would an early model(looks that way) Dunelt with 3speed Sturmey Archer hub be worth $70?

it's in fairly good shape. some of the lettering has peeled off. it's black with gold lettering. the rear hub looks very clean. practically new. maybe it is.

it's go matching fenders; matching in that they look as old as the rest of the bike.

$70 sounds like a lot to me, unless you've got a thing for old British 3 speeds. An exception might be if it's got one of the more rare S-A hubs like the fixed gear 3 speed or maybe one of the close range racer hubs. I doubt you'd find those on a lesser brand, though.

Dunelt was an el cheapo English bike. My first 10 speed in 1962 was a Dunelt. I rode it thousands of miles and fell in love with cycling, but pretty quickly moved on to better bikes.
