| Hi, I have a 1967 columbia rambler. it's women's and it's hot pink, in decent shape. I want to sell it but I have no idea how much I should list it for. Any suggestions?|
| have been given this bike , on the front it has sunbeam . on the chain guard is printed snipe , it is a childrens bike , it has white tyres white saddle and red paint work .but this is all i know can any one help as i cant seem to find this model online any where thanks|
| Is it my imagination, or are kids' bikes (with one obvious exception) less well documented in general than their full-sized sibs? Anyway, you may have discovered that, per Sheldon Brown's English 3-speeds page, Sunbeam was a division of Birmingham Small Arms until Raleigh Industries absorbed B.S.A. in 1957. |
My google turned one up on trade-it.co.uk -was it yours?
Please post what you learn.
| i have been gi-ven this bicycle by a friend for my son , but he is eight and he wont ride it , i was just wondering if any one could tell me a little about it . thankyou , its a trumph snipe |
| I have a 1950 or so Rollfast female version with 26 by 2.125 tires. Do these have any value and i have heard it is not a good idea to clean or try to paint or restore.|
| Value can only be determined by a buyer. Condition is always the limiting factor. The conventional wisdom is that women's bikes are less desirable than men's, and that the original paint is better than a repaint. Most of the high-zoot pro restorations, with paint-booth finishes, rechroming and all the details, are for the satisfaction of the collector and cost more than a reasonable resale price. However, every bike deserves to be well maintained, which eventually requires disassembly, cleaning and lubrication. |
| If you want to increase the value I have a 1950's rollfast mens frame. I'll have to check the size. It's either 26" or 24"|
| my email is vanfunandmore at yahoo com for the mens rollfast frame|
| Trying to find out what it might be worth. Incredible paint by artist with 70s theme.|
