    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.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    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.
