1971 Super Sport Value

my wife wants my old bike gone from the garage.
1971 Schwinn Super Sport
I think it is all original except for tape and cabling
works fine. Paint is rough.
I can post pictures if I can figure out how

Well, if you search youll get a bunch of threads on these bikes. Idk lately, but 5 or so years ago when prices were higher for C&V all around, I sold my late-71-constructed-sold-in-1972 green Super Sport for $180.

That was to someone one who knew what it was, how it was fillet-brazed, etc, and it only needed new tires.
These days if I recall from more recent posts about them Id bet on closer to $100 than $200.

I've seen them in very good condition list locally for around $200 but they do stick around CL for a while at that price. I'd say in rough condition--and in the UP--it's worth closer to $150 and maybe even less. They're nice bikes. I'd like to find one my size one of these days.

Depending on how rough the paint is, it could be $25 to $50.
