I have several factory wings, just wondering what they are worth? There's only 1 on eBay and the guy wants $400.. I think that's a bit high

In my experience the stands are worth more than the wing.
Plus they ship cheap if sold alone. Do you have stands?

400 is quite high IMO, even if it has stands.

Honestly, a wing by itself is worth almost nothing (around here anyway). I see the same ones come and go on Craigslist for months at a time for about $100.

But, if the wing stands / supports are in good shape - meaning no cracks or stripped mounting holes, then it has some value. Whenever I find a wing in the junk yard I just grab the stands (if they are in good shape) and leave the wing. I have seen a set of stands sell for $75 to over $150.

Its also about condition.
Some wings are warped over the years as well, make sure it is flat and not bowed.
Many also have had a threaded insert bust free, the same with the stands.

If the threaded insert in the wing is bad or missing, it is just a well nut. They're generally available at larger hardware stores or Fastenal. Anytime I have the stand off an original wing, I replace the well nuts, any way.
