I don't remember seeing timbuk2 bags until '90 or so. You're sure the bag's a quarter of a century old?

I know that the lady that I got it from said that it was from the early 80's its medium size black with this really strange light green lining in it.

From Timbuk2.com:

City-born and street-tough, Timbuk2 has been a San Francisco original since 1989. Stitch-by-stitch, bag-by-bag, we've built a solid reputation and a loyal following among real-life, hard-working bicycle messengers and cycling enthusiasts.

To answer the original question, I don't think an old messenger bag is worth all that much unless you find some sort of obsessed collector. I've got a few zo bags that are older than that, but they're just old bags, y'know?
