    80's Apollo Touring Bike Worth?

    I'm not too familiar with the models that Apollo had, can't seem to make out a tubing sticker either, probably Ishiwata tubing of some sort. Thoughts? Anyone have any personal experience?

    I sold my Apollo Grand Tourist for either $350 or $450 USD, plus shipping costs, about three years ago(sorry about my poor memory). My bike was in excellent condition and I do regret letting it go...

    I have an Apollo Gran Tour. It's different than your. Maybe lower grade too. I really like it except I'm always scared of falling on the top bar. This frame is quite tall (24" I think) and I'm used to raised up high seats and bars not that the top tube is close to my crotch. Not sure of the value tho. I got mine for free in a pile of bikes ready to go to the metal recycler. What a shame. But it's safe now.
    Please don't mind the green sticker and the bike mess behind.

    Thinking about it, one of my favorite ride is an Apollo and I also have some others that are in the repair pile that I have never tried yet. I will check what they are tomorrow.
    here's my Apollo ladies. Maybe not related but she rides really well.

    Looks around a 58 , maybe 57? I'm thinking I may grab it, though it would be a present for my Dad.

    The Apollo Grand Touriste - the best bicycle ever made. These are getting very hard to find. If you do happen to come across one of these beauitful bicycles buy it and cherish it because you may not find another one ever again.
