What would a 1970 Pea Picker Coaster be worth in 7 out of 10 condition?


   RE:MISC:   PEA PICKER posted by Eric Tolnes on 10/18/2001 at 2:43:15 AM
I'm a relative novice, but from what I've seen on the "market", coaster brake versions of Krates are worth 50-60% of their 5spd counterparts. This may be in part due to the fact that one can (theoretically) replicate a coaster brake Krate using a reissue (or repro) Orange or Apple Krate with a paint job and a repro seat and handgrips. (At least visually) Just a thought.

Anyone know if there is a difference in knobby tires for early Stingrays (63-64) and the latter knobbies? I notice some have small lettering and some have larger. Feedback?
