WANTED:   1950 Bicycle posted by: Jerel Turner on 2/19/2007 at 2:39:15 PM
I am starting a search for a bicycle made in 1950. I want a plain bike, with fenders if it has baloon tires. Without fenders, of course, if it has drop handlebars. I dont want a tank, lights or carrier. I want the bike for riding, so it needs to be road worthy, and I prefer it to be in a condition that would not require a lot of restoration. Am I dreaming or is something like this out there?

FOR SALE:   1951 J. C. Higgins Color Flow (Sears) posted by: Tim on 2/18/2007 at 8:37:39 PM
Awesome condition for an unrestored bike. Always stored indoors. I have had this bike for 8 years and know the owner who had it at least 30 years before that, he probably had it as a kid. Maroon mens heavyweight with 2.125 x 26" tires. Beehive springer, rear deck, etc. Note, this is not a deluxe color flow with the batwing light and tank. There is no evidence to my eyes that these parts were ever bolted on this bike. I have in face seen a scan of the 1950's sears catalogs that show at least 4 models were offer with different trim levels and accessories, just like car are sold. Asking $350. Tim 570-778-4020 or email me for more info tmsconst@ptd.net Bike is in Tamaqua, PA 18252

WANTED:   Need Schwinn 26inch S7 wheels posted by: Ed. Torbeck on 2/18/2007 at 11:24:51 AM

I need a set of Schwinn chrome S7 wheels for a project bike. I am assembling a vintage middle weight cruiser. A three speed rear hub with coaster brake would be ideal.
I do have a three speed hub which can be laced into a regular wheel.
Please advise what you have and price.

Thanks,

Ed. Torbeck

FOR SALE:   Peugeot PX-10 posted by: Richard on 2/18/2007 at 8:54:16 AM
I have two Peugeot PX-10's NOS. Yes, that's correct. The bikes have been unboxed and meticulously assembled (by myself when I worked in bike shop) but NEVER ridden and stored indoors in controlled environment. The tires (labeled Peugeot btw) show a little dry rot and obviously the glue is dry and cracked. I am considering selling them but have absolutely no idea what they should sell for as they are probably the only completely NOS PX-10's out there. Any ideas? Both bikes are from the 1972 production run. Our shop sold hundreds of these bikes, mostly to people who never appreciated what fine machines they were.

Richard, I would love to find an NOS Peugeot PX10 for me to ride and use everyday. That's exactly what I've been looking for. What size is the frame? And what is the color scheme?

I'm in Seattle, Washington area - where are you located?

Thank you,
Craig Burlingame
