I sold one in Philly for $50 that still needed work. The buyer was a big time Schwinn fan and all other Varsitys on CL were asking well over $100. Kind of surprised I got $50 to be honest.

I cheaped out only because I didn't want to spend $120+ on a saddle that wasn't comfortable for me. $20 was a small investment to see how the shape felt.
