1985 Schwinn Super Sport Frameset

A friend (BF Member) and I are trying to come to an agreement on the price of a 1985 Schwinn Super Sport frameset. We thought we'd turn to you good folks for the appraisal.

Thanks in advance,


Pics are of the complete bike, but we're only talking frame/fork/headset here (and maybe not the headset).

I really like the Tenax Schwinns from that era, and this is one of the best ones. And I really like the white color too.

All that being said, it is just a frameset, not a complete bike. So I would estimate in the $125 to $150 range. $150 is in the "got to have one, been looking for one for a while" price.

Complete, it would be about a $325 bike around here full market with all the nice 600 components. So if you pay $150 for it, you will need access to a nice group to complete it, otherwise a complete bike is a better option.

$75-100 max. Thats a Panasonic built frameset with 30.0mm JIS headset cups.

As a complete bike its worth $225-250.
