    What's my cruiser worth?

    10629_1256671738516_7646975_n.jpg

    I've got 6 bikes and need to thin the herd a bit. When I lived near the beach, I got a lot of use out of this one but now that I'm back in Memphis it just sits in the garage. I bought it new in 08 or 09 from the Trek store and is still in good shape. No scrapes or dents at all. I can't remember what I paid for it but was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what I should sell it for.

    ought to sell quick at $100* , slower if you ask more.

    * LBS Sells off their rental cruisers, in the season end, for about that .

    Thanks. I was hoping it was worth a bit more but it is what it is.

    It's a Trek classic beach cruiser. Not sure if it that's the model name. Here is a page that describes my exact model.

    $100 is probably a fair price, assuming it's in good condition. You might squeeze $150 out of it, if you're willing to wait for someone who cares about he Trek name. But, be prepared to deal with crazy lowballers. Crazy lowballers outnumber even the Nigerian princes in most CL territories.

    Update: It was an easy sell really. Put it on Craigslist on a Saturday and asked $150. Sunday morning I had a guy message me that he wanted to come look at it. He and a buddy came by that day and he loved it. He asked what I'd take for it and I said lowest is $130. Sold. I didn't have any crazy lowballers or any scammers contact me. Just one other interested party after the sale. Good experience over all. He said he was going to customize it with some ape-hangers, new wheels, seat etc. To each their own I guess.

    That's awesome. I guess Memphis is better'n NJ. Here, fifty guys would've offered you ten for it sight-unseen, and some other guy would've offered you $100000000 in Nigerian money for it, provided you put $2k USD into his checking account. Congrats
