Kabuki DFD

Picked it up many moons ago, never used. Anyone know what it's worth?

Dude, really? Step back with the camera & get a shot of the whole bike. It's a pretty color blue. Nice rear reflector. That's maybe $50 worth of bike showing. Where's the rest of it hiding?

Welcome to the forums. The subject bicycle is one of Kabuki's high end Diamond series, likely one of the Diamond Formula variants. It would appear to be very late 1970s to very early 1980s based on the presence of the world championship stripes. This is also consistent with the first generation SunTour Superbe derailleur. However, I also see a large spoke protector plate and what appears to be 27" wired-on rims both of which would be atypical for a Diamond model and devalue the bicycle. Consequently, we require additional photos to determine how much the bicycle has be altered. The serial number will tell me the exact frame date.
