Vintage Super Deluxe AMF Hercules Mint condition

Hi there:

I found this bike in my grandmother's garage. It is not clear when she got it, but probably the 60s. I suspect it is Super Deluxe AMF Hercules. What would be the right price to sell it, and should I try selling it on CL or Ebay? I am based in the Bay Area (Berkeley). Thank you so much for your help!

-Was in a garage for 45+ years
-Really beautiful, really clean, works, from the 60s
-Bike is made in England
-3 speed with sturmey archer internal shifting.
-Even the tires are original (Made in England).
-Original pedals white and seat white and hand grips white
-Dynamo Light for front and rear!!
-Medium frame











- Thanks!
Max

Well it's a fairly low end step through 3 speed so not a whole lot of value. In just fair to good condition as shown only about $150 in a hot market like the bay area most other markets $100 or so.

I see bikes like this all the time being offered in my local CL for a few hundred bucks and I see them again and again and again. A lot of CL sellers think that just because something is old, it is worth a lot.

Depending on where you live, you'd be lucky to get $100 for that bike. Maybe more in a big city but this is not a particularly desirable brand.
