I don't know if this inquiry is OK or not. Mods, please delete if it's not.

I have a near mint condition (50 miles maybe) black Swallow that I want to place on Craigslist. What would be a fair asking price?

Check sold prices on ebay and figure half or less for a local sale. Convenience = less money.

Do you have packaging? 75% of retail. Take nice shots. A 15-second google search turned up swallow at $137 at bikeinn (.com), so... ask $100. Advertise it's like new at 25% off list, plus no tax or shipping, which really means more like 30%.
Anything brooks in my area goes from $60 for the ratty b-17s to full retail for nice examples, and that's on craigslist.
