MISC:   Studebaker posted by: Steve on 9/4/2003 at 5:27:37 AM
anyone ever heard of a studebaker trike made in the 50's. I assume by the same company that made the cars. I saw one at a pawn shop a while back, the guy had no clue what it was worth, so he priced it high at $250 (or is that low?). condition was typical for something 50 years old, but complete.


   RE:MISC:   Studebaker posted by JC on 9/5/2003 at 12:52:46 PM
Never heard of a Studebaker trike, but I do know that any bicycles with auto or motorcycle branding command a decent price from auto collectors who're looking for something unique to show with their cars and motorcycles. Think Triumph, Cadillac, BSA, Lincoln, Harley-Davidson, etc etc.

WANTED:   Mesinger Bicycle Seat posted by: Brenda on 9/2/2003 at 6:44:12 PM
I just acquired a 1950's Hawthorne girl's bike. It needs some work. One pedal is orignal, the other is not. Chrome needs restoring, etc. The seat has a metal name plate that says Messinger. I don't know if the seat is leather or rubber. It needs patching or replacing. I have no idea where to start to fix up this bike. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.


   RE:WANTED:   Mesinger Bicycle Seat posted by gary m on 9/3/2003 at 2:09:19 AM
as with any project, where to start is nearly as hard as where to stop. i say fix it mechanically first so its a safe bike. then your at least economicly viable. ride it a bit and decide if this is your holy grail or a white elephant. nothing worse then to paint a frame and then find its got a pull to the left. and its not rare, nor will ever command big dollars, i get them free all the time. look for a nice deluxe machine in Schwinn to invest in. the name is the money, all the rest are old bikes. Western Flyer or Roadmaster also, Huffy, stick with what people know. i have a 48 Schwinn ladies here i got for free, is solid and cool, come get it free. no shipping sorry.

7 Hawthornes are in the Old Roads picture database, I've read about Hawthornes in books on the history of the american bike. Feel it might be in the same rungs of the ladder as Roadmaster. Hawthorne's ain't peanuts.
