    Is my '74 Schwinn Town & Country Trike w/ a Sears motor on it worth selling?

    Okay so now that I've enjoyed this bike for a couple years, I'm thinking about selling it. I'd like to get a new model trike with a bigger seat.

    So can anyone tell me what this may be worth to someone or point me to where I might find out? Here's a couple pictures. The motor works great after replacing all fuel lines, etc. It is really cool. Thanks,

    Good chance the trike and the motor would find different interested buyers. These trikes are expensive to ship, so local(ish) will be the market for the trike. the motor could find a wider audience. Around here (Southern California) the trike would fetch $200 at least.

    Worth selling versus?

    I pretty much sell anything I am no longer using.

    +1 Local market only due to shipping.

    Before removing the motor, I would probably try to sell complete. It limits your market to a really special buyer, but if he is out there, you should do fine!

    Thanks for the input. Guess I'll keep using it as I have been. Surely I have over $200 in the trike and another $120 in the motor. You all told me what I wanted to know. Thanks again.
