Default Yo Eddy Info Needed: What do I have here???

Hi all! This is my first post here. A friend of mine that used to work at a bike store told me about this site, so this seems like the place for Fat Chance info. I was cleaning out my garage yesterday when I ran across a Yo Eddy frame I used to ride. The serial number is 609Y3M. From what I can gather this makes it a 1993 model year bike and a medium size frame, correct?

Here are a bunch of pics:




There are some minor paint chips and scratches in the finish, but no dents. What is a 1993 Yo Eddy Aquafade in this sort of condition worth? I'd like to sell it, so what would be a fair price?

its hard to say what it is "worth."
an old saying in real estate is that your property is worth exactly what the highest price someone will pay for it.

if you want to ebay it you can count on getting upwards of 500 bucks probably.

or, there is a "for sale" section here on the forum... pick an asking price or ask for offers. I am sure someone would love to take it off your hands.

It is nice the colour matching suspension fork is still there.

I have a pretty similar one, but 2 years younger ->

Thanks for the info guys! I appreciate it. So $500 +/- would be a fair asking price then?

I really don't ride much anymore, and I'd like it to go to someone who will actually ride it rather than let it collect dust.

Ach, it's a 13-yr old scratched frame, I reckon about $50 - so I'll be generous and give you $75 for it...! Deal...?
