I picked up an old Trek yesterday, it's a bit rough but fixable, the worst part is the two bent crank arms. The bike is all Shimano 600 with the fancy designs or 'Arabesque'. I went to several bike shops and found one that still has a new set of cranks on the shelf. When I asked how much they said to make an offer?
The box had an old price tag of $59.99 on it, so I said $59.99 works I guess, but was told that was the price back in 1980.
What are these worth brand new? I looked on eBay, all that are listed there are rough, I want brand new. The same shop also has new derailleurs, a matching 14-24 freewheel, chain, brakes, levers, headset, hubs, and seat post all from that same group. I can make this bike new again. It would only leave me needing to find a set of rims for it.
What would be a fair offer?
