Bike Value??

hey bmx guys and gals.

i've got a late 90's GT Speed Series 24" Cruiser that i'm trying to sell, but i don't know how much to ask for the bike. here's the specs:

-GT Speed Series 24" aluminum Cruiser frame w/chromo forks (the frame is the one with the big boxy chainstays, if that makes any difference.)
-GT 3pc Cranks(stock chromo)
-GT Chainwheel(stock)
-XS flip/flop hubs laced to BFR rims
-Answer aluminum 2pc bars
-Atomic Stem
-Shimano DX V-Brake
-stock headset and bottom bracket

everything is in great shape. the bike may need a tune, but otherwise this bike is rock solid.

so, what do you think? i was thinking about $300-$350, does this sound about right?

any help is appreciated. thanks.

****ATTN: MODS****

I AM NOT LISTING THIS FOR SALE, STRICTLY TRYING TO GET A PRICE ESTIMATE ON THIS BIKE. THANKS.

best bet is to look on or put it on Ebay. and expect to get much less then what you think it's worth.

Gt box series frames usually do pretty well with sales.

How do you think a 1987 General Blood pro series would fare?
near mint condition/near perfectly original?
I had a gt performer sell for 220.

Based on the prices of new bikes, not much. Personally, I wouldn't think of paying more than $200.

That bike was awesome when it came out, and has some good parts on it, try ebay and ask like $250 for it.

That's certainly not "Near mint". Rough and rusty is more like it.

Ill admit in the pictures that the handle bars have some more surface rust on them that needs to be cleaned, but some times pics don't show all. for being 18 year old freestyle bike, that doesn't have a scratch on it's stickers, i'd call it near mint,,,, for arguement well say could be near mint
