Bike is pretty much mint. Pictures will show details.

Hoods donít fit and no bar tape. Bar tape from eBay is less than $2.

market on vintage touring bikes has really softened up. I have a couple left that I will lose money on because I held on to them.

Nice bike for sure. Local sale depends on where you live. Selling on eBay is no picnic. Recent eBay sales have been $450 to $550. Subtract 15% in fees and seller netted more like $375 to $475. Glad I sold my two 1000s when the market was better.

It's cosmetically challenged with deep ruts in the wheels, duct tape on the headbadge, weird handlebars, disconnected front fender and, small frame. But, it's got great bones. I really like the cantilever brakes. Decent tires. Maybe $275 as is.

I'd like to know what's hiding behind that duck tape on the head and down tubes.

Nothing is hiding.
The tape was apparently placed to hold the cateye wires. When I checked it out, everything was in good working order. The only thing that needed replacement were the rims. aside from that, the frame and everything else is mint.

Also, it looks like it's been for sale for some time here in Alberta. Before the market was hot for these bikes, but not so much now.
