MIDDLEWEIGHT:   basket posted by: charlene on 5/23/2007 at 12:44:50 PM
I just bought a Sears Mainliner for a good price to use as my commuter bike. it's in pretty good shape and I don't want to destroy it but I need a basket. I'm used to handlebar ones but the tank and lights get in the way any suggestions for a rear basket.I love this bike and I'd hate to get rid of it because it's not doing what it was made to do.

There are also smaller size metal handlebar mounted baskets that will clear the headlight, and wicker ones too.

Hi Henry,
I removed 2 from a Schwinn B6 that I was working on and replaced them with new ones. I will sell the pair for $20. I will send pics if you are interested.
Thanks,
John

I have a used pair that would probably work fine for display, but I doubt they would be suitable for riding.

AGE / VALUE:   What do I have? posted by: Lara Edwards on 5/21/2007 at 6:32:48 PM
My husband and I have recently come by a vintage bike that we think is from the fifties. It is called a Roadmaster Skyrider Deluxe. I would like to know what the estimated value of a bike in goood to very good condition is. We would like to refurbish this and possible sell it. Everything is original and it has been garage kept.

We would need a picture to estimate value. It depends on condition and how the bike is equipped, acessories etc. If you are going to be selling and it is in good to very good condition I would advise leaving it alone. Collectors want an unmolested bicycle unless you are experienced in restoration. The only thing I would suggest doing is to wash it with a liquid car wash. Even using polish may cause unseen damage like removing pin strips and graphics.

MISC:   Coaster brakes posted by: Ken Osentoski on 5/21/2007 at 4:36:27 PM
I have a 1954 Schwinn bike. I have taken the rear axle, coaster brake apart and am not sure how to put it back together. I need an illustration of the order in which the parts are to be put back together. Help!

Pick up a copy of Glenn's Complete Bicycle Manual at a used book store. It has all kinds of info on overhauling coaster brakes.
