1976 AMF Evel Knievel Bike

1976 AMF Evel Knievel Bike got as a kid new for my birthday. Stored in garage always. Cleaning out the garage today, and decided to see what it's worth. Can't post any pictures until I get 10 posts.

There is a collectors market for these, but I can't help with value.

Wow, that looks like it is generally good unrestored condition. Are those the original tires?

I'm just not seeing anything that is complete in good condition with all the accessories for sale on line at the moment.

Here are a few similar bikes:

$350, less of a motorcycle look

$200 (auction), again, less of a motorcycle look

$150, really battered, non-original parts, and potentially a bent fork

$2700, gas mini-bike

I'd venture that your bike will be more than those 3 bikes above, but less than the mini-bike.

Probably on the order of $500 to $1000.

But, as with many classics, try to hit top dollar, and you have to have a lot of patience.

I think $500 + may be bit high considering it is a AMF moto not a great bike. All original and Evil Kneivel do bump price way up from the typical $150-200 AMF early BMX stuff gets. I would put the value at $400-500.
