85 Schwinn High Sierra

There are two 1985 Schwinn High Sierras for sale near me. Both are black, & they are the same size. The bike would be a campus cruiser for my daughter. Both appear original & in good shape for their age. What would be considered a good price for these bikes? Here are pics of one of them:

I recently paid $40 for a Ď86 Sierra for my daughter. Needed $30 parts, but I had them in inventory.

Depends on market in your area. This is probably on the low side nationwide.

I would happily pay $100 for this bike and if the pedals are Suntour XCIIs, more. The XCII pedals are worth $100 to $150 in that condition. IMHO MTBs from that era are a bargain. Iíve got four 1980s MTBs I just bought in the truck right now (none a High Sierra but I tried). I typically find them in the $50 to $100 range, under appreciated right now, bullet proof, and not yet a theft magnet.
