    Owner says it’s a 1955 and rides smooth. 26” bicycle

    Serial # Fm61241

    Any ideas what it’s worth? Thanks everyone

    EDIT: appears it’s a 1976 model is this correct??

    You are correct about 1976. Price depends on location and supply. In Idaho that would we worth $120-200. In Iowa, less than $100.

    Not a whole lot my friend. It is a single speed cruiser and someone slapped some cheap paint on it. Has a lot of rust on rims and some rust on fenders. I would personally not pay more than $ 60 for it.

    Now if it was a 1955 model and had a 2 Speed kick back hub then 100 to 150. This takes into consideration the crappy paint job on it now.

    In my area it's $100 and lower bike. CA is a different market. Look for something without those S7 rims if your going to ride it and want tire choices. I have some S7 rims and it's very limited variety of rubber. They are fine for keeping something correctly configured, but for a rat, or daily rider I prefer something else. Just my $0.02
