I think you would get more money parting it. For example neither that stem or guard are correct for this bike but are money pieces so I would probably sell them separately. V/r Shawn
It's not all about money Shawn. We beg to differ again...lol.. It's a hobby, not a stock market. If everyone who had a "non correct showroom bike" parted it out, where would the hobby be? Swap meets, Cabe, newbies, history, personal tweaks on anything stock would not exist. We can't all afford ( or desire) a bone stock or 100 point resto. Viva la freedom to express and be a bit different. Cheers, Bob

Bob the guy was asking what the value because he is considering selling hence my suggestion for maximizing the sale--nothing less, nothing more.

Ok buddy, just offering my 2 bits as well. That's what the hobby is also about. Freedom to express ones opinion. We can always agree to disagree on anything, no hard feelings either way. Send heat, we had a dusting of snow on Friday. Cheers, Bob

Hi Joaquin,

I have some questions to assist in determining value:
1. Is the tank original chrome or has been re-plated?
2. What is the serial number on the frame?
3. Is the crows beak guard sheet metal or a cast repop? The cast ones are slightly thicker; is it magnetic?
Kindly, Brant

Here is the way I see it based on your images, detailed images would help in making a better assessment:
Frame and fork: $1,500+/-
Lights with bracket $450+/-
Chain guard $450+/-
Tomahawk stem/Wald #5 $1,000 +/-
Badge $100-$125
Tank $1,000-$1,200
Pedals (Persons or Torrington?) $300-500 depending if they are original and condition. Edit, see below.

The badge should be the Firestone Marty illustrated above; the fenders are not correct, this model was never offered with a chrome tank. The chain guard should be the Firestone guard, not the crow's beak. Stem never came on this bike as a stock item; an aftermarket upgrade.

You have a great collection of parts there which are super desirable. You could always try selling it for the total here which comes to around $4,800 give or take. If it doesn't sell intact it seems that it would be easy to net that amount pieced out. You can do a quick search to compare others that sold or are still available in the past year.

Good luck. Kindly, Brant

Look Ma, No Hands!
First of all I would like to THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH for your input!!!

A little back round on the bike... I bought it in 1994 before the internet was really "anything", and the only information I could find was from books and newsletters from bike collectors and antique bike sellers. The first time I saw a picture of a DH Super Streamliner, I HAD TO OWN ONE!!!! My manufacturing business was doing really well and this was going to be my bonus! So the dealers I contacted all said "Good luck there buddy"!

That was until I contacted Sleepy Hallow ( I bet you can guess where this is going ;) ) and they said, "Sure but it is a lot of money"!
My reply, "I don't care, I want the bike"! Now looking back, in my minds eye... They must have been laughing their arses off and hooting " We just duped another stooge from California!"

So now lets progress to mid October 2020: I post this thread and I got a REAL SURPRISE!

At first the news pissed me off and I just wanted to part it out... And be rid of the damn thing Then over the last week when I went into my bike room and saw the bike, I had to chuckle... I really do love it "for the sum of the parts" and the lesson the bike taught me! Sadly though, the bike is to small for me to comfortably ride. But, heck I own plein air paintings worth 10X the value of the bike... And I can't ride them either!

So I am going to restore it, than hang it on the wall ( right next to my plein air art)!
Thanks again guys!
