I talked to the guy and he's looking for $150. I can't find much info on these. He didn't know the year.

Assuming the paint and rims are vg, no dents, as presented, I would pay up to $150 for it.

600 & 105 & Dura-Ace components with a Reynold's DB 531 frame. From the pix, the paint looks fantastic. Some good deals out there on K.C. CL. I might rent a truck and head out there to collect up a few.
If it is in good shape, I'd try $120 because of the seat...then I'd put a black Brooks B-17 on that little puppy if I got it. $150 would still be crazy cheap where I am if it is in great condition.

This is a good deal at $150. I'd buy it and stop asking questions.

Ditto

Probably $500 on e-bay. He who hesitates is lost.

I would say it's a great buy worth about twice the asking price as presented on CL. I would say go buy it that's a very nice full 531 with nice paint and detailing with some very nice components even if they don't match.

You should already have this in hand, especially with a DA crank.

I'll find out next week when I can make it up to KC and pick it up. I spoke to the seller on the phone and PayPal'd him the funds.

You'll see a CycleArt logo on the chain stay so this one's a repaint. IMO makes this bike easily worth $150.
