This is a shelby.....i found it with this schwinn American. The shelby looks goofy because someone took a welder to it and they didn’t know how to weld! Got the shelby for 30$ and the ladies schwinn for 20$. Didn’t need either one but alas there they are! My intention is to cannibalizes both and use the parts on other builds. I thought i got a bargain???

I was gonna use the fork, fenders , rack and chain gaurd and crank set to build another frame I have. Because that shelby frame is scrap iron! Its like it was cut up rearranged and poorly welded! Ive got a 58 schwinn thats ahead of that build! So its just sitting there for now! I had a dude offer me 60$ for it ..but he was gonna paint it green and put it in his yard as art?! The shelby i mean.

Regarding the Schwinn, taking into account the work to clean, modify, getting it ride ready not to mention new or replaced parts - new rubber ($45 -60), seat, grips, etc., maybe $125-$200? Anyhow as others mentioned too, its valued at what someone is willing to pay. Often times when we work on bikes to get them ride ready to sell sometimes we rarely make our money back on the time spent and maybe break even on recouping $ spent on parts. . Time spent working on bikes and expense on parts usually only matters when we decide to ride them and to keep them for a while.
