    Are you wondering what to try to sell it for?

    The price for something like that isn't set by the money you've put into it, but rather what someone else is willing to pay for it. And somewhat beat up old 10-speeds are real common.
    Varsities were in production a long time, and their desirability varies a lot with what year and what condition they're in

    If there's a buyer who just wants ANY bike, you'd basically be lucky just to get the money spent on tires back.

    If there's a buyer who's interested in your bike in particular, then you might make some cash from it.

    A few links:http://sheldonbrown.com/varsity-shaddox.html, http://sheldonbrown.com/varsity.html

    Otherwise, look at ebay, craigslist and such. Find other Varsities, see what ones similar to yours are selling for. Ebay has everything between $25 and over $1000.
