I can't find much about these bikes online other than company history. I don't want to send it to the scrapheap if there is a chance that someone else would get value out of it. It has been banging around in various family garages for 30+ years. I'm interested to know if it's worth keeping, trashing, giving away, or rebuilding. Does it have any value at all, monetary or historical?

Does anyone have any advice on what to do with this?

I have added a few pictures below. I don't know what you want to see photos of so let me know and I can add more if needed.


Hello and welcome to the forums. Pretty bike, I like that purple color and the lugs are great. I am sure a local shop can do a basic tune up on this and get it ready to ride for you.

I would not do too much to before seeing if you like how it rides. OH I don't think anyone mentioned this, does this bike fit you? The position of the saddle makes me think the frame is too large for the current rider. If it fits, I get ti tuned up and put a few miles on it to see if you like it, then get that fork replaced. Shops usually hav a selection of forks from broken frames so maybe you can find something used but a decent replacemnt new fork isn't that expensive anyway.
