A Monark bicycle is a neat item that can have value depending on which model you own. While the older models may be more vintage and worth more, it is important to look at the quality of the bike as well. Even though a bike is old, if a bike has a lot of rust on it and is missing some parts, it may be worth little to no money. A newer model that is still shiny and rideable may be worth a nice amount of change.
A Monark bicycle has just about everything you need. From pedal breaks, head lights, reflectors and a basket in the back you are on your way to a great piece of equipment. This was a very expensive brand when this company first became popular. Many of the older models are still rideable and popular even today. These bikes are great items that you should be thankful you own.
