| New Englanders....don't miss the swap - Mon 9/3 - Rt. 1 Seabrook, NH|
| I went to this swap some years ago, it was held in a bank parking lot and was a great meet very similar to the Somerville, MA "under the bridge" meets now a memory. It's unfortunate that Labor Day was picked for this meet as traffic is horrendous and frankly I from South Shore of Boston and a friend from Cape Cod would like to attend but do not relish the traffic headaches. Maybe there will be another meet in Seabrook in the fall?? paul|
| I have schwinn from the 30s and I'm able to put a standard 26" mt bike tire on it, but I also have a schwinn from the 60s and he wheel is a little bigger. Does anyone know the date that Schwinn started making the wheels bigger?|
| About 1955 Schwinn came out with the S7 rim that takes only a tire made specifically for an S7. The width of the tire is marked 1 3/4. In spite of what your math instructor may have told you, 1 3/4 is not the same as 1.75. A tire marked 1.75 will not fit a Schwinn S7 rim.|
| Hello! A great trip to the Goodwill today. What did I see out of the corner of my eye, but a vintage blue bike that needed someone to take it home and care for it. :-)|
I checked it out, the chain was good, free wheel good, Cogs all good, spokes all there, tires flat but good, fenders and rack good. So I gave the lady my $10 and took it home, scrubbed it up and found this out:
1. The brand is Tomos
2. Made in Yugoslavia
3. Dated at 1970 on the rear axle
4. Has coaster brakes and one handle bar brake.
5. One gear.
All I can find online about Tomos is that they make mopeds.
Please, does anyone have any information about this bike or the company that made them? Perhaps a value to the bike?
I can try to upload a picture if that would help.
Cheers from rainy and cold Washington!
|I hope the photo works this time!|
| I think you got a lot of bike for your ten bucks- but it won't appreciate significantly as an investment. Ride it with pride.|
| I am looking for tires for a recently restored Pope shaft drive bicycle with wooden rims. Also looking for another early project such as a Crescent or Victor|
| Try coker tire at www.cokertire.com|
| Assuming the rims are wooden and measure 28 inches a substitute for early glue on tubular are modern motocross 700C x 45, they should fit and provide a more flexible and safer ride. Just a thought!|
| sorry, senior moment I meant cyclocross not motocross!!|
