    Vintage Schwinn Eagle Q

    I found this Shimano Eagle Q in my Grandma's garage yesterday. Does anybody know If this derailleur is rare? It is in pretty good condition. What do you guys think it is worth?

    They might be worth $5 in a bike store junk box. Came on low end department store bikes in the late 60s early 1970s. Roger

    The Eagle was a low end mid-seventies replacement for the Shimano Lark (the Eagle had a steel guard to protect the derailleur if the bike fell over on its drive side; the Lark didn't).

    According to Frank Berto, in The Dancing Chain, the 1974 Shimano rear derailleur line-up had seven different price/quality levels. From the top, the rear derailleur names were Crane, Titlist, Tourney, 500, Eagle, Eagle SPO, and Lark.
