10 speed english racer

40 year old 10 speed English Racer


This ad has been on cl for a week or two now. I have no idea what the bike is or what it is worth. I dont "need" a bike now for anything, but if it was a good deal on a nice bike id be interested as I really would like a winter restoration project. Anyone know what the bike is or have other info on it? Is is worth it? Is it basically a scam???

Thanks

It's an old roached-out Schwinn Continental. $40 as-is. No doubt it needs $150-$200 worth of work to be worth $75.

I would say $50 in value and $20 of that is for the rack.

The bike is a rusted out piece of junk.
