Bike Value question

We have a mid 80's Sanwa Women's Champion 400 road bike, with 27x1/1/4 inch tires, medium frame, great condition. Wondering how much to ask, looking to sell it? Thanks.

As always, post photos of your bike including close-ups.

Also note any labels that list the tubing type.

Go to the advanced editor and click on the paper clip icon

JPG images are best, somewhere around 100 kb. Images larger than that will get resized.

Just a guess from the info provided.
Here in Seattle area, just about any bike that works is asking $100 - $150 on CraigsList. I do not believe the Sanwa step-thru is a special bike in any regard, so that's about your range. Finding a buyer may require you to drop your price.
