how much is this schwinn mixte worth?

From what ive gathered i believe they call these mixtes, anyone have any idea what its worth assuming i polished the bars. Its in great shape otherwise. this bike is an 80's era bike.

+1 $25 to $50 max as sits. Handlebars will take more than polishing, you may just want to replace them. Lack of decals is a negative, looks like it needs a new headset as well.

1984 LeTour?? Check the date code on the headbadge.

Totally refurbished, the bike could be worth around $150, maybe a tad more, depending how nice it turns out.

I agree with Bill. Alloy wheels count for something-and cheap tires are $30 a pair..................also notice the center pull calipers-not all mixte frames can accommodate these. Nice looking bike/forged crank-very nice!
