MISC:   Information wanted about old ialian bike posted by: Peter on 3/29/2005 at 2:03:10 PM
Hello there
I own an old italian bicycle. It is labeled "Cicli Marisa Milano".

Does anyone have informations about a bike like this? It has got

- 26" wheels (steel), tires are 26" x 1 3/8
- rod brakes
- no gears

Im looking for new brake-rubbers (is that the correct word?), since the old ones are no longer of any use.

Greetings from Switzerland

Peter

FOR SALE:   Monarch Tandem Bike with Wood Wheels posted by: Terri Lee on 3/23/2005 at 3:04:53 PM
I have a Monarch Tandem Bike that we would like to sell.
The bike nameplate shows 'Monarch' and 'Chicago' with a lion's head in between. The serial number is 127289. The bike steers from both the front and back using rods that tie the two together. We have the original wooden wheels also. I was offered $350 for it but it should be worth more, don't you think?

I am also told that this might be a special bike as it has dual control with both handlebars. Any one know anything??

Terri Lee, I was hoping someone with direct knowledge would jump in, but maybe I'll do for now. You have a rare bike. Value is only what you paid, until you sell, but your machine should be of interest to collectors. To start with, the dual control and wood rims both date it to before 1930, possibly well before.
The Wheelmen's list of early bicycle brands shows six different makers using the Monarch badge around the turn of the twentieth century. I suggest you take lots of pictures and folow up at
www.thewheelmen.org
I'd like to see a picture too.
good luck.
