Moser Columbus SLX Valuation Required

I have a Moser Columbus SLX from the mid 80's. The bike is in good condition and I was wondering what the value of the bike is. I have photos should anyone be interested.

You'll need to post good, detailed photos to get anywhere near an idea of valuation. A good start would be posting a view of the drive side, where the action is, component-wise.

Thanks for the reply. Based on the photos submitted, any ideas on value. I would appreciate any feedback as I'm a little inexperienced when it comes to older bikes.

It looks to be in good shape, I would think that you could sell it as it sits for $400 very easily. If you want to work a bit, you could probably get $300 to $400 for the frame/fork/headset on eBay and then another couple of hundred for the parts.

Agreed.

Should work out fine for you.
