Who knows, now that everyone wants a bike, you might be able to fetch a higher price (though most people are looking for commuter/recreation bikes, not collectibles).

You'd probably get the best price on eBay, but you have to deal with lots of hassle. My random guess, not knowing the Cowtown market: $750USD?
USD -> CAD would fall around $900, which some might find too ambitious. I could possibly aim for $750 CAD as touring is becoming a hot sport here Alberta again with the current pandemic.

Bar end shifters became standard after 1990 I believe.
