someone earlier advised caution when dealing with chestnut hollow. I would like to know what happened and what they meant by the remark. I plan on buying extensively from them since they are the only ones who I've found have the parts I need. if there is a problem I would like to hear about it sooner than later. they seemed very nice when I called them.
thanx. Scott
P.S. you can e-mail me if you are uncomfortable posting your opinions on the forum.

BALLOON:   Please Help posted by: Eric on 8/24/2005 at 7:36:21 PM
Hello,
I just bought a bike at a swap meet, I think It's an old schwinn but I don't know the year or make. It looks like the 31-40 balloon tire bikes on this site, but it has a gas tank with two small headlights on the front of it, they look like eyes on the front of the tank. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

can you send or post a picture? might help. what tire size is it? I'm guessing from the description of the lights that it's a mid '60s middleweight, possibly a Hawthorne, or a Firestone. I've seen a few with the lights as you described them.
thanx. Scott

You are likely to locate the serial # at the back of the frame. Once you do, write it on a piece of paper and then click on to the serial # charts on this site. Good luck!!

I have an old schwinn, I think we have narrowed it down to a 1936. The crank has "AS 36" on it. Here are some pictures:

AGE / VALUE:   1955 Rollfast? posted by: Jacob Knable on 8/22/2005 at 10:33:17 PM
Does anyone out there know a lot about 50's Rollfasts? I have a 50's middleweight with a 2 speed bendix coaster brake hub which I believe is stock but I do not know it's model name or the date it was built. I would like to sell it but don't know what it's worth. Can anybody help me with some or all of this info?
