I thought the Superbe Tech was the only Superbe long cage version, that is unusual. I think it would go for $80 to $100 range on Ebay. Maybe $60 here on the forum. $40 to $50 for the shifters.

The crank is swaged. Instead of being made as one piece, the spider and crank arm is made in two separate pieces than mated together. That's typically seen on entry level bikes.

Think I would respace the 120mm hub to 126mm instead of cold setting the stays again. There also a good chance that someone shoved a 126mm hub into the 120mm drops and you won't need do anything.
