No.

Sometimes I have two posts for the same city, so I can top post daily.

Again, pound it on CL, and don't give up. It may sell quickly, it may not. And you have to get on FBM.

You will...

The seller should have filled the gap. That is amateurish.

You can get online prices on CL and FBM in large metros. Especially DC, NYC, Boston, LA, San Francisco.......
I always have.

Need to research SOLD prices on ebay.

Typically local pickup kills the sale, but since you are in a big city, I would consider that.

Pitfall #1: Seller does not disclose defects.

Pitfall #2:...

I can't believe you can't sell that on NYC CL. Boston CL, or Philly CL. You can post it on on three ya know. And top post every 48 hours.

If that were 2-3cm larger, I'd be all over it for a full restoration and fair-weather rides. A fascinating bike with history.

Yes correct, like you guessed "A more typical Bianchi/Campy vintage bicycle" that is closer to the eroica 1987 cutoff year for technology updates. It is more cool to be riding an older vintage bike...

Sadly, in a local market vintage bikes often go for just a fraction of the parts. Do not be surprised if a local buyer ends up parting it out and then tripling his money.

You're welcome. I may have been a little too optimistic based on what other, more experienced posters contributed. As for ebay, unfortunately there is a very similar Zeus (in worse shape, admittedly)...

I've seen this bike posted before. If it were local to me, I'd buy it. I've kept my eye out for a Zeus for a while and I prefer a bike that is a rider than a collector's piece. You live in a big...

...most of those older, better quality Zeus components have a pretty high value in the used parts marketplace, so my guess would be that someone who traffics in that stuff regularly will probably...

I think the local pick up option makes a ton of sense. The "bay" will give you a broad audience, and the buyer will have the opportunity to inspect the bike before leaving. Once they leave with it,...

Isn't there a vintage bike auction house somewhere in NY (or at least an antiques auction house that did periodic auctions of vintage bikes)? Sure, you'd have to give them a big cut, but that might...

Will probably be purchased by a collector who also rides.

First choice is eBay where you can reach the broadest market. Since you have eliminated that optionů.

Second choice is discount until it sells here. Presentation and Price are the two variables...

I'm not an expert by any stretch but that is a cool bike. Put the original saddle back on, for heaven's sake get rid of those awful grips, put "L'Eroica ready" in the description, and this sells on...

It’s an interesting bike, if it was my size and close to me I’d off between $250-300, but I’d have to give it a good looking over first, for the novelty of having an all Zeus bike. The fact that it’s...

At the extreme risk of starting a big fight, I'll suggest you might take a look at getting shorter crank arms. 165mm are what I use and they allow me to get more aero comfortably. Possibly the...

If it's old and you like it, it's vintage. If it's old and lots of people like it, it's classic.

If it's old and nobody likes it, it's trash.
