    What deal qclabrat? I have never seen or touched a 1989 520. I have a 1984 520 and a 1986 520 Cirrus.

    I sold a refurbished 1983 520 for mid $300's last spring.

    Looks pretty clean, but probably needs wheel hubs and bb cleaned and regreased. The seller ask of $250 with new rubber isn't a bad deal. Good luck!

    1989 has canti brakes, standard rack. Even needing a refurb and all new consumables, $400-$500, depending on paint condition and wear and tear.

    If you can twist the quill, then turn the bike upside down, squirt some pb blaster down the hole of steering tube and wait overnight. You should be able to twist it out by morning.

    I believe the biggest material difference between PR10 and PX10 is the 531 main tubes vs 531 entire bike. You pointed out non original and non matching rims, along with a replacement deraiileur. ...

    There is a patent on the original design. You could change it a bit, for example, make the two front pieces cover the ends of the "arms" from the wall.
