That looks like something somebody made in their basement on a rainy day; it does have that 70s funky-factor, however

I don't know I'd sell it. Sorta like the precursor to today's Razor scoots. You have some history there.

It's probably a gas to ride.

My grandfather had a bicycle shop in Ft Myers in the late 70's and was a lifelong horse trader (he'd buy anything he thought he could make a nickel on) so I'm a little surprised I never got one of these as a present.

I believe it has an offset rear hub, there use to be a bike just like it called an Ingo. I think they were built in the 30's and they go for high dollar now. You have to bounce on it in sequence with the rear wheel. I rode a replica once and they took a little to get use to. This looks like a production bike.

So does anyone have a value to sell this bike? I am not sure what to ask for it.

The parts don't equate to much value which seems to be a big part of anything now. Although, if it were one of the original fancy frame type that appear to be very well constructed I could see it having a following. Value wise, I have no clue, it surely has value to the right person but is a very limited market. Best bet, Ebay or The CABE.

thanks for that. I usually can google and find a value but i can find pretty much nothing as far as a sale or what it is worth. I have a buyer but we both are trying to find a fair price

I had one of these in the mid 80s they were made right here in Miami. Could go quite fast on it but there was no coasting..you always had to hop in sync.
