MISC:   Roadmaster AMF JET posted by: Adam Akers on 7/28/2003 at 4:37:03 AM
I just recently acquired my fathers Roadmaster AMF bike. I believe that he got it in the late fifties or early sixties. It has a horn tank on it that in chrome / gold letters says JET. Can anyone tell me more info on this bike, or the year that it might be or value. It is in great condition the chrome is not pitted anywhere. Help!!!

Nice bike. I was just checking out a Saratoga today at the house I am working at. Any working 3 speed is worth at least $20. Unfortunately, Huffys do not have the collectable value that some other 3 speeds might command, but it is a real nice bike for riding. Enjoy it!
