Centurion Ironman Master Dave Scott $350

Is this bike worth the price tag? looks like its in great shape and the components are quality based on my limited understanding of bikes. I was thinking of asking for $300. Any help you guys can provide is appreciated.

Just found some info about it in this link. Appears to be a '88 and the Tange 1 is a steel frame apparently. Appears to be the original parts too which are supposed to be pretty good. I'm getting the impression this bike isn't worth the $350 asking price, however. Maybe $200? Assuming the seller can handle a $150 price cut.

300 to 350 is about right for the Ironman, providing it's in good condition. However that Ironman doesn't have the original very light wheels. So I'd ask 150 to 200 to get my money's worth. Not sure of the going rate there though.

Dang, are the wheels really worth that much? I don't know if I can haggle this one down by 150.

In my area, and if that bike were in nicer condition, with its original wheel set, $325-ish sounds about right. I suggest $250-ish as is. Sacramento may be a hotter market which could raise the prices a bit.

Seller won't budge after $325. The market looks a little steep around here to begin with and I might commit. Any other opinions?

I paid $200 for my 1985 with mis-matched wheels which I think was below market value. It needed new tires so call it $275 for comparison. That said, $325 still feels a little high to me. For that money I'd like to see matching wheels, clean hoods and a 2nd bottle cage.

Show up with $300, point out those issues and make a deal.

I had someone offer me $200 for my '86 with full 600 Tri Color (including wheels). I promptly told him to pound sand.

With Ultegra 600, $325 is a good deal even with non-original wheels. I sold this GPX IM for $450, cause I paid a lot for it in the first place.


It has been replaced with this IM


And this IM, acquired last fall, is somewhere in the work queue

Seems about right for an Ironman in that condition. Maybe a little high. I have bought 3 Ironmen for about half that price or less for each one. That being said, each one was a real steal. They were all in very good to excellent condition.

Top end Centurion bikes are one of the few Japanese bikes that are as collectible as their Italian cousins. Very few Ironmen go for less than $325.
