Dahon Speed 7 (2006)

Considering you can get a 2009 speed 7 from performance bike at $385 shipped, how much is this dahon realistically worth?

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/bik/1289234320.html

It's a 2006 model with the following specs. http://www.dahon.com/archive/2006/us/speedd7.htm Are there any differences between the 06 and 09 models?

If it's in as good a condition as promised, what's its worth? $200?

I can't imagine anyone paying $325 for it. I have the 2007 model and I paid new about $350.

If the thing doesn't sell in a few weeks. Go for the $200 offer!!

I think the one that sold on Ebay is a 2009 model, so $335 seems reasonable.

2006 uses a freewheel (unsure)
2009 uses a freehub + cassette (quite sure)
