I recently picked up a performance road bike frame that has Tange Prestige tubing and shimano 600 components(full excetp the STI levers). I was wondering what year this might have came from and if it was worth it? I recently discovered that one of the rear dropouts is bent and I'm considering returning it. I figure the dropout can probably be bent back, but I'm disappointed that the seller didn't tell me
I paid $162
I'm no expert but it looks real good to me and I'm kinda cheap when it comes to buying bikes. was it shiped to you ? The damage could have come then. In any case I dont think a classic friendly bike shop would charge to much to bend it strait for you. The place I go it would be under $10. The paint jod is way cool

That is a pretty decent score picking up a Tange Prestige bike with a bunch of 600 components. Now all you need is a saddle, seatpost and some wheels.
