Dave, you need to show up the bike in question. While you cannot insert photos directly into this thread, you can upload them to you gallery on your profile page and we can access them from there.

All I will say is condition matters, size matters, etc., etc. It could be a $25.00 bike or much more. But anything without a photo is a guess.

Make sure to take several, at least one that captures the entire bike from the drive side, the side with the chain. And close-ups of components and frame details also helps. Does it have a serial number? On the bottom bracket? Or maybe elsewhere?

Good luck.

American Flyer was a marketing house brand for hardware and tire stores that sold a tone of bikes of all types and levels for nearly a 100 years made by several makers. So as said details and good pics will be needed to give any idea of value with no info the range is $20-2000.
