Orange swing bike

My father has an orange swing bike that he has had since he was a child. He wants to sell it but we cannot find any information on what it is worth or how to tell what year it is. We live on utah and the only ones we can find to compare prices are "custom built" swing bikes. If anyone has any knowledge on them or knows where to locate such knowledge and would be willing to help me out, it would be very much appreciated. I tried to post a picture but it will not let me.

Not sure how many people here are knowledgeable about this sort of thing...I suspect you might be better off checking a more focused group. Something with greater focus on kids bikes. Old roads maybe?

we don't allow links to classified ads, so I had to take that out of your post. AFAIK, that swingbike was the only commercially available swing bike. They aren't that rare. I have attached your pics, sorry I was also too lazy to rotate.

Man, I had that same exact bike, it was stolen twice recovered once. I loved mine and wish I had one in my collection. I just can't pay a ton of money for one ( But I love to horse trade lol ). The most challenging thing was trying to ride a wheelie while it was unhinged lol.
