Can you identify this bike?

Hello all,

My girlfriend won this bike at a bar raffle however, due to a heart condition, will be unable to get much use out of it. So she'd like to sell it ... but we don't know what to advertise it as. It's been re-branded by the Rock Green Light beer company, and has no identifying model tags. All we know is it's made by Shimano. I'd contact the manufacturer directly, but after going to their website they seem to only operate through dealers, not with the public, no contact info.

Can anyone here help tell us what bike this is and give a general guess as to it's value? Thanks.

You're probably right that the equivalent at Walmart or Toys 'R Us would have a $75 or so price tag- that of a disposable bike. On the other hand, how about its value to a hard-core Rock Green Light beer drinker?

OMG.....Look at that fork crown.

This seems like the road the OP should take to get some money out of this thing. No offense OP, but strictly speaking that bike is a piece of poo. Green poo.

Head badge says it's made by Chinese, must be Shimano! Looks like one of those "Next" bikes sold at walmart, probably made by Pacific Bicycles.

Give it back to the bar and ask for a case of beer instead.

You should contact Ric0h he's an expert on those types of bikes...

You might want to consider donating it to a local charity that supplies bikes to under privileged children. You can use it as a tax write off and probably get more money out of it other than selling it.

That sounds like a great idea. Otherwise, it's not worth more than about $50.

+1

If you're trying to sell a "used" bike (even if it has never been ridden), the value drops dramatically. It's like a car. Unless you're strapped for cash and need 50$, I'd just give it away to a friend (what I mean by this is a friend's kid), or a charity.
