Nishiki Tri-A Performance Equipe-1989

The bike is in pristine, almost unridden condition, with complete Suntour GPX component group, including hubs. Pretty wild paint too, with all colors except white being florescent.
Thanks

I guess I wasn't to specific in my purpose in listing here. Does anyone have any estimates as to the value of this bike if I were to sell it?

That is a good question. In its day it was a very nice bike, and IIRC GPX was the equivilant of 105 so that would make this like a Brava level bike and I see them for $250-300+. I would say if this was mine I would ask about $250 or so. You just need to patient and wait for the right buyer come along who wants or like that bike.



CL and offering for local sale only is the easy way, but if you have a shop near you and get an estimate for packing and shipping you could offer to have it shipped for an extra fee. if your willing to deal with ebay that will broaden you customer base too.

Looks like about a 56 cm frame (my guess from the picture). I agree with an asking price in the $250. You might find a buyer looking for a Miami Vice (similar paint job) Centurion Ironman that would settle for this.

I figured there was a very low chance you'd actually be near me. You are. I don't know what you're planning to do with this bike but if we can agree on a place and price I'd be interested. Sorry to derail the thread but I can't PM yet. If you give me your email you can delete it once I've got it.
