   RE:FOR SALE:   1966 Schwinn Fleet posted by Marty on 6/23/2003 at 2:12:38 AM
I just sold a 64 all original including tires on ebay for 147.00 It also had a 2 speed kick back hub. 950.00 is a little high. I have seen real clean mint ones go for as high as 350.00 If you really want to sell it try Ebay its a little bit of a job getting registered but it worth it. Time your listing so that it will end in the evening on the west coast those guys out there are the big spenders.
Good Luck! Marty Taylor mi.

MISC:   Centurion Sport DLX posted by: Kevin on 6/10/2003 at 3:21:14 PM
I have a Ceturion Sport DLX that I bought brand new in the 80's. It is white, has indexed Shimano shifters and Biopace chainrings. It is in Excellent to New condition with a little yellowing beneath the bottom bracket (presumably from lubricant leakage). There are some very minor chips in the finish. I have ridden this bike maybe a total of about 50 miles (I bought it, and then ignored it). I have since given it a good cleaning and lubrication. Anyone have an idea as to how much this bike is worth? I think i paid around $350 for it new.

Thanks to all who were kind enough to reply- especially Jim, who is selling me a pretty decent looking Raleigh Sprite!

Can't wait to get it- had one of these as a teenager, and it suits me needs perfectly!

Thanks again to all,
