Bike sale ?

Hey how's it going? I live in MD, just north of Baltimore and I'm thinking of selling an older Raleigh that I converted to fixed. Where do you guys think I should try selling it to get the most out of it? How much do you think I should ask? It's a Raleigh Record frame, with a Pake crank, Sugino BB, Soma bars, a front brake that I took of an old BMX bike and honestly I don't remember what the wheelset is, though if I dig I can find the receipts. The frame if I remember correctly is either a 52-54 but I can measure that after work tonight. What do you guys think? I also posted this in the Northeast Regional section.

Looks like you did a great job with it, and the frame has classy colors. Seems like it could be a nice touring setup with different bars. It might be listed for $300 in the NYC area, and then take $250?

You could start a thread in the SS/FG Forum asking how much and where to sell it on the off chance that someone wants to buy it.

Or you could use Craigslist/Ebay.....

Thanks ADSR and Zip, I wanted to be somewhere around $250ish but wasn't sure if that was too much to ask. And that's why I posted Brig, to get an idea of what and where to sell it. Never sold a bike on the internet and I haven't been paying much attention to the current price trends 'n such. I built this bike and it just doesn't fit me right so it just sits. Thanks for the help guys, don't feel like dealing with Ebay so listing on CL.
