1988 Schwinn Circuit Frameset

Hi,

So yesterday I picked up an '88 Circuit for $100. Unfortunately it's a bit large for me, but I couldn't pass up that kind of deal. Anyway, I was thinking of buying a new frame (Tempo is all i've been able to find) and use the Sante components from the circuit and sell just the frame. My question is, how much should I ask for the frame? It's in very good condition, no rust, only some paint dings here and there.

Thank You,
Joe

Post a couple of pictures, and list the size as well. A Circuit is a pretty desirable frame, as are the Sante bits..

If I were you, I would part it out and ebay both the frame and the bits. You'll get enough cash for another frame and 600 tricolor components (better than the Sante)

Looks like a 60cm
Looks rough in some areas
Looks like a $100-125 frameset

Thanks guys. So do you think I would be better off selling the whole bike?

Sante stuff has pretty good value, although your components look pretty scraped up. Tough call.
