Paramout MOS Series 30 PDG

I bought this bike today and have a few questions. What is it worth the way it sits, everything works good. From the research I have done it seems to be a mountian bike converted for road use. Am i right to assume the wheels are not original? Will the tires hold up riding on gravel ? Is there anything else that has been changed?

Your bike doesn't have the original stem or tires. The wheels appear original, but I can't see the hubs to be sure. The hubs should say Deore LX, and probably M560, if they are original.

A tire with 1.4" width is about 35mm. You can ride easier gravel with those tires, but wider tires may be better. Try it and see.

I paid $20 for this one and sold it for around $130. The wheels and saddle weren't original and I doubt the seatpost was either.
