trek 1400

what do you think a good asking price for my 1400 would be? the parts are all over the place, itm stem, nashbar bars, shimano exage sport brakes, dura -ace cranks and freewheel, not 100% on derailleurs. new cables and wrap. matrix rims. overall very good shape.. whats your opinions? thanks

if the DA crankset has dustcaps and is in decent condition, sell that for 90 bucks or so on ebay, replace it with something from the coop, sell bike for 250 still.

the cranks have the dust caps, they were in bad shape when i bought them but i sanded out the nicks and buffed a nice shine out of them. the bike came with a decent triple crankset, i may put that back on and sell separate.yeah winter in indiana is a terrible time to sell, i'm gonna have a torpado beta on the market pretty soon also. thanks

I'd take off the DA crank and sell it separately or keep it for a future project. If you leave it on the bike you're just giving it away. Around here it could bring $250 in season, but right now you will struggle.
