Centurion Womens Female bike value

Hi Fellow Forum members!

Another interesting bike to discuss. I don't know much about it, I have someone offering to trade this bike to me on Craigslist. I have a few pictures. Any idea what the bike might be worth? Owner claims that all parts are original.

Thanks!

Nice looking Mixte but we need a bit more info. Frame material? Components?

More than likely, a Sport DLX with HiTen frame. If that's a Boston or NYC subway platform, in that condition, some noob would probably pay $150-$180 easily.

If I were buying, reconditioning to as new, and flipping, I'd want to pay no more than $75 for it. I'd be asking for 1/3 more than the above price range as well.

Thanks Everyone, I don't know very much about the bike, only what was told to me by the craigslist user. I am in NYC so that is a NYC subway platform. He wanted to trade bike for bike I have a Nishiki Comp II that I posted on here sometime last week. I am not going to go through with the trade I think my bike is worth more. People were telling $200-$250 for my bike so it doesnt seem to make sense.

Thanks again

Probly good you didn't trade this is a lower end Centurion Sports model with steel wheels and lesser components. I would say it is woth $100-$150 less than a Nishiki Comp in good condition. Mixte's are hot right now not this hot.
