Fair Mkt value range on 70 Schw. Continental

Can someone provide me with a rough idea of the fair market value range of my completely functional and clean 1970 Schwinn Continental 10 speed ? Thanks.

I picked one up for $.50 and sold it for $100. Ebay will most likely get you the best selling price. Depending on your local market of course.Yard sale $20 maybe $30

I sold a mechanically very good, but cosmetically fair '76 Continental for $110 on CL last year. Electro-forged Schwinns are like Hillary Clinton; people either love 'em or hate 'em. The trick is to buy them from the latter and sell them to the former.

Mikes right. And in your case, to sell for full potential value, you'll need to find a buyer looking for a classic Schwinn that is ready to ride.

I picked up this '73 on SF Bay CL a while back for $26. Same color as my old Sting Ray.
