    Nishiki Roadie Frame

    Just want to see if my frame was worth anything. And if somebody could tell me maybe the year or anything. Thanks.

    Yeah, that little green decal you see in the picture says "High Tensile Tubing."

    Not much market value in my little mind. Unless someone had to have that model because they had one growing up.

    Not a whole lot as just a frame Nishiki's like this one seem to only get $100 or so for the whole bike orginal in good condition. For just the frame I would say maybe $30 or the whole bike as pictured $125.

    Just the frame/fork/headset? Maybe $40-50. High tensile tubing = low end.

    As pictured, maybe $150 for a hipster looking for a fixie.. But that market is dying. Fixed gear I hope, as it does not have brakes.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
