Selling my beloved Cruiser. What's it worth?

Well, this is it. I am considering selling my Electra Super Deluxe Candy apple red Cruiser to fund a new commuter bike. I have had it for almost a year and it is like new since I barely ride it. The question is, what is it worth? It retailed at 750, which is about what I paid for it. The red color has been discontinued for a while. Anyway, it looks like the bike in the pic but has a chrome luggage rack on the back fender. Any clue what I should be looking to get for it? I'm not used to selling bikes

Depends on where you are and the market demand. Around here (central NC) ~$350 would be max in my opinion, might be more or less depending on where you are located.

Is your red Cruiser still for sale?
