( MSRP / 2 ) + Hipster tax

Hipster tax is typically a function of your local market fluctuations.

How much is it worth to you? Truly serious answers come from within. There is no heaven above, nor hell below.

Part it out and put it up on eBay. Boston craigslist sucks and you'll have much better luck.

People were getting that frame for $150 shipped at some point, and the seat mast seems cut really short. The bike has a usually undeserved reputation for not fitting cranks so I would count myself very lucky at $500. I'd just keep it and ride it.

People buying them for 150 got the messed up version that can't do more then a 44t crank. I don't have that version.

And to Nagrom, I got really nice deals on everything.

You could sell that frame/fork here in LA for $500. And I sold my Omniums for $160, but I've seen them go for $170 on Craigslist (LA/OC)

And how the hell did you spend $130 on those bullhorns?? o.O

Ask for 650 and prepare for a possible long wait. That seatpost cut so low is going to turn off a lot of track enthusiasts, though.

Not true. They were giving away the corrected version for a while too. And there never was a version which had the 44t limit, just some that couldn't run cranks with thick spiders. Again, I think the bike is worth more than you can get for it.
