    Please don't take this the wrong way, but hear me out.

    How about a pic with another one of our favorites on here - Sheldon, Grant, & Jobst. I can imagine them thinking, I can't believe another 15 page thread on bikeforums.

    I think some sellers mean well when they think they know how to pack a bike, but really have no clue. I always point them to a couple threads on here which contain great instructions. I would keep...

    Those are nice bikes. Both bikes probably need a full overhaul, new tires, & chains. Are you looking to do this yourself or do you want a shop to do it? Shop will probably cost $200+ each to get...

    Around here that bike would sell for $120. For $265, you should be able to get a better bike.

    Sell as is to someone. Fixing it up will cost you what you would gain in the selling price. In the shape it is in I think around $50 is more realistic.

    I picked up a couple mid-60's versions of these a little while ago. They were too small for me so I moved them on, but very cool bikes.

    If you like this style of bike, get it. That bike doesn't need to be painted.
