I have an old baby blue AMF dynamic road bike in pretty good condition. I have no idea how much it is worth. Does anyone else out there have one and if so do you know its value?

$20 in good shape. Maybe $80 if virginal and you find the right suc___, err I mean buyer.

Not many of the folks here in Road Cycling care much about bikes from the 20th century.

Since you're new here, I'll try to think of something good to say about AMF bikes ...... um ..... they .... uh ....... I give up.
Edit: If you want a serious appraisal of a bike, you need to include pictures. Closeups of the drivetrain and condition of the frame etc ... More & better pictures = better answers. Since you just bought it, it's "worth" whatever you paid for it. Otherwise, the $20 guess above is probably about right, based on my memories of AMF.

Well I finally found some information on them, and I see why there is nothing good to say. I actually just drove up to Louisville, KY and purchased Schwinn Premis. I am enjoying it a whole lot more and can't believe how much lighter it is.

The Schwinn Premis was/is a great road bike. Post a photo or two when you can.

the worst bike I ever had to work on was an AMF. It was brand new, about 1980. It had something wrong with the headset and it simply was not possible to adjust the headset even though it was meant to be adjusted in the normal way. It basically was like the prop TV's you see in a furniture store. Looks like a bike, but not meant to be ridden. The $70 Walmart bikes of today are better quality.
