Grey Ghost - Info needed

We have what we believe to be a Grey Ghost. Could I get your ideas on what I should be selling it for? Its missing the seat.
Thank you!

Not a Grey Ghost. Among many other differences, the Grey Ghost had a 16" front wheel and a 20" rear wheel; the bike pictured has 26" wheels front and rear, although the angle from which the picture was taken makes it appear that the front wheel is smaller.

If you're planning to try to sell the bike, be sure to take pictures from the drivetrain side, and avoid using camera angles that distort the proportions of the bike. You don't want to inadvertently deceive prospective buyers.

Looks like the remains of a Schwinn Manta Ray. Worth $200-300 in the condition of the OP.

Edit: if you can find a decent seat and sissy bar, and if all the original parts are there, you're looking at $500+
