FOR SALE:   WTB: Boy's Stingray Frame posted by: brent on 5/23/2000 at 1:13:00 PM
Does anyone have a stingray frame laying around that they would sell for around $45-50 shipped? I've been watching for one on ebay, but they all go too high by the time you figure in shipping. Thanks.

I've got one. I'll dig it out and determine what year it is and let you know - unless year isn't important. I remember it has been stripped and currently is in primer.

   RE:FOR SALE:   WTB: Boy's Stingray Frame posted by brent on 5/24/2000 at 7:18:02 AM
Any year is fine. I always wanted a Stingray of my own. When I was a kid and would visit my grandparents, I could ride one that my cousin kept there. Nothing fancy, just a plain red with yellow trim stingray. Now, I found a Fair Lady with a beat frame that I thought I would swap the parts across from. Thanks.






MISC:   Huffy Girls Banana seat posted by: DB on 5/23/2000 at 9:18:40 AM
Found a girls Huffy w/banana seat and no other obvious identifying info. How do I go about dating it,etc.


   RE:MISC:   Huffy Girls Banana seat posted by DB on 5/23/2000 at 12:32:21 PM
Additional info found. It is the Cactus Flower and has yellow plastic handle bars with the words Hunt Wilde.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Huffy Girls Banana seat posted by Jeff on 5/24/2000 at 5:22:06 AM
I assume you mean plastic hand grips, not plastic handlebars.

I've never seen a Huffy date chart, but I's guess that if it has steel fenders it is pre-1980. If the fenders are plastic it is post-1980.

FOR SALE:   Murray Eliminator posted by: rsa on 5/23/2000 at 8:45:23 AM
I just found a Murray Eliminator F5 Mark 1. I am not a bicycle collector, so I'd appreciate any information I can get about its age, rarity, value, etc. It is a 5-speed with handbrakes. Color is orange/gold with metalflake banana seat. Has a tall sissy bar on it. Original redline tires. Condition is near excellent. Thanks for the help.


   RE:FOR SALE:   Murray Eliminator posted by Jeff on 5/24/2000 at 5:25:56 AM
There are pictures of a couple Eliminators in the picture database. If the bike is clean and complete and has a top tube shifter I would guess it would go for around $350.

I have a Schwinn Deluxe Twinn bike. I recently have made the decision to sell it and would like to have some idea as to what it is worth. The serial number is: EG051465 it is all original in good condition with the original Schwinn baby seat attached. It is copper tone in color and is in riding condition. My teens ride it all the time. Please help me with an estimate of what it is worth. I really want it out of my basement.


   RE:MISC:   Schwinn DeLuxe Twinn posted by Jeff on 5/24/2000 at 5:27:29 AM
You need to give more information:

Exact tire size (26" x 1 3/4"?)
How many speeds?
Drum brakes?

   RE:RE:MISC:   Schwinn DeLuxe Twinn posted by Tym on 5/26/2000 at 6:32:04 PM
Jeff, thank you for responding to my posting. The bike is a 5 speed, it has (26"x 1 3/8"} original Schwinn tires, drum brakes and chrome ball horn with the 3 horns on the end. The baby seat is also an original Schwinn seat. The entire bike is all original and has almost always been stored inside in the garage or the basement. If you want to know anything else please let me know! Thanks again for your help it is greatly appreciated. Tym
