    Classic Schwinn Value?

    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.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    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.

    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.
