Sears tote cycle

I recently came into a 1960 Sears tote cycle. I am wondering what it's worth

I also have a Sears Tote Cycle and I store it in the garden. Based on my own experience, one would be lucky to get anything for the bike that I have, even though it is complete and original.

Well, you should probably ask on the "folding bikes" subforum. For most of us, these bikes are more curiosities than 'real bikes'.

The market for folding bikes other than Raleigh 20's is crummy. Yours is probably worth $50 to $100.

I'd think $50 is high. It's not complete and not generally desirable.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

You will probably get more than you would for a Sears Tote.
