Georgena Terry bike value

Hi Everyone,
Got another donation today of a georgena terry despatch bike at our community LBS. As it is not 100% original I was thinking of reselling it. I saw one example on ebay, but that one was in far better shape and all original. Any ideas?
Thanks,
Paul

Cleaned up with a bit of serviced tires cables and nicer pedals I think you could get a $250-300 to the right buyer but it may take awhile to sell.

Is that 105 or Exage? Where is your LBS? What is the frame size and standover? Asking for a friend

These really vary by location. I've had two Terrys. Thought I would make good money on them, I didn't. Took me a very long time to sell them at break even. Never again.

its a 105, we are located in Penticton BC Canada, frame size is 52cm, standover (the height of the top tube from the floor, correct? sorry, I'm new at this) is 74cm.

We also have that nice Gary Fisher I was asking about before. I think I might clean this one up and just put it on display also. I'm supposed to have 2 other vintage bikes coming in so that would work well as I have space for a 4 bike display

Oh, and we just got a bianchi piaggio in, nice condition mostly but a few scratches, all original, suntour gear. I was guessing about $100 for that one? Does that sound about right?

thanks,

Paul

It might take a while to sell, but it might also be a life changer for the right woman. I am pretty certain that the "Georgena Terry" frames were handbuilt by her, not by others under the name "Terry". (She had some very good framebuilders making her Terry's.)

That frame looks unusually high and short. The person it fits probably has never seen a good ride, ever.

I saw Georgena Terry's website last winter, E-mailed her (thanking her for the huge improvement I have seen for choices for women over the past 40 years, a trend she started). It was very clear from her reply that her passion is still there, that she simply loves making good frames that work well and being able to do that without all the hassles of operating a business and bike line.
