There is one for sale local for $100. It is an older bike from the 80s-90s. Stem shifters, 27" aluminum rims, sky blue with yellow vertical tube and yellow head area.
Looks like your basic entry level road bike from the era but I have never heard of them.
Is it worth $100? Is that a dent on the horizontal tube that I see? What do you know about this make and model?
My research seemed to turn up that Novara was an REI house brand.
