    As a current Richmond wrench, I can tell you this tradition remains strong! I've actually got a customer, currently, with a Huffy Echelon. Same aero tubing "all original." Ugh!

    Necrothreading (yes as a n00b), but this discussion is why I joined.

    I have a 12-speed men's Aerowind with the tires dry rotting off and just figured I'd get rid of it. I listed it online for free, which hurts. This was my first big boy's bike in the 80s.

    After 12 hours I pulled the ad to stop the flood of requests. That's how I found this thread.

    So the tires are a lost cause. The handle bars have been rewrapped more than once. There are scuffs, scratches, the chain and gearing are caked with greasy dust, the plastic aerodynamic covers for the breaks are crumbling and lot of other wear and tear.

    What is this actually worth? I can't find one online for under $150. Apparently giving it away is a bad idea. I can't believe the level of interest people have shown.

    If someone wants to give you any money for this take it.

    You wrote that you haven’t found one listed for less than $150. If any have actually sold for $150, then mark it according to comparative conditions. Less if yours is worse, more if yours is better. If you are willing to ship it, specify the price is plus shipping because these things are tanks. And specify that all sales are final because these things are junk and you don’t want to take it back once you’ve gotten rid of it.

    If it was useable, it “might” be a $50 bike on my local CL, especially when the college kids come back to town. Pump the tires, lube the moving parts, check the shifting, check the brakes and be done with it. You might also consider making the bike a $150 donation to your local bike co-op, where they do the work, someone feels good about a new bike and you walk away.

    Tires are rotten. Have no way to lube it my self. The rest should be okay.
    I just noticed someone sold a pair for $125 on ebay. Maybe $50 is the answer.

    Just thought I'd mention I got $45 for this. It was negotiated down, but to me it was already free and was negotiated UP to $45.
    It's nice when people pay you for your garbage.

    Thanks for all the information guys. I did love that bike though. Had it since it was new.

    More amazing: my dad tells me he bought it new at $90. (Okay, adjusting for inflation that's like $230, but it still sounds good.)
