Default Time to give up?

So I've been working on this thing since last summer, pouring around $800 into this thing, being a highschooler... that's a lot.

I've always had problems with this thing, having to replace part after part, and never had it working for more than a 2 weeks, something eventually goes wrong. I admit most of those things are my fault, but it's really frustrating to have to push this heavy bike a couple miles up hill whenever it breaks down.

This weekend I saw one of my front mount studs broken off, I can't easy-out the thing, it won't work. Then I saw my down tube has a big crack.

I think I'm done -- how much should I be able to sell this on craigslist? This really greasy engine, and cracked Nirve B1? I guess this is more of a rant... hope all goes well for everybody else.
The best part about asking questions, is that you add to the pool of information that future builders can look back on through the search function
