It is a single speed, coaster brake, 26 X 2 inch wheels. I've gone through and changed the greese, trued the wheels and polished the chrome and paint. It is stock. I don't need it.

WANTED:   Parts is Parts - Need parts for Schwinn Twinn posted by: Katherine McNeil on 5/28/2000 at 8:36:19 AM
Hi,
I just bought a Schwinn DeLuxe Twinn frame. The serial # is GM 803806. I could not find this number listed on the Schwinn date page...so I don't know the exact year it was made. However, I do need the following...front rim, tire, fender, back fender, rim, and tire. I need the calapers front and back, 1 front handle bar grip, a goose neck, a set of peddles the number on the old ones is DBP 1124378, and a brake cable. the bike is a hot pink and the frame has the usual scrapes and stuff but chain guard and decales are in fantastic shape.
Katherine


   RE:WANTED:   Parts is Parts - Need parts for Schwinn Twinn posted by ART on 5/28/2000 at 7:05:07 PM
Katherine, it's a 1976, made in July...it's there in the charts. Reread it and I'll bet you'll figure it out. I have a yellow 76. I have a nine year old son, and to accommodate him I changed out the rear cranks, replaced them with smaller crank arms. Got a softer, fatter seat and dropped it at low as possible and it works great. I even used an old ahead set stem and bolted it to the frame below where he sits and cut off an old straight handlebar, added soft grips and now he has a set of pegs if he wants to just ride and not pedal.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Parts is Parts - Need parts for Schwinn Twinn posted by Katherine on 5/29/2000 at 12:14:45 PM
Thanks so much Art, yup...duh I figured it out. Gee it will be 24 years old in a month or so. I really need to scrape up some NOS parts to get it running. The frame is straight, not too many scrapes, but I want parts that are correct for the year, make, and model. The hard part will be getting the correct rims, especially the back one because it is a five speed and not coaster. So is there is anyone out there that has parts is parts to put this one together please email me...please...gosh I hate to beg.
Katherine

FOR SALE:   Whats the worth posted by: Chuck on 5/24/2000 at 5:50:46 PM
I have a 1960 red continental,1971 yellow Sports Tourer,1972
blue Supersport, and a metallic green 1972 varsity.They have
always been in our garage and kept polished and have new tires
on them. Are they worth anything?


   RE:FOR SALE:   Whats the worth posted by Jeff on 5/25/2000 at 5:20:50 AM
The Varsity might be worth $50. The others are worth $200-$350 if they are clean, complete, original men's models with large frames.

   RE:FOR SALE:   Whats the worth posted by jd on 5/25/2000 at 11:39:39 AM
Sounds a little high to me. (prices vary from place to place). The Continental is your best bike since it was made before the bike boom of the early 70s and the production numbers were much lower. The early lightweights are just beginning to increase in value (a few have sold on EBAY for $1-200). I would say the others would be worth less than $100, the varsity maybe $15-20.

   RE:FOR SALE:   Whats the worth posted by Kevin C. on 5/26/2000 at 6:03:32 AM
The Continental would definitely be worth something. A 1960 model would have the "suicide" shifter for the front chainrings, and those were made only a couple of years. I would guess $200 or so if in good condition with original paint and the large "knight's head" decal set.

i happen to have a yellow continental in my garage.
i haven't investigated serial numbers yet, but i know it's
yellow, needs some tires, and is too big for me.
the vintage should be about what you're looking for.

e-mail me if you're stil looking.
p.s. i live in minneapolis, if that matters.

WANTED:   Pre-war Carrier posted by: Randy on 5/23/2000 at 8:19:50 PM
I interested in finding a rack for my pre-war Western Flyer. The carrier is distinguished by the fact that it has a built in reflector at the rear, and this rack attaches to the top of the fender, as well as at the seat bolt and rear axle. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks, Randy
