Le Tour Schwinn

Serial # 1A00257 27" I think it is 1981. Can you tell me the value?

That is very likely true. Do the appearance and componentry match the '81 catalog page?



What is the 4-digit number stamped in the headbadge?

Can you tell me the value?
Without pictures I'd say $25.

Some pics and details would help yet prices on Le Tour's a pretty consistent $75-100 slightly rough working $125-150 very good and $200-225 super nice ready to ride These are pretty good basic bikes nice riders I road one for a year or so as rider yet nothing special but solid well built classic 10 speeds.
