Schwinn Sprint SS Conversion Value?

HE said he'd take $100. I'm not 100% sure it's worth that but it would be a nice ride around town bike. He is 6'3 so I'm asking him to measure the frame. It looks like 23 inches but we will see.

Priced too high in my opinion. Where I live you can barely give away a single speed, itís pretty hilly here though. Also the frame and components are all pretty low end.

I’m seeing a max of $50, given the season and current demand climate.

I would say not worth only $50 in my market if that. Also pretty low end overall and the SS build kinda sucks this bike would not be a good rider as is and would cost way more than the bike is worth to make it a good rider. I would say pass IMHO.
