    If radio works and is complete, I’m thinking $1000-$1500.
    (Obviously...much depends on condition)

    Too bad it’s a “Middleweight”, not that there is something wrong with that...
    but I’m 6’3”. :(

    But ...if given the chance and the price was reasonable...I’d probably get it.

    Still has the power pack, correct pedals, antenna and both radio knobs.
    If your going to buy one of these that is the condition I would be looking for.
    If you can buy it at anything under $1,000 I personally think your all good.
    I sold just the right side of a radio tank for $400 it had both radio knobs and the antenna ( broke in half ) so $500-$700 ( The Stig ) I think would be a very great deal. you'll never find another one in that condition for that price.

    That bike has all of the rare, unobtainable parts. Too bad the front has such severe paint damage. It is the common red model, without the 2-speed option. However, given it is complete and in reasonable condition, value estimate is $1,000-$1,300.

    I am the one that bought the tank half from jkent. I parted it out - robbed the bracket, both knobs, and several clutch-head screws from it. Resold it for $250. Paint was faded, trim was all gone. I paid what I did just to get the knobs.

    If mint, a red one is worth right around $1,500-$2,000. If the radio works!!

    I appraised a beautiful green bike this afternoon. It is possibly the nicest green example in PRIVATE hands.

    Not to me, and won't disclose who is trying to acquire the bike. The overall condition is on par with the one in Carillon Park's bicycle museum in Dayton, Ohio. I know that Huffy Corporation owns a green one too that is practically NOS. I hope this person gets the bike and posts it here. It's the nicest privately-owned green one I have seen in a very long time, possibly ever.
