This is a very nice-looking original owner PX-10, in Michigan:

Don't know anything about its worth (except that it's too rich for my blood), but I gather from reading various threads that a lot of C&V'ers enjoy this bike.

Wow. Very nice-looking, but I seriously wonder what it will actually sell for. Certainly not asking price. ...Right?

Beautiful bike, totally crazy price. Not a prayer of selling. Perhaps a BBC disciple?

I would think maybe $800 if someone really wants one. There were a lot of PX-10's imported in the 1970's so it's not too difficult to find one.

Yes, those prices are along the lines of what I was thinking, but didn't want to say so without knowing for sure.

With it being that original and in its condition, I'd expect 8 to 900. May have to wait a long time for the right buyer, but they're out there!

.......bout a $500 bike here. Maybe 6 on a good day in season.

There's just too much other better stuff competing in the over $400 class on CL here.

Personally, I think this is indicative of a recent phenomenon I've noticed here of E-bay pricing on CL ads.
I can't blame people, but it's unrealistic, given the differences in audience.

Price is over double what the bike could ever sell for. Maybe if it was new-in-box...

Sweet bike, ridiculous price.

Asking price stupid ridiculous. May just be fishing for offers though-- my guess is 600$-800 or so, ebay price. Hoping to get that, maybe, sans fees.
