Pricing my Masi help(5 posts)

Pricing my Masi helpflying
Sep 10, 2001 1:52 PM
HI all,
Well Im getting a new bike soon.
I was going to sell my Masi Gran Corsa but have no idea of
how much to sell it for.
It is Colombus SL in fine shape with a full Campy Chorus group. Also has Campy record hubs with Campy Victory Strada rims & Vittoria CX tires.
Selle san marco rolls saddle & cinelli bar & stem.
What would you say its worth?
I have pics at this site near the bottom of the page. Its in top shape & never crashed. I always took great care of it. I almost hate to sell it but would like to see someone give it a good home.

I'm no good at pricing it, but it looks like a sweet classic. What size frame is it? Looks like maybe a 54 or slightly smaller. How many cogs does it use, 7 or 8? That stem looks long enough to land aircraft on!

Thats a 52
Funny you should mention that stem ;-)
Its a 14cm
Yes the frame was too small for me & I like to stretch out.
Actually the stem could go 12.5 - 13 cm & be ok.
Funny how you get use to something.
Thats a 7 speed.

probably a whatever you can get for it kind of deal. 52 isn't a super popular size. My guess is somewhere between $400 and $700. Maybe put it on eBay and set a reserve you would feel comfortable with. Hope you haven't damaged the frame by riding with the seatpost past the limit. Good luck.

I agree with Hank. From my experience, things seem to sell on eBay for pretty close to what they're worth. You might get lucky and get a few people bidding against each other and drive the price up. Set a starting bid or reserve that you can live with, but not so high that you scare away bidders. Make sure you include good photos (the one you posted is fine), and give a very complete description of components in your ad.
