70's Super sport...what would you offer for this bike?

I'm so new to all of this but I'm shopping around and trying to do my research about these bikes...long story short...I'm really digging the classic Chicago Super Sports!!! I really want to pull the trigger on this one because it's ready to go but wanted to know what more seasoned Schwinn collectors thought first. Thanks in advance.

I keep trying to post pics through photobucket and other ways but it's not working...


The bike is in good shape and has been recently tuned up. It's yellow and ready to go according to the seller who is asking 250 for it.

They're fairly heavy low-end bikes, but they have a certain nostalgia value. I see them near me for anywhere from $125 to $250. I'd expect one in excellent condition would be worth $150.

It all depends. As Sheldon Brown notes, it's the fillet-brazed frame that is desirable:

With my '73 sunset orange Super Sport I upgraded the wheelset, and all components, and was able to get the bike down to around 27 lbs. I've got mine listed for $375 and, although I haven't sold it yet, I expect to sell it for somewhere close to that figure. Here's an evaluation of it, with a pic: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...per-sport.html
