    1984 Free Spirit Sears and Roebuck & Co. Bike worth?

    In 1984 I received a Free Spirit Sears and Roebuck & Co. bike for Christmas. It has never been restored with the original Sears and Roebuck sticker, seat, handle bars, etc. It has a number on the side of the bar that holds the handlebars: 502479880. There was another number on the other side but it was hard to see. There is also a number on the sticker 0984. I am having trouble uploading more photos but will keep trying. I was offered $500 as is. Is that reasonable?

    If I were you, I'd take that $500 offer in a nanosecond. That's about $400 more than they're selling for on ebay.

    What Scooper said! Take that money and laugh all the way to the bank.

    Whoever offered you that is a moron. Take his money and RUN!!

    (Looks like a single speed women's cruiser in somewhat rough shape? I'd say value is around 20 bucks).

    Could also be a thief setting up the OP for a burglary or mugging. $500 is not a real offer.

    He's probably busy getting the bike boxed up to ship to a nice man in Nigeria.
