    1978 Motobecane Sprintour Shimano 600 Weinmann Brakes...Pls help with value

    Hello,
    I'm new to the forum and find all the info quite interesting! I'm not a regular cyclist these days but used to be in the past. Hoping you all can give me some help with this bike.

    Purchased new in 1978
    19 1/2" frame (I'm very short)
    Shimano 600
    Weinmann brakes
    Weinman back wheel - front wheel replaced with Araya
    2040 high resiliency tubing
    Motobecane "training" seat
    color is *** metal gray

    I would take a photo of it but it's in the garage and it's only 10 degrees outside....brrrrr.

    Condition is very good - rode it lightly over the years. Most parts are original and not too many scratches on the original paint. With some reconditioning it could be back to its glory days.

    What do you think it would be worth? If I've left any info out, let me know.

    Thanks!
    Martha

    Martha, location can make as big of a difference in value as condition. What part of the world do you live in?

    Come on, brave the cold for a couple of minutes and take some pics of your bike. It will help a lot towards helping you.
