Exactly what I was looking for!

The right person might be willing to pay a lot for it, but especially with the brand being not very well known, most people are going to avoid it. I can't tell what the components on it are, but assume they are fairly high end? My ballpark (and fairly uneducated) guess would be that something around $2000-2500 is a good price, but you may have to be very patient waiting for the right person to come along. You might consider stripping the parts off and selling them separately from the frame, then leave the frame up on eBay and other sale sites with a high starting bid and see if you get any bites.

On a side note, this is almost certainly a newer bike than what would be considered "vintage", so you might get more info on a different forum.
Thank you so much for your advice and sharing your knowledge. The components feel and look high end. My friend who gave it to me is the kind of guy that thinks the most expensive option is the best option, and he always has to have the best. I didn’t think it was exactly “vintage” but the company doesn’t exist anymore. Can I call the company vintage? Haha thanks again for your help!
