FOR SALE:   Misc Raleigh Sprite 27 parts posted by: Bryant on 9/11/2002 at 10:12:46 AM
I am parting out a Raleigh Sprite 27 that had a hole in the frame. The bike was coffee brown and many if not all the parts have the Raleigh stamp on them. Wheels are in okay shape, both have the oiler hole in the hub covered by a sliding metal sleeve. There are some big rust spots on the rims that I touched up with chrome paint. The back wheel is in better condition and comes with Maillard freewheel and Sturmey Archer spoke protector. The front is probably good for only the hub. The cranks are in excellent shape, but I only have one pin remaining, the other died in removal. I also have the bottom bracket with the adjustable cup. Fenders are complete with some rust and scratches but look pretty good. The Huret derailleurs are okay, with some rust on the rear, shifters and cable stops are fine. Brakes, levers, handlebars stem and butterfly kickstand are on Ebay already. E-mail me if you want anything.

Luke,
The fender is yours for $5 and shipping. I hate breaking up the pair so if you want the rear also, it will be $7.50 and shipping. Contact me by emil at bdebruyne@att.net. My email to you was returned as undeliverable. Remember these fenders were from a bike with 27in wheels (Hence the Sprite 27).






MISC:   Ross Fat-Tire MB Mid 1980's posted by: S.F.Chris on 9/11/2002 at 8:38:56 AM
Does anyone out there know anything about this bike?
It was a 20" or 21" steel/alum frame, painted black with gold trim. Hardware was japanese (I think). Tires were fat and knobby, with gum walls, made in China. Rims were gold annodized. It had 18 gears. Bars were wide and nearly straight, chrome, with a cross-bar welded in for extra strenght. Brakes were old center-pull style.
I had this bike when it was new and a sensation with its huge (for the times) balloon-like tires and strong lines. I bought it on a whim and loved it, without geeking about every detail. Now I've lost it and would LOVE to obtain an exact replacement, but I find I don't know the pertinent info, e.g.
"What model was it?" "What size was the frame?" "What size were the tires?" What were the measurements of the handlebars?" etc., etc.
No one around here seems to know what model I'm talking about, or where I could begin my search. Can someone out there help me???
Thank you, and for God's sake, L-O-C-K your bike, now matter how old it is, no matter how short a time you'll be gone, and no matter where you are. I thought I was WELL past the time when someone would steal THAT bike. Wrong.
I can't tell you how bad it feels to not have my horse of 17 years..
"You ain't miss the water til the well run dry"

Thanks again,
-- Chris in S. F.

Chris, Ross was the badge of the Chain Bike Corporation, which made mild-steel frames in Pennsylvania after most of the competition was coming from the far east. Their upper echelon models used good Shimano parts. I would guess you could find something comparable and equally satisfying from most any manufacturer from the period. I put a lot of happy miles on my late 70s Shimano-600-equipped Ross road bike without noticing it was a carefully designed imitation of similar machines with lighter frames.

Looking for info on a Monark El Camino. Any info would be appreciated! The bike is good shape and is for sale.


   RE:FOR SALE:   Monark El Camino posted by Joel on 9/10/2002 at 3:18:26 PM
Huffy bought Monark in the mid 50s. The El Camino probably a 60s era Huffy.

   RE:FOR SALE:   Monark El Camino posted by National Bicycle History Archive of America on 9/22/2002 at 8:22:37 AM
Huffy did not "buy" Monark in the "mid 50s". This did not happen until the end of the 1950s and even then, it was only for SOME of Monark's productions. Monark bicycles continued to be made (yes, primarily by Huffy) well into the 1960s. As for the El Camino, it was made as a model name for many years. There is no way to ID such a bicycle without actually seeing it.
