Monark Flyg Stål Road Bicycle

Hello,

I have a vintage Monark Flygstal bicycle and, given that fact that I am moving across the country and have a few other bikes, I am looking to part with it. I am not a bike expert by any means, just an enthusiast of vintage bicycles and riding, so I will do my best via pictures to show you the bike. From the research I've done, I really haven't found much information on these bikes, so any help would be appreciated.



From what I can gather the crankset appears to be a "Competition Stronglight Marque Deposee"...I guess that's what I'm most curious about. It could be worthless for all I know, but, like I said, I'm fairly ignorant. The sprocket reads 'Brevete SGD'.

That's a really interesting bike. Late 60's or early 70's. The crank/chainrings are nice. Stronglight made a nice cottered crank back then. Frame looks good quality too. You don't see many Monarks. Condition is really rough. Value as it sits, probably in the $100-125 range.

looks early to mid 1960's. this is a quality model. it may be a model 319.

the forum has an extensive thread on Swedish bicycles here:
