Very little if any value, a half step up from a Next or Huffy.

you really donít need to know every brand. Look at the super cheap crank, the cheap claw RD, the wimpy fork. It speaks for itself.

Royce Union is a very old brand that originated in 1904. Over the years, the bicycles have been manufactured in various countries including the Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Japan and Taiwan. As previously noted, they are generally considered entry level.

I've never seen an aluminum Royce Union ATB frame. The frame itself looks nicely manufactured but the components confirm its bottom of the barrel status. The derailleurs are bottom of the line Shimano Tourney. The crankset is steel with a plastic bezel. The rear hub uses a nutted axle. The rims, while aluminum, appear to U-section , as opposed to box section. The V-brakes look anemic. The pedals are resin. The seat post is traditional clamp style, as opposed to micro-adjust, and is likely steel. The suspension fork is very basic. This looks like a $125 box store bicycle.

We have quite a few around Southern Ontario. They used to be quite common.
I picked up two of them in the same week during the past summer.
They were free.
One of them was a newer mountain bike that merely aspired to be entry level and the other was a much nicer old green Japanese 3-speed that I am trying to find a home for.
