    schwinn corvette

    Please help my friend with the value of his Corvette. It is a three-speed. Thanks much. The rear fender is dented and rear lense is missing also. The rust is very light and the graphics are pretty worn. Shift cabl;e is missing and part is still in the hub, shift lever slightly bent. the rest is pretty primo but filthy. Sorry about the link, couldn't get the image to load.

    Donation fodder in that condition. Drop it off at your favorite thrift store.

    Well, here's it's cousin, in even worse shape, for $90. Good to dream. I would be embarrassed to donate this one below:

    As a pre-teen, you are talking about the bike of my dreams. I had pics of the Corvette from the Walt Disney comic books I had back then. The comic books, if I had them, would be worth more than the bike. I never did get one because saving up for one was almost impossible. By the time I had the money to buy one, I was dreaming about owning a car, and the only Corvette I ever owned was a 69 Stingray LT-1.

    Looks more dirty than rusted. It would be valued more in a Schwinn forum. Is he planning on cleaning it up?

    Thanks for the lead, His idea of cleaning involves a 3M clean and strip wheel and a rattle can. I am trying to place it in a good home before that happens. the condition is dirty but very light rust.
