1976 Emory Value

I am turning to you guys, because i have no idea where to look. My friend has a custom 1976 Emory bike and he can't ride it anymore. Does anyone know the value of this bike or where we might be able to sell it. Its been parked in shed for MANY years, why the tires are flat. Sending pics......Thanks for any help.

I don't think a welded bike with a one piece crank/chainwheel combo is going to be worth much at all. Similar to a Huffy. Like $20.

And that's also probably much newer than 1976- the unicrown fork wasn't common until after the mid-1980s.

Sorry.

^ Maybe even less - note that the seat tube doesn't appear to have been centered at the BB shell when they welded it up

The head badge says "Made by Robot in Jacksonville Florida" - So, that's got to make it worth at least $100 right there. Plus, if you could somehow transport it to the Atlanta/Decatur area somebody from Emory University might give you $150 for it.

The Emory U plan sounds solid, that's your best bet for maximizing resale value. Looking at those welds, I'd say the robot that built your frame was drunk.

I would say the head badge is nicest part of the bike. Pretty heavy low end steel bike from the 80's Robot head badge and seat tube decal place it as 86/87. While interesting a bit of American bike history not worth a lot of money $75-100 as collector to the right buyer as just a bike to ride most markets $50.

That might be deliberate; trying to get an optimal chainline with an off-the-shelf BB housing and crankset. Still doesn't make it "right", though, and would tend to prove the level of cheapness.....
