Windsor Ridemaster 3 Speed

I recently picked up a Windsor Ridemaster Deluxe 3 Speed in mint condition, everything original. It has the shark fin style chrome fenders, internal 3 speed hub with the twist grip shifter, and it's maroon red. Looks to me like mid-late 60's, but I was shocked to find that I really can't find anything on my this bike online, not even a picture! Does anyone have anymore info on it and a stab at what it's worth??

Does it look anything like this Windsor Winchester..?



Point is, for best information results, please include good quality pictures, to help us with information/evaluation concerns. There might be several companies, during the last century, that manufactured Windsor bicycles.

Welcome to the Bike Forums and looking forward to seeing pics.

Depends on location. Those early 3 speed twist shifters were not very good. Shimano 3 speed is worse. I. 3 speeds just don't get much response, and once you get past Raleigh, even less. Not Sturmey Archer = a lot of buyers will avoid.

In urban markets, 3 speeds can do better.


$50 to $125

That bike is a Japanese built import bike with a Shimano 3 speed from the early 70's fairly low end. These can make nice riders but not a lot of value in most market's around $125 in excellent condition.
