I recently acquired a 1988 Trek 360 from a friend who bought it off of ebay. When it arrived yesterday, he decided he did not want it(after having it shipped to my house so I could reassemble or "maybe make into a fixie"). He was vague why he didn't want it, something about it "looked too old fashioned" but it is in my size. He payed $350+shipping for it, I traded him a low end fixed gear bike I had put together awhile back, and called it a day. I figure the components on it have to be worth something. I would rather have it back to down tube shifters anyhow. Girlfriend had commandeered the camera so I can't post pics, but heres the auction link:
So I'm wondering the following:
1. What are the tubing specs on this bike? It was made of True Temper gold label RC1 double butted. The only True Temper specs I can find anywhere are on vintage-trek.com for RC2. I was kind of holding out for a 531 Renyolds 400T Elance, but if this is a similar tubing quality I might build this up instead.
2. Can anyone tell me the model numbers of the Dura Ace derailleur and brifter setup, and what I should ask for them if I sell?
3. Did my buddy get a decent deal? It seems he did by ebay standards, as he only won with $350 bid at the last second, but what about real world standards? I have no idea what the true value of this thing might be.
