Value of this Nishiki Prestige?

What do you think of this bike? What's a good price to pay for it?

Those are really nice bikes. $250 seems about the market value when serviced and road ready - so a "good price" would be less that that!.

PS - This thread will likely be moved to the Appraisal forum by the mods.

I sold an identical bike for $250 and it went fast. Note it was fully serviced and ready to go.

What is going on with the back side of that seat post?

Do the tires match?

Tires that do not match are no big deal, but I take them as a sign of lack of attention to detail (look for a discount).
