What is my bike worth??



Hey guys, The attachment pics are of my Dave Mirra Signature 540 Air Bike from 2004? My parents got this bike for me when I was young keeping in mind that it would last me a long time and I'd eventually grow into it. Well time has come that I am now 5'11" 150lbs. and ready to use it. I've been trying to do flatland tricks, but I struggle because of the weight. I do not have a scale to tell you... but I estimate it at around 40lbs. It hinders my ability to do any stunts. I am hoping that I could sell it to put money towards a new lighter one. How much do you think it can sell for?

I will replace the handle grips and get a new front brake for it.
It Has:
metal footpedals
a large sprocket
gyro brake system
cushioned seat
4 pegs
metal rings at the end of the handles to protect the actual handle
Basically all stock parts.
other issues are the tires are about bald and there are a lot of cosmetic flaws (scratches)

Other wise the bike rides really nice. I am assuming it is supposed to be for dirt bmx considering the heavy duty build.

So... Price? I'd appreciate the feedback

Its not worth a whole lot man, sorry. 7 years old? and the weight shouldn't have any effect on tricks at all, you just have to put more effort into them.

You won't get much out of it. $50? Throw it in a yard sale or something and put $75 or $100 on it.

Wrong bike man. How much better is a fixie than a BMX for commute? It can't be that much better, plus it's not as fun. BMX > SS > fixie.

My commute varies. Depends on what I'm doing/where I'm going. And you just have to ride fixed for a while to understand it I guess. Theres just something like a deep connection to it that feels really good

It works fine for me now too. My plug-ins were acting really dumb for a few days. Couldn't get youtube, vimeo, netflix, anything like that to work on this browser. And the bike looks pretty nice man.

Just picked this up for $100 off pinkbike:








Specs:
Frame: Fit Van Homan
Headset: Cane Creek S-3, basically new
Handlebars: MacNeil
Front Wheel: Ditch Witch rim, black, true and straight with no name sealed bearing front hub
Rear Wheel: chrome rim, true and straight, no scratches with 9t driver on no name sealed bearing hub
Tires: Maxxis Prototype semi-slick tires
Chain: KMC
Cranks: FSA Nasty Boy cranks, FSA BB
Seat and seatpost: MacNeil integrated seat and post

Still brakeless at the moment, which I guess just makes it all the trendier But I'm going to be getting brakes before I commit to anything too serious. On the ad, it still had some CB 50-50's that he was going to include in the $100 price!! But naturally, someone saw & offered him a pretty penny for the pedals alone All the same, I'm about to take her out to the local BMX track before work!
