Kabuto Takara road bike

It just needs a seat other than that its mint. I couldn't find a lot of info online about it. I was hoping you guys could give me a value.

Figure half the retail price on a bike like this so $90 complete ready to ride. Figure a substantial discount for not being complete and the cost of a seat post and saddle, so $40 or so as presented.

Very heavy bike also. I think it's over 30 lbs.

That's not a C&V bike. Not worth much. Might be a good parts bike. You might be able to re-use the wheels on something else.
