AGE / VALUE:1966 Columbia Tourist III posted by: Holly on 4/8/2009 at 3:19:42 PM
I just bought a ladies 1966 Columbia Tourist III (determined this from the serial #) in pretty nice condition and wanted to learn more about it (are the parts original? what's it worth?). It has a bit of surface rust, but the paint is in pretty good condition and it rides well. It has a Mesinger seat, no markings on the gear shift.

26"x1.375" tires
Original paint (mostly intact - some is worn off)
Seat condition - good on top, a bit rusty underneath.

Your bike was made during the English 3 speed craze. The name Tourist is pretty much related to a well known English bike model that a lot of companies used. Depending on who your selling it to and where your selling it, you can get anything from about $100 to $200 for it.

MIDDLEWEIGHT:Western Flyer Help posted by: Vince on 4/8/2009 at 11:48:29 AM
My girlfriend just picked up a nice Western Flyer. There is no name on the bike. It has a nice art deco looking chrome chainguard and the numbers F293537 on the rear dropout. The side reflectors are the same ones that are on my '72 Schwinn Suburban. Anyone have any ideas about date and model ? Thanks. "the other sites" were no help at all. Vince

72 is in the ballpark. The seatstay design looks like columbia, but it's just a guess.

That bike is an early '70s Rollfast product- I knew someone at the time that had one badged as such. Remember it being a little on the cheesy side back then.

The one picture is not very helpful. Appears to be a Legnano city bike. Italian manufacturer of a full range: kids, city bikes, high-end lightweight racers, etc.

I don't know about the year, but I think they stopped making Elgin's right around WWII. As for tires if you don't care about them being vintage look at he sidewall. There should be a size somewhere 20 x?. a local bike shop can probably get them, try searching online as well, you might even get lucky at the local department store. I have a 26" JC Higgins which is what replaced the Elgin and I got my tires from the bike shop a few years ago.
