Probably not worth a ton of money, but I just love the unusual details on that thing. The rack, fenders, chainguard and seat are all kinda funky. In a good way.

Yeah, lots of nice parts. The frame is pretty run of the mill. I'd ride it if i were a girl.
Girl's bikes tend to sell for more in college towns.

You have good photos, which is a huge plus. I'd ask $99 for it and settle for $75 +/-.

This is a rare bike but I doubt you'll get what it's worth. This is a great bike I just restored a men's a few months ago. All alloy except the frame if it was bigger I would be riding it my self. The styling of the bike is very nice typical of Danish Modern. I would use this as buzz word in selling it. Due to rarity I would try for $150+ restored.

I would say worth more than a typical 3speed. Nicer level of components and consrtuction. Yet is a large mens Danish style stepthough sometimes refered to as preachers frame, which don't seem to sell well in most American markets. I would say $150-175 price wise but be prepared to come down if you want to sell it quickly.
