You would have to ask. They might give you what you paid for it but I don't think your going to cash in and get retirement money from a museum for a '92. If that was a '81 in that shape it might be worth its weight in silver.
You could donate it and take the deduction. If your looking to cash in post it on ebay and be willing to deal with shipping.

I picked up this 1987 SR800 Black Lightning from the original owner. He commuted on it for one year then put it in the garage. He made a couple "upgrades" like the shimano 600 tri color cranks. As well as the bar end shifters and a saddle change. He also slapped on that ****ty foam bar tape stuff. The weird thing is he changed out the aero brake levers to some Non Aero Dia Compe Gran Compes. I cant figure out why. Ill repost it when I make my changes are done. These are just my before shots
My other pick up this week was a 1992 Schiwnn Paramount PDG Series 3. This is a surprisingly light and fun bike to ride. I was a little worried about the Shimano RX100 components but they work flawlessly. This bike also has tons of details from the candy blue paint with red splatter to the internal cable routing. I couldn't recommend one these enough. The Original owner, who I got it from had these weird cheater break levers installed. Ill take these off when I get around to it. Sorry lots of photos!
re-post from the gaspipe thread !!!!
(ps: can't get over the ****tiness of this camera that claims 18mega pixels... it's total garbage)
winter ride... since I broke my CX bike...
garlatti gas pipe / columbus EL fork / ofmega super competizione cranks / record bits / deore dx pedals / 3ttt record + itm + 105 levers / santé front brake, universal rear
looking to change the whole front-end soon, use my other universale centerpull with a bigger clearance fork, but still high end columbus.
Just picked up this Super Sport. I had this same bike back in the day, only it was magenta and white. I really loved this bike
Ooohh! That's a classy bike!

First reaction, MAN that is one nice looking bike! Next one, HEH I got the same bike! You will enjoy it I sure.
Got the SS this summer and put serious miles on it. Yours looks to be a taller frame then mine. I got lucky, it fits me perfect.
"Waiting for the crash"
Went riding this past Sunday to Mt. Rubidoux with some friends, so I thought I post a picture of my ride overlooking the city.
It is a steel lugged 20 speed DT shifter bike.

It was either 86 or 87 I think that the Cannondale R frames still had eyelets on the rear dropouts. A much more versatile bike than it should have been.
Thanks, I'm hoping to fully chrome the frameset, then re build
my early 80s medici pro strada with a mix of 6700 and 7800.
bikes. punk. not a bike punk.
Nice Technium Epic, here's my too small do it all bike. Hoping to save up for a cross check some day.
1988 Raleigh Technium 400 [Wish it had dt shifters]
