Vintage Roadmaster Bike

Bought this bike off the original owner and all I know is she said it was from the early 60's, this bike is ALL original including tires, and was stored inside a indoor climate controlled storage unit, if I could get more help on this bike it would be very much appreciated (what exact year, value, rarity of bike), I paid $20 for it. Thanks!

Roadmaster Discoverer
Serial # R548583
Bendix equipped

I can try to get more pics loaded

Being a step-through frame (men's frames are more valuable) I would put the value somewhere between $75 and $125.

IMHO, in the Atlanta market, this bike would not bring a lot. Several things to consider: (1) Roadmaster is not the strongest brand name, (2) it is a mixte / step through frame and (3) that style. That being said, if you are where you have some rail trails and/or greenways...that bike will ride sweet on those! For the $20 you spent...clean it up, fix it up (even with original rubber, I might put new tires on it...and definitely new tubes) and then ride it on Sundays!

It does need a new front tire and tube (doesn't hold air and the rear holds air but is in rough shape, the research I've done, it seems this bike could be a 1963 model, any confirmation on that? Thanks again
