1. You're in the wrong forum. Go to the C&V appraisals forum.
2. Provide a link to photos of the bike, preferably multiple high resolution photos including at least one drive side shot (i.e. full photo of right side of bike).

I am writing nothing of the sort. My response is merely as random and devoid of content as your question. Without information, we can not offer an assessment.

Create an album in the Gallery of this site, and then we can see what you have.

A Moderator will move this thread to its proper location, Appraisals.

Hi all

Trying to find a price for this vintage bike. I have not had any luck online anywhere. Any pricing advice would be appreciated. Cannot post pics unfortunately since I am a newbie, but can send offline is possible. Has original seat, light, tires and fenders.

Thanks

Depending on date, it may have been produced for Firestone by H.P. Snyder.

They did the Firestones from ~1958-1964.

Snyder built Firestones exhibit a SE symbol on the left dropout:

This example dated as "1970's" by owner -

Moved this to What’s it Worth - Appraisals.

zekzek,

You’ll need to provide information about the bike. What is the manufacturer? Year? Components? Condition? Also a picture is really helpful. You need ten posts to do that. You can get the remaining five posts needed by replying to other threads including Introductions.

Stan

It is a pretty bike, and overall appears to be in excellent condition (plus or minus some minimal tuning).

However, it appears to be a very low quality build overall.

I'd put your value at around $50 to $80 or so.

The subject bicycle is 1970s based on the presence of a BMA/6 certification sticker. My guess would be circa 1973. Even though the condition appears very good, typically these bicycles have low value. They're the type of bicycle you find at garage sales with $20 price tags. Selective photo assist...
