Pretty bike! I just paid $275 for a 1982 614. It is in excellent condition and all original except for the wheels, which are Belgian Weinmann rims laced onto Specialized hubs.

Petermaz, welcome. The answer is: it depends. If you are going to sell it and go with a local Craig's list ad then your location is all important. Read the sticky at the top of this sub forum. It will provide useful info so I won't repeat it. Larger photos and photos of the components will be helpful here to see the condition of the frame and parts.

I have a 1981 716 24" which I bought on ebay 2 years ago. It was exactly what I was looking for in my size so I paid what it was worth to me. Check ebay sold listings for this model. There are some pretty high numbers for a few listings and I am not surprised since like me, some folks don't need or want the sought after 720 but the 710 frame works great for a sports touring frame that fits large tires.

I sold all the 600 Arabesque parts, wheels, etc that came with the bike so ended up paying around $200 for a pristine frame.

Glad you are liking it. The FD is also not original - I believe it is Sora.
