Beer would be a nice palliative, it usually is. But if you sell the bike for a profit (likely) maybe you could cut him in as a partner. After all he was presumably selling it to you to use. You bought it for $40, plus you put say $60 into it and sell it for $250, that's $150 which you could cut him in for 1/3 of. Going out of your way to be fair to him, but isn't that what friends are for?
