Mavic 517 on XTR hubs

I found a set of these in good condition, includes skewers, needs no truing and hubs spin nicely. What is a fair price?

Thanks

Used wheels are sketchy...but those are a relly nice XC setup. I'd say back when they were built...(shop price)...maybe in the $300-$400 range. Cheaper online. I'd say they're worth $150 in good shape given the depreciation.

Depending on how old the hubs are and what condition the bearing races are in, $150 sounds fair.
