    Wow, that one for $212 is a shocker. Even needing new nipples and spokes (due to rust and corrosion, so probably other stuff as well), that one looks like it was a good deal. Has I not been in...

    A very nice original example.
    Touch up the RD with some black paint and put it up on eBay with a BIN of $650.
    Be patient. It will sell for that.
