AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Predator Aero?! posted by: ByStickel on 1/26/2005 at 6:43:23 PM
I have a chrome schwinn BMX frame with the round Schwinn Chicago head badge. It's built with Tange Aero tubing throughout, brazed on seat binder, and nice Tange Track dropouts. The decals are gone, unfortunately.

Is this a Predator Aero? (I THINK that's what it is.)

i just recently picked up a late 80's dyno compe, and im just wondering if anyone knows if you can still get the original sticker set, most of the parts on it are orignal, the bars,neck,forks,crank, and brakes are all original, the paint it a lil rough, and the big downtube decal is unfortunately gone so id really like to restore it to its original set up, and hopefully find original parts, so if anyone has any info or knows of any suppliers, drop me an email, thanks and happy new year to all

WANTED:   Shimano DX bottom bracket and info posted by: Brett Lipeles on 12/31/2004 at 6:38:35 PM
I recently purchased a set of Shimano DX cranks NOS in the box. These are the beauties from sometime between 1980 and 1985 with the adjustable length crank arms. They are missing the bottom bracket bearing cups and bearings, but the splined BB spindel is there. Does anyone know whether there are compatible bottom brackets out there? Does anyone have any advice on bottom bracket set-up or happen to have a bottom bracket that I might purchase? Please let me know.

Thank you very much for your help.

AGE / VALUE:   Mongoose Blue Max posted by: Derek on 12/29/2004 at 2:33:49 PM
I have a Mongoose blue max that I have had since i was 6-7yrs old, Im 31 now. So I have had the bike for roughly 24-25yrs. I want to know how to find out what year it is? Someone said something about under neath on the crank hub area on the frame there are numbers, is this correct? Who can decifier them for me? The bike came with Moto Mag II rims, are they worth anything?. I converted the bike from BMX to freestyle when i was in middle school. It now has Peregrine Master rims on it, Mike Diamagez handle bars, and lots of other freestyle items.Dia comp brakes, odysse gyro. Can someone point me in the direction to find out how old it is, what it might be worth. Thanks for your time.
