1984 Motobecane Mirage Sport - What could I get for it?

Hi guys,

Realizing that I haven't ridden it much since I overhauled it last summer (EG it's collecting dust while hanging in my room), I'm debating putting my Motobecane up for sale.

Frame Size is 59cm.

Last summer I:

Replaced all the bearings and repacked with new grease.
Wrapped the handlebars with new s-wrap tape.
Installed new brake lever hoods.
Replaced the tires with 27x1 Pasela TG's
Ran new cables & housings.
Replaced brake pads with Kool Stop Continentals.
Full wash/scratch-x/wax of the frame, and polishing of the shiny bits.

I'm trying to cull my herd down, as I only really ride the T700 and the new trike. I'm a bit loathe to sell, as it's my first road bike ever, but wanted to get a rough value before I commit to selling.

I'm not sure what your bike market is like but in a good bike market like mine... I would sell your bike for $200 to $250... not including the bag. Looks nice and clean
