Schwinn Collegiate

I just picked this Collegiate at a garage sale and would appreciate your estimate of a asking price once I have completed a probably two day clean up and restoration. The speedo is not working and it feels like a broken cable. Based on the serial number I assume it's a 1972 build date. Unfortunatly I have way too many bikes and can't keep this one. Your thoughts? Thanks in advance...

Based on the color and equipment it could be a 1970 through 1973 model. The number on the bottom bracket shell isn't a serial number, it is likely some type of anti-theft registration number. The serial number will be on the LH dropout (early '70) or base of the headtube (mid-'70 and later). Ask for $100, take $75.

Thanks for your reply. The serial number on the head tube has met with a grinder so it might have been liberated at one point. The nice old couple I bought it from have owned it for 30 years.
