Re: what is my bike worth
I might take the $400. Unfortunately our bikes usually aren't worth in the public market market what they are to we of this forum.
You have a nice build- the custom things make it better than the run of the mill build- but most of the public doesn't appreciate that fact.
It's why I haven't built any bikes to sell (besides being old and arthritric). They are hard to clear a profit on- that may change some if transportation gets any more tight or expensive.
But it helps to be here in Florida I think- the bikes are more viable more of the year- Mine have been very practical gas savers, and savers of miles on the car. Ido quite a lot of my shopping and transport with my bikes.
Be patient if you can- but i don't think $400 is too bad- I see builds here on Craigslist in Jacksonville occassionally for $150- $200- though most are probably $300 or $350- some more, and not sure how fast they sell.
good luck with it.
