Anybody interested in a 72' Italvega w/ record...853
Jul 23, 2002 10:53 AM
This older man in my neighborhood wants to sell it but does not want to put an ad in the paper or the net (doesn't want to bother w/people calling and or having to ship it)
Anyways he will let me see it tonight (I'll take pic's)
I'm not interested in it, it's a 58cm and besides I'm starting another project(single speed Daccordi).

The specs are : 1972 Italvega
campy record
everything original (except seat)
including wheels w/ OG sewups
that still hold air!!
All for a whopping $100.00 dollars
If anybody is interested let me know. I will buy it from him and ship it to whomever wants. of course, you will have to pay for shipping and kick me down a little something something for taking it apart, putting it in a box and sending it.
well .....Spirito

if its in OK condition i would suggest you ebaying it for him.

for the little extra effort (pics, listing fee, a few emails, packing and shipping) you can cover a little towards the daccordi build and get the "old man" some more $'s than he was asking. if its in OK condition and is complete campagnolo Nuovo Record from the same vintage it is worth well more than $100.

im interested but only as a profiteer and i have salvaged, scrapped and parted enough bikes that my cycling soul is killing me already. even if you dont want to ebay it post a for sale listing on the Classic Rendezvous email list. you have to have a sale price (no best offers) but if its in good condition, complete and functional then $250 is a fair asking price.

italvega's were a desirable frame back then and were well made. i assume the columbus decal is intact, decals are in place, chrome is presentable, paint is mostly there.

Old men could always use a few extra bucks.

Brother Spirito, are you growing a conscience now, mate?Ahimsa

The pirate leaves easy plunder due to an ailment of the soul?


And where's my damned interview you promised?

The mention of Italvega has gotten the old memory juices flowing. In 1973, I traded my Gitane Tour de France for an Italvega Super Special - the one the old man apparently wants to get rid of. I rode it until 1986, when I bought a Somec. The Italvega rode much more stiffly than the Gitane, but it was a heck of a lot faster and better handling. I traded the Italvega to a buddy in exchange for an electronic drum machine. He's still got the bike. The drum machine, meantime, gathers dust in my garage.
