I sold this ladies 730 yesterday for $165, new chain, saddle and seatpost, and a full tune-up.

But yours is quite a bit different than stock. First concern is that the fork has been replaced. That makes me think frame damage is a possibility, and I'd be giving the frame a very close inspection for signs of crimping, paint bubbling, etc.

Second - road stem on a hybrid, with chop & drop bars and STI shifters. That's a very aggressive riding position and will be a turn-off to most buyers compared to the stock stem & upright bars.

Looks like the wheels have been replaced as well, and Look pedals. The Look pedals only work if you're already into that system and is also a potential turn-off. I replace Look pedals with standard platform pedals to sell a bike.

It's a bit of a parts mash-up. That might be an issue for some buyers.

As is, maybe $200, assuming no frame damage, STI shifters working well (hopefully flushed & lubed), and no other issues. Finding the right buyer could take awhile, so that price is just a guess.

Well i could get this bike for under 100 bucks, is it worth for the parts so i could use them on my road bike and bring this one to more original condition?

Most of the value in the hybrid is in the shifters and wheels. Assuming no issues with those, sure, you could transfer them to a road bike. But then you'd have to spend some more money on parts to restore the hybrid, and that assumes that the frame doesn't have any damage, because if it does, not worth rebuilding.

Not having the original fork will detract value somewhat for the hybrid should you choose to rebuild it. I think it's a toss-up. Depends on how much free time, willingness and money you have to sink into the hybrid and the road bike you want to transfer the hybrid parts to. But if you're going into this thinking you'll come out ahead moneywise, maybe not. Have to make sure the shifters from the hybrid are compatible with the drivetrain on the road bike you want to transfer them to, probably 7-speed Shimano; I can't quite tell what shifters those are from the pix.
