That rust isn't bad, it will likely clean up. The paint I'm less sure about. Is that over spray? And I would replace those tires, they may hold air but full pressure will probably split a seam. But still a good find!

No it’s original paint but faded a lot on top bar They are original tires but rear would never hold air but front might but won’t try. Value anyone as I am going to sell it? Thanks

1981.... A great year for these....Nice save.. with some tires and a little effort Im sure it will clean up and look nice.

This is a $75 late 81 after clean up that was in similar condition to your bike when found

Once you take it out and ride it... its easy to see these bikes are worth putting in the TLC.

Yet another Chestnut? MR serial. 1981 Cruiser 5 built 120 days into 1981. Wish I had more room and the energy for another project.

Cool bike, and the color is a little more desirable because it's not as common. Fair price as is $175-$275 ish. If it had the rear drum brake, could add up to $125.

CONDITION & LOCATION is everything when it comes to valuing these bikes. And if you plan on selling it, you are better off selling it AS-IS rather than putting $$$ into it that you will not get back. It needs lots of work to get it back up and rideable! BTW, I see it needs a gear cable, and the original GREY gear cables are extremely hard to find, and will cost you $50+ if you are lucky enough to even find one! Also, as set of tires & tubes will cost $100, so you will be $150 into it before you even start a restoration..........
