Austro-Daimler A-D ES

I've been doing a lot of hunting for frames to use for fixed gears and stumbled on this thing. Once I spent some time cleaning it up and getting it riding I couldn't bring myself to tear it up. It's beautiful! What's this thing worth? It's got a ton of the original parts, including the seat which is in very good condition.

First...welcome to Bike Forums...you will find the "experts" here to be truly that...expert!

Beautiful bike...very glad you did not do the fixie thing to it...

what is worth is going to be, to some extent, where you are located. In the Atlanta market that I am in, in current riding condition, you might get $250-300 for it...

Thanks! I've lurked these boards for years but never posted. I knew I'd find some answers on this beauty. When I got under the dirt and grime caked on this thing and saw how good of shape it was still in and how much of it is origional I was blown away. Not a great fit for me, hopefully I can find it a good home. If anyone has any other info on it, let me know. From what I've found on google it looks like a 76/77?

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

PLEASE check to make sure that the seat post is fully inserted into the clamp that is holding the seat on.

It looks like it is only partially inserted - and I doubt you're looking for a DIY colonoscopy (especially one missing both the scope and doctor).
