Bought this many years ago, children are grow and it's time to down size.

Thank you.

Not so much a collectible as a novelty low end bike. The gen set and enclosed chain make it kind of cool. I'd guess $35-$75, depending on season and your location.

My experience suggests that the small wheel bicycles, folding bikes and similar mounts have minimal collectable value. I let this BSA folding bike...



...go for ten bucks on Ebay and it got only one bid. My guess is the buyer, an honourable fellow, was not all that happy that his ten dollar bid won him a bike that cost close to $80.00 for shipping.

These ones I gave away...



Your best bet would be to ensure that the bike is in good running condition and clean. Placed on Craigslist, or some similar on-line selling resource, might fetch you up to a hundred dollars, assuming you present it well and can exercise patience, as you wait for the right buyer to come along. Some of the informatin contained in Vintage Bicycle Value might also help you market the bicycle.

It was originally a shopping bike from Japan.. there is a registration number from Yamaguchi prefecture. New it would have sold for about $100 dollars. I have no idea what you could get for them in the States.

Where is this bike? (I might know of a buyer, if the bike is close to them.)
I assume it is a single spped?
