I'd say that with knackered forks it's little more than worthless, though doubtless someone would buy it for £20 and graft on some forks from another bike.

I agree, probably not worth much, but might possibly be of interest to someone that collects vintage children's bicycles/Americana.

I googled "vintage children's bicycles" and it didn't find much but you could try here and see if anyone can tell you more: http://www.collectorsweekly.com/outdoor ... es/stories

The front forks aren't bent or mangled, I'm pretty sure that is how it was designed. But thank you for all the help guys, I thought I had a rusty gem. Thanks again!

The forks are ok? Oh, in that case it's worth about £1500.

It looks more of a klunker designed mass produced bike in the states with a kawasaki label in so perhaps a promotional item?

Given the location has not been given but I feel it is in the states? it might be worth trying mtbr in the vintage section which is U.S. based. I would agree with some views that it looks to be not worth much.

My 2p worth is to put it back at the side of the shed and leave it there. It will eventually all rust away and return to mother earth. At that point it will probably increase the land value of the area beside your shed if you sell with mining rights.

Quite!

Some pretty distasteful snobbery and unecessary jibbing of a new user going on

Admittedly by the rules of the site the original question should have been inthe XYZ? theread, but 90% of new users arent likely to realise that

Agreed, although the op has argued that the forks are not bent even though they quite clearly are but he seems to think he knows better.
