panasonic dx-1000 selling help

hello everyone, somebody i know has a panasonic dx-1000 road only 49cm bicycle she wants to get rid of. just wondering what would be a fair approximate asking price for it. the bicycle looks all original except for the bottle holder. it has been stored in a barn shed so it has the light surface corrosion on the aluminum. it was tuned up new tires and tubes about 3 years ago. i did read the stickeys let me know if im doing ok.

I see rust on the seat post, chain, seat post binder bolt, freewheel, and some rust staining on the chain ring. All of that will drop the value. So if you are planning to sell it as is, $100 to $125 or so. Tires look good, which is a plus. Panasonic built great bikes, and had a full line of models. The DX1000 is towards the basic end.

Tires were replaced at some point but there is enough rust on the bike to seriously drop the value. Rust on moving parts = tuneup/overhaul needed. I would also be thinking about $100 on this bike.

I think that you should be able to shine up the paint some: rubbing compound and car wax should do the trick.

I would agree $100 as is up to $200 with new tape, hoods, chain,cables etc. This will make a nice daily rider.
