MISC:   Occupied Japan folding bike posted by: Vivian on 8/2/2002 at 2:49:42 AM
My husband has a Road Puppy Japanese Folding Bicycle, made in Occupied Japan. The label says: Road Puppy PAT 181909 ETC SHIMURA SEIKI Co. LTD MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN

The seat is embossed: SHIMURA SEIKI CO., LTD MADE IN OCCUPIED JAPAN
He would like to sell it, but we have no idea of the value.

There is a small red light and a small green light on individual sides of the handlebar with a separate switch for each light. A driving light is mounted on the fork to handlebar so light turns with the handlebar. The generator is mounted on one side of the fork and is activated when switched against the tire. Lights and generator are all removable, if desired. There is a package carrier over the rear wheel.

The bicycle is in good mechanical condition. There is a small tear in the leather of the seat, and the bike has been professionally repainted but it is in impressive condition for its age.

Seat is adjustable from 24 to 35 inches above the ground. The bicycle is about four feet in length, and to top of handlebars is 40 inches from ground. In the folded position it is about 30 inches long, 13 inches wide and 22 inches high.

To fold, the handlebars fold down from the center, then it folds at the base of the handlebars. The seat goes down to 24 inches, pedal folds in, and the bicycle is hinged to fold in the middle, with a bolt on one wheel that clamps to the other to hold it securely in position. The weight is 42 pounds.

Any information would be appreciated. Thank you.

Mike,
I believe I have the same Model as you. I just aquired it at a Garage sale. It is a tri-wheel, Blue with white lettering, rear white basket. Any idea of how old it is and how much it is worth?

I have a bicycle that I cant identify. It has the Evanaction front end. This front end has jet engine like nacels with a swept wing mounted above it. I can send a photo to anyone who has a good chance to identify it.

I have searched the database photos and have not seen it.

MISC:   Question on Pricing posted by: John on 7/30/2002 at 6:26:36 PM
I have two Schwinn mountain bikes that I am trying to price before sale. One is a 1989 Schwinn Cimarron with full XT components. The orginial price was $1,100 for this bike. Does anybody have an idea what this bike is worth today. Second, I have a 1994 Schwinn Series Mountain bike. The orginal price on this bike was $1400.00. It is in perfect shape. Any pricing ideas would be apprecaited.

Thanks
John


   RE:MISC:   Question on Pricing posted by John on 7/30/2002 at 6:37:23 PM
Sorry, the Cimarron is in great shape and the 1994 is a Series 90 mountain bike.

   RE:MISC:   Question on Pricing posted by Chris Wegescheide on 7/30/2002 at 6:47:54 PM
John,

I used to work in a Schwinn dealer for about 10 yrs around that same time frame as the cimarron came out. At the time the Cimarron was a really nice ATB but that bike doesnt hold a candle to the ATB's today (especially if you have a "U" brake) The new shifting and brake systems are far superior than ten years ago.

I would say that your Cimarron could be sold for around 200 or maybe 250 if its in pretty good condition.
