~1980 Cycles Gitane Mixte

Well, my wife wants to sell her gitane mixte. Pretty sure it is an altus derailer, mighty cranks, stem shifters...oh, and the BB is japanese, not french. In good working order, doesn't need any work except one issue.

The issue is that it has a stuck seatpost

Assuming we get the seatpost unstuck, what's it worth?

I can get more detailed info if needed.

that is beautiful. check over in the C&V threads for info on getting the seatpost unstuck. I would imagine in the Seattle area you can get a bit more than $150, Mixte bikes are popular right now
