1984 Gitane TDF value

I picked this up on a trade, so I have no idea what a fair amount to sell for. I took it for a few rides and the frames a tad small for me. Thanks.

What size is it? I have no idea what its worth. If its my size and you're willing to ship it, I'd be interested in it.

Loving the uniqueness of that Ofmega shift package and I know those Mistral cranks bring a premium. Add the Super Vitus tubing and this is a really nice bike. But of course you already know this. I'm really not qualified to appraise this one, however my gut tells me $500?

That bike is remarkably clean. I hate to say it but this might be a part out candidate. I don't think the frame is as sought after as the older 531 TdFs and there is clearly a good market for the parts. This is a fine group of parts for someone building up an Italian bike. It would be a shame though to break this bike up.

I would say it's super clean and nice but from the time of Gitanes death spiral with a odd mix of nice original parts some black some polished and some mat silver. I would put the value at $400-450 plus shipping. At that price if your willing to ship you likely have couple of potential buyer her on the BF fourm.
