larry,

If your bicycle is still available, I am interested.
Is the bike apart or together?

AGE / VALUE:   Information wanted on my Evans Commander posted by: Kemmer on 2/6/2007 at 1:15:20 PM
I just aquired a ladies Evans Commamder. It is missing the wheels. First of all, I'm wondering where I might find wheels that would be appropriate for this bike. I'm guessing they're 26 inch, but I'm not sure. Would they have been chrome or painted? It looks alot like the mens vesrion in the photo archive with similar fenders, head badge, rack mount (rack is missing), chain guard and graphics on the tank. What years were these made? I've linked to a picture if it helps.

I believe that would be a 1963. "L" would be November and "3" for 1963. There were only 5 numbers in the 1953 serial numbers.

sturmey-archer.com lists phone and mail contacts for S-A USA. For that vintage there should be no significant difference between NOS and NS.

AGE / VALUE:   Western Flyer Serial # posted by: Chris on 1/25/2007 at 1:33:03 PM
Okay, so I finally found this serial #--I guess the light hit the bike just right today that it took 5 days to find it. Anyway, I'm not sure if I have the entire number, or if part of it got sanded down--it's hard to tell. But it's really frustrating finding any info at all on Western Flyer serial #'s--can't find anything anywhere and I'm still waiting on NBHAA to answer my email.
Here's what it looks to be:

1H 724854

Does this mean anything to anyone, or does anyone know how to decode a WF serial #?
Thanks,
Chris

H is more then likely the 8th mounth Auguist of maybe 61 ,71, or 51. Thats the 1 stands for. That a good guess on most number systems.

AGE / VALUE:   Monark Roadster - girls 24" posted by: Chris on 1/24/2007 at 9:14:46 PM
Hi,
I saw a Monark Roadster girls bike at a flea market for $400. I took a picture, but don't have my camera on me now to upload it. It looks to be all original and in pretty good shape. It's sort of a light pastel green and white. I'm sure a picture would help, but any idea the value of this? Is $400 sort of high? I can't find any information on that particular model anywhere to get a better idea.
Thanks,
Chris

It depends on what model. If it's a pre-war Sivler King, $400 might be good.
If it's a 24" middleweight, the price shouldn't even be $100.

          RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:   Monark Roadster - girls 24 posted by Chris on 1/25/2007 at 1:37:01 PM
It's definitely a 24" bike. It doens't say Silver King on the head badge--just Monark. Okay, so I thought it was pretty overpriced myself.
Thanks

AGE / VALUE:   Male Blue Schwinn Phantom posted by: Brett on 1/24/2007 at 2:38:28 PM
I found a male Blue Schwinn Phantom in my grandfathers barn and to my understanding it being the color blue makes it rare. I would say that it is in pretty good condition the only problems i see is that the front headlight on the fender is broke and the cover is off of the seat. There was also a female BF Goodrich Crusader/ Challenger that is Blue/White it looks like it is in perfect condition with only a little rust on the handle bars and the front basket. If anyone has any information about these bikes i would appreciate some info. I will try and get some pics so i can show any responders.
Thanks,
Brett

It sounds like you have a nice set of his and hers Deluxe Schwinns, DONT be foooled by low offers, investigate them well, your setting on a pile of loot, and not hundreds either. good luck, and remember, NO painting. buy original parts used off Ebay, and expect to pay a lot Good Luck

Does your Phantom have chrome fenders? The Phantom fenders were chrome
& the Schwinn B-6 fenders were painted. I had heard that the only blue Phantom's were female & they came out in Christmas of 1955. Happy
Collecting!!!

Hello I am in need of some help figuring out what type of seatpost this is that I have from a long closed down Huffy dealer.

AGE / VALUE:   Can't find serial # posted by: Chris on 1/23/2007 at 7:07:10 AM
Hi,
I just bought a girls Western Flyer. According to the info somewhere on this site, it says the WF's with the size tires on this makes it about a '57 WF. I cannot find the serial number in any of the usual places. This bike has been painted over and I've stripping it, but still can't locate it. Is it possible it was sanded off by whoever painted it, or are the serial numbers typically debossed in the metal. Where should I be looking especially close for this number?
Thanks,
Chris

I have one. They were Schwinns that the Boren Bicycle Co purchased (they MAY have assembled them in Arkansas, not sure) At any rate, they put on their own head badge. Mine is original and rideable. I have pictures. Other e-mail: trmatthews1@comcast.net

I just found a tricycle made by the Boren Bicycle Co. in Little Rock, AR. It has a great head badge and seat and handle bars. However the rear wheels are half gone but has the front tire and wheel. It could be restored.
