    Hello, I believe i have a 1898 Pope Columbia Model 51 ( Chain-less drive).
    The tires are not original. But everything else appears to be. The Seat leather is fairly dry, but otherwise everything is in working condition and present. I am interested in selling this bicycle. I have would appreciate any estimates on it worth?
    Your help and interest is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Jody

    Jody, I would check Copake Auction for prices. Their annual antique bicycle auction results are posted online and will give you an idea what to expect.

    who checks auction reseults to get an idea of value? if you expect auctions prices, bring it to auction and get ready to be disappointed at what you actually end up with in your pocket!

    Very nice survivor. Is this a family heirloom? Some nice cream or white tires, crepe paper and bunting it would look great in a 4th of July parade!!

    I'd take it for a ride but I don't think I'd look good in a corset and bustle.:p That third parts lot could probably be worth ten times the price if you just layed it out like taht in any of the worlds modern art museums!

    The Bicycle craze got rid of the corset and bustle. It brought in the suffragette movement....
