A bicycle is worth whatever a willing seller and a willing buyer can agree on.

I'm thinking the base value for any bike with 27 x 1 1/4 tires is around $50.00. That's an easy local sale - no packing or shipping cost, clear out the garage, go out for dinner - done.

I'm not familiar with a Sanwa Champion 400, it might have some kind of nostalgic or collector value, (I doubt it). But even if it does, however, here's the thing. You have to find somebody who wants specifically a Sanwa Champion 400 bicycle to realize the nostalgic or collector value. Then you'll probably have to add a significant packing and shipping cost.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
