Rossin Record

I'm thinking about selling my Rossin Record, which we've been discussing on this post: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...l#post22671965

I did some minor fixes, including new tape and fixing the bars/cables.

I'd say it's worth $600 to $900, depending on the market. Used bikes sales have slowed a lot recently though... Good luck with the sale.

It's a bit of a frankenbike with that mix of Csmpy and Suntour components, which pulls down the value a bit as most would want everything to match, so I'd be leaning .more towards the $600 estimate.
BTW, I'd take off that skewer type seatpost clamp and replace it with a conventional seatpost bolt. Those tend to damage the seat lug clamp ears.

Hit or miss as to what you might get. If someone in that size is looking for a record, the value is in the frame I would think.

Unfortunately what you get out of it might not be enough to offset the regret if you sell it.

Will Sell for $750 plus shipping

I'd be willing to part with it for $750, plus the cost to ship it safely.
Note: For some reason I'm not allowed to post in the "For Sale" area, does someone know why?

One thing I would do is to properly adjust the length of your brake and shift cables. Both shift levers are in the wrong position for the actual gear that the chain is in, E.G. your front shift lever is in the position I would expect if your chain were on the larger chainring and the rear looks as if you wouldn't be able to shift to the largest cog. As for the brakes, both brake releases are open, Your brake cables should be adjusted so that you can close the release levers and have proper braking

And the rear housing looks short. Route it on the DS of the stem to minimize the near kink at the lever. IMHO the housing should not rub on the rear seat lug, save the paint. I don't have a NDS pic but you can get it from this pic.

A paid membership is required to post in the “for sale” section, and I believe trying to sell items in this section is against the rules.
