Schwinn Hollywood

My boss gave me two bikes that he claims to be classic bikes and may be worth something. One is in perfect condition and I'm keeping for my daughter. The other is a bit rough but he claims if restored it would be worth "some money".
I'm not really into restoration so I'm thinking of selling it as is. Can anyone give me an idea of what I should I ask for on craigslist? I'm in the chicagoland west burbs.

$25 if you want it gone. $50 if you want to make "some money".

If the vinyl on the seat is in good shape, that will probably fetch $30

I would say $50-75 to the right buyer more of an interesting decor piece than anything else, not worth much as bike or collectors item.

Do you know if that one has the two speed "kickback" rear hub? My big sister's Hollywood had one, back in the early 70s. Those hubs go for about $50 on eBay. And as oddjob points out, that old saddle (if completely untorn) is worth a little bit too.

That bike brings back good 70's memories of jumping ramps, riding wheelies, and laying down some serious skid marks.

It is a one speed bike (one red band on the back hub). The two speed kickback has three red band on the back hub (or yellow).

Thanks for the info. I'll put a sign on our next neighborhood garage sale and put an add on craigslist.
I don't have any interest in restoring and right now it's only taking space in my garage.
