I normally post over on Classic and Vintage but I need some MTB owner expertise. My church has an annual Yard Sale this coming Saturday. We have two mystery vintage MTBs (his and hers) that were donated. As you can see from the pictures they are both white with no decals, head badges, nor even any serial numbers. The only mark I can find is on the Man's (M) just below the seat post clamp. It is a very small "735" (possibly Reynolds or Columbus tubing?). They are lugged steel frames and the lugs and cast dropouts are the same on both. They do not appear to be repainted. The paint on the Man's is very good, the Woman's (W) paint is fair with some scratches.
The Woman's bike has a chrome front fork, Shimano LF hubs, a Shimano UG 6 speed cassette, Shimano Exage 300CS RD and a Suntour XC Sport 7000 FD, Shimano 200 GS shifters/levers, no name cantilever brakes, Sakae triple crankset, no name alloy rims, and a LaPrade seat post.
The Man's bike has a painted front fork, Suzue HF hubs, a Suntour(?) 6 speed freewheel, Suntour XCD 6000 Acushift derailleurs, Suntour Acushift shifters/levers, Suntour cantilever brakes, Shimano Biopace triple crankset, Araya alloy rims, and a no name (but nice) seat post.
Could anyone help us price these bikes? Or if you have an interest in one or both and don't want to see them go sailing out of here for $10, and can make a donation for a good cause, PM me.
("M" on each picture = Man's MTB --- "W" on each picture = Woman's MTB)
Thanks for your help!
