What we have here is a 1989 Specialized Rock Combo- an early attempt at a drop bar MTB. It has the BB1 bar, Suntour Bar-cons, and I think everything on it is original except for the tires, tape and saddle. I think it is the medium size, 19.5. It has lots of cosmetic injury but functions ok. I picked it up recently in really, really rough shape.....dirt, grime and rust to say the least. Spent a few hours cleaning it up and adjusting it, only to find out I don't really like riding it.
Anyway, it is a $50 bike at best around here.....and that's with the $40 of new tires and saddle I put on it! However, I noticed (much to my surprise) that one sold on e-Bay recently- auction 121119172704. I can't tell for what price due to e-Bay hiding it, but I am really interested in opinions of what the online market will bear on something like this. Particularly if anyone here has actually bought or sold one of these. I know they are not common bikes; but this one is not in great shape....but then again neither was the e-Bay one.
Additionally, I am interested in opinions on the value of parts/components....is there anything in there that would make parting it out more lucrative?
If it was yours.....what would you do with it.....??
Thanks in advance.
