Hi,

here`s my couple of decades of old Benotto time trial bike. It rides a like a dream and looks pretty decent while hanging on the wall during wintertime. Oh well, pedals could be switched to some vintage campagnolo aeropedals if I ever get hold one of those.

What`s the price tag with these out-of-date tt-bikes nowadays, as I might be selling this one in the near future. How much do I dare to ask or should I rely on eBay? Thanks!

Anywhere from 500-800 as a rough guide I would guess.

Agreed, don't sell! We should start a TT bike thread.

It is a beautiful bike but it resembles something Salvador Dali might have made.

Actually I'm tempted to ask did you leave it on the windowsill in the sun or in the back of the car on a hot day :)

Don't sell that, friend. You'll never find another like it

luv'n'stuff

Thanks for your comments. I`ve decided not to sell it.

I just got a nice pair of old campagnolo pedals and clips and have been doing some serious polishing with various parts, I`ll post new pictures soon.

That's very nice, I like it a lot.

Why not bring it to the Classic Bike Display on April 18th? This year's theme is Italian Bikes (but there'll also be plenty of others there!) and I'm sure there won't be many TT models.
