Cool bike. The thing to keep in mind is that if you are just looking for a vintage or older MTB to fix up and ride, the prices are very reasonable. You can get a top end MTB with deore components for a $100-$150 fairly easily.

This bike should be worth something because it has a rarity value but you need to find the right buyer. A lot of buyers will not be willing to pay a premium for this bike as they can get a little newer top end vintage MTB for less.

I'm not sure where you are but here in Bloomington, IN., you have one of the first generations of true mountain bikes. It appears to be all original down to the gum-wall tires, and the 175 cranks. The braking system is the same as we used on the Paramount Tandem for the Beeson team in 1984. It is great find for you and I hope you enjoy it for many riding seasons. It is a treasure to find! Smiles, MH
