Hi, Look for the serial number, by the left side (kickstand side)rear axle mount. You can find the year by looking up your serial number on the chart posted on this site.The value is subjective, most girls bikes aren't collectable. They are usually worth more for their parts. wheels,h/bars ect. Your bike, with a good cleaning, might get $100.00. I hope this is of some help.Patrick

Sorry, I forgot about the 2 speed. That is worth more than the rest of the bike, to me anyway.

I think Patrick is right in the ballpark. Your bike looks like a Traveler or something in that range, but you'll know more after you determine the year. Has it lost all its logos? Late 50s to early 60s, anyhow. Nice bow pedals, along with the AutoMatic hub, stainless fenders in vgc. The Traveler came standard with a generator set, (or do you say dynamo?) Any sign of something having been attached to the left seatstay?
The so-called 'lightweights' of that era aren't as hip as the balloon/middleweights, so even the men's model wouldn't be in great demand. But what that means is you've got a real nice ride, one that's worth more as transport than as part of a 'collection' hanging on some hook. It wouldn't be out of place going to and from a suburban train station, but cool heads would admire it...

Ok guys, the only thing I can find is Model B by the rear axel mount. I read somewhere that it could be marked on the inside of the axel or something. Also, Im not sure what the seatstay is?

Tess, You're looking @ the brake arm. It has "Bendix Model B" stamped on it, right? Dont look on that brake arm, thats not the frame. Look where the rear fender brace mounts to the frame,just above the axle.You might have to take the screw out and move the fender brace, to see the number.Patrick.......P.S. That rear hub probably has 3 yellow rings or bands around it. This kinda tells me the bike is a late 1964 or '65

The seat stays are the frame tubes that run from the seat cluster, where the seat post goes in, to the back wheel.
If the hub had three red bands, it would say Bendix AutoMatic.

Ken, It has 3 yellow stripes and it says Bendix Automatic 2 speed. Also, I dont see any signs of anything being attached to left seatstay. And, there is one logo in the front, on the part(bar) that is directly under or attaches to the handle bars.

ok, you're still looking for the serial number which is almost certainly stamped in the frame directly above the brake arm (where it says Bendix etc). It may be partly covered by the axle nut and/or obscured with grime.

OK I found it. Still cant figure out what kinda bike it is. I know it's a 66, now, serial # is CB13812.I cant find which model or the name of it. Also, I ve noticed that the center bar that goes from the front forks to the center of the bike has a different curve than most of the girl bikes I've seen.

Hi Tess Your bike is a Deluxe Breeze. It should have 26x1 3/8 tires. The chrome fenders, and seat give it away. Patrick

Someone has replaced the fender braces, but that shouldn't be very hard to fix ...
