Anything old, run of the mill, and in rideable shape as-is around me seemingly goes for mid $100s, from 70's Raleighs to 00s hybrids. Anything newer is priced more off component cost than model. The few times I've bothered looking at BBB, it didn't have much correlation to my reality.

Or, to point out some issues more directly, look at something like this. Supposedly the only difference between a pristine, like-new mid-90s Rockhopper and one needing a complete overhaul is $19: https://www.bicyclebluebook.com/Sear...41&model=43230

FWIW, I'm not getting either a pristine, nor a complete overhaul needed, for $48 on CL. Thrift shop maybe, but bikes are pretty generically priced there.
