as i have changed my old mid-90s raleigh mountain bike into an urban commuter, here's what i've spent so far on parts:

new pedals: $50
new rigid fork: $60
new crankset: $75
new wheelset: $100
new head set: $50
new saddle & seatpost: $65
new bull horn bars: $60
new stem: $50
new brake levers: $30
new shifters: $40
new cables & housing: $20

TOTAL: ~$600

now, that wasn't all at one time, as i've been tinkering around with things here and there for over a year, but i think i'm more or less "done" for now. also, i didn't include the cost of things like new tires, chain, cassette, or brake pads because those are more regular "wear & tear" items that have to replaced frequently anyway. i'm also not including any other add-ons like lights, bottles cages, other superfluous stuff.
