    Not nearly enough info. Picture is way too small to make any judgement on. What are the components?

    Very rough estimate, if it is actually a full chromoly frame + downtube shifters, aero brake levers, 700c wheelset (?) it should be worth at least $150 in good running condition. From what I can see it has the indicators of a better bike rather than cheap junk.

    I don't get into auctions on Craigs List. I would flag that ad (if it is on C/L). "Sweetest bike ever" = priceless.

    yokota road bikes are fairly uncommon and ive only ever seen two models, the legend and the other model escapes me.

    ive got a legend and quite like it. it is made out of tange 1000 and for a lower end frame seems to be fairly well made and has excellent paint quality.

    Eh, Exage Action was a lower end but solid group. I could see $200 being a fair price if the condition is good and ready-to-ride. Impossible to judge condition without seeing the bike in person or better pictures.

    Usually unheard of name = discount unless it was a custom made frame (this is almost certainly not as no one would get a custom frame to hang Exage on it.) Everyone loves Bianchi, Peugeot, Schwinn, etc. The names not well known get ignored unless the buyer is aware of them or does research.

    since it's my size, I may offer $150 since I think it's going to need some love. if no, well that's okay

    $150 sounds about right to me, but I'd definitely get the original chainrings.
