1992-1993?? Trek 1420

Hi, I'm taking a look at this bike today.
I've talked to two people who said they wouldn't pay more than $250, but would love to get more peoples opinions. Thanks so much!

The price is fair.

It looks the part of being rarely ridden. I'd repack the bearings just to make sure, and for the joy of working on lightly used parts.

I also live in the East Bay Area...so it isn't always difficult to find vintage bikes. But I really like how this one looks.

That's a really nice looking Trek. And that price would be quite reasonable in my area.

Looks super clean... if its ready to ride I would say $265 is a fair price... if it needs a tuneup... try for less.

Its a 1990 model, not 1992/1993. Year does not affect value in any way.
