Jackson Saddles made a nice one just like that, covered in leather. Unfortunately, they may have gone out of business, as their website doesn't seem to exist any more. There's a photo of their saddle at:

MISC:   LaSalle" posted by: Todd Hansford on 12/4/2002 at 6:18:44 PM
I have an old "LaSalle" bicycle, has anybody ever heard of this model bike and how rare is it?
Thanks,

Todd


   RE:MISC:   LaSalle posted by Mike Stone on 12/4/2002 at 6:20:12 PM
I don't have a lot of details, but I will tell you what I know:

La Salle was made in the early 1900's - probably around 1920's. Your bike is almost certainly not later than the early 1940's.

I THINK that LaSalle was actually a brand produced by either Schwinn, Columbia, or Pope. Help me out with this one, guys.

If I remember correctly, the headbadge shows LaSalle landing near a river and meeting Indians. I have a LaSalle headbadge around here somewhere...

WANTED:   stems, seatpost posted by: Lincoln on 12/4/2002 at 12:35:38 AM
Anyone looking to get rid of parts resembling the following?

1. Slightly higher than standard stem for a beater bike ('65 Hawthorne/Monkey Ward). Cheap steel would be best. Existing stem dia seems to be .860" to .865" (21.8 to 22.0 mm), inside of fork measures .87" to .88" (22.1 to 22.3mm) but that's hard to measure well, at least with my calipers. Bars seem to be 1" dia at the clamp.

2. At least 12" long .855" dia (21.7mm) steel seatpost for above. (aluminum ok if cheep). Seat tube measures maybe .86" (21.8mm) ID. I may just shim a steel pipe as I have a +.024" shim and the pipe I've measured is about .840" dia., but I'd rather do it right.

3. Slightly higher than standard stem for circa 1980 Fuji. 1" (25.4mm) bar dia, fork measures about .87" (22.1mm)inside, existing stem .855" to .860" (21.7 to 21.8mm)

THanks

WANTED:   Mechanical speedometer posted by: Dave on 12/3/2002 at 4:15:24 PM
Anyone know where I can buy (other than ebay) a mechanical (cable-driven) speedometer, preferrably NOS? Nothing rare, just a plain ol' speedometer. Thanks.


   RE:WANTED:   Mechanical speedometer posted by JimW. on 12/4/2002 at 8:44:10 PM
Probably the cheapest source of mechanical speedos is your neighborhood thrift store. Old exercycles are frequently fitted with them, and you can usually get the whole exercycle cheaper than you could buy the same speedo on eBay. Old Schwinn exercise bikes have them, usually Stewart-Warners, and Sears models have the same speedo as the CCM musclebikes had.

We bought a CCM speedo on eBay, for our kustom recumbent trike. When it arrived, we discovered that it came without the sender which mounts to the wheel, and the cable. We went to a local Goodwill store and found a Sears exercycle with the same speedo, complete with sender and cable for $3.75. Needless to say, we paid a lot more for the incomplete speedo. If the cable's not long enough for your needs, auto parts stores sell replacement cables which can be made to work. That's what we did, as we needed to have the rear wheel drive the speedo.

FOR SALE:   Gitane Grand Sport Deluxe posted by: Lincoln on 11/30/2002 at 8:47:34 PM
Gitane, 10 speed, green mixte (i.e. sort of women's) frame,
needs skinny 27" tires,maybe grease pedals,
otherwise seems in good mechanical shape (I rode
it back from the neighbor's trash). I'd guess frame
equivalent to 20" or so. A nice bike for just riding
around or if you need to leave at the train station.
If you poke around you can get tires like this for less
than $10 apiece. Hope to sell locally (just west of Boston)
and avoid shipping.


   RE:FOR SALE:   Gitane Grand Sport Deluxe posted by Bryant on 12/3/2002 at 5:16:36 PM
Hey, I have one of those also. Just fixed it up. Had to swap out the stem and front derailleur (Simplex Plastic broke) but it works and just been overhauled. Full fenders and a frame pump, large frame for a mixte (23 1/2in). I'm in the Baltimore Area if anyone is interested. $40 no shipping

WANTED:   28" wheel, Raleigh, etc., roadster posted by: Dale Sutthoff on 11/30/2002 at 6:13:04 PM
Years ago I had a Raleigh with extra large wheels, 28 or 30" I think. Best ever as I am pretty tall and felt the larger size fit better. Are any bikes made today with the larger wheel size? Or should I be looking for only that model as a used bike. This is just for touring and general exercise. I just turned 65 and finally have a little time on my hands.


   RE:WANTED:   28 posted by Robert on 11/30/2002 at 8:47:31 PM
Dale,
you might ask the English roadster group. It sounds as though that is what you're after.
Robert

   RE:WANTED:   28 posted by Tonto on 12/3/2002 at 1:50:57 AM
I kid you not, in the last several, issues of Bicycling magazine, one of the bikes reviewed is a Gary Fisher Mountain Bike with 28" wheels, brand new bike. Be on the look out for this, ask a dealer or find a website, if any great interest is in this, I will hunt the article down, but it is again, Mountain.
