Amanda,

Late 80's, or early 90's time trial-er, funny bike style. Off topic, I know, but just for clarification. Value would likely be $200 plus or minus $50. An interesting bike...probably not a lot of collector value. Ride it!

I just now looked at your photos, after sending my previous reply. Your bike is clearly NOT a track bike, what with all those extras like brakes, derailleurs, etc. In fact the frame is identical to mine right down to the paint job. As before, I'd be surprised if you could get $300 for it, but you never know what some Japanese collector might do. :-)
