AMF Roadmaster value question

Ok so I am looking for my next project, as some of you may know I rebuild and work on bikes (hints my forum name) however i lack knowledge when it comes to value on these older bikes. From my understanding amf was a cheap low quality department store bike? Here is what i am looking at. Vintage AMF Roadmaster Bicycle 26 Cruiser
So my question. Is it worth 50? I offered 25 he came back with 35. And i will probably put that much in it if i buy it.
Thanks in advance.

No real upside value on this one the Unisex strait pipe preachers frame pretty much kills any value. It's worth about the asking price or maybe less decent tires and full survice likely needed would cost more than it's worth.

Unless you want it for personal use I wouldn't go near it.

Hey thanks for the advice. Very helpful. Honestly what i see around is riders go for the look. Most average riders are not concerned with brand of bike or quality. I guess looks overtake quality. But i could be wrong. Point taken. Still lookin.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

Similar bikes in similar condition are going for $60 and up, depending on where the bike is being sold and what condition yours is in.
