Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Seatposts are easy to get out if you don't mind destroying them.
First try using some ammonia to break up that * oxide. Then if the ol' twist 'n' pull doesn't work, flip the bike upside-down, put the top of the post in a vice, and use that frame for torque and just keep trying to twist until it breaks free. First concentrate on the twist, then on the pulling out.

Twist off its head and spike it onto the floor of a nightmare it can't even imagine! Dance with it in this six sided ring of fire.

Raleigh Technium with true wheels, new tires & tubes and an unstuck seatpost. $140.00- $200.00 depending on what groupo. it has.
-$20.00 if the seatpost just needs to be worked loose.
-$40.00 if its really bad.
-$20.00 if wheels need to be trued
-$60.00 if wheels are shot and need to be replaced.
-$30.00 if the bike needs new tires and tubes.
-$5-40 for small dents and dings and scratches.
-$10-60 if components are shot.

I might say sell it for 50 cents, but even that might be 45 cents overpriced.
