    ~$200 I would think.

    :edit: on second thought, You should be able to get over $200 for it, but I don't know what you paid for it new either. I would guess no more than $350 either, though.

    I would just hold on to it for that kind of money. I had no idea that bikes went down in value that fast.

    The bike was $500, brakes where $200 and the tires where $80 so I have $780 in the bike.

    oh well I like it I don't realy want to sell it anyway, it would kust make things easyer if I could get some decent cahs for it.
