A fair price is what the buyer and seller agree on. He is not forcing anybody to buy it. The government imposes a progressive tax on you: that's not fair. His interest is to make the most money. List it for $400. If it runs reliably, there's not much better transportation you can buy in that range. The cheapest moped will be double.
