1988 Schwinn Prelude

Curious about the value of a 1988 Schwinn Prelude. Low miles for the age of bike, but still very functional. Reside in the St. Louis area. Thanks

The bikes size will limit the market. Around here, it would probably bring somewhere around $200. Combination of bad market and large bike though.
My bikes: '81 Trek 957, '83 Trek 720, '85 Trek 500, '85 Trek 770, '81 Merckx, , '85 Centurion Cinelli, '85 Raleigh Portage, '92 RB-2, '09 Bianchi

If you're at least 6'2" that is a nice, clean Schwinn. Oracle's FMV opinion is $275-$290.

As a resident of St. Louis and avid CL watcher, $200.00 is likely max for this bike. Large size limits audience as stated above. If you can wait until spring, you will do better.
