|1989 Cannondale-what's it worth?||Leroy|

|I have cleaned up my brother's 1989 Cannondale. He inherited it from a partner and used it in triathlons. It is going into a church garage sale. I have to put a price on it so it will sell. It is 7 speed, with downtube shifters, light blue with lots of assorted touch-up paint, plenty of dings and small dents - this bike was thrown out of a suburban window in a fatality car wreck - mavic open pro/shimano 600 wheels - all Shimano 600 (old integra), tricor foam saddle, salsa stem, toe clips. It's perfectly functional. Rides fine (for a 1989 Cannondale). What do you think a good garage sale price is for this bike?|

|Consider not only the bike, but the venue. A 14 year old dinged up Canny at a church garage sale? $25-40.
Your description of the frame's history makes me a little concerned. "Small dents" from being thrown out a car window in a major auto accident don't go well with 14 year old oversized aluminum tubing, in my book.
But if the integrity is there, sell away.

|If you you sell on line $250 to $300.It is hard to sell friction shifter bikes that are old esp. aluminum.|

|That confirms my first impression - I was thinking about $40-$50. I just don't want to have to take it home after the sale! I think its structurally sound, for having been through the wreck and all - I have ridden it some and it's ok - if you like riding saw horses. Just a shade too stiff for my tastes. But it'll sell for $40 I bet.|| |
