80's Bob Jackson

I recently picked up a lime green Bob Jackson from the early 80s that seems to be in beautiful shape, aside from broken Brooks saddle and gross handlebar foam. Downtube shifters, Shimano 600 rear derailleur, Weinmann brakes, ESGE fenders that say "Made in W Germany" (I believe this company is predecessor to SKS?)... and odometer on front wheel that shows under 1k miles! If I clean it up, replace saddle and handlebar tape, as well as cables and housing, what would be a reasonable price to sell for? I do not have enough posts to include photos but happy to message/email anyone who wants to photo assist me. Thanks in advance for any guidance.

This was the only full-bike photo shown in the album thus far. A right-side view is generally preferred, along with the center-to-center lengths of the toptube and seattube.
In the California Bay Area market, I would ask for $600.

Ah thanks, lots to learn! I've added a drive side pic as well.

Top tube center to center looks to me like 22in
Seat tube center to center: 22.5in

That number sounds reasonable to me, thanks again.

The post doesn't say where you are located.

If this was my size I would drive overnight with $600 in my pocket.

$400 to optimistically $450 as is.

The front of the saddle appears to be damaged.

IMO almost all the value here is in the frame. The parts are a mish mash with nothing really special, and the saddle is a goner.

I'd be willing to spend something like $400 on it as is.

With new saddle, bar tape, tires, pads, cables, etc. Maybe $550 or $600.

It's a great frame right? Will be hard to let it go. I am in Seattle so a long drive from Phoenix!

Yeah, agreed on parts and saddle is toast. On the one hand, hard to justify all the time and effort for marginal value increase- a new Brooks alone is 150ish or 75-80 for gently used- but on the other hand it would look fantastic all fixed up so we shall see. Thanks for the input.

Agree.

But you can't make any money on these components unless you build them up into something. Might as well polish everything and leave them here, hoping they don't detract from the value of the frameset.
