1975 Roberts

A co-worker who no longer rides has a Roberts that he has had since new back in 1975. He is asking $1000.

He tells tales of riding thousands of miles on this bike and I see a bike that reflects that. Closely inspecting each lug and joint, I do not see any imperfection in it's construction.

Do you see anything that would concern you? What do you think it is worth?

Lovely frame with great details. A survivor. But $1000? Wait until he outfits it with full Nuovo or Super Record

$700-$800 max with that parts mix. My two cents...

It's a nice frame, but it's not like it's in perfect condition, and the parts are a mixed bag. Personally I think $500-$600 is more realistic.
