Classic Schwinn Value?
 
2 Attachment(s)
I found this old (probably close to 30 years old) Schwinn Traveler road bike that was my moms, it looks like its still in great shape. I bet she only put 100 miles on it. Is it worth anything? I'll upload some photos.

This was a fairly good bike in it's day and way,way better than a
lot of new ones today IMO. Steel lugged frame and sidepull brakes
make it an Ideal machine to update with new bars,fenders, and saddle.

But don't expect to make a killing if you sell it. ;)

You should check the vintage forum for a more informed answer but I doubt it has any collector value. My advice is to injoy it for what it is.

What do you think I could get for it on craigslist?

Maybe $50 in the current condition. It's a small bike, so your pool of customers is limited.

Depends on your location, too.

I'm thinking that $50.00 is probably realistic. Old road bikes are a dime a dozen.
