    Help

    --------------------------------

    Hello,

    I recently acquired a road bike from a Japanese Surplus Store and I really don't know ifvthis bike is worth keeping or getting rid off. Tha bike groupset is Shimano 600. Handle Bar is by Nitto. Saddle is a Selle San Marco. 700c wheels by Mavic. The frame has stickers on Headpost, downtube, and upper tube all saying ADVANCE. The headpost is also by advance. There's another sticker on the seat tube saying "hand made/ friend/ since 1933. Can anyone possibly help me with the history of this bike, where it came from, and is it worth keeping? I can send photos if needed.

    Thanks,

    Al

    welcome almaite you know it's hard to sayI think you are the best judge,, take into consideration, how much did you pay! first of all,, then how does it ride and handle ! and do you like it? some of those components I've heard of!!! and I got a san marcos saddle on my trek 2300,, if you like it keep it, as long as it rides good,if you try to sell it you think you can make your money back,,,,,,,,
