I have a womens 1954 Wasp and it has not been refurbished yet. It looks to have all original parts including the pedals. Does anyone know what I could presumeably sell this for if A) I sell as is, or B) I refurbish it?

Over the years, I've found that if you plan to sell immediately, do not refurbish, IMHO also if it's a valuable antique be it a bicycle, also leave as found, only restoration that might be wise is in the interests of safety: tires, brakes, tightening fittings........paul

Sounds Italian. The rims won't fold in half if you strike a fence post.

It was made by Evans in Plymouth Michigan in the late 50's or early 60's. The number 100 indicates it was the base model, with no frills.

I have a Roadmaster frame with serial number# D48084. It has the shockmaster springer fork and is crimped for use as whizzer. The whizzer motor is a "J" model which I believe is around 1948. Any way to determine the manufacture date of this frame?

Im wonnderin if anyone can give me info on an old columbia i just bought. It's painted olive drab and has remnants of white wording on the back fender. An H and an O are visible. The army drab appears to be the original color. There's no other under it. It's a 43 model, but there's a M in front of the G. Did Columbia furnish bicycles to the military during WWII? Oh yeah..the handle bar grips are even army green. Serial # is MG185749. It's really not in that bad of shape. Needs tires and tubes and bearings in the neck. Any info on sizes for those parts or value of the bike is appreciated.

I'm having a very difficult time locating tires for this bike. They're balloon tires 26x2.125. Anybody got any suggestions?
