Good job! There are less knowledgeable buyers out there whom will pay more than the dedicated bike addicts on this board. If these buyers do their own maintenance and reconditioning they are ahead. Otherwise, they can easily spend $120 minimum + parts for a complete overhaul at the local bike shop. The addicts that know the level of work needed to bring a 20 + year old bike to safe and enjoyable riding condition and expect to pocket a few bucks by reselling to fund their own bike collection addiction, won't pay as much.
