Default Do these look like they are worth $70 ea?

http://denver.craigslist.org/for/2199677200.html

I texted her and was told that they have been in storage for quite a long time and never used She said they might need new O rings and valves. I told her based on that info I could offer no more than $30/keg. Think that is fair?

They are nice but how often are your kegs on display? 30 bucks would be fair though. You would have nicer kegs than me but then again, so what?

Those look like they are in really good condition. Might come up 5 or 10 tops.

I personally dislike the ones with one handle but $30 is fair.

$70 each is retarded if they are anything but new. Sure they look to be in good shape, but you can still find good used ones for $25 if you look. The insides are always shiny, and that's what matters.

Thanks all for the validation. I thought $70 was way too high for kegs of questionable integrity. Not saying they are bad but if I have to go through the trouble of taking them apart to clean, replace O rings, and perhaps some parts then I am not going to pay a premium price

$25 kegs are becoming rare these days. the general going rate for a used keg has climbed to $40 in the past two years.

But, yeah.... $70 a pop is a steal if they are brand new, and a rip off if they are used.

or used ones.

This was my go to shop when i lived in Denver.

Paying that much for kegs is ridiculous.

I agree. I got 2 from BMW for $40 each with $7 shipping and they came with a free set of O rings. Typically when people have something brand new and never used they state it in their add. I got a text back from them saying that Williams Brewing sells these reconditioned for $99. Hmmm did not see that on their site. Perhaps they will find some buyers or will take me up on my offer
