    The Schwinn Krates from 1968 - 1973. I don't remember a copper one.

    Orange = Orange Krate
    Green = Pea Picker
    Red = Apple Krate
    Yellow = Lemon Peeler
    Special edition Grey = Grey Ghost

    Oh My Sack!
    There wasn't a copper "krate" bike. Just the Sting Ray and other models.

    And it was "Apple Krate" not a "Peeler". ;)

    I don't know where I got Peeler from. All I know is at 8 years old I drooled over my neighbors Orange Krate. I later built my own Singray out of a cruiser Schwinn.

    The Ram's Horn is awesome! It looks like BMX drop-bars. Maybe they will make a comeback?

    For only $1000 you can get yourself a 21 year old rusty p.o.s that was only ridden approx. 20 times. Its vintage.

    Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha !!!

    I wouldn't pay $1000, but I'd ride it any day.

    Some of those Bontragers are still quite nice to ride, but I also agree that I wouldn't pay that much.

    From the looks of it, the bike was too small for the kid anyway.

    Guys is charging about twice what he should. And that bike is from after the trek buyout and made in the trek factory not the Santa Cruz factory like the bonty races were.

    As far as a "20 year old rusty POS", the man how gave us the phrase "strong, light, cheap, pick two" is not known for designing POS MTB parts or bikes.

    Bicyclebluebook does not base prices off of recent sales and is terrible at valuing desirable vintage bikes. I do not know how they determine value. However, statricks bases there value off of recent market sales which is what people actually paid for a particular item. And what someone is willing to pay is what an item is worth.

    Here is an example. Bicycle blue book puts a max value of $300 for a conmplete and excellent condition 1993 Bridgestone mb1. While right now there is just the '93 mb1 frame for sale on eBay and the bids are already at $300 with 2 days left. I am guessing the frame will go for about $400-$500 and that is with no components included at all. Bicycleblue book has no idea what a proper value of these kinds of bike should be.
