    Sounds reasonable to me. If I remember correctly, there isn't really any noticeable difference between a 2007 and 2009 820 in term of quality. You're just paying a discount because the bike is old, not because a newer version is any better. Maybe they could offer you some money in trade for your early 90s 820 and knock off another 20 bucks or so. After all, you probably won't need it anymore. You'd be better off selling it privately, though.

    One additional consideration, my LBS doesn't like to sell 820s in sizes above 18" because the larger person who needs those larger sizes is probably going come back frequently and need the wheels trued. Of course, in the end they'll sell the bike that the customer wants, just something else to consider.
