1987 Specialized StreetStomper

Picked this up the other day. I know it was a mid-to-low level bike, but I love the looks. The paint is9/10.

Has newer tires, but everything else appears to be 100% original. It's 3x6, not light (heavy wheels) but rides very well after some adjustment.

I think they only made these 87-89. Any collectible value?

Nice bike. Our family continues to use three mid 1980's Specialized that I purchased for them as children. The grand children are now enjoying. As to value, son said his FIL got one at a yard sale for $20.

Not collectible but a decent bike. There is one for sale locally that has been listed at $200 for a very long time. It's not going anywhere.

Thanks! Yah I figure $100-130 is the range for a local ad on CL.

It's not so much the value, I just get excited to find 30+ year old bikes that are in this kind of condition. I did remove a lil rust from chrome parts and gave it a wash, lube and adjustment.

It's in great shape. I have a hard time turning down top end vintage MTBs in great shape when they pop up locally. Of course I could just stop looking . . .

I don't see why the bike with some cleanup couldn't sell for $175.

Yah, that would help lol. Easier said than done... I couldn't bear to miss the bike/deal of the century haha. I'm sure many of us are the same in that regard.

That seems a bit optimistic, at least local on CL. I mean, a 35 year old bike in pristine condition is priceless in my eyes, but the market seems to disagree . Here in CA, the resale prices have really cooled down in the past year. I see bikes sitting for $100 that would have been snapped up in 2020-21. I assume it's the same elsewhere?

Vintage Trek Hybrid type bikes are selling for $250 - 300.

Local REI Mechanic was happy to find an early 90's Rockhopper for $250 clean. And he is in his 50's, not some kid.

The difference is the west versus the east. Urban environments are just not anywhere near as open in the east.

And then you have no cold weather (At least what most people would think is cold) so there are just a flood of bikes in that market vs the east.

I bought this for a flip but it road so nice, and I liked the way it looked I decided to keep it. (I was going to throw it on CL for $120 and keep top posting like I always do) I hadn't seen a quality hybrid in steel in forever on the fly.

Wow, that does sound like a different reality out there. People do list old steel here for 200+, but doesn't seem like they sell. A nice clean Trek 830 might sell for $100 and a 950 for 150.

Wow, nice score! Was it in that condition when you bought it? That would be a $150-180 bike in CA imo.

I am a few hours North of you and have sold Stumpjumpers for $400. A restored one (new cable, housing, grease, etc...) was before covid and a mid 80's one as a project was a few months ago, I sold the 80's one as a project as I figured buyers would want to do their own thing, I was right and had multiple interested parties. If one of these get listed between $150-180,, they tend to get snapped up very fast with sellers having multiple interested parties.

Your Streetjumper I'd say is a $100-$150 bike. The components are nothing special, but there is a bottom for a properly tuned, clean and ready to ride bike.

I have had horrible luck with offerup. The shock is hurting the 970 as well as no details in the ad. Things are taking longer to sell than they did in Covid days (less people looking). It takes more patience like it did before the bike boom.

That's because you are driving for them..... I am not driving more than a mile. I bike to the spots I find junk in. Like a 9 minute bike ride. And I am in the Balto DC metro. You are not paying $100 for that bike here.......$200-300. Maybe more. And I wouldn't pay more than $40 for that bike. I paid half that for that Innova.....did need tubes tires, and new pads.

I drove whopping two miles for the Stumpy. Yes, I think it is worth more, or I would not have bought it.

I would not expect it to be available for $100 in hot markets. It really depends on your location.

are those DX or Deore components? I wouldve paid twice that just for the parts for an old Bridgestone frame set I am trying to resurrect

Flipped this Street Stomper a couple of months ago. Sold for $325, even after I poached the Selle Italia Saddle.

The older specialized are starting to get a pretty good following. If it fits you I would hold on to it. How much you get it for?

I sold it in one day for the $150 asking price. Had a couple of people interested. It fit, but I had to thin the herd. 6-speed, a bit heavy and it's hilly where I live.

This nice 1990 Trek 950 on the other hand isn't getting much action. It's very nice except for the seat. All main components are original and in excellent shape.

As you illustrated, the Streetstomper is set up well to cruise for some tacos or visit the beach. An older flat bar mountain bike is less of a cruiser and may not have as big a market, unless a collectable model.
