WANTED:   bike with dual bar top tube posted by: (miss) gerry roedell on 4/5/2001 at 5:32:02 PM
Hi! Can anyone out there please help me identify and then locate and purchase a twenty-inch bicycle like the one I used to have when I was a kid in the seventie's? Instead of the usual one round top tube, this bike has dual parralel bars running from close to the sprocket to the handlebars. If I sound like I don't know that much about bikes, it's because I don't. But I loved this bike and want it back. I want to find one and restore it, then take it for a spin. Any information is greatly appreciated. I have a picture if anyone is interested.

FOR SALE:   Repop Glitter Vinyl Krate Toolbags posted by: Matt on 4/4/2001 at 7:30:17 PM
I finally got around to getting these glitter vinyl krate toolbags made. They are cut out and being sewn together over the next 2 weeks, just in time to take a batch out to the Memory Lane and Ann Arbor shows. I'm going to have available the following:

Red Glitter with White Trim
Orange Glitter (Original Color) with White Trim
Yellow Glitter (Original Color) with White Trim
Blue Glitter with White Trim
Purple Glitter with White Trim
Silver Glitter with Black Trim
Silver Glitter with Green Trim
Plain White with Black Trim
Plain Black with White Trim

They will have nickel plated buckles and twist fasteners, but no other markings of any kind. If a person was enterprising....they might take a seat tag off of an old Schwinn 10 Speed seat and rivet it to their new bag.....not that I would advocate that in any way....They are the exact same dimensions as the original krate toolbags.
I'm asking $45.00 plus shipping for all colors except orange glitter and yellow glitter, they will be $50.00 plus shipping. Let me know if you're interested.
Thanks,
Matt







WANTED:   Mavic gel 280 rims posted by: Jim Winkelman on 4/4/2001 at 10:50:32 AM
Hi anyone else love their Mavic GEL 280's?
I got hit and bent both front and back rims.
I tryed to pull the wheels apart and straighten the
rims but I can't get them true without making the spoke
tension way to high in spots. Is there a source?
I tryed the reflex rims but there just not the same.
I need a 28 hole and a 32 hole.








WANTED:   Need Clement Del Mondo tires posted by: Jim Winkelman on 4/4/2001 at 10:46:08 AM
I'm looking for some Clement Del Mondo Servizio Corse tires.
I built up a set of the wooden rims that performace sold a few
years ago for one of my road bikes. I bought 4 of the tires from
Oschners and then let them sit around for a while. I just moved
to Oregon and the chip seal is rough on the hands using 19mm
tires, even tubulers, so I gave them a try. Boy I could kick myself
for waiting so long to use them. Guess they knew what they were doing.
Long story short Clement went out of business and I'm out of luck
finding any more. Is there a source of NOS Clements or is there
someone making a tire the same size 700c X 32mm?

MISC:   J.C.Higgins Rear hub posted by: David Miller on 4/3/2001 at 4:36:39 PM
I have a chrome J.C.Higgins rear hub that is rather unique. It appears to have several vent type wings that run completely around the hub... Any ideas? Thanks David


   RE:MISC:   J.C.Higgins Rear hub posted by Gordon on 4/4/2001 at 5:39:44 AM
That hub is usually refered to as the Elgin finned hub. There is a matching front one as well. If yours says JC Higgins, it was probably put on a bike right after WWII. Sears bikes before the war were sold as Elgins and after the war were JC Higgins. I have run across several early Higgins bikes with Elgin parts. I'm sure they were just using up old stock as they started building bikes again.

   RE:RE:MISC:   J.C.Higgins Rear hub posted by JOEL on 4/4/2001 at 6:50:05 AM
Yes...waat Gordon said. They are also called air-cooled hubs. Made by Musselman.

I have a Schwinn 26" double straight bar frame. I am trying to learn the age and model that the bike was. Any help would be appreciated. The serial #'s are on the rear of the bike.

sounds like a tornado if the two bars are running side by side

OR
INFO ON WHERE TO FIND ONE... PREFERABLY USED.

MANY THANKS, CHRISTIAN GAGGIA-- GOATBASKET@YAHOO.COM


   RE:WANTED:   Trike conversion kit posted by Jim Winkelman on 4/4/2001 at 11:11:31 PM
Here is the address of a guy in England that makes the kits you are looking for.
http://www.longstaffcycles.co.uk/ They are high end type parts and not cheep.
If you just want to build a knock around trike you can buy the parts for the rear
axle of a Miami Sun adult trike and they will bolt onto most
road bike frames with a little work. The Miami Sun parts are very heavy and will
add up to about $200 by the time you get what you need. Its cheeper to look in
the paper and buy a complete used bike. Good luck.
