$50 +/- Looks like Shipmano Exage Sport. Any information on the frame tubing? Is that a broken spoke on the front wheel?

Not much value here. Need to be selective, as Goodwills and other thrift stores tend to be full of low end stuff with a rare gem.

If you want to do a light refurbish, get some used tires, cheap China bar tape, clean, and adjust. Remove fenders, and you could get $100 for it. Dig any deeper and it will become a time and $$ suck.

Or just air up the tires, and sell as a project. You might be able to get $50 for it with minimal work and no $$.

I've gone from buying and selling 50 to 75 bikes a year, to 15 bikes a year, making just as much or more. The secret, moving UP in quality. One high quality bike purchased at $400 could yield the same profit as ten lower end bikes. And it has the advantage of just one sale versus ten, takes up less room, uses a lot less consumables, and takes 1/10 the time to refurbish. Took me years to learn this simple lesson (slow learner).

I'll still pick up low end stuff, if the price is right. I will donate all of those.

I think it is the lower right fender support.

It'll be a pain to straighten, but you may be able to do it if you remove the entire wire, and carefully work it with a hammer and anvil.

These are probably the pinch bolts.

Hmmm...

Here are the wire stays (with bolts).

But that is also indicative of the issues with this kind of restoration. You end up buying a kit of 4 stays for 1/4 the value of the whole bike.

Concord was a trademark of Cycle & Supply Company, Columbus, Ohio.

They contracted several different manufacturers to make their bicycles. The quality varied with manufacturer and model.

The serial number may help to determine the manufacturer.
