    These old cruiser type bikes aren't worth a ton but this one has an IGH hub with a coaster brake which in my opinion is pretty cool and a lot better than the 5-speed derailer models. $50-100 on craigslist. If you tried at $150 it would sit but maybe sell eventually.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
