A friend of mine has a neighbor selling this 1960's ??? 3-speed Fleet Wing bike. Appears to be, from the hanging photo he sent, to be in nice condition...and with a rear rack. Looks like an offshoot of a lesser Raleigh bike, though. Maybe I'm wrong.

Any idea as to the value on it?

Don't make any right hand turns until you reroute the left side brake cable ;)

Looks like its in pretty good condition and if it's what you want, price seems fair especially if tires are good. Only problem I see is dealing with those ##@**&%%$$## cottered cranks as you should clean and repack all the bearing assemblies if they haven't been done recently.

If your into lightweights yes , I dont see how you could go wrong for 50 bux.
