Hi
Just wondering whether you have a contact email address for this company - and whether you had to have the original mold for them to produce your grips???
I am a uk bicycle fan, and there is definately some demand for new grips of certain types over here!
please contact me on keyzkev @hotmail.com (just ignore the gap - cuts down on spam!)
cheers - keyzkev






WANTED:   1973 schwinn sports tourer posted by: big john on 3/15/2004 at 12:03:05 AM
im looking to buy a 1973 schwinn sports tourer
what can i expect to pay?


   RE:WANTED:   1973 schwinn sports tourer posted by Fred A on 3/15/2004 at 3:42:06 PM
Hi John

Well, I own two, both with 26''frames which fits my 6' frame perfectly. I wouldn't let either go for less than $500. These were just one drop below the Paramount at the time and are as scarce as anything I've ever looked for. One is green, the other orange.

What color are you looking at and what is the person asking?

   RE:RE:WANTED:   1973 schwinn sports tourer posted by Rick McGrath on 3/27/2004 at 11:52:22 PM
Hi John; Just saw this posting. I have a 1973 26" Schwinn Sports Tourer (Orange). I am the original owner. It even has the original tires and is still used during good weather. Have the original owners manual also with dealers price written on the front ($230.88) at that time assembled. In great condition. Leather saddle with small scrape on right side . Also handle bar wrap replaced with black foam slide on wrap. Small chrome fenders also, other wise all original equipment. Let me know if you are still in the market for one?

   RE:RE:WANTED:   1973 schwinn sports tourer posted by mark on 4/2/2004 at 3:23:44 AM
Dear John,
I have a 1973 or 1974 Orange Sports Tourer. Seat, rear cluster, tires, and shifters were changed. Everything else is original. Handlebar tape has some wear. Crank set,suntour derailers have no rust. I am in atlanta.

WANTED:   Canvas Bicycle Bags posted by: Cheri on 3/10/2004 at 8:38:09 PM
I am a woman gun collector and have several single shot 22 take-down boys rifles (bicycle guns). Am looking for information on the canvas bags or pouches that kids would put their guns into while riding their bikes. Can you please help me find out information on these vintage items or better yet, where can I locate one? Thanks in advance for your help and information! Cher Ryan


   RE:WANTED:   Canvas Bicycle Bags posted by Stacey on 3/11/2004 at 11:10:48 AM
OMG!!!! KIDS, BIKES & FIREARMS!?!?! What was wrong with parents then? Heaven forbid that theirchildren learn some responsibility. LOL

Cheri, of course you've exhausted the obvious sources... gun shows, estate sales, auction houses (I've seen a few take down .22's with canvas bag go at local auction houses this past year). There are also some onling firearm related auctions too... www.auctionarms.com/ & www.gunbroker.com/ are just a couple that come to mind. You could always try your hand at making or have a canvas shack make one for you by using one that you have as a pattern. Then there are always the fan sites for the take down .22's, they may be able to help.

Now to find a way to mount an M-50 behind the tailgate of my Plymouth Voyager... Tailgaters beware..1






FOR SALE:   F/S 1937 Elgin Boy's Ballooner - $200 + Shipping posted by: Matt on 3/10/2004 at 1:51:53 AM
Nice prewar bike ready for YOU to restore. No time for me, looking to sell it outright or trade it for a nice Fastback. Nice straight frame, tank, truss rods, chainguard, etc...some bends in braces/fenders that can be fixed. Nice Mesinger seat, somewhat dry with some wear on one edge, but very serviceable. BW Carlisle Lightning Darts, rear NOS, front nice used. Repop Elgin grips. Frontloader light still has glass lense!!! and the switch still moves!!!, not sure if it works, but it is very firmly mounted on fender and appears to have no acid damage like some lights. Missing one spoke on front wheel. Dropcenter rims are pretty straight with a very slight wobble in the front. Rear hub is Elgin air cooled, front is New Departure, however, I'll send a front Elgin air cooled along in the box. Nice art deco Torrington stem and handlebars. Dogleg crank. Rear dropstand and clip, super straight rack. Like I said, no time for me. I'll take $200 plus shipping or we can talk trades for Fastbacks. I've got a 1937 girls Elgin with dropstand & truss rods, same style chainguard and same style rear rack that can go with this boy's for another $50 plus shipping.
