I'm from Brazil and just bought a BSA Bike. I'm looking for some information on this Bike, but I still did not find anything in the Internet.
| BSA made millions of bikes in different models. You need to provide details and pictures in order to get information.|
| You might try Marcelo---at least he's colser to your part of the world.|

| Oi Gustavo,|
Sabes que 'BSA' significa 'Birmingham Small Arms' - Uma fabrica Inglesa que construidar as pistoletas, os motos, as bicicletas ... desde de mais or menos 1880
| I have a women's and a men's matching Steyr 3 speeds. Not manufactured for Sears, but have Steyr labels. Hubs have Styria 3 Gang stamped. Frames stamped - Made in Germany. Olympic labels on the seat stem, so I am assuming date maybe from 1972. Any info appreciated. |
| Selling 73 Raleigh Sports, I listed it under vintage lightweights by mistake. Can send pics to anybody interested. New tires, tubes, has pump for looks only, long seat post and tool bag. Thanks & happy trails.|
| I have a 9 speed Raleigh Sports bicycle. What seems to makes it unique is that not only does it have 3 speeds in the axle but also 3 additional sprockets on the axle operated from a handle on the frame. I have owned the bike for 30 years and it was old when I got it. It has the original paint with all decals and metal emblems. The serial number is under the seat on the frame, it is 9878RA. Does anyone have information as to the age and if applicable the value.|
| It's either a 1954 or 1955. Check the Sturmey 3 speed hub date to confirm.|
| I'm not very good on the technicals of hubs etc., but this might be a sturmey / cyclo combination. A friend of mine managed, carefully, to combine a sturmey hub and a very narrow five speed cassette plus high - low rings at the front giving a very large range of gears.|
Matthew - my first post this year.
| Matthew is right - the 3 speed derailer system is most likely a Cyclo conversion, probably done in the mid to late '60s.|
Say, Matthew, have you seen Sheldon Brown's OTB? A 64 speed monster - 3X7X3. I dare say that with a TA 6 pin quad crankset (yes, TA's 'Cyclotouriste' was available with four rings!), he could have a whopping (and unnecessary) 84 speeds. Imagine if he put an S5 in there then...
P.S.: That's 140 speeds with an S5!
| I have '58 Lenton Gran Prix Reg Harris model 531 main frame all original with Steel FM 4 speed close ration S.A. hub and 3 cluster derailer Cyclo Benelux with single chain wheel up front(Williams) Brooks B-16, Weinemanns, Britannia plastic fenders, original tape and plugs 27 by 1 and 1/4 steel Dunlop rims......12 speed 22 inch club style bicycle with fabulous graphics unmolested original paint.....am selling for $350 all original except tires and tubes Thanks for looking! paul (will deliver eastern MA area).|
| Looking for a frame pump for a green 70's Raleigh Supurbe.|
| Greetings Deric,|
By the 70's, frame pumps were not specific to colour or model of the bicycle. They sell the correct frame pump on this website for about $20.
Hope that helps, sir!

| True.. but only the US market. The UK and European market Royals and Superbes continued to have frame colour matched pumps well into the 1970s and indeed early '80s.|
| Oh sure! They send US the non-matching pumps. :-S|
Thanks Mr. Kohler... I woulda never thunk it.
Happy New Year!

| Worse, they stopped sending us the bikes! The classic, fully "loaded" Raleigh Superbe was available in the UK and Denmark and elsewhere at least as late as 1992. And in the classic colours: Raleigh Green, Rudge Maroon and Humber Blue. And yes.. with matching pumps! You'll find these on eBay UK quite often, many in amazing like new condition. I think they were last sold as the Raleigh "Royale".|
