and can anybody indentify this bike, biue whith white lines through it looks like it might have benn a schwinn but has the jc higgins eblem painted on it, and balloon tires + a banna seat Thanks!!
| There is a ton of information on JC Higgins bicycles in the archives here, including over a dozen pictures of them in the Picture Database. (For some reason they are in the database in 2 places as: "JC Higgins" and "J.C. Higgins" with periods after the J and C)|
I was going to say the banana seat on yours was not original, but there's also one in the Picture Database with a banana seat!
| i am trying to find out the manufacturer of my fathers 24"boysbike i believe to be a 1951 built by columbia for some other company. ID#R587838 ;i am in the process of restoring it but i need badge plate.thank you for any information.|
| I want to build two 26 inch bikes for fun... I want to locate a pair of camel back frames. What would be the most common and ecinomical frames out there?|
This is all new to me.
Thanks for the help.
| I'd look for 1959/60 schwinn toranados.They have two stright bars below the top tube,you could remove them and file the area smooth.They are the cheapest of this type.The Flying star is the same frame without the twinn bars---but they seem to bring more for some reason. |
| Another option would be to buy a couple of those cheap import cruisers you can get at places like Wal-Mart. The chrome is thin and the components are very low end, but you'd get 2 strong frames and all the parts you'd need in one place!|
| please don't cut up old frames. it's just not right!!!|
| Yepp...please don't carve-up the old frames. Go out and kill a new one from Target or Wall(made in China)Mart.|
| I rather use old frames. Even refabbed Walmart Bike wouldnt look and feel the same....|
| If you should happen to locate a Schwinn Tornado, keep in mind that unlike other Schwinns they didn't come equipped with built-in kickstands; at least my '60 didn't.|
|I am looking for assistance in identifying this tandem frame. I am unable to locate any numbers. Have seen on this and other forums that it could be either a late-40's Western Flyer Tandem, an early-50's Firestone Tandem, or a mid-50's Monark Tandem.|
| Submitted photo to Picture Database but could be a few days. Sorry! I can email anyone with knowledge of these tandem in the meantime.|
| Could someone email me a photo of the shift rod for a New Departure Twin Streak hub? Thanks.|
