    Am thinking I may need to move some bikes out so boxed bikes may be built. This April 1967 Schwinn Deluxe Racer 3-speed would be the first for sale.
    Minus, the seat bag, what's a fair price to ask? Includes original pedals, seat, working light kit, rear reflector/bezel, and replaced tread.
    $200? $250? $300 for the right customer?
    Thanks and Cheers!

    Value depends on your location and it's market. Looks like it's missing the "S" saddle which is a lot of this bikes allure in my opinion, and a chunk of its value. I got $360 for this one last spring, the bike was very minty and completely overhauled. 0ee305042f3f170fb41d3a4b8c7514e9.jpg

    There's a nice 1967 coppertone Deluxe Racer on ebay right now with the original seat, clean chain guard, smooth chrome fenders, but no rear rack, and a bid at $350. So, I may be in the ballpark. Heck, I'd be fool enough to keep this if I can find a matching 1967 coppertone step-through frame Racer.

    My market is pretty good given the hipsters and local colleges. Most people have freqman1s experience with these style of bikes and have a hard time getting any money for them. $200 or more seems to be pretty usual for most markets. In my opinion my bike was an exception due to its condition and location, although I was in no hurry to sell and got frequent offers, but I held out for someone who appreciated it as much as I did.

    I'm guessing the condition was more important than the location. Bikes that nice aren't real common in any location.
