'89 Bianchi Grizzy?

What does the group say about a 1989 Bianchi Grizzy mountain bike?

It is almost original - only saddle, grips, and pedals have been changed. The frame is rock-solid, just with its fair share of patched paint chips (after all it is a MTB .) The mechanicals are very well-maintained and work flawlessly. Have a spare set of stock shifters & brake levers that I can include...

They're very nice riding bikes. Not worth much but nice regardless.

They are nice bikes but nothing too special however people do ask crazy money for them.

I would think $300 is doable, but then again I have one of these too.

Appreciate the replies - of course I was hoping for better results. Wasn't planning on selling until some guy approached me on a group social ride asking about buying it. I tossed out a price so high that I thought he would refuse, but he accepted. Guess what? Of course he punked out.

It does ride real nice - makes a great little neighborhood cruiser/grocery getter/barhopper, and I've had a blast riding it on easier trails at one of our local MTB parks a few times lately so guess I will be keeping it.

Thanx again...
