Sacket cycle works

Finally riding a big boys bike
Hey guys just curious what the value on one of these fine ladies is. I am purchasing one this weekend and want to make sure I’m getting a decent deal. This is the same color etc however the one I’m getting is a little rusty as it was just pulled out of a barn. I’m not looking for an exact value on the one I’m buying just an approximate.

Thanks for any help.

Estimating on same color etc., little rusty, is somewhat hit-or-miss.
When a 2nd picture is posted, it is often found to be an entirely different make, model, and condition (important).
The headlight, maybe springer fork, and accessories on the girl's blue bike may be where there is most value.

I dig your "handle Archie Sturmer" and also agree on values can be all over the map. A rusty gals bike is not worth much unless it's what you like. Dudes bikes with nice patina are quite popular now, and that's great! At the end of the day any item is only worth what the buyer/seller agree on with some influence on supply and demand.

I do know that it is the exact same bike. I may be off by the year because it has a roadmaster badge instead of the “luxury liner” badge. It appears to be slightly rusty in the photos I’ve received and I didn’t want to post the pics I’ve received because people have sniped some bikes out from under me on that condition and I’m not taking that chance again. Anyways, thanks for the info and I’ll post a picture tomorrow when picking it up.

there are some of us out here, who will pay for the ladies.

If other photos of this bike, look as good as this side, I would think you can do better than 250.

There are buyers who appreciate beautiful ladies bicycles.

just saying.

While agreeing with it's only worth what someone will pay, I'd go $250 on that bike (judging from the picture only) and I think my wife would love it. If she didn't, I think I could sell it for a bit more pretty quickley.

Here are the pictures of the bike now that they are in my possession. I had to buy the second bike because the rear wheels had been swapped. And I couldn’t resist the original jeweled grips that are in pretty good shape. As I said the luxury liner is a little rusty but it doesn’t appear that it’s anything an OA bath won’t fix.

The 2nd bike looks to be a more-basic model (no tank or rack) by Snyder Mfg. built Hawthorne for Montgomery Ward.
Both should clean-up very nicely.

Any idea how to get the grips off without destroying them? They are men’s grips with original glass jewels in the ends of them.

Soap, boiling water(?), or a warm day merely soaking in a glass of water(?), not sure, never had grips nice enough to save; maybe another member will advise.
I have seen modern replacement jeweled grips, but have not bought any (yet).
Don't use channel locks or plyers tho.

After removal, I have used chlorine bleach and white vinegar on poly-vinyl chloride (PVC) grips; okay results, except for the harshest of brown rust stains on white grips. Not sure if those grips might be another synthetic rubber; some chemicals (e.g., oil, WD-40) may accelerate some rubbers turning into 'goo'.

Let em warm up in the sun. Something round and thin slid in the grip, then a little lube. Twist and pop em off. Hopefully.

What works best is air pressure. Plug the hole on one side and blow through the other with an air nozzle. The one grip will scoot off. Then put the air nozzle in that side, plug the end hole in the other grip, and give it a blast. That one will come off. This works unless some clown glued them on. You can use a little air wand that is smaller than a straw. Harbor Freight has them.

I would but they don’t have the holes because of the glass jeweled. I’ve tried that method before but unfortunately there’s no access on these.

We made one that works. Flatten the straw nozzle down so it's a narrow air slot. Put it on the inner end of the grip and blow around the edge, into the grip. Block the end hole, and wiggle the grip. If done right, with that air tool, they come off.

Stick the end of an ice pick between the grip and the bar creating a small space between the two. Stick the nozzle of your WD-40 into the space and squirt the WD-40 in. Give it a few seconds to spread around and then start turning the grip. Pretty soon the grip will just slide off.
