Odd mix with old center pulls, 27 inch wheels, etc.. I had one that I sold earlier this year, with aero brake levers and 700c wheels. Sold it for $200. Mine was one model up, a RS940. Of course, this is Hooterville, not Huntington Beach. Mine was a large size, which is harder to sell.

No chain, no cables, old tires, not rideable. Here, as is, $100. Its a project. $100 would be tough here. OK, main picture does show a chain, but no cables. Buyers here want bikes ready to ride. Those buying projects (like me) look for hefty discounts.

The RS940 had a better frame, triple butted, full cromoly bike. The one I sold was fully rehabbed, bearings, grease, cables, indexed RX100 components, new chain and cassette, fresh bar tape, etc.

Guy that bought it from me apparently thought he got the deal of the century, as I saw it relisted two weeks later for $500. Then relisted for $450, then lower, then lower. Saw it two weeks ago for $225. He has missed the bike season here, so it still may not go.
