I sold one last spring to Brooklynites for $399 last year, so I think you're at FMV.

sweet, yeah that's what I was thinking too, I sold a Brava few weeks back for $380 with full 105, I figured this one is a bit more desirable with the frame tubing/modolo brakes etc, I will keep it at 400 as I have an interested party at that price! Thanks

That is an '86 Brava, I forgot they were set up like that, sort of a Campione de Italia style kit. I think you might get more action with more road looking tire. Also are the brake pads the original Synthered pads? I would ditch them but I have found it can be tricky to get other pad/holder combos to fit Modolos. Kool Stop Continental pads may be the best bet.
