Are selling or buying?
If you're selling, I would think it is a tiny market for tall Cambodian bike riders at least 6' tall.
If you're buying, and the bike fits, you may be part of that tiny market.

Here in the good old usa, $175 +/- $25, in ready to ride condition. I've paid far less for neglected but pristine paint GPs.

Oddjobs pricing seems about right. The bike does have some pluses nice original condition and paint color. It also has some draw backs large frame size, cottered steel crank and steel wheels so its a fairly heavy bike.

I am an American living in Cambodia and am 5'9" with a 33" standover and long arms and I like a tall bike. It will be used in the US for a few months and then brought here to Phnom Penh.

Make sure to ride before you buy. I am 5'9" and know that frame is too tall for me, but everyone has a personal preference.

I'm 5'9" and have ridden taller bikes in the past, up to about 63cm, but that one looks even larger. 65cm maybe? It is really huge. If you are that tall and can pedal the thing normally I would be surprised. Either way, it would be a really poor fit.

If I were buying it for myself, assuming it fit, I would only want to spend maybe $75. Cottered crank, steel rims, no thanks.

I'm 6 foot long arms and ride a similar bike as a tall old school and this one is just too big for you.
