Good Morning and welcome to the forums. Like almost anything else bicycle values are greatly determined by condition, location and time of year. Your Frost White Schwinn in good condition might sell in a day in LA for $300 in January but may linger for weeks on craigslist in Grand Forks N.D. at $75. Also condition is very subjective, what you call good others may call fair or even poor.

Unfortunately you can't post pics until you have 10 post so go over to the general forum and say Hi on a few threads. Or you could email me a few pics and I'll get them posted here for you. BIanchiGirLL@yahoo.com

Include a good pic of the bike from the side with the chain, some closer in pics of the parts like the cranks and the derailleurs. The better the pics are the better we can help you get a value on your bikes. Pics like these




A pic like this gives us a good overview of the bike and rough idea of its size and condition.



This helps show the brand and model of components, and again the condition

...here are some listed on e-bay. Not all of the pricing is realistic, especially for a local sale.

It was called Frost White and was a 25 lb. bike with True Temper, double-butted cromoly frame. Huret derailers, Dia Compe brakes, pretty basic middle-of-the-road bike. In my town maybe $125.00 if it presents well. A nice rider, but nothing special.

New, they retailed for $300. This was my first road bike. Solid bike for the time but nothing special.

I thought about converting one into a true touring bike but the there are better options.

If it is rust free and clean with only minor paint imperfections, new or good tires and all decals still intact it would bring around 225-275 during riding season in the relatively hot Northern VA/DC market. Deduct $ if it has white brake hoods covered with gunk, a badly worn saddle or original tires and tubes. If you have cold winters where you live, it may be slow to sell this time of year.
