    Selling Centurion Super Elite.

    Would I be more successful parting this bike out or selling it as a whole. I am looking to get about $250. Is that too much or could I sell it for more?

    Also what would be the value of a lotus Excelle Frame?

    Around here I could not get $250 for that Miyata? Is the fork original? Its a frankenbike mix. I'd probably swap out some brakes, remove the Superbe levers and calipers with something else. Bike would bring $150, maybe $175 here.

    Excelle frame would be around $50, unless it has really high end tubing. I would remove the seat post and stem, and replace them with something else, as they may be worth as much as that frame.

    Wow, if you can get $250 for that, more power to you. If that's a 700C bike, you might get as high as $200, if it's a 27 inch wheeled bike, $150 tops.

    Lowering my estimate to $150 max, given nothing matches (Suntour DT shifters), questionable front fork, wrong hoods on those Superbe levers.

    Don't part this out... Really a miss match of components. That said, you might want to take that Suntour Superbe brakeset off, add something else that works, and ebay it (the brake set). Might bring you about half of what the rest of the bike will... That way you will get your $250.

    The Lotus frame on that size is a hard sell. $75ish
