I sold this one for $285 last spring. It was completely refurbished with new seat, handlebars, pedals, chain, grips, levers, suntour thumbshifters, tubes, tires, cables and cable covers. Basically restored to "like new" condition. Equivalent to about a $1000 new bike. Buyer was extremely happy. I probably lost a few hundred on the deal. But, that's not the point. Be good. Have fun.
