I have just purchased an used Strida bike, when I got home and checked what I have bought I realised that it is a Strida MK 1, serial 008171, in good shape. What I can see (Im no expert at all) is bike in perfect shape (some marks here and there but if I consider that the bikes should be about 30 years old, then I consider very good condition). I have tried to find similar bikes on sale just to see what the value could be on this bike and if anyone would be interested to give me an offer on this.
So my question is, is this bike worth anything, or it is just an odd bike, but no value ?
Where is the right marketplace to sell this kind of bike ?
I myself is located in south of Sweden, near Denmark.
Thanks for your reply. I agree, its really cool and Im really happy about the bike with this history. But I intend to use my bike as an everyday bike, and after what I have read (that spare parts is impossible to find, etc) I was thinking that it maybe is better to sell this bike to a collector or similar that really enjoy the bike and for myself I get a bike that fits better as an everyday bike.
Its just a thought I haven’t made up my mind yet, but in the meanwhile I’m checking if anyone have an interest of this bike.
Depending on condition your bike could be actually interesting for collectors.
To talk about the price you have to find first interested parties I believe.
Personally I’d not ride such an ancient rarity; instead of I’d pin it at the wall, preferred at a place without direct sunlight. Also I’d not recommend to buy a Strida older than version 5 - if it is intended for riding and not pinning
You noticed that already; several parts of these bikes are not any longer in production since many years.
