Yes I agree, a very attractive price, however I think it is actually an indication of how few collectors are out there for the 1940s and earlier bikes. A very shallow pool and most of the "bathers" know each other.

I think we have put a higher value on these old soldiers than what the actual market price is. And most are looking for that Bianchi or Legnano, so have little or no interest in a Dalcezzi.

Any opinions?
