Need information about my 1995 Globe
Hi, I'm not much of a cyclist anymore and have had my beautiful Globe collecting dust in the garage for the last few years. I'm thinking of handing it down to my great-niece who is 10 years old, and who I think would love it (especially as her bike was stolen last summer). I bought it new in 1995; it has the "denim" frame with yellow fenders, a generator, rear wheel lock (with a key!) 7 gears, front hand brakes and rear coaster brakes, rack on the rear fender and a very cool bell. I took it to a local bike shop for new tires and tubes (the old white walls are toast) and a tune up and cleaning, and the guys there were very excited about it. No one could tell me anything about value though someone said something about it being collectible. I would like to have as much information to pass on as possible and I ask because an old thread from this site showed up when I Googled Specialized Globe.
I appreciate any useful information.
