Around $50...they were made by Huffy from low-tensile steel and originally came equipped with mag wheels.

Oh wow, just my size. In that case, yeah, I'd say about $50 is about right.

$50 on eBay...I think $40 is a fair offer.

I have a 60th Anniversary one: frame alone was $2,200.

That one looks like mid-late 70s.
