It's trash -- send to me for disposal.

Seriously, though, once you get up to ten posts, you can post pics (avoids spam bots infiltrating the site) and ask for a full valuation. If it fits and you like vintage bikes, I'm sure the consensus will be to keep it. If you really want to sell, detailed pics will let the very knowledgeable folks on this site give you their best estimates.

According to this, it's from May 1968, and it's the 59th bike built that month: https://waterfordbikes.com/w/culture...amount-dating/

If you really want a usable valuation, condition is everything, so you'll need to show pics. You can go around to other threads for the next couple of days and post some responses or say hello in the intro thread to get your post count up.

Sale choices range from super easy to a PITA. Pricing ranges from give away to full market value. The easier the sale process, the lower the price. You decide.
