MISC:   Trying to Identify posted by: Kelli on 6/16/2003 at 5:54:07 PM
Last year I purchased at auction a toddler's tricycle with attached wagon. At the time I had plans for it to be the perfect little flower pot.

Since displaying my find, it has created quite a bit of attention. Those that have noticed it think that I should be trying to perserve it from the element rather than exposing it to them.

I cannot find any information on my little discovery. There is no brand name left on its rusted frame though some of the solid rubber tires still remain. Does anyone know where I can begin to look for information regarding this item. It has raised my curiosity.

Thank you!!!!!!

I purchased a 1960's black with white hand painted lettering and racing stripes tandem JC Higgins bike from a garage sale. It's in great shape and we love it. I was wondering what the market value of such a bike is? Please drop me line if anyone knows?

Thanks, John







WANTED:   Shelby pics and parts and info posted by: susan littell on 6/16/2003 at 3:16:51 AM
Hello! i've just aquired an old "Shelby Flying Cloud' and have been searching for pics and info. so far have not found a picture exactly like mine. I dont know the age, i am thinking prewar, because it has painted steel rims, and no chrome, except for the handlebars, and im not sure if they are original, the style just doesnt seem quite right. this one is a ladies frame, has no tank, blue and red with white pinstriping, the badge on the front seems to be brass, with a picture of a sailing ship. i do believe one of the tires is original, U.S. Chain Tread? If any one can direct me to more info, i would greatly appreciate it, this is a charming bike, with a lot of character, and i would just love to restore it to its original glory. thank you, susan

Bob, your description isn't much help, but if you search the discussion archives here, you will find several threads referring to Royce Union.

the bike is a 26 inch 1 speed. it reminds me of bikes you would see in an old war movie. its a boys bike. it has 2 thin bars on the top of the frame, and a third thicker bar in the middle going from under the spring seat to the lower frame bar
thanks for your help bob

WANTED:   1949-51? J.C. Higgins Regal De Luxe parts posted by: Terri Lakosky on 6/15/2003 at 1:50:32 AM
I am in the process of restoring my mothers bicycle and want it to be perfect. I am missing:
One jewel on the tank, bracket is there, just jewel is missing.
two tail light reflectors, need entire bracket & jewels
Switch & plate for gas tank
Front fender light & generator, have (bent)bracket.
Back fender badge (that holds another reflector?)that goes under rear wheel bracket.
This bike is otherwise completely stock and original, other than an unfortunate coat of marine paint applied in the fifties.
I would also like to know if I should chrome the handlebars, pedal assembly and polish rims to a chrome look, Ive seen pictures of them cromed, but do not think this is original as the bike has a brushed aluminum front spring and think it was meant to be understated.The handlebars have some surface rust, so I can't tell what they were originally. The original paint was dark navy blue/silvery slightly blue paint with white pinstriping.
I will be glad to send pictures to anyone who needs them to see if they have the parts, or to nail down the year this beautiful bike was made.
You have me over a barrell as far as prices for parts, will entertain any and all offers, I really need to get this bike back on the road, it's the only real reminder I have of my mother, who passed some time ago. She used this bike to bring in the cows at night on a farm in northernmost Monnesota. I found it out behind the abandoned farm. Thank goodness this bike wasn't made of a rusting material,(even the handle grips are in good shape, a miracle in my mind).
Thank you for all your help, I searched the internet for many months looking for help in this matter. God bless you all.
Terri

bc


   RE:MISC:   Raleigh 410 posted by Stacey on 6/15/2003 at 10:34:26 AM
You found the 410 on a sticker on the seat tube, right? If that's the case 410 is the alloy of the steel tubing that the bike is made.

Look around the bike a bit more, perhaps on the top tube... for a model designator. Most likely it'son the lower end of the model line with that tubing. Not a bad frame set, I ride a Raleigh Capri which is made from that tubing. A bit on the heavy side as is, but a lot can be done to shed pounds to make a real sweet rider
