I could use some help

Hello all. I am trying to help my grandmother out by cleaning out her garage. My cousin, who lived with her, left behind a proflex beast. I believe it is a 96 or a 97 in fair condition. What would be a fair asking price? Thanks in advance.

Looks like a four inch setup, Noleen chubby dual crown fork. It's not worth much other than to a collector.
But it's great to see one in one piece!

For something that old, you're better off trying to get what you can. If you overprice, somebody is either going to buy it, too bad for the person who didn't do enough research, or they're going to try to talk you down. Either way, you get to decide how much money you're going to take for it. I have no idea what the specs are, but I would probably offer you around $100 for it if I really needed something to get into riding.

Like was stated before, it's got a limited market. Have you thought of keeping it for yourself and just using it as a beater? I notice you ride a DK GL, maybe mountain biking will be another option? Also, does your cousin not want it anymore?
