MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Tires for a 1901 shaft drive rambler posted by: Randy on 12/11/2006 at 8:30:23 AM
Hi,
I have a 1901 Rambler shaft drive bicycle with wooden rims. The rims are very deep and a 27 inch clincher tire will go on but not stay seated. Can anyone tell me what the correct tire size should be, and if they are available?

Thanks,

Randy

If you need some 28" tires, I got a set of IRC Guaranty Roadster's 28 x 1 1/2. They are NOS and in great shape. Send me an offer at webbs_bicycle_recycle@yahoo.com

MISC:   Worksman Tandem Restoration posted by: Peter on 12/10/2006 at 3:52:21 PM
Hello ! I have been to this site probably a million times, but I have not found a discussion place for Tandem bikes.
Can a link to a page be made ???? I have purchased a Worksman Tandem bike, that has 26 X 2.125 tires, so I guess that would be considered Ballon Type because of it's size. So that is why I am posting my message here. Someone left this bike sitting outside for probably 2-3 years or more, and I am in the process of bring it back to life. ( a good winter project!) This is not my first restore ... have a few under my belt already ...
I have already spent hours stripping the bike, and working on the frame. It now has 2 coats of primer, and will be painted candy apple red with the a silver metallic undercoat. The last step will be to clear coat the whole frame. Nice ! I will send a pic to old roads when this project is completely finished. I have seen one other post a few years ago that said the same, restoring a Worksman tandem, and was wondering how it came out. I tried to e mail the person but they no longer have the address linked to the post.
For anyone who may have a Worksman bike, most of the parts for any of their bikes are still available, and can be ordered easily over the phone. I have found a few sites on the internet concerning these bikes, but only a few.
Is anyone else out there into Worksman tandems ????
Anyone interested in communicating about tese bikes, feel free to drop me an e mail or a pic .... !

I think oldroads doesn't have section for tandems because there are tandems built in so many styles: Balloon, Lightweight, middleweight and even some Schwinn Sting-Rays were built as tandems (the mini-twinn)

Interesting! We need to open up a new section just for tandems. Good Idea.

I have a skip tooth double chainring that goes to a very, very old Schwinn tandem and I pulled it from a old, ancient shop and even though I have never listed it for sale I am sure that I am married to it forever. But..........Who can tell!

Westfield is in Massachusetts, near Springfield where Indian bicycles and motorcycles were made. Westfields are pretty much the same as Columbias, I think. Unless you have a genuine Indian bicycle, which would be nearly priceless. since they are sought by both bicycle and motorcycle people.

I have cast parts to replace the worn rubber on my "bow" pedals now I want to find a material that is close to the original. Any idea how to determine the hardness or composition of them?
