Not sure if this is the right place for this but here it goes...

Say I buy a 80m-100m SP Super pilot on the bazaar with the intention to strip the SP for fun and profit.. What skills should I leave so that the 5m SP husk can be resold for around 3-5 bil ISK.

I don't think it matter what is left over after stripping the character. What is desireable for a sp miner is Cybernetics at 5 and mapped to some certain training. Anything else is inconsequential.

There are a lot of stripped characters on the bazaar. Who would want to buy them?

Possibly someone who wants to expand their sp farm in which case Cybernetics 5 and clones with +5s in would be ideal. As Morgan mentioned above.

Apart from that, if you happened to get a character that had high faction and / or corp standings with some trade skills that might sell at a premium to a trader as grinding standings is a pain.

If you are planning to strip and flip, you should look at leaving a focused skillset that people can buy and use with no additional training. There are several very useful characters you can make with less than 5 million SP.

I am currently training a PI/research ALT. It will take me 3 PLEX and 3 months to get near perfect skills for PI and blueprint copying. This will be the 3rd character on an account and will only undock to harvest PI so piloting and combat skills are unnecessary. I would gladly have paid 3-4 billion for a stripped character with the right skills.

Other options include freighter pilot, T2 manufacturing, mining, etc...

Cybernetics V Cyno V
Trade skills
Scanning skills + PI for WH alt
I would stick to the area of the game that you know, you will have a much better idea of the demand for such a low skill alt. Spend some time everyday looking at the character bazaar learn what sells quickly.
Faction standings is a good one for level 5 mission puller and trade.
