The bar end shifters would get you $60 parted out and you may want to keep the Flickstand. Does the speedometer work?

So that's what it's worth... why post it in here?

I'm a little confused. Are you asking for the value of the bike after you sell it? From your post, it appears that is what you are doing. Why ask the value after the sale?

When I ask for a value, it is because I want to be fair to prospective buyers.

Nothing wrong with earning a buck. This is a great forum to learn fair prices--not to see how much more you can sell something than what it is worth.

wrk101 is responding to your flippant attitude to which you responded to the selling the overpriced huffy. I would have like to have seen craigslist posting for the Huffy. If you didn't know the value, then how did you arrive at $140?

Also, it appears that dirtyharry is your alter-ego or maybe you have multiple personalities.

I know who has the bike now and can get it back, i was thinking about asking him about it. I have always wondered what it was worth and if it was quality.

The aerowind, same thing but i deleted the post a while ago and that was a random buyer.

wrk101 dont know me, dirtyharry is my good homie and we ride all the time.
