Early 80s Team Miyata, value?

What would you guys value this bike at? Complete Shimano 600 components.

I don't know, but the quality of your camera lens adds at least $50. Gotta get that truck out of the frame, though.

The Shimano 600 tri-color rear derailleur, brakeset and crankset pictured is from the late 80s not the early 80s. The frame is earlier, judging from the top-mounting of the shifters and the single set of water bottle mounts.

Where are you planning on selling it? If I were to sell it locally on craigslist (I'm in the NYC metro area) I'd probably start by listing it high, maybe $275-$300, and work my way down. I don't think I'd sell it for less than $200-$225. This assumes it's been thoroughly cleaned, lubed and adjusted with fresh rubber and is in perfect working order.

It could possibly fetch more on ebay, but maybe not. Figure $250-$350 range.

$275 to $300, could take a while to sell at that point, but it would sell.

I think I would have priced this a little higher a year ago, but with the deals and bikes I've seen going for very low amounts lately I'd say;

$200-250 for a quick sale
$300-350 if you can sit on it for awhile.

The Garden Grove flipper is selling a decent bike for a change. Most are the $70 rust buckets.
