A lot depends on how you're selling it. Generally speaking, dura ace EX is not an especially valuable group and univega doesn't get a name premium. On Craigslist in a decent market, I would think maybe 350-400 tops. On eBay, sold whole, maybe add $75, but you might clear less after fees.

In order to achieve a mid $300's value, the bike needs to be detailed, and any rusty cables replaced. For example the chain rings are dirty and the fd cable looks rusted. I would remove the computer and reshoot the photos wihout it too.

It could be a nice find , depending on the tubing spec, as Univega sourced a lot of Miyata frames, so depending on which one. Does it have a legible tubing sticker? How you clean it up and where you market it changes final resale value as well as patience. Does it fit you?

It's perfect for me size wise. I really like it. Im probably going to keep this and alternate between my lemond. Bought from og owner who raced it in the 80s. It's a miyata made I believe, with champion tubing.has been stored for years hence the old cables and grimy rings. I was just curious. I think that the univegas are understated bikes. At least the ones from this era. The simplicity of it is attractive to me.
