great looking bike. I ma not sure what the value is but under $400 I might be seriously interested if it was nextdoor.

the only downside is your stuck with those shifters, I beleive they have that funky shimano style boss. you can modify some bolt on housing stops if you wanted barends though

To get top dollar, it just needs a couple of changes: new bar tape, matching tires, and a general cleanup.
