Sekine 21" value thoughts

That really is a nice old Herc. I love seeing all the old bikes here. Thats Sears Bike is Cool too. I remember seeing that Bike in the christmas catalog as a kid. Sears allways had some bikes that did something different than the norm in the early 70's. Nice eye candy as a kid though. what side crak is twisted. I have a left side crank arm from a Penny's formost that is a steel cotter crank alot like the herc I would think. You can have it for shipping.



I had a nice score. Ive been watching this bike for 3 weeks online at a local online auction service. I knew it was a red Sekine with a smaller frame and it didnt look too boogered up by the picture in the ad. I won at $40 and picked it up today. I am pretty sure it is a 21" SHS with the Shimano Titlist front & rear derailiuers and the shimano tourney brakes. It was stored in the basement most of its life. In good shape but I noticed that someone scratched their intitials in the down tube. and it has some road scars as it was ridden. I am going to clean it all up, over haul it, new seat and tape and re cable it. Not nice enough for me to keep but I think it will bring some attention locally. any thoughts as to what it should sell for? (i am willing to ship if someone is interested in this.)



I can get some better pics too.

What is material of construction of frame? High ten steel, or something better? Around here, a high ten bike, with turkey levers, alloy rims, etc., in ready to ride condition is about $100 to $120. Same thing with a better frame gets you in the $150 to $175 range. Looks like a steel seat post.
