Don't think I'd really ever pay more than $20 or so(in Really great condition) from a garage sale or something, If it had fenders and I needed a rainy day commuter. They're nice heavy beater bikes that are kinda fun to ride that you don't have to worry about ruining.

I picked up a 3 speed that looked practically new a couple years ago for $15. It's served well and problem free despite my girlfriend leaving it outside for two winters in WI while she used it in college. I'm giving it a tune-up this week to go back into duty as a winter commuter for myself to work and back. I am actually kind of disappointed that mine sat out to rust for two winters just due to the condition it was in before, but I think I'm going to get it a cheap powder coat, and there's no shortage of these things, so I'm not too upset.
