Welcome. It's impossible to give a valuation without more information and preferably photos. You'll need 10 posts total before you can post pix.

Going from memory, the 434 is one of the frames Klein built in conjunction with Schwinn. These frames don't have a typical seatpost binder bolt, but instead, a quill seatpost.

These seatposts are very prone to cracking. If the seller allows, best to remove and carefully examine the seatpost for cracks.

If the seatpost is cracked, you'll want to pass on the bike unless you have an extra quill seatpost handy. Riding the frame with a cracked seatpost is not recommended.

I think these say Paramount or Paramount design group on them. Don't be fooled they are not really considered Paramounts. The 434 is an aluminum frame.

Nice shape, no dents with newer tires and fresh grease it's worth $175. Any dents walk away, if it needs anything, start deducting.
