Heh Lincoln, I will be bold and say start with a grand and take it from there, but on the other hand dont rush in with a bid I am sure he has a figure in mind and patience may see him come out with it first. Been down that road many times, best of luck. regards Alan

Lincoln, to give you a basis to work from the TS models have been increasing in sale price lately. You would not get a good restored one for less than $7-8K at the moment. That would give you an idea of what to pay based on how complete it is and what sort of condition. Without seeing it I would agree with Alan - unless it is totally complete with all the right bits (levers, etc) and only needs cosmetic resto ! (wouldn't I like to find bikes like that  :) )
