| Does anyone know what model this JC Higgins is? It has no decals ro headbadge on the frame and there are holes in the steering tube - I'm assuming for attaching a tank. I would like to get the right accessories for it (tank, rack etc) but I have no idea what model it is.|
Also, any ideas about its value?
| Look in the picture database to determine the model.|
The price guide here lists over 20 JC Higgins bicycles
| Thanks, already checked both databases. None of the JC Higgins listed have the same frame / chaingaurd as mine. |
So, still trying to figure it out....
| Here's a better picture. |
Schwinn Any ideas model and year?
SERIAL # F283507
| That is a pre-war bike (older than 1940).|
Look in the picture database to determine model.
| That is a POST war bike. Schwinn bicycles made before WWII had rear facing drop outs. Skip tooth chain does not mean pre war, in fact they were still producing bikes with skip tooth chain in the early 1950's.|
| Could it be a 1939 LaSalle?|
| What's a rear facing drop out?|
| The dropout is the slot in the frame where the rear axle goes. On Schwinns built before WWII the slots faced the rear. On those built after WWII they face forward.|
| Any idea what i might ask for this unrestored in present condition? No rust bust just surface spots on rims and handlebars. Tires might need tubes. Thanks|
| 10/20/1949. Its as i suspected a 1950 model. I could use the fenders, chaingaurd and wheels. |
| I just saw a 1940 Schwinn Pioneer and my bike is the spitting image. Do you have a picture that you can send me of that 1950 Schwinn? |
| The 'F' represent the month of June; if you haven't done it yet, click on the serial # chart on thie site. Good luck!|
|Hello all you biking enthusiasts. I just picked up an old bike and I am at loss as year and model. I'm guessing 1939 or 1949. It's a Schwhinn-#F283507. Thanks any and all for help.|
| more likey a 1939 because it has a skiptooth chain|
| I'm looking for a "train light" for my 52' Monark Super Deluxe. Anyone have one for sale, or know where I should look? Thanks.|
| They are on e-bay every once in a while, but expensive.|
| when I was a kid I had a cool bike called "EVENS 500"|
anybody know anything about this bike
may want to buy one
| I'm guessing that you had an Evans Interceptor 500 from the late 50's. It was a 26" middleweight, cantilever frame, with the Car-Flite painted fenders, chrome rims with whitewall tires, the Flitestream chainguard, a chrome ball headlight and the chrome front carrier. It also had the Bendix 2-speed rear hub. You don't see them very often, so you'll have to keep an eye on Ebay or attend some of the bigger bike shows. In late April, there will be the Memory Lane and Ann Arbor shows, in northern Ohio and Michigan. Good luck in your search!|
