Hi everyone. I am new here and not an experienced biker so please forgive.
I was given a Univega road bike that a lady has had for many years. It needed new tires so I had to put those on before I could try it out. After doing so I decided I probably need a more upright bike. So I'd like to get some feedback on what this bike is worth. I'd like to sell it for at least what I paid to put the tires on! Can you tell me what a fair price is? I like to sell things for a good deal, not the absolute max that it's worth.
The writing on the frame says of course Univega. Additionally it says Tange champion chrome molybdenum double butted steel tubes. On the handlebar it says Sakae Custom Road Champion. I think its a ten speed. It rides nice and is quiet, brakes work but probably could be improved. Slight rust on the 'chrome colored' fixings near handlebars etc. Quick release wheels on front and back.
Is there a way to tell the year it was made? It is easily vintage IMO. I will post a picture after it's bath this morning.
