Price for a used bike?
 
I know this could be a tough one. What would you sell/buy this bike for? It's a 1991 Bianchi Virata road bike. Japan brazed Tange tube set, Ultegra 7 spd., upgraded to mavic open pro CD rims (one new), new cateye astrale computer, michelin supercomp tires (one new), new cassette and chain, 2 zefal bottle cages, paint is faded, shifts well, frame integrity is good. The new parts cost me $214. I was thinking about selling for $300-$350...thoughts? My friend wants the bike and told me to figure out what I wanted for it.

It would probably sell for $200, max. You could try selling it on eBay, but now is a lousy time to sell a bike.

Agreed... but keep the Cateye off. It's a good computer and you won't get any more for the bike with it included.

Some keypoints you guys missed--$200 in new parts (I won't sell at a loss) and that I'm already selling it to a friend who wants it badly as his road bike cracked near the rear dropout/is worn out overall. All I needed was the price range. It's 58 c to t btw, since you asked.
