AGE / VALUE:   Huffy Superstock 5 posted by: Scott Burcham on 7/22/2002 at 9:51:24 AM
I'm looking for information, brake/shifter cables and tires for a 70's model Huffy 24" musclebike. I don't know much about it, but it's got apehanger style handlebars like a late 60's Stingray, 5 speed shifter on the frame, and a way cool burnt orange banana seat. The bike is kind of a greenish yellow multi-hued color. It says "SUPERSTOCK 5" on the chainguard. Does anyone know anything about these? What about parts availability. It has raised white letter tires with the rear being a 24 x 1 3/4 slick and the front being a 1 3/8 tire. Any information would be most helpful. Thanks, Scott







MISC:   ??? Schwinn Scrambler Competition Model ??? posted by: ragtops3 on 7/21/2002 at 8:10:56 PM
I recently acquired a Schwinn Scrambler that seems to have more muscle than the Scramblers I have had and seen in the past. This one is tagged as having a Chrome Molybdenum frame and the main tube decal says 'Scrambler Competition Model' rather than just 'Scrambler'. And the WELDS! They are beyond Schwinn beefy welds. They remind me of the old aluminum alloy Redline frame welds. It is a rather interesting Scrambler.

Anyone know anything about this Competition Model?? Is it a different line of Schwinn Scrambler or just a year/model I have not seen until now?? Thanks for your help!

MISC:   2nd annual Kansas City Bicycle & scooter Swap meet. posted by: Calvert on 7/18/2002 at 4:11:40 AM
Just a reminder....it's now 1 1/2 weeks away.
Sunday June 28th at 6am

Last year's event was an enormous success.

El Torreon (Kansas City) Bicycle Swap Meet page:
http://hometown.aol.com/cycletruck/myhomepage/business.html

I'll be there primarily looking for old touring and light weight stuff but last year's turnout was heavily in favor of the Ballooner and Krater crowd. We seem to have an awful lot of Krate folks in this part of the country. I'll be digging through my basement to see if there is any Krate stuff left down there. I had a bunch of NOS muscle tires at one point but I believe they all went to Ann Arbor.

Seems like most of the shopping I do these days is on Ebay.
I really miss getting to meet old friends and actually handling the goods before parting with my hard-earned bucks.

I'm gonna try to get up to Alan Kinsey's long-enduring swap
in Des Moines later this year but meanwhile in the heat of the summer, this swap in KC is the best in the MidWest.
We even have a Pub Cruise the night before.

Collectors and pickers from all over have been calling in
for directions and information so we've had to scramble
to arrange for more space.

Check out our Web Site for details
& let me know if you have further questions.

Does anyone know how much a iverson road runner bikecycle is worth? Also when was it made


   RE:AGE / VALUE:    posted by Cal on 7/23/2002 at 2:21:26 PM
There's one in the Picture Database. If it looks like yours then I'd say the year is close to the one in the database.

Get your serial number and it`s location and use this url to get the year, month and possibly the day your old Schwinn was built. Feel free to copy any or all of the text to make your own comprehensive date codes catalog.


   This would help though, oops posted by Guido on 7/15/2002 at 10:42:29 PM

Does anyone know the paint or color mix for the campus green? I need to repaint my bike and need it. Thanks 7/15/02

You can order it here: http://www.Hyper-Formance.com/
The Campus Green looks perfect. You have to shoot over the silver base. Have a nice sample to match while you paint. Most candy colors will get too dark very fast if you build up too much color coats. If you do it right, it will be sweet. Good luck.

I had a stingray bike in the 60's, sometime between 65-68,
it was a 3 spd model, with handbrakes front and rear.I do remember it being a sort of purple color,and had a purple
metalflake seat.The shift handle was also in the shape of a T instead of a shiftball. I would like to know the year of this bike and info on the seat as i might to replicate it, if i cant find one.
