1987 Panasonic DX1000 in Refurbished Condition

Just wondering how much this Panasonic is worth overall. Normally I've seen that these are worth 100-150ish (COVID market has it towards the high end probably), but with the added work that's been done I'm not really sure how much it's worth. With just about everything already gone over, it's ready to ride without worry I figure. I'd probably just replace the seat.

In my area, and in that condition, I would offer that for sale at about $250.

That's a clean "like new" bike. All original bits and pieces right down to the reflectors. Something like that could go as high as $475 around here. I sold something similar here about a year ago for $455.

Hey guys I appreciate the replies. The price is 350 and it's a bit tempting. It'd be an entry to road cycling for me and it is somewhat valuable to me to not have to tinker with repairs and maintenance for multiple items right off the bat. Simultaneously it is just a mid level Panasonic.

I'll have to think on it a bit.

I'd call that Panasonic lower mid-level. (The Centurion is a much nicer frame.) If you need a bike, $350 is not unreasonable. But, in the least, I would replace the el cheapo tires with Paselas. Then you'd have something to ride while you look for a nicer frame. You can always sell the Panasonic later, probably for about what you paid. Just don't crash head-on.

I appreciate it man, do you recognize what tires they are specifically or just that they're low end? It doesn't have the brand listed and I don't think it showed what they were. Better tires are in budget for me, i'll look into the paselas. (If they come in 27")

If I go with it, I'd probably ride it for a summer before moving on from it. I'm not sure if I could bring myself to sell it afterward though, the vintage bikes have a strange appeal.

They look like Kendas.

They're the best value out there, especially for 27".

Better frames, like a Panasonic dx-4000, offer more appeal. But we all have to start somewhere.
