AGE / VALUE:   rapido super de luxe posted by: kenny Palmer on 4/6/2001 at 8:42:27 PM
Hi there, I bought a MIB "Rapido Super de Luxe" sting ray type bike
a few years ago from a man who found it in the attic of an old
Husquvarna motorcycle shop. The bike is in new condition and is just sitting
around in my den. I want to sell it but but don't know what its worth.
Has anyone here ever heard of the bike. It's very similar to a sting-ray
ape hangers, banana seat, chrome fenders,rims and chain gaurd.

AGE / VALUE:   GREEN MANTA RAY SEAT WITH STRIPE posted by: Eric on 4/6/2001 at 5:15:34 AM
How much is a manta ray campus green seat with the racing stripe worth with a bad tag. The last inch of the stripe is worn off on the tip.The right side on the tip has a quarter size chunk missing out of it.The seat pan is almost mint has the reflector tap and the large reflector.The worst part is the rip on the left and is pretty much in the shape of a U.

Thanks,Eric

FOR SALE:   Repop Glitter Vinyl Krate Toolbags posted by: Matt on 4/4/2001 at 7:34:11 PM
I finally got around to getting these glitter vinyl krate toolbags made. They are cut out and being sewn together over the next 2 weeks, just in time to take a batch out to the Memory Lane and Ann Arbor shows. I'm going to have available the following:

Red Glitter with White Trim
Orange Glitter (Original Color) with White Trim
Yellow Glitter (Original Color) with White Trim
Blue Glitter with White Trim
Purple Glitter with White Trim
Silver Glitter with Black Trim
Silver Glitter with Green Trim
Plain White with Black Trim
Plain Black with White Trim

They will have nickel plated buckles and twist fasteners, but no other markings of any kind. If a person was enterprising....they might take a seat tag off of an old Schwinn 10 Speed seat and rivet it to their new bag.....not that I would advocate that in any way....They are the exact same dimensions as the original krate toolbags.
I'm asking $45.00 plus shipping for all colors except orange glitter and yellow glitter, they will be $50.00 plus shipping. Let me know if you're interested.
Thanks,
Matt

   RE:FOR SALE:    Schwinn Lil Chik 40$ +s&h posted by Stingrayman on 4/3/2001 at 6:00:57 PM
They aren't that valuable. I'd sell it for around $25.

   RE:RE:FOR SALE:    Schwinn Lil Chik 40$ +s&h posted by BillG on 4/4/2001 at 9:41:05 AM
$25??
You are kidding, right?
Even if it is a rusted pile of spray painted junk it is probably worth more the $25 in parts alone!
