MISC:   should I chop this bike? posted by: Sarah on 7/30/2005 at 3:58:36 AM
I was looking for frames to customize when I picked up a 1979 girl's huffy sweet thunder with 20inch wheels at the thrift store. I originaly purchased the bike to turn into a cusom chopper, but it is in almost perfect conditon, it looks as though it has never even been ridden, was kept hung, so the rims are nearly perfect, and has virtualy no rust whatsoever. I personally am more interested in customising it than restoring it, but it seems like it would be a shame to take it apart if someone were intersted in it. Please let me know soon, because I have plans for the frame that dont include many of the original parts even though they are in perfect condition.

FOR SALE:   1940s or 50s Challenger bicycle posted by: Marta Lakin on 7/28/2005 at 5:44:54 PM
For years we have stored two bicycles(boys)in our garage that belonged to a relative. They are in good shape with original seats and everything. I presume they are from the late 40s or 50s and I have no idea who made them just the name Challenger on it. How valuable might they be? I so enjoyed watching your show that went into detail about vintage bicycles, thank you.

the Challenger was made by Schwinn for B.F. Goodrich. most of the ones I've seen have been from the '60s. they usually go for around the same as the comparable Schwinn. this may not completely help but finding a Schwinn to compare to is fairly easy. as always I advise looking at finished auctions on eBay. find a few that look like yours and base your estimation on that. you might even find a challenger there, they're fairly common.

FOR SALE:   Huffy Cheater/Slick Modified posted by: benj clarke on 7/28/2005 at 4:50:06 PM
This is a psychedelic, cool paint job - sparkle green blends into sparkle orange. Banana seat (sparkle orange with white binding), has that "easy rider" vibe. The tall wheelie bar broke years ago, replaced with a short one. Surface rust. I think it is from 1970, as the serial number is 0H435873. If you think it has some value, make an offer. The best thing I can do right now is get it out of my parents' garage, thus any reasonable offer will be considered. Email me at benj_bass32@yahoo.com ----------- thanks
