    Shimano Altus Centeron Levers
    Busted Vetta Seat
    Sugino SUpermaxy Crank

    Cant tell the brakes, say "Compe" on the pads

    Later (post '83?) Le Tours, Le Tour Luxes & Super Le Tours with quality butted tubing (4130, True Temper, Columbus) might fetch $200 or more depending on the market, model and condition. But 1020 tubed ones won't.

    Here in depressed Detroit I paid $150 for an '85 Super Le Tour (Columbus Tenax tubing, Suntour Cyclone derailleurs, etc) in very good condition.

    I'll leave the "what to do with it" question to the experienced flippers, however I doubt you'd get enough out of it for what you need to put into it. But if it's your size & you're up for a project it might be an OK ride.

    "People who spend most of their natural lives riding iron bicycles over the rocky roadsteads of this parish get their personalities mixed up with the personalities of their bicycle as a result of the interchanging of the atoms of each of them and you would be surprised at the number of people in these parts who are nearly half people and half bicycles." - Flann O'Brien, The Third Policeman
