    If you wish to get maximum value out of it, put it on ebay. Otherwise I'd say you could probably get 100-200 for it. Depends on the frameset and what people are looking for. Old 70's Masi road bikes fetch a mint, but an old touring bike, well... Although I watched a Trek 720 touring bike go for $400 last year. (I was trying to score it). Clean bike too, guy who bought it was local to me, and I got to saw what I lost. If you don't go ebay, and craigslist.org services your area, you could sell it there too.
