I just aquired a 1869 Huffy Yellow submarine promotion bike

from what I've heard there's only about 400 in the US
and I've heard it's a really rare collectable

I was thinking about selling it and using the funds toward college

It's in ok condition, I've been trying to get the rust off and clean it up

but I was wondering, how much would someone pay for it?

this is the seat, there's a small tear on the right and a slughtly bigger one on the left

I haven't gotten a chance to clean some of the dirt off yet

I'm not sure how much it could be worth, but I would go easy on cleaning/restoring it. It could devalue it if not properly done.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!

Wow, Yellow Submarine existed in 1869?

That probably would be worth quite a lot, if you restore it. But like Skye said, it's probably best to get it professionally done.

Shannonmac - could you post some more pictures please? I don't know anything about this, so couldn't tell you what it's worth, but I'd love to see more of it.

Please don't spoil my day; I'm miles away

Here's a link of someone selling one, and it has a picture too. They're selling it for $650, but I think you could sell it for a bit more.
