Default 1977 Suzuki Gs550?

How much is a non-running Suzuki Gs550 worth? Im not sure what the problem is, but Im assuming its either a problem with the carbs, or with the electrical system. I would love to get this beast running, and on the road, but I simply have too many toys, and need the cash. Ive only had it for a couple days, so i dont know much of the past history.
Thanks!

More details would be helpful (i.e. condition, rust, etc.). Without this knowledge, it's difficult to estimate. In running condition, I would suggest $500 - $750. If it's not running, as you say it is, that would drop it down to $250-$400. Just my thoughts on the matter. Pics might be helpful, too.

The truth IS that it is worth what someone in your area is willing to pay for it. Even if we had a pic or description, it would be a wild guess at best. Advertise it at $1000 and let potential buyers tell you that is way out of line; it will make them feel good.

Well, you know, when you get all excited about "bumping the fist post," it's hard to wait even a few minutes...let alone a few hours!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that the 1st Amendment erected a "wall of separation" between the church and the state (James Madison said it "drew a line," but it is Jefferson's term that sticks with us today). The phrase is commonly thought to mean that the government should not establish, support, or otherwise involve itself in any religion.

Its.......A FACT!
