1987 Nishiki Olympic

I am new to the forum. I have a 1987 Nishiki Olympic. I bought it new but haven't ridden it in 23 years. It's been storage. It's all original. The color is a red and white fade. Under 500 miles.
I'm going to put it up for sale on CL. If someone could give me an idea of what I should ask for it, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Need pictures, also your local market dictates price - where are you located. The bike needs a complete overhaul if its been in storage, plus new tires, so as it sits its a probably a $100 bike at best.

I'm in San Diego. Thanks a lot for the response! I will probably sell as is...but I'm curious to know what 2 new tires & a complete overhaul would cost?

REI has 50% off thru mid month on bike service. Their prices are in line with LBS and the staff is always very nice at the 3-4 stores I frequent.

I bought my nishiki olympic 12 (rebranded in Australia as Repco) for $30. I got an exceptional deal though. It is a great bike, I use it as my commuter. Are you sure you don't want to ride it yourself?

It is a great bike! I won't part with it for less than $200.
I may just keep it! Thanks!
