OK, experts. I'm a noob who's long been interested in owning a vintage British 3-speed. Found a 1962 Huffy Sportsman on CL for $150 -- link below. If I understand correctly, this bike is essentially a rebadged Raleigh Sports. Owner claims it to be in excellent condition. Pics aren't too good, but from what I can see, this could well be the case. If condition is indeed excellent, is this bike worth the asking price? I would ride it; not interested in flipping. Thanks in advance.

The classic 'English bike' as we called them in the late '50s. I don't think I would give $150 for it.
Looks like the only thing wrong with it is the Huffy branding. And that only affects resale. So as a keeper bike, why not go for it? Price is OBO, I would offer $125 assuming it is pristine and ready to ride. Front rack looks interesting!!
Vintage 3 speed market appears to be picking up around here.

neat bike, I'd offer him a flat $100 though if thats your thing... the huffy name makes it hard to sell...
If I was you, I would save that $150 to put towards a nice raleigh sports of that era... it may take you a year to find a real nice one. but they are out there.
he has it on ebay.
but it won't sell in 8 days, I'm rather sure of it.
he's trying to get $180 there...
The Huffy name makes it pretty worthless.Dont offer much.I picked up an almost mint black Huffy for $25
