A new new online marketplace was launched yesterday in the U.S. focusing on vintage cycling. Here you can find Italian (not only) bicycles, accessories, etc.. The announcement from the creator:
"I’m very pleased to announce the launch of a “A Great Vintage”, a brand new vintage bicycle online marketplace.
A Great Vintage offers an alternative to eBay and CraigsList and caters specifically to us - the vintage bicycle enthusiast and collector.
For those wishing to sell your vintage bicycles, parts, and clothing, you’ll find this site a refreshing change. There’s only a nominal charge of $0.50 per credit, and these credits are used for your 7-day postings (ads) and renewals. That’s all there is to it! We take no back-end transactional fees, and there’s never any hidden fees or charges.
In the near future, we will implement a “bulk credit” purchase option, wherein you can purchase several credits at once with a discount. Stay tuned for news on this and all other important site information by clicking on the “AGV News” link at the top of any page.
Buyers can browse freely - think CraigsList, but with all of your favorite vintage bicycle categories already organized for you, so your searches are more efficient and more fun! For instance, instead of one category for “Bikes” we have over a dozen, including Vintage Lightweights, KOF, Track, Touring, and more.
We leave all the pricing, transactions, and shipping up to you. Interested buyers contact you through an anonymous email, sent by our system (just like CraigsList).
Please use the “Contact Us” link along the top each page to let me know your thoughts on how to improve A Great Vintage. I’m looking to make this something we all use and enjoy.
This site is NEW, so you may find the categories eerily empty in the beginning. Don’t let that scare you. You’re joining at the brink of a site that I hope will see thousands of visitors per day.
Okay - It’s time to start having some fun. Head on over to A Great Vintage, register, and start selling and buying.
Please report all site bugs using the “Contact” page.
One final, important note. After placing an ad, save the ad confirmation email from A Great Vintage because this has the Listing Edit Key (same as the Ad Access Key) that you will need to edit and renew your ad."
