I hipe I was successful in posting the images. Everyhting on the bike is free of rust or corrosion and even the rubber is soft. The brakes and shifter work smoothly and I am told the bike has been kept indoors since it was new. Any help with its value would be apprceated. Thanks a whole lot.

Whether the tires look dry-rotted or not, they are probably toast. I certainly wouldn't want to trust them going downhill at 40 mph! For a little ride around the neighborhood, maybe.

Ditto what was said previously about maintenance. Even if it was never used it would still require cleaning and greasing and possibly new cables if they are corroded at all.

The thing that makes this somewhat attractive is that I can't imagine them coming up very often. This is the first one I've seen.
