The misrouted brake cables decrease the value by at least half.

I don't know about half, but that cable routing is painful, and very easy to fix. In addition, bike really needs to be complete: tires, tubes, lever hoods, bottle cages, pedals. With these deficiencies, total, may cut it in half. This is on a C/L sale. Ebay, you might just want to sell it as a frameset. It could do pretty well on ebay.

C/L buyers around here want complete bikes that are ready to ride. Incomplete bikes, even one as beautiful as your chrome bike, sell at a hefty discount.

I agree it should have ties for CL but on ebay... who knows maybe someone has an old pair Avocet tires in the closet just waiting for the day he finds a Norco to replace his stolen one.

it is a great looking and the ST is super relaxed.

One morning you wake up, the girl is gone, the bikes are gone, all that's left behind is a pair of old tires and a tube of tubular glue, all squeezed out"
