Nishiki Riviera

Hi, I have a 12 speed Nishiki Riviera with Sun Tour shifters and Dia Compe brakes. I'm planning on selling it on Craigslist and I'm not sure what a reasonable price would be. Let me know if you need better pictures, I'd be happy to take some more. Any help on this would be great, thanks!

If you ride C&V bikes, that mirror mounted on the left brake lever is nice to have. That bike does need to be cleaned up, though.

I would clean it up some before selling. I'm not sure about Calafornia but that bike would likely sell for about $100 where I live.

+1 In that condition, $50 tops around here. All tuned up and in nice condition, it could go for $125-150.

I bet that with a complete re-build, polish of all components, new rubber/cables all around, removal of safety levers, replacement downtube shifters from parts bin, touch up of all paint scratches, that bike would fetch $260 in the Wash DC suburbs. It'd have to be very, very clean, though. Chain might be able to be salvaged, if it's not worn.

As it stands, if I were the buyer ~$50 maybe.

To clarify a little the reason I said closer to a $100 rather than $50 is the bike has slightly nicer components than most Nishiki's. It has a nice crankset with what appear to be nicer MKS sylvan pedals, Suntour AR shift group and what looks like 500 series brake set. Which should add $50 or so in value over the way most used Niski's are equipped.
