AGE / VALUE:   Evans Interceptor - 100 posted by: Brian on 5/31/2007 at 11:11:45 AM
I recently came across an "EVANS" 26" girls bike in good condition. It is an Interceptor-100. Can anybody provide any info about EVANS bicycles. It was made in Michigan - I believe.

AGE / VALUE:   10 speed Hiawatha? posted by: Susan on 5/26/2007 at 3:47:10 PM
I bought a bike at a yard sale. I didn't get to talk to the owner but was told it is a 71 or 72. It is a 10 speed with the gear shifts on the frame of the bike not the handle bars. It has a Hiawatha sticker on the front and a Gamble sticker below the seat. The tires are rubber. I'm not interested in value or anything, I'm just trying to figure out what this bike is. I can't find anything that says Hiawatha ever made a 10 speed. I don't know much at all about bikes except that I thought this one was cool and it seems to only need new tires and brake cables. It is a 27in man's bike near as I can tell. Thanks for any info you all could provide. I don't have a pic yet but I'll try to get one soon.

Hiawatha was the store brand for Gambles Hardware Stores. Compnaies made their products with the Hiawatha name on them to be sold by Gambles. There are Hiawatha guns, ammunition, outboard motors, bicycles, etc. I have seen lots of Hiawatha bikes, probably because there was a Gambles here in my hometown. Your 10 speed was probably built by Panasonic or some other company. You might get a clue from the components. Are the brakes, derailleurs and hubs made in Japan?

AGE / VALUE:   1890s? Massey "Silver Ribbon" posted by: Scott on 5/24/2007 at 8:40:07 PM
I recently acquired a Massey "Silver Ribbon". The headbadge wraps around the head tube. It has wooden rims. It has twin top bars(motorbike style). Has anyone heard of this make? I'm assuming it's the Massey of Massey-Harris. It was built in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I don't have pics yet but will get them up here asap. Thanks.

I too have pulled a Massey Silver Ribbon out of the attic, wooden rims and all. I enjoy restoring old things, including myself. Perhaps with a little chatter here, someone in the Canadian antique bike biz might respond. I highly supect it is more nostalgia value than anything else but hey, I have been wrong before. It would be nice to learn the true colour of these beasts. I believe mine is the green that they painted their Wallace tractors before they went red with the Massey Harris colours that I am familiar more with. Also to find out a dating pattern would be nice. I doubt these go back to the 1890's but I bet mine was built in the 1920's. When I get this cleaned up, I will take some pics and display them.

AGE / VALUE:   What is this...? posted by: John on 5/24/2007 at 4:44:28 PM
Recently aquired very good condition ladies bike - it says "Jaguar" on the gooseneck tube - and "First Class" on the seat tube... sticker w/ Made In Western Germany. Single speed, coaster brake w/ left hand front brake, mud guards, reflector... I think all the stuff it came with, incl. squeeky spring seat... can anyone tell me if this is of any value as I cannot find it on the web (everything Jaguar says Schwinn) Thanks!

I have no idea what your bike is, but I believe I have one like it. Mine is a boys 3 speed. It has been painted, but I can read First Class on the seat tube, and the rims and rear hub all say made in Germany. It is very tall, looks like it would be a comfortable ride for someone well over 6 feet. Tires are 26 x 1 3/8.
