It's a 1987, Tange Infinity, all Shimano 105 6-speed, Biopace. When I got it used it was in immaculate condition, save for two scratches from the person not knowing how to pack a bike for shipping. I pulled off pretty much everything and ran it with a modern group so put back together, it will be all original except for tires & saddle (I have a old Vetta SL from that time so at least it will be period correct). When I looked on Ebay, it seemed like this might fetch $200 if I was lucky and then I'd have to pack it and risk the shipping process, that's why I just assume hang it as a conversation piece. Plus, maybe if I ever have grandkids, they can maybe make some money off of it in the year 2045!
