Hello and welcome to the forums. Your bike could be worth anywhere from $50 to several hundred dollars but it all depends on the model and the condition of the bike. Do you have any good pics? You need 10 post before you can load pics but if you want to save some time just email them to and I'll post them for you. BianchiGirLL@yahoo.com

Good Morning. this is neat, you don't have any other information on these? Do you know what size wheels they use? 24"? 26"? is the other one complete of just the frame?



Too bad this won't fit 700c wheels and sidepull brakes, this would make a cool project for Nexus IGH wheelset

Rim size should be written on the tire, maybe something like 26x2.5







Is that purple? Or is just the light?
