selling a Miele bike for an elderly neighbour

It was her Grandson's it's a Miele BB262 18 1/2" Good shape, tires look pretty new, so not much use.
I cannot find a value or see one anywhere online. How old is this model and what was approx cost. Tires alone look very expensive!

Thank you for any help you can give.

Regards,
Jacquie

Without pictures and knowing where you live(what city, not your address), there is little we can do to help with any kind of appraisal. Size, location, condition and model are all important to help determine the bicycle's value. And, in some places, time of year will also help to define value.

If you can, take some photos. Go to Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet and upload all of them. Then come back here and post the album/gallery ID which is the alphanumeric part after the URL I'm putting in RED text here:

hxxp://www.imgur.com/gallery/0hEjh

As a new member you can't just post the link. But if you give us the ID in red, we can link it up for everyone to see. This is the only accurate way anyone can help here with dating/model/price evaluation.

NOTE: That red part is case-sensitive

...or go to the Intro section, and post a hello to nine of your new friends in their posts for a total of at least 10. Then you can attach pix directly from your computer without a third party hosting site.

These are a pretty basic mountain bike made in Canada there seems to be several listed on Kijiji for 100-150 CAD not moving fast. While some pics would help I would say $125-150 in very good condition ready to ride with nice tires.
