Miyata Team Pro appraisal

Hi there,
I purchased a Miyata Pro bike some years ago secondhand and never got around to researching anything about it. Here's what I do know. 57cm frame, Shimano 600 components all around and that's about it. The bike itself is in great condition having been ridden only occasionally. I'm looking to sell now but don't know what I should be pricing it out for. Any thoughts?

Thanks.

Is this is the bike that's up on Craiglist for sale?

Wow - worth more than I thought! I would've thought somewhere in the $200 range. But then again, I just sold a ladies Schwinn Varsity for $150. Shows what I know....

Nice bike, though. I really dig Miyata's.

The bike pictured is a 'Team' Miyata versus a 'Pro' Miyata which was one model down. The Team Miyata was available with Dura-Ace components. The bike pictured, if my 20 year old memory serves me right, retailed for $1700. Back in the day $1700 was a ton of money.
