i just picked up a schwinn middleweight frame from an old shop that was closing down, it's a 24 inch boys bike i checked the serial number out and all i could find out was that it was stamped in november 71' it has it has the mounts on the frame for a derailer and a chain ring like i see on most stingrays i know its not a mantaray i think maybe a spitfire or maybe typhoon? if anyone could tell me a way to find out anymore from the serial number it would be greatly appreciated lg017188

AGE / VALUE:   Columbia Superb posted by: Danny Brown on 1/7/2007 at 10:27:28 AM
I have purchased a matching set of balloon bikes. They are Columbia Superb's. I am thinking they are reproductions but I cant figure out when they were made or their restored value. They have excellent paint with a lot of light to heavy rusting on the chrome. I am curious as to the value as they exist vs restored. The mens bike serial number is 8-055-0373 and the model I think is 41 F9T. This number appears below the serial number on the frame. Thank You.

AGE / VALUE:   "Roamer" by D.P.H. Mfg. Co. posted by: Mark Watson on 1/6/2007 at 8:55:58 AM
I have a bike called "Roamer" by D.P.H. Mfg. Co. as stated on the bikes badge. It is mostly intact except for the front rim and fender mounted headlight which has been replaced with new aftermarket replicas. I place the age of this bike at around 1927 based on the sprocket pattern and the shape of the frame mounted tank that opens from the side. The bike has the original rear wheel kick stand, chain guard, glass reflector on rear fender, seat, fenders and handle bars. The paint is not original but I do believe it used to be red with white pin strips on fenders.The badge is in good shape. In my research of this bike I did not find much info. I have pictures but I do not have a web site. Can anyone offer some background on my find?

the Wheelmen www.thewheelmen.org say D. P Harris Hardware and Manufacturing Co., New York. No dates given, but the company presumeably predates 1918 per their site.

It has a Cleveland Welding Shockmaster springer fork, so it could be a Roadmaster as Roger suggested, or it could be a Hawthorne or a Hiawatha.
