    Late 60's, probably 68 or 69. Long framed version of the AMF. The condition is great, just a single speed bike. Multi speed bikes are what usual sell better. Although, I would love to have this one, just probably couldn't afford it right now.

    Patience, its only worth what someone is willing to pay. But, most people probably would pay about $100 give or take. Its unique, complete, rare, but not incredibily valueable. As said earlier, this is really a base model other than that sissy bar.

    Hey Doc. There is a bike like this one but a 3 speed and no tall sissy bar on craigslist listed for 150.00 and hasn't sold in over a week. I can supply the link if you need it. I'm leaning towards the 150.00 to 175.00 range. It's got 2 or 3 things going for it. 1. long frame 2. sissy bar 3. condition. I might be interested if we could work something out. I'll pm you and we can go from there. Kenny.
