Customer Question
I purchased brand new...

I purchased brand new in 1972 a Schwinn 26" Speedster (S/N BH055817) bicycle with a add-on headlight/taillight generator. I have the original owner's manual and the bicycle is in 'very good' condition. What is the market value of this bicycle?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not at this time.

A 1972 Schwinn 26" Speedster (S/N BH055817) with headlight and tail light generator

has a current value of $400 to $475 in good condition today.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
