Ok, I took the criticism from the what's it worth thread to heart, went pro, and here's the ad. As previously discussed, this bike belongs to a friend, and it is now officially for sale. We have seen a lot of advice about where to sell it for the best payout and whether or not to keep it here so it goes in the hands of someone on the board, so this group gets right of first refusal.
There is quite a bit of info about the bike in the "Protocol for asking for bike value" thread under the "What Have I Missed" section. Here's the short version:
Frame: Nomura Chromoly
Forks: Bottema Chromoly
Bars: Unknown (in the picture of the crossbar, the stuff on the chrome is the glue from the sticker)
Other components: As seen in the photos
This bike was raced back in the eighties and is exactly how it was when the owner stopped racing at that time.
Yes, the asking price may be high, but is OBO. Feel free to make an offer or call me crazy. I can take it. If you think it's worth less and want to own it, feel free to make an offer. We look forward to the bike going to a good home.
Final price will be accepted offer PLUS actual boxing and shipping. The bike will be boxed correctly for shipping by a local bike shop.
