FOR SALE:   Hub Part Boxes posted by: jack on 5/1/2005 at 6:14:48 AM
The parts boxes I posted a couple days ago are hub part boxes (New Departure, Morrow). They came with different brands of coaster and 3-speed internals..bearings, pawls, springs, brake shoes, etc. Does anyone here specialize in stocking this stuff? Its looks mostly NOS but no gaurantee. I'm into lwts and have no use for it other than selling. Since the stuff is disorganized it would probably be better to sell it as a lot or by the pound. Any interest? If so, I can take some pics.

MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Bendix shifter posted by: C. Riley on 4/30/2005 at 1:36:47 AM
Please forgive my ignorance it is abundant! I think I have a 55' Schwinn American. It has a Thumb? type shifter that attaches to the handle bars. It is marked Bendix aviation corp. What is it for? Should it be located on the left or right side? The cable is broken on both ends. Where should I look for a replacement? What should I ask for? Any help is greatly apppreciated....

Your bike is equipped with a Bendix 2 speed hub known as the Bendix Multispeed Power Brake. It was produced from 1953 to 1961. The lever is usually located on the right, but it would work as well on the left. Sqeezing the lever shifts gears, returning it to the "unsqeezed" position shifts back. This takes a special cable and they can often be found on eBay. If you need help with the hub, let me know. I have repair parts and some exploded diagrams.

FOR SALE:   Bike Parts Boxes posted by: jack on 4/29/2005 at 6:32:37 AM
I have some factory parts boxes that came out of an old bike shop. These are painted and have script for Schwinn, New Departure and Morrow. I believe they are 50yo or so and are designed for benchtop being about a foot high, 2ft wide and a foot deep. The top is slanted down and when opened reveals compartmentalized drawers. I'm not sure what they are worth but by comparing with tool boxes and such, the larger Schwinn box would be at least $100 with the smaller ND and Morrow maybe 50-75, plus shipping of course as they are all steel.

Just thought I'd let you guys have a crack at them before they go to ebay, plus testing waters to see what demand there is. I can email pics if a few request but if I get hundreds of responses (who knows?) please understand that I may not be able to respond to everyone.

BALLOON:   MISCELLANEOUS MYSTERIES posted by: Rod on 4/26/2005 at 5:55:21 PM
I have three different mysteries: a Lenox camelback, a Firestone step-thru, and a Thunder-Jet step-thru. I've acquired them years ago and have been unsuccessful in finding info on any them other than the fact that they're a lot older than 1969. Bike shops in my area don't seem to have knowledge of these miscellaneous artifacts so any help would be greatly appreciated.
