    It looks more like a 56 than a 58.
    Anyway it is a desirable smaller size these days, and a very attractive looking bike.

    The mid 70's Super Mirage was a relatively nice bike - High Ten frame, but it had Alloy wheels, a nice cotterless crank and Suntour VGT-Luxe DR's - (One of the very best-functioning DR's ever made).

    It is hard to judge the condition from the pic, but if it is clean, and you lose the dork disk/turkey wings and do the essential service, it would be easily worth $150-170.
    It would bring even more if you install some DT shifters or Barcons, because people tend to associate stem shifters with dept store bikes.

    Definitely not a 58cm. I was thinking it's even smaller than 56cm. Pic resolution is not good enough to gauge condition and therefore vlaue. It's not all stock. It has replacement foam bar coverings and who knows what else.
