1991 Cinelli Argento Vivo mountain bike

I have this bike in my garage - It's all original in great shape. with the addition of a rack on the back and a bike computer.
I bought it new and have all the paperwork.
I'd like to sell it and was wondering what an asking price would be.
Since it was only made for one year it's impossible to find any out there for sale.

Do you have some pictures?

My vague recollection from one I saw in the early 90s was that it was black and silver and had bold Cinelli graphics and that the Italians should stick to road bikes. I remember that from a technical standpoint, the bike had some catching up to do, but it was cool from a novelty standpoint. I think it is possible it could fetch more than the merits of the bike deserve because of the Cinelli name and its short time in the marketplace

does it look like this? I might spend $200 for it just to have a Cinelli ATB

Almost exactly - same bike, but all orininal parts including the original Gary Fisher Fat Boy tires, a black rack on the back, 2 white bottle holders and does not have the add-on handle bar extensions.

Plus an Avocet cyclometer 30 computer already installed.

My camera is being repaired - hopefully in the next week it will be back and I could post a picture

Cool.
$200-$250, but I'd keep it.
