I got this bike and a Schwinn Frontier today. from what I have found out so far it is from around 1985 and the model is ATB. The back wheel is on the Schwinn. Dose the ATB have any value, I don't have the seat or seat post.

Take the back wheel off the Schwinn now if good the dimpled holed wheels sets are worth $200-400

I could be wrong but I believe you have a Mongoose ladyís framed bike. The model name likely isnít ATB

It is a Mongoose , here is a link to a catalog with the details. I can get more pics if anyone lets me know what parts you want to see. The bike had decals at one time but they are gone now.

I somehow thought you were looking for help identifying it, I must have missed the part where you told us the brand and model.

Such a cool bike. Being a ladies frame hurts it value wise, but that thing is stacked with great components.

id be tempted to clean/polish it up and run it as a city bike myself .

For a minute I thought you might have a rare gem like the Kos Kruiser. Alas, it does appear to be circa 1985 which is a couple of years after Mongoose’s peak value (70s thru ‘83). Guessing it is merely a curiosity with very little value.

For all that it's a ladies' model, it seems like a pretty nice bike. Nice tubing, nice features and components. Maybe it's not collectible but I hope it's not worthless.

I put the back wheel back on it and a seat and post from a parts bike and took a short ride today, still needs a back tire and some tuning and the back shift cable is stuck. Not sure what I will do with it.

IMO.......reasonable value as a part out or complete. Parts are probably quite valuable to a buyer holding a mens frame.

'85 'Goose with a biplane fork. Mix of components, but it has that fetching chrome frame. I sold it for $250 a few years ago.

I would agree for selling parted it's worth more very conservative $100 for the wheels $40 for the pedals $50 for cranks and rings. $50 for the bas and stem, $35 for the brakes and $75 for the shift group. That sad hate to see this true American classic parted if mine I would keep this one.
