MOTORIZED BICYCLES:question on legality of a motorized bicycle posted by: adam c on 8/6/2002 at 4:42:37 AM
i live in pa and wanted to the the angel wings spitfire 48 motorized bike. i can't afford a whizzer yet and just thought it would be fun to put put around on. could i somehow get the turn signals from the newer whizzers and use a battery supply? also i saw a 68 honda moped and it did not have turn signals. do "mopeds" have to have them in the first place? any help would be great. thanks !!

Go here: http://sciplus.com/category.cfm?subsection=8&category=93 for a great deal on battery powered turn signals. I have several pairs of them and like them a lot.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Larger Tank, New Muffler Suggestions posted by: Drew Terp on 7/31/2002 at 2:32:37 AM
I recently installed a 35cc rear mount motor on my bicycle, but I have found that the tank is too small, and it is way too loud. Any suggestions on where to buy parts to fix these problems would be great.

Too Loud?!?! What...?
LOL
I added an actual 1.5 Gallon moped tank to my bike then used a brass "two in, one out" valve with a one way shut off inline. It's from one of my old aquarium set ups. I don't know the actual name of this component.
I use the moped tank as my main tank and the motor's original little tank as an auxiliary or reserve to get me to the next gas station or home.
Works great...

FOR SALE:FS 3 hp and 5 hp engines for mini bike or motorized 24" Schwinn Frames posted by: John on 7/23/2002 at 3:17:24 AM
Have several engines that start with first or second pull. If you have a beater 24 inch Schwinn frame lying around why not convert it into a motorized Stingray type bike. We can provide the parts you will need to convert said bike into a dream bike. We already have several already done. Motors range from $70-$100. If you have a mini bike that hasn't started in years or a go kart that hasn't here is your opportunity to get its behind running again.

REPRODUCTIONS:Need to identify manufacturer of ordinary reproduction posted by: Sue Kayton on 7/5/2002 at 2:46:10 PM
Could you help me please? I'm looking for spare parts for a reproduction penny-farthing. The frame is all chrome-plated. The seat is covered in black vinyl. The step to assist with mounting is made of chrome-plated rebar. The big wheel is 37" in diameter, and the rear wheel is 14", both with solid gray rubber tires. The front fork enclosure for the bearings is like a big "O" with a split in the bottom held together with a screw and nut. Perhaps you could suggest who might have made it. One of the bearings disintegrated and the local bike shops all say they can't find the parts. I am located in the San Francisco area. The reproduction is in excellent condition, so it can't be very old. THANK YOU.

Hi Sue,
You might check out http://www.hiwheel.com , they're a leading maker
of repro penny farthings. It might be one of theirs. Greg Barron
of the company (Rideable Bicycle Replicas) hangs out in the
hiwheeler/boneshaker/safety list here. He could probably tell you
who made it, even if it wasn't his company.

I am looking for a repro Rolling Rock Schwinn, 1997 or so.
I think it is modeled on a black phantom(the bike is green) because it has a tank on the crossbar like a black phantom.
All conditions would be considered. Please contact me with any which are for sale.

I own the "rolling rock"schwinn that you seek.Sorry,but it's probably not for sale.I was just wondering if anyone had an idea of the bicycles value.In nearly mint condition,with the exception of a small dent on the rear fender.

I recently acquired a rolling rock schwinn in very good condition (never ridden but a few small chips from the previous owner loading it in a car). I don't want to sell it but was wondering what it was worth? Any help would be great. Also, i just got a computer and this is the first e mail i have sent so i'm not sure if this is going to work. thank you, Tom

          RE:REPRODUCTIONS:Rolling Rock approx. 1997 Schwinn Repro posted by Dennis Caswell on 6/6/2009 at 8:18:28 AM
I just came acrossed your ad looking for a rolling rock cruiser, after reading the replies I was wondering if you had gotten any interesting information. I have one of the original cruisers that has never been ridden and up until 3 weeks past had never been assembled.
The bike was originally built in 1987 for schwinn by a chinese bicycle manufacturer named China Bike, there were 500 built .
I recieved this information and sent a request to rolling rock and since they had been sold the archives section of Anheuser Busch has asked me to send photoes. It should get interesting as to what the worth is, if the price is right I may even consider selling mine . Best of luck with your cruiser.

I have tried to contact the Lazy Walker Bicycle Company of
Canada. The company will not answer my e-mail, fax, person to person phone message or may registered letter. The company does not exist. I would hope someone at Oldroads would know some about the above company. Please reply.
Thank you,

Well there is a mention saying that they removed the lady's astride bikes. I didn't see them last web site visit.
about time, what happened to them I don't know. Never dealt with them. Hope we find out.
