Johnson Seahorse 4.5HP - Worth?

This is the old engine off the smaller Nashers SIB, and has only been replaced because I got hold of a slightly lighter newer engine earlier this year.

It is for sale, and I'm open to offers, but I'd like to know what others think Its worth before I ebay it or put it in the for sale section here.

Its a twin cylinder with built in fuel tank, has Forward, Neutral and Reverse gears plus a twist grip with stop button in the end.
The hood is a little cosmetically rough but is sound, and overall its in good condition and runs well with a strong tell-tale.

The images are from 2 summers ago, and since then I've fitted new plugs, gearbox oil, impellor, a kill switch and decoked it, at which point it got a new head gasket and exhaust chamber gasket.
Since all this has been done its run for @6hrs.

It last ran at the beginning of last summer, when it was put into dry storage, but I will run it up and check it over before its sold.

So, what do we think it's worth?

Up to about £175 depending on how hard you haggle. I wouldn't take much less for it-you might be able to buy one on Ebay for £120 but you'll spend a day and £50 on it to get it to the same standard.

If you ebay it I'd point that out-people stop seeing £ signs very fast when they they're saving themselves a bucket of hassle.

I was going to say around £150, so NoS is about there. You could try it on B&O first.
