I like Torelli bikes but don’t know them well. I do think this might be a bit pricey.

I was thinking the same thing (over priced). It's a beautiful bike, but it's not as vintage as it looks. I'm sure that effects the value. I was thinking of putting the value around $400? But, I'm no expert. I like it, but not at that price. Is this normal with pricing with bikes, or is it because of COVID-19?

This seller often has nice vintage bikes for a tad expensive on the local CL. They all seem well cleaned-up, but are all just a little too much. I messaged them about this Torelli before, and got very minimal wiggle room. Nice Torelli tough, whatever the price is!

Ya, I already have moved on from this bike. I just wanted to get an opinion with the people on this site and see what they thought? I'm leaning towards buying new "If" I even get a bike right now. I'm hoping for some great deals with newer bikes especially with all the potential incentives with the reopening of the economy. We'll see?

Not a fan of Torelli, sorry. It's a phony brand. An enterprising American bike store owner from Ventura, CA (and a jerk, if you ask me) contracts with Italian factories and slaps a faux-Italian surname on the frames. If a factory starts raising its prices, he switches over to another factory. That doesn't mean that the bikes are terrible, it just means that they're masquerading as something which they are not. Granted, some other "brands" have done the same thing.

If someone actually rode that bike with the stem and seatpost so high, I would be wary.
