Schwinn Deluxe Breeze

I have what I believe to be a 1969 Schwinn Deluxe Breeze. I'm wondering #1 am I correct and #2 what is it worth. This bike is a fantastic condition for what I think its age is. Also is there any information anyone can give me about this bike as I may be looking to sell it. Thanks

Nice shape, probably $150 in a major mkt in season.

Edit: does it have a bendix 2-speed kickback?

That is most likely a '68 or earlier, since that was the last year Violet was offered, and it is a desirable color. I agree with the $150 estimate. If it was a 2-speed or 3-speed it would be worth a little more.

$150? Not via craigslist where I hang my bowler hat. People may ask $150, but they rarely sell. trade for $75-$110.

Ebay is different, if you have the qualifications to market it effectively:

Should have asked about the hub before giving an estimate. Now we may never know.

kickback is when you backpedal to change gears.

Considering it is a Deluxe model with a 2speed in choice color with nice original paint. $150 is not out of the question in a bigger market. To the right buyer I could see one getting a bit more close to $200. This is provided it rides nice and the 2speed bendix is in good working order both the brake and 2speed work well.
