That looks like it's in nice shape and it has the large bed too. For value I'd guess somewhere in the 900-1500 range. These old Cushmans are basically mini trucks lol.

... but much more valuable.  Your price is close.  In my area, it would be low!

 

You can still get all sorts of parts for them.  There is a whole collector field out there that eat them up like candy.

Do not have a value.  Those old Cushman and held  haulers were cool toys to have.

Be worth a lot more if it was a Cushman bike of the early years.

I'd say anywhere from 500 to 1000. They aren't all that collectible. The Cushman bikes have a huge group of collectors. The trucksters and such not as much.

It would probably bring an additional $500 if it were a 4 wheeler.I was talking to a dealer 7 years ago and he said a Truckster with all the bells and whistles sell for just under $30,000.

OK, here's my $.02 worth.....

 

The "Turf Trucksters" are not rare.  They were sold by the gobbs for many, many years.  Virtually all golf courses and large sports fields use[d] them.  Turf models are not street legal like the standard Trucksters and likely geared for 20-25 MPH tops. 

Now to find one that old that is not already used up might not be so easy.  Usually they are run into the ground by teenage summer help.  That one looks pretty decent.  It would be very handy around a farm or small acreage, flea markets, and tractor shows.  

I put many miles on a Cushman Mailster when I was a youngin'.  The three on the tree is a good setup - not everyone knows how to drive one. 

They do not fly very well!  My cousin proved that.  :shoot2:

It'd be handy and fun at the same time.

I don't do values. 

Good luck!

Did these ever have a cab on them. I followed a guy the other day trying to see what he was towing. It was a Cushman like these but with a cab. It needed a lot of work but looked like a neat project.

That's a good link. I Googled them after I asked that question & was I surprised to see the variations. These look like a really fun project that you could personalize real easy.

They are very neat. Did you see any of the bikes they produced?

We have had a few before tv shows like American pickers turned every body who had one in their shed into thinking they had a gold mine.

I am wanting to pick another cushman super eagle up but you can't touch them under a few grand anymore. I sold my last one for 500 dollars...now they go for 3 or 4 thousand

I work on the Cushman line along with Ezgo. The newer models are high value. Curtis cabs can be installed on them too.

Cushman trucksters stopped being made in 2002 I think. Cushman is just a name now. It's not the same company it was back in the day
