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.

I don't think they are really "collectible" but they are very cool and desireable for the person wanting a more traditional commuter bike. Specialized also did not sell loads of them. So they have good value for older bikes.

I did a quick Google search and found a few 1995 Specialized Globes that had sold for about 225. It looks like 1995 was the first year for that model. I have a 1998 Specialized Globe A1, completely different bike, 24 speed, front/rear V brakes, suspension seat post and handle bars, etc. Great bike, a little heavy but I still use it as my around town bike. You have a very nice gift for your great-niece.
