Vicious Monolith build - how much is this worth?

An ex-girlfriend of mine left a Vicious Monolith complete bike at my place for a couple years. I did a couple tiny things to it and started using it as a cruiser. Today she said that for $500 I can have it, otherwise she'll be by to pick it up next week. Not sure what it's worth, so I figured I'd ask here

Info:

Vicious Monolith frame, with steel fork, single speed
26'er with disk brakes (not hydraulic)
Chris King components (but not everything is CK)

Here's the only decent pic I have. I can get more pics or info if that's needed to make an accurate judgement:



Please forgive the outfit - it was Tour De Fat


How much do you realistically think the bike is worth?

Looking over this forum, I can see other appraisal threads that are pretty much going unanswered. I'm guessing there is a different place on this forum I should be posing that question to? Where would that be?

Tell her that the fee for years of storage is $500 and you'll just keep the bike.

First impression is that $500 seems a little steep...

- Slim

PS.

Tell 'er you'll take it off 'er hands for $200...If she heistates, make it $250!

And that's your final offer!

Long story short, she owes me money that she's continuing to pay back (a lot more than $500) and pissing her off/ultimatums are out of the question. The actual offer from her was to "knock $500 off the debt" and I'm trying to decide 1) how much this bike is worth and 2) if it's then worth it to me.
