What is a Schwinn Premis worth?

!988. Smaller frame. Good condition.

Need quality pics of the actual bike, rather than the catalog page. Its all about condition.

If you don't want to go to that trouble, just do a search on values for Schwinn Preludes, the value of the Premis is within a couple of dollars. Compare those bikes condition wise to the one you are valuing, and adjust. Detroit is a slow market, which will push the value down some.

Premis is a one year bike, so either nobody is looking, or one guy is desperate for one

It filled a price point between the Tempo and Prelude with a nicer frame but so-so components.

Pulled out of storage as is, it's probably at most $150; gone over it might go up to $250.


In Detroit, probably less is what I gather.
