Subject: [CR]Info: Made in Austria Sears bike and Trexlertown Swap

What's the collectibility if any on a older, probably 70s Sears/Roebuck Made in Austria, 27 in wheeled townie type bike. I located one in the attack of my grandfather's garage when my dad and I were getting out some old 50s Chevy parts...we came across this and my dad didn't even know it was up there. It has a 5 speed with simplex shifter. Synchro brake set up. It has dust but no rust...So, is there anything special about these bikes? Any groups that yearn for the Sears ones?

Also, the Trexlertown swap will be on October 1st this year. I will be there, Just looking mostly this time around. Hope to see you guys there again.
