    Gazelle USA said the serial number dates this bike to 1905. We found it at an estate sale from a family w/Chinese decent. Can you point me in the direction of someone who can help us appraise and sell this bike?
    Thanks is advance!

    Looks like a 1950’s copy of a Raleigh

    1960’s, possibly early 70’s. Speak with original owners or their offspring.

    Hi Welcome to the CABE!
    Maybe as early as 1950's no where near 1905 sorry.

    I can’t imagine this bike being 1905. I agree with others that date it much later maybe 1950’s -1970’s.

    To answer your second question, it doesn't have much value. Maybe a $100 or so. Try selling it on Craigslist.

    certainly not 1905, and of course postwar production.
    The people who can answer the details may not find it on this page.
