Windsor SunTour bike

Hello, I'm trying to find out how much to sell my Windsor bike for. From the serial # it looks to be made in 1972. Its in good shape. Needs new tires, rims are fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello lindaann Welcome to the forums!!! Could you tell us more about the bike? Is there any kind of sticker that says what kind of tubing it's made from? Is there any names on the brakes? Derailleurs? Cranks/pedals?

Do you have any pics? Some good pics like this will really help us. You should be able to upload pics to your album and then we can see them but you need 10 over two days to be able to actually post them

Suntour made parts at all price levels, from really basic to something special, and everything in between. Brand of bike + Suntour is really not enough to go on. And then there is location. In some markets, older bikes have minimal value unless they are something special. In other markets, they can have good value.

Another thing(s) which can affect value is the size of the frame and the style of frame. Post up some photos to the gallery if you can.

What is the Serial Number and where is it located?

Please help us help you?

Attempt to upload pictures of the Drive Side of your Windsor, post that you've done so, and someone will snag them from the "Recent" feed and post them to this thread.

...I've never actually seen a Windsor International in person, but judging from the components and the condition, it's not worth a whole lot. Maybe 50-100 dollars to someone looking for a good project bike. AFAIK, it has no collector value. But it would make good transportation bike with the investment of a few days taking it apart, cleaning everything, re-lubricating all the greasy stuff, and new rubber, bar tape, maybe cables, brake hoods, etc. It was not especially high end when new, so it's not something that will command a whole lot of money in the used marketplace.

Yes, this was a lower-tier model as evidenced by the lack of an integral derailer hanger and the swaged crankset. The frame might be hi-tensile steel also, but I have nothing to base that assumption on other than the overall component group, which would be typical on a bike with a Hi-Ten frameset.

All of this is not to disparage the bicycle. It might make someone very happy, happy to get a vintage bicycle in decent condition. It will take quite a bit of attention to get it shipshape, but it would be worth doing.

I'd place the value at maybe $125.00 in an average market.

It might just be the angle of the photo, but it appears that the fork might be bent -- if so, the only value is the parts, and, unfortunately, they are good, solid parts, but are not high end or overy desirable on the vintage market, so your local co-op might be able to use them, but selling them is not going to net you very much.

As-is probably $25.

The fork definately pushed back, that is probably correctable. The front derailleur is damaged. The chain and freewheel look lightly used

If that is something you can handle, cleaned and bearings serviced, Cables may be ok, after all that $125 maybe.
