AGE / VALUE:   Evans Colson Cutlass posted by: Bob Ratcliff on 6/29/2006 at 2:51:26 AM
I have an older bike, I was trying to find out some information about it. I found a little bit, but I was hoping someone could help me. It's an Evans Colson and the chain guard says Cutlass. It seems like it's in pretty good condition, the paint isn't too bad. I was wondering what it might be worth and just a little bit about the company. Thanks.

BALLOON:How to determine tire size/type? posted by: Justin on 6/27/2006 at 7:36:48 PM
Hi,
I'm a bicycle nut and newbie vintage bicycle nut and I'm trying to get all of the vocab down. Can someone tell me how to tell Balloon vs regular tires? I know it's the size, but I've got an old rusty bike I picked up this weekend that has no tires. How can I tell from the frames the type/size tires I'd need for it? It's a Murray and says Galaxy Flyer (can't find much info on the web) on the chain guard. Thanks for any help.

Sorry to reply to my own post but I was able to barely see the wording on the decal on this bike. It says Flying O Otasco so it must be a Murray built for Otasco. Still don't know what model though. The chain guard says Galaxy Flyer. The serial # was pretty rusty but I think it is N075010-068168991. Any info on the bike and/or my tire question I'd appreciate it.

There is a Tire and Rim chart on this site under the General Resources section.
Basically, balloon tires have a width of 2.125 and middleweight tire have a width of 1.75 or 1 3/4.

MIDDLEWEIGHT:Ladies Hawthorne Tank w/horn posted by: Chris on 6/25/2006 at 8:32:40 PM
I picked up a Ladies Hawthorne yesterday at a garage sale for $25. I am not sure of the year, but a Michigan Bicycle Registration sticker on the back fender is dated 1960. Serial number is A95838 52CW. It is a beautiful old bike, but is missing the front light. I opened the tank this morning and it looks like all of the wiring and horn is in great shape. Not sure of which battery would do the trick to test it. Bike looks to be all original except for back tire. I can get photos if that would help.I am not sure of the year and any help would be appreciated!
