Whats it worth? Rans VREX

I'm selling a Rans VREX in XL size for a friend, it is literally brand new, he bought it, rode it 30 miles, and its been in the garage ever since. I believe its a 2 year old model, a cool forest green color, and he paid something like $1500 for it. Hes also including the seat bag, trek bike computer, and a large Bell Helmet. I'm putting it up on ebay for him, any idea what I should put as the reserve? Mind you he is looking to move the bike soon.... I know regular bikes but I really don't know recumbents at all. Thanks!!!

Current MSRP is $1485. Plus shipping, if you buy from RANS.

Right but its technically "used" so what would be a fair price to sell for?

Yes, technically it's used. And the second owner gives up the lifetime frame warranty. I think I'd ask $1200, take $1000, for bike and computer. The bag can be sold separately because it probably won't affect the price the bike will bring. I wouldn't sell a used helmet regardless of condition, but that's just me.
