So I'm dampening down the jealousy meter. I own 2 stumpjumpers--a 1991 team and a 1987 comp--and I would have bought this bike in a heartbeat. I agree with Andy_K, normally I could give a damn less...

This bike is a little too hot to be a clunker 100! I picked up an old bike-a mid 70s Sekine SHS 271--that will be perfect for this thread next year.

Dang, I have the perfect bike, a mid 70s Sekine SHS 271--but it will end up costing me right around $100. That bike is a prima bad weather bike, it has room for 38c tires and fenders.

Sorry to hear that guy. I have no doubt you'll bounce back. I'll take a look at what you have since I know we ride the same size bike.

Heck go with an english threaded fork and never have to screw around with a french headset or a 22 zip stem and a 25 zip bar. It's not as if this bike is all original or anything . . . .

Yep $300 is a fair price for this bike. It looks very good once you fixed it up. It's surprising how much the little things can make a difference. I was surprised as well by how low the valuations...

You don't need to be snarky. I just disagree with your valuation given what I know/see on my local CL and that touring bikes tend to command a premium. Most people who are not on Bike forums don't...
