    Late 80s schwinn super sport

    57cm Good condition, all original parts intact, original bar tape, Red triangle, black stays. Probably not alot of miles, sorry no pics...

    whats a ballpark value on one of these? I'm thinking $150?

    It sounds like an '86. Tenax, Shimano 600. 22 pound bike. Here it would go for ~$300.

    Might be a little bit more than 150. There's a late 80's World Sport in my town for sale for $225 (CL), which I think is about $50 too much. But he'll get that much eventually. But the Super Sport was a little higher up in the hierarchy wasn't it?

    Personally, i wouldn't think a world sport to be worth more than a hundred anywhere, and yes the SS is a much better bike

    I have a '86 Tempo and it is 22 lbs. and an awesome ride. Buy the Super Sport, you won't regret it.

    BTW, I totally disagree about the World Sport not being worth more than $100.00. I had one and sold it for much more and it had a 4130 frame, 12 speed Suntour Accushift that was extremely smooth and precise, nice wheels. you cannot buy ANYTHING for around $100.00 new that would compare to that bike, nothing. The guy that bought it emailed me a week later thanking me for keeping it in such good shape and for cleaning it up so well.

    To a flipper, maybe not worth it. To a rider, definitely worth it.
