  1. Interesting to remember - a top of the line pro bicycle cost about what I paid for a mid-range motorcycle (Yamaha RD400)in the same year. The equivalent bicycle today? Probably $10K? About the same as a current mid-range motorcycle.

  2. However the Confente might sell for $8,000 now...the Yamaha RD400?

  3. Hard to say, but a vintage RD400 in showroom condition might fetch a fair price....is someone willing to pay $8K for a Confente these days?
