    1987 Bridgestone Mile 112

    Hey there, gents!

    I posted this in the "Are you looking....?" thread, but the longer it sits the more I think I oughta just plunk down $100 myself. I'd be buying it specifically to clean, tune, and flip during the PDX springtime; according to the ad the tires were replaced last summer so I wouldn't have to worry about that, plus it's a buyer-friendly size. Saddle is clearly not original, but I've got a white one I can put on there. I'm thinking that it could bring $250-300 all cleaned up and with good presentation. Am I pretty close? Thanks!

    On the money! Sold this 8/2011 for $275. Rumor has it @OldsCOOL will pay big $$ for the barftape.

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    I concur with Oddjob, you have your values right on target.

    I think $275-300 is about right nicely cleaned up with matching bartape saddle and maybe nicer pedals with clips.
