It's tough to find one cheap these days. The last one I had I only paid $40 for on EBAY...it worked pretty well too. Last time I looked they were getting as pricey as a 200...

No. That was the expensive one. My first 140B was free.

I sold the second one for about $450 and thought I was king of the world...

I have two 140B's right now but they are both painted black... One of them painted well and the other one looks like it's been living the rock and roll lifestyle. Both play wonderfully, which is why I picked them up, and if you're not concerned about cosmetics they are going to be great player's pianos. My plan is to sell them cosmetically as-is at a bargain or give them a custom re-finish done right... Maybe a Gold Top Les Paul Look with a custom wrap veneer...

If you're interested in either option give me a call and I'd be glad to work out a deal!
