Posted this in the vintage thread also and was also curious about the value?
It was dirty but I already have it disassembled and it cleaned up real nice.
Should have it ready for a test flight in about a week.
I rescued this baby from the aluminium scrap heap at the recycle center. :eek:
Don't get me wrong, I'm all about recycling but holy smokes lets not get carried away!
No plans to sell it. The frame fits me like a glove and if it rides nice it will be my new daily rider.

Glad you rescued that bike. Only Wally World bikes deserve the heat of the recycling furnaces.
A Technium is a nice bike. OK, it's not a 531 steel Raleigh, but it does have steel forks and stays and offers a very comfortable ride while weighing a little less than it's counterparts. I'd estimate the value, after complete rebuild, at around $150. As is, it's worth around $40.
You will not be disappointed if you keep it. They make good riders.
Thanks for the info.
Now I know not to get to carried away fixing it up.

not a bad lookng bike for that price. what are the components/wheels? the seat post looks like somekind of two bolt campi clone
The brakes are side pull Dia Comps. Nothing fancy but nice and lite.
Seat post is a short Laprade.
Wheels could use new rims. I ustabe pretty good at wheelbuilding. Looks lie time to rekindle that old skill.
Crankset, handle bars and stem are SR. They seem t have a better finish than usual?
Shifters are Suntour.
All in all a pretty light bike. I can't wait to get it on the road.
