Huffy Bluebeard muscle bike

This Huffy Bluebeard was donated to our charity. Our all-volunteer organization sells bikes like this to help pay our expenses. Check us out by googling "R Community Bikes". We would like to know the value of this bike. The donor cleaned it up nicely. It has normal paint scrapes. I know it's a Huffy, but I do have a potential buyer. Thanks in advance.

Well that's just about the coolest Huffy ever, isn't it? Where I am, I see stick-shift Schwinns in that condition offered for $300+, but many of them languish on Craigslist for months before they disappear. Sold? Seller gave up? I don't know.

Poking around the interwebs, I see a few Bluebeards for sale around the country from $225-300, but they seem to be languishing at that price. Maybe it's a matter of finding the right buyer... somebody who will pay a premium for the "cool factor" in spite of the fact it's a Huffy.

I specialize in moderate-length nonanswers. Sorry! Maybe it helped a little?

I would guess around $200 to the right buyer. But understand it could take a while to sell likely several months in most markets.

+1. If you want to move it quicker, lower the price... at 100$ I suspect it will grow legs and walk outta the shop fast. $200 is likely top of most local markets. Nice looking Huffy, BTW.
