I’m starting to think these wheels are no longer desirable to the RC community strange. Still for sale til the end of the month or they will hang in my garage as art.
I'm seeing a shift to making bikes stock as a 'classic' rather than adding performance upgrades, but Marchesini's are gorgeous and period correct, so who knows? The price is fair, that's for sure, especially considering they're in good condition. Always amazes me what people will spend on an exhaust when rims are probably the best performance upgrade you can make...

Those wheels are sweet, but I would be afraid to scratch, nick, or ding them. I was going to buy some forged aluminum versions of the wheels above, but found some modern CBR 1K wheels for $600. Not as light, but the price was so good, I couldn't pass it up.

Just like the old muscle cars, Porsches, and other classics - if properly modded they are worth good money. But if you want great money, it has to be bone stock perfect, and collectable.
