    1987 Panasonic DX-5000

    I bought this very mint Panasonic this past spring. It is 100% original right down to the tape and tires which are still soft and had almost zero wear when I bought it.

    Full Shimano 600ex groupset in stellar condition. 59cm Tange No.1 frame with nearly flawless paint.

    I am interested to know what it would be worth in an online market.

    Thanks

    Beautiful bike, would probably bring just as much or more in a hot market like Vancouver, than selling on ebay. And from Canada, you have to be willing/ready to ship internationally.

    I am a big fan of Panasonic, I have several Panasonic built Schwinns right now, two Prologues, a Paramount Series V and a 1973 World Voyageur.

    $400.

    It's worth nothing. Nada. Zilch. In fact, I'll do you a favor and give you $10 for it.

    Seriously, that's a nice bike and I'm drooling. I never come across local deals like that. I have no idea what it's worth, but I paid $60 for my '81 Panasonic Sport. That is a way better bike than the Sport.

    I sold a DX4000 for $400 with a new $200 shimano wheelset on it. Ir rode REALLY nicely with a 105 group so I imagine yours rides even nicer!

    Thanks for the responses everyone. wrk101 I think you a right, the Vancouver market is quite inflated and I could quite easily collect $400+ for this if I were to sell it. Although our summer has been really crappy and prices have been lower than in the past.
    It sure is a beautiful bike, almost too much so for me as I tend to get paranoid any time I leave it locked-up outside somewhere. The ride is a nice blend of stable handling and responsive acceleration with just enough whip in the rear stays that you feel it when you really put the hammer down.

    The bio-pace cranks are literally the worst thing about the bike

    In New York you could probably get $500+ for it (then the idiot would cover all branding with electrical tape and convert it to a fixie). Heck, if it wasn't just a little too short for me I'd make you an offer. Awesome bike.
