What to do with this Le Tour...

I have aqquired this 53cm Le Tour, parts:

Araya 27x1 1/4 W/0 HP Wheel in front,
Weinman 6x630 27x1 1/4 in back
Shimano Altus Centeron Levers
Busted Vetta Seat
Sugino SUpermaxy Crank
Schwinn Release Brake Handle
Cant tell the brakes, say "Compe" on the pads
AISI Tubing 1020
Mallard Quick release
Shimano SIS rear derailleur
No front derailleur
Needs wiring to back brakes & Derailleur
SAKAE Randaner Handlebars

Pretty damn rusted...



These bikes are listed $200+ in my Local CL. Should i flip it?

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.
