Panasonic DX6000

Panasonic DX6000.

The pictures show a bike in very good condition. Clean, well maintained and ready to ride.

I'll probably change out the drivetrain for a modern 2x10 Shimano Ultegra anyway. I own almost everything I need to make the upgrade.

Whats it worth?

No pics, but I understand not wanting to advertise a bike you may be after.
3.50 without pics, in most cases.

Intact bike? tires? color? group? saddle? size?
Could go from $150 to $300 or more. Should be Tange Prestige frame.

Not sure the OEM group, I've heard Suntour and I've heard Shimano.
Either way, if the group's intact, you could sell it and offset the 2x10 cost.

The frame's the key, 1st.
If it's Suntour Superbe or Superbe Pro, you're looking at a nice chunk of group to sell.
If it's Shimano 600 tricolor, same.

Good luck.

Thanks Robbie,

It should be 7 speed Suntour Sprint. I could sell the entire drivetrain at once, including the wheels and levers.

What could that bring?

The one in Chicago looks to have a bent fork....and it definitely has a dent in the top tube.

I think that he has had it listed for awhile so he will probably go down in price. However, I really don't think it is a good idea to buy anything from a guy who has the cajones to say this:

Bike is in very good condition with a SMALL DING along with a little rust on the cable guides on the top tube. This is something that happens to Columbus Tubing/Tange Prestige Tubing. Very many Italian bikes have this happen. It can be removed and touched up easily.

Thanks, yes it has been listed for a while.

I'd say the group without wheels, $125-$150 but you'll have to be patient. I'm not exactly sure, though.
The key is the entire group, matched up, so it can go right on a frame.
The wheels are a big bonus, probably $75-$100 more, but should include skewers and tires.

If I had a DX6000, yeah, I'd upgrade it and ride the tar out of it.
I'm getting a bike with the same Sprint group, but until I get a good look at it, I haven't a clue.
I'm thinking of setting it up as a tri-bike, so the group would be able to go, including wheels.

I thought that Panasonic was down to $350 at one point. I've been lusting after it from afar. I'd probably pay $150 (shipped) for that frame, even with the dent. But then, I really want a high end Japanese mass produced frame in that size. I'd say the dent and eclectic build hurts the value a bit. $200-$250 is more realistic, in my opinion. $300 would be a lucky day for the seller.

Actually, unless the tires are a. brand new and b. to the buyer's preference they only difference they would make is to add to shipping cost. Older tires already on the wheel, which have life left, should be seen as a free throw-in.

I wanna upgrade mine. Depending on the year (if 87 like mine) it's a nice bike. Buy it if it fits.

Am I the only one that thinks the fork is bent? And that a bent fork and a dented frame are indicative of a front-end collision? There could be a bunch of underlying problems if that is the case.

In a weird coincidence, there were a bunch of really nice Panasonics on eBay in the last few weeks, 3 complete Team Panasonics and one almost NOS DX6000. The prices that these bikes ended at were really low, some people got some amazing deals:

Could be. I'd definitely want more photos before purchasing it sight-unseen. However, I wouldn't say, based on the photos provided, that it's obviously bent. Also, in the photos provided, I don't see any buckling on the top or down tubes.
