Hutch trick bike with the 98 spoke rims.Next is a Sears woman's bike with the headlights & tank?It is in great shape.Next is an old Schwinn, women's I think.I haven't looked at it for a few years.All these bikes are in a garage.I also have an old Schwinn 20" bike.It's not a sting-ray.It's just a regular kid's bike,red.I'll try to find more info on them and whatever other bikes I might have in the garage.I would like to sell them all,but I'm not sure what they are worth.If anyone would have any ideas let me know.

Thanks,
Mike

FOR SALE:   Gitane Interclub Road Bike posted by: Joe M on 8/29/2005 at 7:00:22 PM
A couple years ago, I picked up an late 60's or early 70's Gitane Interclub with a 54 cm frame in real nice condition. It has Simplex derailleurs, leather saddle, and Mafac Brakes. It looks to be just about all original, with maybe the exception of the Super Champion rims and new bar tape. The tires are Wolber 700c x 23.
I had completely gone over this bike back when I first got it, all bearings were cleaned and relubed since most of the grease was just about dried solid. It showed little to no wear, the sprockets look like new, as do the deraileurs, chain and hubs. The rims are near mint, no wobble or bumps. The rear tire is the only thing that shows any use.
I did replace the bar tape, as is the original cloth had turned to dust. The paint and decals are still in pretty good condition with some touch up spots.
The problem is that this bike is way too small for me. My ideal size is a 62 to 63 cm frame with a long top tube. I picked up a nice Raleigh Super Course which fits me fine. The Gitane has just been hanging in the garage, it hasn't moved since I serviced it and took it for it's first test ride. It's so small for me that when I ride it my knees hit the handlebars.
I included a pic of the bike, other than some dust from hanging in the garage for a few years, it's ready to ride.
If any one has an interest in this, or has something I may be interested in, feel free to email me. I would be open to either sale or a trade. The way I feel it's doing no one any good just hanging in the garage. I was going to post this earlier this year, but I spend a lot of time fishing, and just never got around to it. I hope that someone here might have a use for this.

FOR SALE:   Honjo Road Bike Fenders posted by: Joe M on 8/29/2005 at 6:57:48 PM
I just wanted to post this here before listing these on eBay. I picked up 4 sets of Honjo polished aluminum road bike fenders complete with mounting hardware. These appear to be custom made with a slightly longer front fender to extend past a front touring rack.
I have 4 sets here all brand new and still wrapped in their original plastic. Each comes with a pair of 5mm stays, and attaching hardware. There is also an alternate mounting screw and 'R' clamp set for threaded frame stays and where inner clearance is close to the smaller rear sprocket.
The Part munbers included in each set are: H-40-700N Polished alloy fenders ($48), H-40-Freestay kit ($9.50), H-40 (type 9909) sliding bridge band ($2.50), 2- Honjo.5d 5mm DARUMA Screw kits ($22), plus 1 Honjo 5R -Clip kit for threaded stays ($6).
I'll sell each kit for $75 plus shipping. (Paid $450 for 6 pair), and used two pair myself.
These are super high quality and light weight mud guards.
I bought several sets inorder to get a better price for the pair I needed for a Raleigh Super Course I restored, and have since sold. I got a decent price on these, so I figured I would pass it on here. These would cost $88 if ordered direct online. The OEM site is: http://www.jitensha.com/eng/fndrs_e.html The fenders I have here are just like those shown on the gold colored frame on the website above.
