Value of girls freespirit w coaster brake and rebuilt Tanaka engine

Have a Freespirit Sears girl's bike with coaster brake and I rebuilt the Tanaka Engine.

Want to sell and would like to know value......from the mid 60's I think. Engine excellent, bike shows normal aging. Have original Sears tires and Allstate tubes. All good tread. Have installed new tires.

Welcome to the forums. Can you post a pic of the bike in question? This shows no detail and all I see is a ladies cruizer of some sort.

The bike is worth about $40-$50. You could ask more but you'd probably end up having to wait a long time to find a buyer. The motor is worth about $100-$150 tops. An NOS one recently sold for $158. Selling them separately is probably the way to go as you might have a hard time finding a local buyer, but shipping the motor without the bicycle would make it pretty easy to find a buyer for.
