well, I would not call them so so. I find that they stop really well and perform as good as most other top notch single pivot side pulls out there. This was 1978 after all.

That one is in very nice condition overall. For that reason, I'd say the 400-500 range seems possible.

It's too bad it didn't fit you. It is a beautiful bike.
