I've come upon a 1991 Schwinn World Sport and I'm wondering what it is worth.

All stock, including the tires.
No rust
Paint has only a few blems.
Wheels true
Double-butted Chrome-Moly frame
FD Shimano Tourney
RD Shimano 552 SIS
shifters Shimano 552 SIS
crank Shimano 300EX 52/40 biopace
cassette Shimano Hyperglide 7-speed

$150 to $175 +/-. As described as a very clean bike, and one that fits you. This would be what I call full market price around here.

I agree with wrk101. That would be the pricing in the Cleveland Ohio area too. I have sold World Sports in good/VGC condition for $150 very quickly on Craigslist in the past.

It's a 58 and I'm a 56. I was impressed with the ride. But no, I didn't go for it due to the fit.

Those Biopace rings are crazy! Didn't notice them on the ride, but to see them from the side...
