I found a 1969 Western Flyer Fairway Flyer comfort bike. $40, wondering if it is worth cleaning up and reselling. 271934
Ive seen a lot of that type of bike on eBay...best bet would be to go to eBay, advanced search and search completed auctions to see what they have been going for.
I bought that bike (1969 Western Flyer Fairway Flyer comfort bike) for $37.77 cash and picked up locally. I am not sure I can sell bike as is and make any money off it. It is clean and has very little or no rust, I was wondering if I should sell parts off it and save the rest of the parts for the future. I might can sell the wheels and brake cables etc. It has a single gears 3 speed rear hub. Shiny wheel fender, handle bar have a twist shifter. Whats your thoughts?
Not worth the effort to part out. Air up tires, and sell it as a complete bike, for $40 to $50 around here. Now if you plan to work on discount store level vintage 3 speeds in the future, sure, hang on to the parts.
In a hot market, you might get $100 for it. Red hot markets, maybe even more. Location, location, location.

I can't imagine parting would be worth the trouble. Could probably get $80 for it here, up to $125 if patient.
Seat clamp is backwards.
