Any Value

Would like to know if this bicycle has any value mu husband got it somwhere along with some more. Some people have told me it is worth some money others tell me to sell parts. It is a complete Bicycle I really wouldn't want to take it apart unless it would be more valuble to so it that way.

It is probably rare, but also not really desired, a possible 50's Japanese "roadster" patterned off of a British bike. The incomplete old Tacoma bicycle plate may be the most attractive. The condition appears pretty rough, so from here I do not see that in parts it will have tremendous value, with the risk that some parts will break upon removal w/o lots of care. Anyone state specifically what parts were desirable? I do not think there is a gold mine here.

I would say it was worth more as a complete bicycle than parted out. Japanese roadsters are pretty good bikes.

Well, it is "The Finest Bicycle Ever Made." lol..

Sorry I can't give you a value, they just are not very common over here.
