Schwinn Speedster help?

Hey,
I am wondering what a 70s Schwinn speedster is worth. I was reading another forum that said anywhere between $300-500. What should be asking in pdx market? I dont have any pictures of it, but its basically perfect cosmetically and i think it rides good as well. Lmk if you have any advice. I will add pictures asap. Thanks

just a courtesy reply (since Schwinns usually get swept under the rug on this forum, unless it is a Paramount).
Not knowing the exact year and configuration (various brake options were available), I would consider 150 tops.
Even with the cosmetically perfect assumption, if it has not been ridden for a long time, consider tires/tubes due to potential
dry rot and a general tuneup. The Speedster (which also came in "Camelback" and straight bar version) was the lower end bike
at the time. You can head over to the Schwinn forum for more info.
Well, that's just my 2 Cents (I have about 20 Schwinns in my basement)

Here is a picture of the bike. It still has the original Schwinn tires.
