    How ever you decide to sell it I would only sell it local pickup . let the new owner handle picking it up I would not have a bike shop pack it as they do not care or understand how rare it is as ya cannot replace a lot of the parts on this bike which would cause problems in your sale if shipping damage is incurred no $$ from shipping insurance matters as ya can’t buy the parts to fix this 82 year old bike if I were you save your self a lot of hassle and sell pick up only wether on here or eBay cash pick up only . All of us on here have had bikes shipped or shipped bikes and have spent hours wrapping and packing to protect them but once in the hands of Any shipping company it’s just a large box that some times seems as if it was rolled end over end across the country .... Good luck with sale and please have it picked up to preserve its glory

    I will pay cash and will fly to pick it up, no shipping hassle for you, and rest assure that it'll be in good hands.

    In my honest opinion it is an heirloom. I'd either keep it or sell it to someone I know would respect the bike and not just buy it to resale or hoard it away.

    I had forgotten about justin9's Aerocycle until
    it was brought back to life!

    So far it looks like no one has made him
    "an offer he can't refuse!" :laughing:

    Seems like it, if his family really wanted to sell it they would have. 12k+ for any bike you got for free seems pretty decent if you ask me..they must not need the money.

    The Copake Antique Bicycle Auction is coming up in April.
    That would be an exciting place for you and your family to see it go to its next caretaker.
    It would get good exposure there with prominent buyers from all over the World.
    It might be a fun experience for your whole family.
    Look up the Copake auction and give them a call. I'm sure, they'd love to hear from you.

    IN MY OPINION, THIS BIKE NEEDS A GOOD HOME, CORRECT SADDLE, BATH AND TENDER LOVING CARE.

    So Justin,
    If you still have this very cool survivor Aerocycle, let me chime in.
    Consign it to Copake Auction. Not only will it find a good home but it will sell for more than you can imagine.
    It is without a doubt the biggest and best vintage bicycle event annually (every April). Not only a live auction, but largest internet audience also bidding.
    Call Mike Fallon (518) 329-1142 and tell him I referred you.

    Bike will certainly be the Hit of Copake this year in the Balloon category for sure!
    You might set a world record....be interesting to see the attention the bike gets that it certainly deserves...
    and they'll let you put a reserve on it.
    Great experience just being there....Let alone having the coolest bike at the party..
    You will also be entertained by the down home atmosphere as well as the
    world wide attendance at this once a year event!
