G4S is right. Need to post pictures. Ball park 8-10K if in good shape. This can vary wildly though. In reality it's worth exactly what you can get someone to pay.

Shape

Well , its been sitting sense the mid 80's. Nothing really goes wrong with bikes from sitting as long as they're cleaned beforhand which mine was.
It's a spiderweb model aswell , anything wrong with it i can and will fix myself. I've been working on bikes and cars for 40years or more.
My wife just didnt want be riding anymore with the danger factor ive been in a few accidents.
Thanks for the help everyone , I plan on getting it shortly and ill post some pics befor i start restoring what needs to be done. Ahh... If anyone knows about cars ( I cant find one for sale )
What is a 1970 Plymouth Superbird with a 426 hemi. 3dueces
Completely original aswell.. even the paint which of course will need to be redone.
i just cant seem to locate one to find a price.

71 bad year for Harley !
70 SUPERBIRD the wing brings the value down!
426 hemi isnt collectable! 318 would bring value up!
3 dueces = gas hog!
I will give ya 2500.00 for both


That way your wife wont have to worry about ya!
she will be happy and I can feel good about myself because I helped a brother out!

That superbird is worth way more than 30K unless it's trashed and a rust bucket and if it's been in a garage,I doubt that. It's hard to beleive someone's got this in a garage all these years and don't know what it's worth. Just watch Jackson Barret auctions on speed,i saw one of these go for 1/4 of a mill that was like new. You shure your freind didn't sell em. Picture's please or we will bring out the troll police.

The 71 is not really a collectable as of yet. the motorcycle is worth what it is the shape has all to say about. The 70 superbird is a collectable and i would get a professional auction house to advise you about it. Chances are that it is worth more in it's stock condition - do not do anything to change that until you talk to the auction house!

I don't think the Hemi came with 3 dueces. 440 came with the 6 Pack, ie 3 duece setup.

I believe you're right. The Hemi came with 2 Carter AFB four barrel carbs on a cross ram type intake manifold. The 440 6 pack was 3 Holley 2300 series two barrel carbs. BWDIK?

If that superbird is a hemi it is very rare. According to this link, "Only 135 models were fitted with the great 426 Hemi."
