    Help me figure out the value of this bike!

    Hey everyone, my grandmother has this Sun Key West Bicycle. My mother bought it for her some years ago, and it never got much use. Recently my grandmother decided she wanted to sell it.. she had a price of $10 during her garage sale. I quickly changed that and hung it back up until I could see what it is worth. I put it on craigslist under barter to see if we could get her anything cool for it instead of selling. Most people have wanted to purchase it. I have had offers of up to $100 (came in today, can still take it if you think I should). However, today I was also offered a very nice antique shotgun that I would like for myself. The guns value is at least $400. Am I missing something with this bike? Is it worth more than what I thought, or does this guy just really want this bike? Please let me know!

    It's your grandmother's bike. She can sell it for whatever she wants. $100 for a bike that cost $340 new now ain't a bad deal.

    $100 is more then reasonable.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Take the shotgun in trade. Give your grandmother $150 cash. Everyone wins. PG
