Schwinn Twinn

Ladies and Gentlemen,
My wife and I have a Schwinn Twinn two-speed coaster. Based upon the serial number, the frame was made in 1968 - and my wife says that she bought the bike new about that time. The bike was last ridden in the early 1990s, and has been stored in our garden shed since 1994. The rubber is, of course, completely gone, chrome parts are rusted and pitted, the paint (blue) is grimy, but otherwise I'd rate it fair-good. I'd like to sell it as-is to someone interested in restoring it, but am at a loss to determine a fair value. I'm located in SE Pennsylvania, north of Philly.

John

They really aren't worth much, and buyers want them in pristine condition. Put it up on Craigslist locally and consider offers.

Sorry, but CraigsList doesn't allow "offers". It'll get flagged. Use eBay or some other for auction style selling.
