The other issue I see is modifications made to gear. I see them usually as a detriment as the item is no longer what the maker made so I am no longer interested in it. The trap I see is folks buying gear, spending a bundle changing it then wanting to sell it for close to what they have into it. Sometimes it works. Often it does not. Just something to consider.
I have always looked at buying used gear for half of what it sells for new. Then, depending on how much I really want it I may go up a little more. At some point there comes the threshold that if I am paying close to 75% of its new value, I would prefer to just get a new one. When I sell things, I will typically aim for about 65-70% of the new value and plan to negotiate from there. Pending condition of gear, price could be lower... Good luck.

For estimating a good asking price, should you wish to sell anyway: Search past sales here, and at ebay. Because your North American (NA) is different than others with the same make and model, I'd expect of you as a real community member that you describe what you are selling so well that a buyer doesn't by reasonable default believe she is getting something other than what you are offering.
No apologies for the previous sentence. It parses / computes. Yes, you are right that Clark lengths have changed. So have the sizes and designs of the excellent tarps / rain flys included as part of the Clark package.
I would just post the pictures with a description and list it as Best Offer. Then you can put down the offers given and have a bid off.
