I actually wrote a question asking If he'd sell the frame and fork separately, then didn't send it, lest the treebay constabulary found out...

Actually, my comment was about the person asking the question - but I guess it kind of rings true both ways.


Text to seller:
Hi Bob, would you be interested in selling just the frame and fork of your Daccordi? Can't hurt to ask. Kind regards, Dan

Response:
Yes, $1000.

My reply:
So, no then. That's more than your listed price for the entire bicycle! Thanks for your reply, have a great day!

Don't know why he would respray in the non original colours, but still 531 as stipulated, it would not make a great fixie, rather, a roadie :)
campagnolo shifters are a plus, shimano 105 calipers for an additional 20...
wouldnt hurt to ask for BIN price i suppose. small st but long top tube.
531

Dan, You're just going to have to bide your time. I doubt he'll sell it at that price so wait until he's tried to sell it three or four times then ask again. It'll be on Gumtree next I reckon. Keep your eyes peeled.

I think you're right there. Once it comes down it'll be the quick and the dead, though...

Repco Eurosport Tri-A with a horrendous re-spray, seriously devalued that one, poor thing.

Another 531 Gazelle, this time a roadie with a more realistic start price, who's keen?

Tri-colour gruppo, wih a nice set of wheels have to be near worth buying for the running gear alone.

Get on you Perth guys.

Saw it yesterday and the seller has mentioned there had been a lot of interest.. She was also happy to ship if the local bike shop would organise it. No buy it now price... Sadly.

I'm going to relist my Europa on your Springfield bike co site for $950. I can pay you with a lemon tree.

Ouch, shivers, I was going to ask $75 for the Superlite frame I got from munga (for $100, but I'll cop the loss), after seeing those prices maybe I should ask 2 hungie for it.
