My neighbor left this for grabs and I'm going to donate it to a charity. Anyone have any idea what the value is so that the charity can get a fair price? It was made by Magnet in the Netherlands. The pedals and handlebars fold, but not the frame.
It's a beautifully unusual bike in terms of frame geometry and retro components. Looks like the sort of thing a collector might like but would leave the greater populace a little cold. I like it a lot especially the inverted headset and hubcap-style chain-ring cover.
Hard to say of it's worth - it's not a make I've come across before - why don't you do a nice write up for it on eBay and see what it gets? If it doesn't raise any interest you can always cancel the auction.
I donated it to a local charity, but wanted to help them appraise it. It is cool though. I tuned it up before riding it over. Bit of a tank, but fun to ride. Even the light set works after all this time, and the rear light is on a wing. It's high modernist in design, must be from the late 50s.
Besides, if you don't know the value, I doubt anyone else out there does!
