HIgh end of the market maybe, but not unreasonable. It appears to be a fairly clean, original & unmolested example. I'd probably pay that much for it if I was in the market for one.

Agree there. Wasn't entirely clear in my message - perhaps only a touch off the money is what I meant.

"freshely painted and everything" !!! yep, straight over the seat post, cables, bidon cage, etc. And yours for only $200!

The rear blinky light fixing is also a nice touch.

Rob,
Interesting bike..

I saw the EXACT same one 2 weeks ago, serial : SR9030168
I did some digging and the previous seller bought it for 270, sold it for 337.50... not to the guy selling it now so i am very confused... is there a bicycle double???!!!?!!

curious to know what this one will go at..

I won this last night. Do I have a reason to worry?

You have agreed to pay less than the last 2 times it may have been sold, so its all good isn't it :D

"Surface rust in places". Pics tell it better. The seller is a BNA forumite I think?

It's just a mind-set, I know, but I have a more critical attitude to nature-strip finds being on-sold, vs. "been in garage for 10 years, haven't ridden it in that time". But a quality bike and components.
