On the 3 speed hub should be a code with the month and year- my guess before 1974

Alot like a Sports but with 27: wheels.
Based on decal information on Kurt Kaminer's site, it appears to be 1971 or 72. Decals, white tail, seat, chain guard, all seem to me to fit in that date...

I would go on the assumption that this is a home made solution that you acquired somewhere?

I don't see the rusty chain or things like cables being the issue.
What I do see though is a fairly...

I believe that the bike is a UO18 which would have been supplied with a pump. I know that the UO8 that I bought in 1972 had a pump that came with the bike. I forget the brand name of the pump. A...

OK. Y'all are right. $300 is a little optimistic price for that. But, where I'm from people always negotiate & haggle over used bike price. And, you can never ask more than asking price. So, around...

It doesn't look to have been painted. As it sits, the value would be about $75 here in north NJ. But not at present. The market here is stone dead until the storm passes.
