On the Raleigh Record Ace, that ASC fixed-gear 3-speed hub alone is worth the price of admission.

It would be fun to put derailleurs (Campag. Gran Sport or Simplex "suicide" in front, for example) on the second bike, making it a close-ratio 16-speed.

You know, I do wonder, what with all the current rage in fixie conversions, why Shimano, S-A or someone doesn't come out with a modern version of the ASC?

A fixie you don't have to flip-flop for climbing/descending? You'd think it would sell....

AGE / VALUE:   Schwinn Continental posted by: bill on 12/30/2006 at 3:25:25 PM
I have a Continental with a serial number of JB79608 and cannot find it in any database of Schwinn serial numbers. I am certain that the B is not an 8. The front badge which is rivetted on says Schwinn Chicago, the leather seat says Lycett (England),brakes are Vainqueur 999 (French), the derailer says Sprint (French) and the front fork is chrome. Shifters are on the bottom. What do I have? Thanks!!

Nice find. Yes, the frame was made in Sep. (Jan = A, Aug = H, Sep = J, Dec = M) 1966 (A = 1965, B = 1966, etc.), just before Schwinn changed to TwinStik stem shifters. The brakes, by the way, are Swiss (Weinmann Vainqueur 999), but much of the driveline is indeed French (Huret derailleurs, Atom or Normandy hubs).

AGE / VALUE:   1977 Garatti posted by: Eric on 12/29/2006 at 9:01:39 AM
new to this site. In the 70's I worked in my local bike shop. In 77 I acquired a Garlatti brought to the US to showcase the new Campy Gran Sprt components. Bike is almost original, Frame is Columbus, all chromed with Green paint. Wheels replaced several times, orig hubs. Bike is 100% functioning and i plan to repack all bearings and get it a prime as possible. Any thoughts on value.

That's one funky kids bike...chain drive! Hard to trace something like that. There were many smaller makers of childrens bikes doing one-0ff small production runs. See if the chain,, grips, crankarms or pedals have any markings on them to narrow it down to country of origin.

AGE / VALUE:   SANKI 10 Speed Information posted by: Skip Bisby on 12/25/2006 at 12:50:40 AM
Hello, I sneeked over from the "middleweight discussion group" to ask if anyone would like to have a Sanki 10 speed. I don't want to get into the whole story of how I came across this bike except to say it involved a guy needing beer money and me having seven dollars. The bike is a 27" and missing the front caliper, rear rim is a little tweeked. SunTour shifting stuff and steel crank set with MINI aluminum goose neck. I researched it a little and found it might be a copy of a Pegeot X-something. Anybody want it? Is it even worth shipping to get it out of California ? If you want pics or more info, let me know. Thanks, Skip

Hi, I am wondering if you, by chance, still have a picture of this bike? I am trying to identify a bike from the early 70's and would like to compare. Thanks.
