    I have a nearly perfect 1962 Sprite in my shop. Based on an original catalog and dating parts it was refitted with a new drivetrain circa 1968 (but I do have the parts to bring it back to original if I wanted to).

    It is VERY clean and has been thoroughly gone over, and is for sale for $240.00 including free minor adjustments for life and free flat repair labor for life. I purchased the bike for $40 and it took about 7 hours labor and $70 in parts to bring it to what it is now. It rides beautifully and is the PERFECT bike for those cappuccino runs... now only if I drank cappuccino...

    EDIT: Well, you lost your chance. My Sprite sold today- I took $150 plus 2 trade-in bikes.

    Not worth much in that condition the 1962 Sprite was a road bike. $20 maybe.
