Value of a late 70s/early 80s Gazelle dutch bike??
We have an old late 70's or early 80's Gazelle dutch bike which I want to sell since we have not used it in years.
We do not know how old it is. My wife got it as a teenager and we brought it with us to the US when we moved here in 2001.
It is a white Sport Primeur. It has the 3 speed hub with coaster brakes. It has the rear wheel lock with the key.
It also has the dynamo powered lights which I could not test so far since the tires are flat.
The bike has seen its abuse and is scratched pretty good. The rear skirt protectors are damaged too. The right one has a hole and the left one is basically gone except the frame around it.
It has been sitting in a shed for years. No rust. But it is in working condition. Assuming I get the tires fixed.
Long story short: I put it on Craigslist for a few $ and suddenly I am getting bombarded with emails offering me much higher prices. This got me wondering what the real value is. I have to admit that I have no clue.
I have posted pictures here:
I do not want to make a living from it but just get a fair price.
Does anyone know how much they are worth here in the US? I checked out ebay but could not find any bikes either.
