Looks like a cheaper touring model. Schrader rims and a kick stand. You probably won't get much for it.

I'd bet that the seat post is frozen, too.

Did you ride it into a wall and kill the forks or was that the previous owner?

I'd check that saddle for STD's before I sat on it.

FWIW. The bike possibly dates to somewhere between 1968-and-1974 ... probably, 1971-or-1972.

Except for the severely damaged front fork the bike appears to be in surprisingly good condition.

As noted, it was not an expensive bike ...

Those SIMPLEX derailleurs were better than the HURET derailleurs found on 60s-vintage Schwinns ... but, their mediocre capabilities probably helped to ensure the takeover of cycling components by SunTour, first, and later Shimano.

The stamped steel dropouts (actually, nothing functionally wrong with them ... it's more of a cosmetic issue) are a sure indicator of a low end bicycle.

I think that it would be hard to find a bike with a cottered crankset after 1976 unless it was a 3-speed.

When the in-name-only "Pinarello" was new, it would have cost between $90-to-$120 (depending on if it was before-or-after one of the rounds of Dollar devaluation) ...

While I am a huge fan of older steel bike frames, YOUR bike's street value is probably in the $30-to-$50 range unless you were to find a "collector" who was having a Rosebud moment ... or, someone looking for some of the specific components.

If the question is whether it is worth making safe-to-ride (the fork absolutely needs to be replaced!) OR to update it with either more-or-less contemporary components OR contemporary components ...

Then, I say yes if you can DIY + if you are wise shopper ...

My landlord was going to throw it out, He had no idea about the bike. I myself didn't realize about the bent fork. I figured I would get some info and get a few $$ for it. Perhaps someone would like an older bike to restore it. Seems it will be a huge project. Thanks all for the comments
