does not get to be the "how much can I get for this?" forum. Really, how the hell can anyone judge the going price on a bike without seeing it? Consider the variables: tubing, components, wear, production years, the mode of selling and on and on. A bike is worth what you can get for it. A better question is, where can I find out about this bike? and it's tubing, components et cetera so I can make an intelligent decision on selling it. No one can tell you what you have if you don't have the knowledge to give an accurate description.

I expressed an opinion, never mentioned censorship. Post as you like and you are likely to get a response (witness below). However, I maintain, that asking the possible price of a bicycle with almost no info (re:steel tubing!!!)or even picture is all but useless for you. Take the opportunity to harm yourself with knowledge, or not, as you please.

I've got to agree with Djudd here. What he is saying (my reading of it) is....
How can any one tell, sight unseen, what a bike (or anything else) is worth from a sketchy description?
I too, don't want this board to become an "Antiques Roadshow" or flea market apprasial (sp) service.
I'd hate to see this board devolve into a meaningless list of "what's this worth??" postings.
He is not asking you not to post anything, merely offering a better approach to getting the information you need.
I think the responses you got were more informative than I would have expected from the information you provided.
