    Is it as good as it looks? What's it worth?

    That Giant Acapulco is an old, low end, entry level MTB/Hybrid bicycle, made of hi-tensile steel, that could most probably sell anywhere from $50-$100 on the used market.

    I wouldn't argue with Slim's assessment above, but if you're looking for more opinions, you may want to put this up in the Classic & Vintage Bikes Appraisals forum.

    It's not a Classic or Vintage bike, and cross posting isn't cool.
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    I'd expect to see that listed for about $100 around here. I'd expect it to sell for $75ish.

    I think it's very cool as a matter of fact.

    Okay, sorry on a possible cross posting. But what qualifies as vintage?

    What do you mean "good as it looks?" Have you see it in person or by the picture only?

    To me it looks very old and very basic. Maybe offer them $45 if it's in reasonable condition.
