    1966 Schwinn Collegiate

    Hey! I'm Zach and I collect stuff and I recently came across a 1966 Schwinn Collegiate with lights and battery pack, front and back, '66 '67 Dallas Texas License plate, Basket, cup holder, and some rust spots but nothing major. It has the original S5? rims and tires. It is a 5 speed, blue-ish teal color. I love this bike but I just do not know how much it is worth if I want to sell it. Could somebody please help me out? I bought it for 50 bucks...

    Around me that is around an 80-100 dollar bike cleaned up and with new tires/tubes. The basket is worth about 15. That light may be worth something, I'm not familiar with it. I know those "S" seats go for a few bucks.

    The light in the front is hooked up to a 6v battery pack witch goes past to the end of the basket to 3 little round red rear lights. You turn the Headlight on, All the lights turn on. And thanks for giving me what you know. I found out it is a April 1966 Schwinn. Some Colors are rare but I do not think this one is. I just have to take it to a Bike shop in town and ask them how much it will cost to hook up all the lights and make sure they work, and also give it a tune up. Prob. around 50 to a hundo bill. Thanks for your Appraisal!
