How much can I sell air door mechanics for?

I took off all the air door mechanics since I'm not going to be picking up kids while driving...it's pointless, so I decided to take it off. It's in perfect working condition. Have all the screws and parts. I was wondering if I can sell it on eBay or Craigslist. How much could I sell it for?

It's worth as much as you can get someone to pay for it, or scrap.

Other people have used those mechanisms for things on their bus just for fun. Did you already replace the door?

Nope, still have the door. Going to put in a nice handle and lock. I would like to keep the actual doors. I think I'll just sell it. Maybe $200?

I naively gave my old one away, and now have a bus with a weak air cylinder in the door.
But $200 is dreaming man, its like a hundred bucks or so for a brand new one on ebay.
I'm considering trying to find/build a regular manual setup with a big chrome handle.

You can probably tear the cylinder apart and replace some seals and it'll work like new.

Yeah, I know.
Just one more thing on the to-do list.

I'm not sure I've heard of anybody actually selling the seats out of their bus (except for steel recycling). The situation with the door cylinder is probably only slightly better: the cylinder actually is useful, but anybody who has good money they want to spend on a pneumatic ram probably wants it a specific size, new condition, more than one available, etc.

Keep it and nourish your inner mechatronics nerd until you dream up something wonderful. You've got a ram, a few solenoid valves, a separator, a handful of rods and clevises..

Yeah, pull the door air switch and an air foil could pop up on the roof. An air foil combined with a flame paint job would definitely make your bus faster.
