| Hello, I found a JC Higgins Girls bike with prewar skirt guards. Need front fender, pedals, hubs etc... and I'm wondering also, what kind of kickstand was used on these bikes? I have pictures and will post them as soon as they are developed.|
| JC Higgins were built after WWII. If your bike has pre-war skirts, it was probably built just after the war when they were using up the Elgin parts. I have run into similar bikes before.|
| I just acquired a Swiss Condor, I think from around 1960. It is not a military bike, but a roadster/city bike. It has odd fenders, kind of flat, and a lot of clearance from the tire. The rear fender has a row of holes running along the edge of each side, located about 1/4 inch from the edge and spaced around an inch or two apart. The holes go all the way along the edge on both sides up to about four inches from each end of the fender, and they are small, kind of spoke-hole sized. Does anyone know what these holes were for? Thanks!|
| It's for a string skirt guard that goes to a bracket on the rear hub axle nut. So the ladies do not get their skirts caught in the rear wheel.|
Big thing back in the day, different patterns.

| I recently picked up this bike Western Flyer with Grand Trophy on the chain guard.The frame and fenders are red with white pin stripes on the fenders.Tires are 26x2.125.On the frame at the neck are the numbers HC2394245.It has very little rust on the handle bars and tiny bit on frame.Can someone tell me best way to remove this?Also any info on this bike greatly appreciated.Year?Value perhaps?|
| Lightly rub rusty chrome parts with brass or bronze wool not steel wool, steel wool puts fine scratches on chrome. Brass wool is available from marine supply or Bennys Hardware stores in Southern New England |
| I read on the web it's just not wise to give out the serial numbers of your bicycle.Only use what u need to know month & year such as a first or second letter depending on make of bicycle,some might do that differently.gl|
