MISC:   1939 Mercury posted by: Dave on 1/14/2005 at 6:56:15 PM
Hi,

I picked up a 1939 Mercury Womens bike. Looks like it is all there except the orig. tires. Any idea on the value?

Check out my Hercules bicycle on the pictures database and let me know if you want to know more details/see more pics or are interested. Keep in mind that I live in South Africa.... but doesn't that just make the whole thing just more interesting? :-)

Also have a look at my Achilles on the database. This one is however my baby and I couldn't bear to part with it!

Regards

Charl

WANTED:   Original Crank posted by: Tim Horner on 1/13/2005 at 8:18:08 PM
I am looking for an original crank for my bike, but I am not entirely sure what my bike is. If you can help with either of these that would be great. I think it is WWI BSA (maybe Rudge), but look here for pics.

Try the English Roadsters forum - a Raleigh DL-1 chaincase or Chinese Forever chaincase may (or may not) work for you.
