WANTED:   Sturmey-Archer Endrick 26" 1-3/8th" rims posted by: Kurt K on 8/29/2004 at 10:45:16 PM
Hello fellows,

The rear Endrick rim on my 1971 Raleigh Sports began to burst today, I guess the rust on the inside of the rim finally ate whatever held it together.

Since the rim I have in front is wobbly, I thought this would be a better time then ever to replace both rims.

I would be intrested in a pair of straight and original Sturmey-Archer Endrick 26 X 1-3/8" rims, with preferably little to no surface rust. The hole combination must be 32/40.

I may be willing to buy the whole wheel if you have it, but I would rather purchase the rim alone - the last thing I want is to spend another $25 extra for another Sturmey AW hub that I don't need...oh well! :-)

All the best,

Kurt

All the ones I have look like they are built by Murray. What parts do you need?

OUR HOME AND GARAGE WAS TOTALED BY A TORNADO IN JUNE AND I LOST MY 1969 SCHWINN STING RAY 5 SPEED FAST BACK AND NEED TO KNOW THE WORTH OF IT FOR INSURANCE. IT WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION COMPLETELY ORIGINAL AND BLUE IN COLOR ANY HELP IN FINDING OUT THE WORTH OF IT WILL BE APPRECIATED.


   RE:MISC:    posted by joel on 8/31/2004 at 2:52:28 PM
You could check the sold items on Ebay. Printouts from several completed auctions might satisfy the insurance agent.

hello;
sorry for your lost, first thing, that sucks. according to the schwinn sting-ray book by liz fried, (real excellent by the way) there about $450.-$750. but thats 1997 book. i`m thinking mint like you said maybe a good grand. rams horn increases value, but i think they were only on `67 and `68 models, the jet black `67 with rams horn all orig. is i think the most valuble fastbacks. larry. p.s. good luck with everything and i hope you get a nice classic schwinn replacement someday, i have two krates, a sting-ray and a manta-ray and dont even have the fastback myself, wanna get one heard there great rides.






FOR SALE:   Raleigh, Sturmey-Archer and other English cycle parts posted by: Kurt K. on 8/28/2004 at 10:04:23 PM
Note: The items are for sale *subject to availability.* There may be a few days extra delay, as I do not have the parts on-hand with me.

Item #1: One Sturmey-Archer S3C internal 3-speed hub w/coaster-brake, used, 36 hole hub. Not known if hub works or not, spins roughly. No sprocket, chrome is peeling just a bit on the brake arm. Some pitting and a bit of rust under the chrome here and there, but still very nice for an everyday runner. Hub is a late 70's model with the chrome bands - I think it's stamped somewhere between '73 through '76 - haven't looked at it in a while.

Asking $35.(Not including shipping & handling charges.)

NOTE: Sturmey AW type hub from the same vintage available as well. Condition is similar to the S3C. Also asking $35. I think it's a 36 hole as well.


Item #2: New WALD-brand North Road-style Handlebars. Made in the U.S.A., suitable replacement for your old Raleigh North Roads. The new bars are about 2 inches wider then the originals, and the ends are about 1 1/4" longer. The ends can be cut down, but if you want a more relaxed ride without worrying about appearance, this is what you want.

Warning: The center of the handlebars are 1" in diameter - the original North Road stem is 7/8". While the following procedure is not usually recommended, you can fit these handlebars in the original stems with some bending of the stem's hole and a bit of Vaseline.

$16.50 each. (Not including shipping & handling charges.) Allow a week extra for this part - I must order it from my supplier on a first-come-first-serve basis.


Item(s) #3: Sturmey-Archer 3 speed indexed 'trigger' shifters, hardly used, in excellent shape. Some appear clean enough to be N.O.S. However, I cannot guarantee these parts to be N.O.S., so I am selling them as "very slightly used." Two styles are available:

1970's era, black plastic cover with "polished steel" look. Red "SA" logo,
OR
1990's era, black plastic cover w/current Sturmey-Archer logo.

Included is trigger shifter and mounting screw. Cables and other hardware are NOT included.

$16.00/ea. (Not including shipping & handling charges.) Specify variant.

P.S.: I also have one 1960's to 70's-era index-shifter available. It is a copy of a 50's Sturmey-Archer shifter, but says "Trigger-Shifter" instead of "Sturmey-Archer". It also has a small "TCW" script on the bottom, suggesting that the shifter be used with the Sturmey-Archer TCW hub - shifter should work with an AW though. The logo is a copy of the SA-style banner. All metal, no plastic cover. Asking $20. Only one available!

Item(s) #4: New 26 X 1-3/8th tires (I think they are Chen Shing or LHR, don't remember) with thin reflective silver striping. A perfect tire for your 1974-1979 Raleigh Sports. Looks almost like the original thin whitewalls that came on these bikes originally, but with silver striping instead (which can pass for white - it fooled me the first time I saw them). Nice smooth, crisply molded tread too - not the usual rubber 'flash' found on many crappy Taiwanese tires.

$30.00/pair (Not including shipping & handling charges.) Subject to the availability of them at my local Wal-Mart ;-)

Take care!

Kurt

Terribly sorry, but in my haste, I accidentally wrote down $16.50 and $16.00 as the prices of the Wald handlebars and the trigger-shifters, respectively. The actual prices are $18.50 and $18.00.

Again, I am very sorry for the mistake - please pardon it!

Take care,

Kurt






FOR SALE:   22 inch bike posted by: Howard on 8/28/2004 at 6:07:20 PM
I can't seem to find it now, but somewhere on one of these discussions groups there was a post about 22 inch bikes. Somebody said that only a couple of manufacturers ever built bikes with that size tire. But they didn't mention Schwinn. However, I am almost sure I have a 22 inch Schwinn multispeed, skinny tired bike out there in the shed. I'd have to climb over a lawn tractor, a tiller, a motor scooter and several bikes to get to it, but I'm 99% sure it has 22 inch wheels. Anybody remember such a bike? I think this one is 10 or 15 years old. Wow, maybe it's a rare collector's item worth thousands! Yeah, riiiiight.

Hello all,

I am intrested in a set of post-1974 Raleigh Sports decals. Original, reproduction, I don't care, as long as it looks right and it's not worn to the point where I can't apply them.

I am willing to buy the whole set of decals, as well as an incomplete set, or just one decal alone.

Below is a scanned photo of the 1976 Raleigh brochure from http://www.retroraleighs.com/. It shows all the decals I will need:

Hi there, I have an old Sunshine Bicycle but do not know the age of it. I may be interested in selling it but I am more interested in some info about it. I would be willing to send you pics if you like, please let me know thanks.






FOR SALE:   Bunch of bicycles posted by: Howard on 8/27/2004 at 10:03:23 PM
I have a shed full of old bicycles. Sorry, they aren't THAT old, but some of them are more than 30 years. There must be at least 20 bikes in there and they have been stored out of the weather, and in the dark, on a concrete floor. I need that space for my motor scooter collection, so I want to sell them by the truck load. Naturally, I will take old motor scooters and parts in trade. Even a moped or a mini bike. Bring a truck or trailer. I live in Tennessee just a bit west of Knoxville.

I need to find tires (and tubes) for my early '70s Raleigh Tomahak. The dimensions are 16 X 2 for the back wheel and 47 X 222 (11 X 1 3/4) for the front one. If these are not available any longer, is there a way to replace them with other rims for which one can find tires? Thanks a lot. JO
