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

We need to see pictures of the drive-train side of the bike, close-ups of the seat cluster, crank, gears, brakes, etc.

Without pictures it turns into a sight-unseen bid war. Or worse, a trollery of snark.

There was no World Sport until '78 so you're off by at least a decade. Pictures as described above will be required for any accurate valuation (so far I'm thinking ~$100, these were low-end bikes made in China). Also for dating purposes please post clear close-up pics of the frame serial number and the 4-digit number stamped in the headbadge.

In 1986 the World Sport was in the lower level of the Schwinn road bike family. In my area, in excellent shape, that is a $150ish bike.

But, without pictures, that is just a shot in the dark.
