If there is one notable feature to the vintage lightweight racing bicycle market it is the variability of prices. Often, that is the result of a lack of market information. If somebody were to call a few people who deal in vintage lightweights, or perhaps ask a VRBN subscriber, then they would have a reasonable amount of market knowledge.
Instead, many buyers and sellers enter the market only once – i. In such a circumstance, the price it is advertised at may be far below current market levels. Sometimes, though, they make the opposite mistake. If an older bike is well abused but the seller thinks it is a much better bike than it really is, then the price may be way too high. Such a mistake is common with production bikes that were originally expensive but in reality were rather mediocre.
Prices also vary considerably even when buyers and sellers are well versed in the field.
A Trip to Mercian Cycles
I have bought a secondhand mercian frame to be the base for my new touring build. Getting 2 forks with it — one in silver with higher rake to avoid toe overlap esp when using mudguards. The individual tubing and components for the frame are then set aside or ordered-in by a frame-builder and boxed ready for the build date.

It had completely different lugs and a drastically changed tubing. This one is a 2nd gen Master dating from about with internal rear brake cable routing. It is thought that it isex Team Wordperfect bike… It is fitted with a Suntour Superbe Pro groupset… The bike is is in very good not heavily used condition but has quite a number of marks to the paint.
We built it up for a customer two years ago; he had it repainted at Argos in a classic blue red combination and we built it up with a mix of old and new parts — Stronglight 49D chainset, Suntour Cyclone GT gears, GB bars and stem, Brooks saddle, MKS quill pedals, Shimano cantilever brakes and wheels with Campag large flange Tipo hubs on Mavic MA2 clincher rims. He did not use it a lot and has now part-exchanged it back for us to build another frame up for him. It has a real charm and the Super Champion gear gives it a very distinctive look.
