On Craigslist, Windsor International 10 Speed Road Bike - Excellent Condition

Know a little about Windsors, but not enough to say this is a fair or crappy deal.

Feedback welcome.

Thanks,

Mike

Not a bad deal. Looks to be in nice condition.

Steel rimmed wheels which aren't the best, but perfectly rideable.

looks late 70's to me too. the international was a lower model, with hi-ten tubing but descent suntour components. by that time, it should have alloy wheels but i could be wrong.

i would try to pay $100 or less if i were you.

This bike is clean and has very decent parts. If the bike fits, I'd be prepared to pay the asking price. This is a reasonable price for a very serviceable bike.

The price seems reasonable for a nicely functioning basic small road bike. Based on parts the bike does appear to be late 70's .

I think 100 is about it, mismatched tire likely replacement wheels, and the lack of cable clamps on the shifter cables lowers the value to me.
