Sell my Columbus Bianchi fork for carbon

Im looking to upgrade my steel columbus bianchi celeste fork to a 1" threaded carbon one. I have to sell the steel fork to fund a carbon fork and id like to know what to expect to get for it. Its a celeste columbus cromor fork in good shape with very few small knicks.
Any help will be appreciated.

Depending on the steerer lenght maybe $50. I think your better off keeping it as a spare or to put back on the bike if you ever sell it.

Since you can get a carbon fork for what a decent steel fork used to cost I don't think there is a huge demand for used forks. However there is always the chance that there is Bianchi owner out in Outumwa Ia just waiting to find a replacement celeste fork, you never know.

also check ebay for an idea of price

+1 keep the old fork. Otherwise the value of the bike will be killed. Not sure what you're hoping for in a 1" threaded carbon fork, performance and weight are likely to be almost identical to what you have now. If you upgraded to 1" threadless you could stiffen up the front end nicely.

Bad idea to sell the original fork. You'll lose more in bike value that you'll get for the fork, I suspect.
