I'm looking for a new skip tooth chain. I tried Memory lane but they have one price on the web site and jack it up when you call, and I won't deal with people like that. it's dishonest.

You might want to look on eBay, skip link chain is getting rare, expect to pay at least $70 for a new one, and anywhere from $30 to $40 for a used one. I've seen a few new ones go as high as $110. Remember this chain has been out of style for about 50 years.

FOR SALE:   Italian Draissienne with Saddle Leather posted by: Elizabeth on 9/23/2005 at 12:00:47 AM
Hi,
I've had the hardest time identifying this bike. On all the leather and the antique looking black basket it says, "Styled by Paulo Passomoto." The hub says 3-GANG L; the brakes were made in Yugoslavia, the wheels in Italy. It is a women's bicycle with the Dutch curved bar instead of straight. If anyone has any information on it, let me know. The provenance is that it was designed for a charity auction at Bloomingdale's in NYC many years ago. I can send more photos too. If you know anything about it email me at fuego@best.com. I am in no hurry to sell it, but am to learn more about it.

MISC:   Boys Rambler Bicycle posted by: Ann Chaffin on 9/21/2005 at 4:50:23 PM
I have a boys Rambler Bicycle that my brother is trying to get me to trade/sell to him. I've done quite a bit of looking on the Internet, but can't seem to find anything that looks like the one I have. I'd like to find out if it's worth anything. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,

Ann

More information is required, preferably with photos. Columbia made a Rambler model in the 60s; I sold one for $75 not long ago and still have pictures of it. At the other end of the value spectrum, Gormully&Jeffrey, American Bicycle (Chicago), and Pope (Hartford and Chicago) all made Rambler marques before 1920 according to the wheelmen's listing of early brands at wheelmen.org. Send me a picture of yours if you like.

Thanks for the respone. I'll get some pictures and post asap.

It has a metal tag on the front w/Rambler and around the edges of metal tag it says The Westfield Mfg. Company, Westfield, Mass. For what it's worth (original or not), the rear end back wheel says KomA Super, chain guard says Rambler in cursive writing.

Thanks,

Ann

I've posted one 69 Columbia Rambler photo to the picture database, which will take some days to appear. There are several Columbia Ramblers, 50's and 60's, in the database. Westfield Manufacturing and Columbia are related, but I forget which is the parent. They go back to the 1800's and Pope. I did some research once; maybe someone here will help. My Rambler had a Komet coaster brake.
Feel free to email me picture of yours.

I uploaded some photos to the database. Like yours, they should be there in a couple of days. When you get to look at them, let me know what you think.

Thanks for taking time to do this. I appreciate it.

one more time- I just posted to the guy above with the Rollfast, and it occurs to me that, speaking as a guy who has loved bikes for half a century, and has a basement full of em, the most important thing is to make sure they have good homes. If your brother wants it, and will take care of it, GIVE it to him; maybe your generosity will come back to you.

WANTED:   Derby Stroker posted by: Bob on 9/20/2005 at 3:39:23 PM

   RE:WANTED:   Derby Stroker posted by Joe M on 9/23/2005 at 4:36:54 AM
I have heard of these, when I was a kid, a friend had one from the local Pep Boys, these were already out of style when I was that age in the late 70's here, many of these bikes here ended up as makeshift BMX bikes. I did have one a few years ago, not sure of the year, but traded it for another bike. I am not sure who made these, but Derby Bicycle is the parent company of Raleigh USA and Diamondback bicycles made today. There were also Derby bicycles from England years ago, but I believe that the Derby bikes sold by Pep Boys were US built, posibly Derby was a brand name used on these by Pep Boys?
