I think Slick is right on with the price. I think it would go nuts on ebay. I, personally would pull off the basket and leave it just the way it is. I LOVE it and I'm fare from a Schwinn fan.I'll be completely honest with you in all aspects. Ive been into prewar bikes for 22 years now. First off, incredible find. Phenomenal. Its definitely a repaint,BUT....don't try to clean it or strip the paint. Leave that for the next owner. The original paintis probably still under there and most likely canbe saved. Next, don't part it out. EVER. The only incorrect parts are the basket and the rear rack. Value wise.....drum roll please....on a low end..... $4,500. But on a high end id say $6500. If the original paint was very nice with correct rack, nice original plating on the chrome.... $9k plus. So. Do you sell or keep? Honestly you will never find another and won't be able to replace it for what you aquired it for im sure of that. So your best bet is ebay to sell it on or the cabe. Id start off at $7k on cabe. You can always go down but i wouldn't go much further down than that. In all my years of collecting, ive never owned an Aerocycle and probably never will unfortunately but they are on my dream list. Congratulations once again and think really seriously about whatever you decide. You have the holy grail there.
