Lotus Legend Compe

Hi,

Just picked up this bike and don't know much about it other than its a Lotus Legend from around '84... was wondering if anyone could give a rough estimate of worth? (Can post more detail pics soon).

thanks!

The conversion does hurt value as a bike to sell and it's going to take an educated buyer and/or a well written ad to sell it. The frame is lovely, but lotus typically doesn't get the recognition (or prices) their bikes warrant. I need to see a parts breakdown and photos before suggesting a value.

As far as its value as a bike to ride, use and enjoy - it has significant value. It's versatile, well made, beautiful, at least to me, and should be fun. This bike screams keeper more than sell.
