Kuwahara ET

Have an 82 kuwahara ET. Any value? Not in great shape but complete.

They appear to something out of the ordinary, but it depends on which model it really is. Is it one of the 40 custom paint jobs? Any pictures? Can't really make a guess on the value unless we can take a look at it.

Without a doubt. That being said, I really couldn't hazard a guess at value. I shouldn't, but will. Depending on just how used it is, I beat that it's worth at least $300-500. It was not one of their better models (chro-moly only on the front triangle, one piece cranks?) but someone out there will definitely have a fit of nostalgia over it and love to have it.

With higher end bikes of the era going for over $1000, I bet somebody would gladly shell out a few hundred to re-live their childhood.

Just my guess, based on no research. Good luck with it.
