I saw that when it first went up a couple of months ago and thought getting it. The original price was 75, and it looks close to the same. I wouldn't go over 125-150 for it personally.

I thought I remembered seeing it earlier and the background changed (i think), so it's probably someone just looking to double his money quickly

It didn't last long here either at that price (one of the reasons I didn't try to get it in the first place) but it's only a decent mass produced frame, nothing special and when you can go out and get an '80's trek with 531 for 200 to 300 with Campy components, the KHS just doesn't have it, at least in this market. It was probably around 250 to 300 new and looks to have the low level Shimano/SR stuff on it for the day.

who knew our market was so fierce?! even relists seem to be going fast. I know a girl who just sold a used huffy that needed new wheels for $200 too. I feel like i'm "doing it wrong" when I hear that

i could sell it for at least 200 in my market, especially if i gave it an overhaul. when i was saying prices i was saying what i would sell it for, not what i would pay for it lol

+1. Assuming ready to ride, it would sell for $200 here easy, probably a little more.
