Murray bikes have very little cache. That bike looks rusty, but complete. It will take some time and a bit of elbow grease to get it right. If I wanted that style of bike, I'd offer $20.

I was going to say $25 or so. It is a girl's frame so it's not worth much in any condition except for absolutely mint. A comparable bike but with a men's frame would easily be worth $50+

Bike has no value. But if it is what you are looking for, then it has value to you. In that case, offer what you are comfortable paying. Just realize it has essentially no value so later if you decide to get rid of it, you may have to donate it.
