    Un branded with nexus 3 speed internal hub?

    I just got this sprayed over no name on it cruiser.

    However, it does have a working 3 speed nexus internal shifting hub. This alone would make this worth at least $100? Even if the rest of the bike is on the ghetto side? Or?

    Also, would it be worth more if I put the tires and shifer on a better known frame? For example, I have an old Trek 800 Antelope frame. With this gearing set up and a Trek frame would this be worth more?

    I need help because I have no clue as to the value of something like this.

    I guess it depends on the condition of the hub. If its like new then yeah you could probably get $100 out of it. If you slapped it on the Trek frame i guess you could market it as a commuter bike but buyers might frown upon it not being original. All depends on the buyer.

    New hub is ~$70. Bike is worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

    Is your goal to build the most sellable bike, or for you to ride? I'm not sure from your post.

    If it's to ride, I'd change that front sprocket out and ride it. I can't see the welds etc, but it looks like a decent and comfy cruiser as it sits.
