I found this outside a local thrift store for $75. It's missing something on the front fender and the rear fender. The chrome is rusty, but I've had Schwinns that looked worse and cleaned up pretty good. I was wondering if anyone knew the year of this bike and was wondering if $75 was an awesome price or just what it's worth. Thanks!

If it's negotiable I'd offer 50 cash and ride the tires off it if you are planning to flip it and retire I'd just buy 50$ in lottery tickets IMHO.

Here in my area, $50-$75 is a very fair price for that bike. If cleaned up really nice and the two missing parts are found, it could fetch $250. Again, in my area.

Sadly, I didn’t get it. I left work early 3 days in a row before I finally gave up. I’d be interested in seeing how your bike cleans up. Good luck!

Recently picked up a Western Flyer Cosmic flyer built by Murray. Other than new rubber, everything else is original. Can anyone help me with the approximate year (1959 -1961??) and value of this bike? I also have some
