I would think in good used condition the cassettes would be worth $40-50 and the look rings about $10. Figure on about 30-40% more if there nos.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

The value here would be to someone he!!-bent on restoring a Suntour-equipped bike.
Be prepared to wait a bit if you price yours at $100 and only have one "sold" example at that price.
Cassettes usually don't go for that much - and Accushift does not have a stellar reputation.

Interesting selling prices. I would think that the SunTour cassette would go for a lot less, based on the rationale in the previous post. Conversely, I would think that those Uniglide outer cogs would go for more. There are a lot of Uniglide equipped bicycles out there and a new cog is the cheapset and easiest option, when your old one wears out. The other options are a swap to a HyperGlide body or a new hub/wheel.

It actually makes sense in a way if you have a nice vintage bike with Top end 7 speed Suntour stuff that just needs a cassette $75-100 while steep is cheaper and easier than replacing most of the groupo. Plus it will keep the bike original I have paid steep prices for a single part to keep a group intact and working and I'm fairly cheapo when it comes to parts.

I wouldn't be surprised if you could sell your SunTour cassettes for well over $50. Someone with a SunTour freehub will likely be willing to pay a premium because their choice is to buy a super rare SunTour cassette like yours or to replace their hub and potentially the whole friggin' drivetrain.
