Burton Seven

So yesterday while driving down the road I came across someone throwing away their old Burton Seven board. It is the 155cm from 2006. There was some base damage which I easily patched up with a bit of p-tex, and in addition there was a piece of the edge missing. I have already invested 23 dollars into fixing the board (without repairing the missing edge) and am wondering how much I could sell it for. I'm looking for a good investment and will be posting pictures soon.
How much should I spend repairing the board?
Will it be more efficient to sell the board with or without bindings?

Sorry to say, you will never see your $ 23.00 again.

You would have been at your highest efficiency by never stopping to pick up the board.

Get it. Wax it. Ride it.

No, he means a joint for smoking, so that you can sit down and think about the fact that you spent money on someone's garbage.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Hey, my second board was a Sims I found in the garbage and it was soooo much better than my first one


OP: a damaged/repaired board from '06 won't sell. Since you like to craft, make a bench of it

Neni, nothing wrong with riding a second hand board, but trying to sell trash is a whole different story.
