What is this worth?

It was gifted to me as a child by my grandparents back in the early 80s.

I'm guessing around $20 depending if it has 12,16 or 20 inch wheels. But knowing what it is helps. Generally childrens bikes have little to no value to them

*Edit* Air up the tires and then clean it as best you can and drop it off at GoodWill or the Salvation Army

I don't know that anyone would give you much for this. IMHO, any value this bike would have at all would be sentimental. If I had a bike that my grandparents gave me as a child, I would get my joy by passing it along to my grandchildren. A little cleaning, lubrication and probably new tubes, this would be good for a kid to ride around the block when they come to visit you and hopefully give you a warm fuzzy.

Nor an easy bike to find a market for. Real present value is darn close to zero. I am not saying that to offend anyone. I am, however, basing my opinion on experience. Bikes, such as the one presented by the OP, are offered to Bicycles for Humanity frequently but B4H does not want them. There is no market for those small used bikes. Though it grieves me to admit it, more often than not, small bikes like the one in question are sold as scrap meta.

Do you know what model and year of manufacture it is? Being a step through usually means worth less than the boys model. It looks to be good shape but neglected condition.

The boys model of Stingray can draw some coin if a nostalgic moment happens to a person wanting to have their “Rose Bud” time of life remembered.

I would get some Pledge wax to clean and a few drops of oil here, air up the tires, and presto, it increases the value and one has a beautiful youth beach cruiser.
