FOR SALE:   Bike components posted by: Charlie Daniels on 11/27/2006 at 4:03:03 PM
I bought a Schwinn bicycle from a small bike shop in my college town. I've had the bike about a year now and have abused the brakes on it. I have waited and procastinated long enough! I think it is time to replace and upgrade the braking system. I was thinking about Shimano. I did a little research at:

found lots of good general info. Check it out!
Does anyone have any suggestions about brands or components? I am not looking to spend more than $150 on the new brakes.

Your local bike shop will have the ball bearings. Just bring in an old one so they can match the size.
I've repair torn banan seats with a glue gun, and then painted over the repair with glitter nail polish to match the color of the saddle.
None of the replicas are built the way Schwinn originally built them with electro-forged stearing tubes, etc.

None of the replicas are built the way Schwinn originally built them with electro-forged stearing tubes, etc., but they are still fine for riding and having fun.

MISC:   "Parkleigh" Stingray?? posted by: William West on 11/26/2006 at 3:59:39 PM
Found an interesting bike today. Head badge reads "Parkleigh" Gimble's own. On the chain guard, it says "Wildcat 100." Has Schwinn tires, wide one on back which says stingray. Did Schwinn manufacture bikes for rebadging and distribution by chain stores? This bike looks just like a stingray, with the older style banana seat. Any help would be appreciated.

Probably manufactured by Murray. Hard to tell without a picture.

Here's a pic. I especially like the "Polo" type seat on this.

The bike is made by Murray. You can tell by the Murray emblem in the fork darts, the Murray front sprocket, the pointed rear dropouts, and the bike's name, Wildcat. The tires are replacement. To see if the rims are original check if they are stamped MO mfg. The seat fits the 64-66 time period or therabouts and should be a Troxel if original to the bike.
