Motobecanes anyone? A NEWBIE- born in B'klyn - stuck south of Boston!

Greetings all. I'm new here and new to forums in general.
I tinker with bikes, like to ride. Buy or find, fix and sell.
I ride an old Diamond Back mountian bike, modified a little for comfort, and a Schwinn 3 speed.
Started in high school (Midwood in B'klyn) with a La Pierre "Tour du France" from Carl Hart's!
Try to make a few extra $$ here and there selling off good bikes to good people and might find a hidden jewel for myself or my son.

So right now I got what I thought would be an easy flip. I've had the damn thing for WAY too long now.
Been trying to sell it on craigslist.
It's a mid '70s Motobecane "Nomade II". Almost mint! A few minor scratches and nicks. Hardly used.
....with a 65cm frame!
Any ideas? Coments?
Any [i]TALL[i] people out there?
I also have a Motobecane Le Vale just like the one this old thread:
I'd like to find out a $ value for these critters.
I got an idea, but I could be wrong.
What do the experts have to say?!?!
