and tubulars. 3TTT seatpost and bars. VI Lux saddle. Just needs bar tape and lever hoods.
There are a few very small scratches to the paint, but these could be put up with or quite easily touched up.
I was thinking of asking around €450 (about £370) for this. It is a small size but in very good condition and a rare bike from a historic maker. Is this realistic?
I suppose I could make more by breaking up, but I absolutely do not want to
do that, nor do I want to sell to someone who would do so.
Thanks for looking and for comments.
