1976 Huffy Starstreak Dragster

Hello everyone. I was hoping someone might be familiar with this bicycle. My grandmother (bless her heart) never got rid of ANYTHING, and we are in the process of going through the 7 storage's she has amassed over the last 20 years. This bike belonged to my Uncle, and with as much digging as I have done on the internet, all I seem to be able to find is mention of it in different forums and sites- but never with a monetary value. The most I have found was "one sold on ebay recently for a pretty penny." I know value is relative, but a scale-able ballpark would be so very appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and opinion. Other relevant information I am aware of is that even though it is often referred to or described as an Evel Knievel bike it is not actually tied to him in any way. It was a Sears exclusive and cost around $80 when my Uncle bought it in 1976.

Being a Huffy, even one in pristine shape, mechanically this bike is worth very little, except for the collectibility of the plastic body parts; that is where about 90% of the value is going to reside.

One sold on Ebay a year ago for $280. Sounds about right. Just gotta find the right buyer.

JC Penney sold them back in the day.

Not as cool as the real AMF Evel Knievel bikes which seem to go for $500-600, but still a pretty cool bike. Based on the recent sale prices I have seen for similar bikes I would say $200-250 or so in value.
