Two different questions here, what is it worth? and what can I get for it at a garage sale? You really cannot get what it is worth at a garage sale. Without pics, the Columbias I grew up with were bottom end, the bikes were sold at discount stores.

Garage sale? $25.

Agree with others... they are really low end sub-division cruisers. If you need something for putzing around a sub at low speed, then $25 it is, but beware cost for new tires, cables, etc. The Schwinn equivalents from same era were quite a bit better, but still not what you could buy today on the 'net for $250 or so. The newer items are actually quite ridable in an around town sense. Stepping up for a real bike, you can regularly find a nice Santana on ebay for under a $1,000 or a decent Burley or whatnot.
