Hello I am in need of some help figuring out what type of seatpost this is that I have from a long closed down Huffy dealer.
the seat post is normal except it has a bar welded to it with a mount.

AGE / VALUE:   Can't find serial # posted by: Chris on 1/23/2007 at 7:07:10 AM
Hi,
I just bought a girls Western Flyer. According to the info somewhere on this site, it says the WF's with the size tires on this makes it about a '57 WF. I cannot find the serial number in any of the usual places. This bike has been painted over and I've stripping it, but still can't locate it. Is it possible it was sanded off by whoever painted it, or are the serial numbers typically debossed in the metal. Where should I be looking especially close for this number?
Thanks,
Chris

I have one. They were Schwinns that the Boren Bicycle Co purchased (they MAY have assembled them in Arkansas, not sure) At any rate, they put on their own head badge. Mine is original and rideable. I have pictures. Other e-mail: trmatthews1@comcast.net

I've come across a nice female 3 speed Schwinn Racer. According to the serial number, it's a 1960 model. I thought about restoring it since there isn't really much that needs to be restored but I guess restoration isn't my thing. :-)

I'd like to sell it but I'm not sure what it's worth. I've included a link that has some pictures of the bike. How much do you think I could get for this bike?

For some reason the tidle in the links got replaced by a single quote. :-( Let me try again.

Oh, almost forgot, Always have the bike tuned up (bearings greased etc) before riding. So many people put air in the tires and take-off and then the bearings get ruined. Skip
