FOR SALE:   Texas Rangerette Bike posted by: Dianne on 11/25/2000 at 2:52:17 PM
I have a vintage Texas Rangerette bike. Original paint. Looks to be from the 50's. There are stars cut out on the plate that holds the chain. Anyone know anything about this bike or the value?

Texas Rangers have never caught on as collectable bikes. The value is just so so. If you can find someone who is not a collector but wants a different bike you might get $60 to $75.00 out of one.

FOR SALE:   Elgin Wood rimmed bicycle posted by: Tim on 11/24/2000 at 8:45:21 AM
I have a boys 28 in. bicycle complete except for chain and one hand grip. This bike has factory paint but it shows a lot of age. Is this bicycle worth anything?

   RE:FOR SALE:   Elgin Wood rimmed bicycle posted by Cam on 11/25/2000 at 9:42:17 AM
Early wood-rimmed bicycles in fair condition go for between $200 and $2000!

   RE:FOR SALE:   Elgin Wood rimmed bicycle posted by Bob on 11/27/2000 at 2:08:05 PM
Most 28" bicycles are not very sought after by collectors. Nice basic models sell for 1-300 range. Accessories like lights, toolbox tanks, ... will increase the value and bad tires or rims will greatly reduce the value because these are very expensive to replace. (see Coker Tires website for pricing). Original paint bikes are getting harder to find.
