WANTED:   Old spoke lights posted by: Zena De Haven on 6/4/2001 at 2:44:59 PM
Hi, I hope someone can help me. I am looking for the old half moon green and red lights that hook onto the spokes of a bike that run on a flash light battery in the dark. You hook them on with a screw to tighten them and make connection for the light to come on, and when you ride the bike and the tires go round, they show green and red. My father had them in the 50's and 60's in New York and now cannot find them. Anyone who has any for sale or know's the correct name of them, please e-mail me.

FOR SALE: Schwinn S-7 20" & Cheater Slick posted by: Tom on 6/1/2001 at 6:07:39 AM

You can see them here:

http://people.ne.mediaone.net/robotstalk/images/musclebike

The S-7 has some light surface peppering. It is not too bad and would look fine on a rider. It has a Bendix 76 coaster hub with 28 holes. (Make Offer, S&H @ $6.00/US48)

Cheater slick is in nice shape but the letters need touch-up with a tire stick. It looks like someone tried to already with shoe polish! Some cleaning between the letters needs to be done. Rubber is soft & pliable with no cracks. (Make Offer, S&H @ $4.50/US48)
