I use to work on these as a teen in 1974 via the local distributor. They are impossible to get parts for. I would like to find one for nostagic reasons if anyone knows of one for sale.
Thanks

I have a purple dalmati, was hoping to restore but now find that parts are hard to come by. Any suggestions? Should I just sell it?

REPRODUCTIONS:   Limited Edition Replicas posted by: Kevin on 7/19/2000 at 6:24:37 PM
I'm interested in purchasing a classic bike reproduction. What accounts for the wide price differential between the "Limited Edition 1941 Columbia Superb F9T" at $800 and the "Schwinn 1954 Black Phantom" at $1600?....they both look like excellent bikes, but why is there such disparity in price? As a newcomer to the collectible bike arena, pls. enlighten me...thanks.

  Replies:
          RE:REPRODUCTIONS:   Limited Edition Replicas posted by JimW. on 7/20/2000 at 10:08:55 AM
The disparity is due to the fact that one of them is a Schwinn replica. The Columbia is a very beautiful repop. I haven't looked at a Phantom repop, but I doubt it's any
nicer. If you have no strong Schwinn yen, go for the Columbia. Many people would prefer it, even without the
price differential. There was a good article to do with the
F9T repop at the CABE site. Probably still there.

          RE:RE:REPRODUCTIONS:   Limited Edition Replicas posted by JimW. on 7/20/2000 at 10:26:01 AM
Yes, the article is still there. Go to: http://www.thecabe.com/directory/archives/65/myclassic.html
Richard also has a later article on modifications to his
F9T replica to make it even more authentic. PS: The Phantom
repop is pretty much all Taiwanese, the F9T isn't.

          RE:REPRODUCTIONS:   Limited Edition Replicas posted by Brian on 7/21/2000 at 8:51:19 PM
For the money, I prefer the Columbia. They did a real nice job. Also look at the Roadmaster Repro, you can pick one up for about $350.00. A real flashy bike.

          RE:RE:RE:REPRODUCTIONS:   Limited Edition Replicas posted by mad brad on 7/24/2000 at 8:30:17 PM
i have a green phantom repop and it is very nice ride both but the schwinn is a real head turner chrome will get you home the other losers can buy the cheap ones which are not worth saving bd i have orig phantoms to the bike made schwinn

AGE / VALUE:   The flying bicycle posted by: ChristopherRobin on 7/8/2000 at 10:27:37 AM
It rides like a 3 wheel bike, takes off like a helecopter. Why haven't we seen one? This lowrider thing is all tapped out, time to move on to more inventive projects. I would like to time travel back and hang out with Igor Sikorski.

CR, that's not such a crazy idea. There's a recumbent/parawing ultralite out there. (BikeRod&Kustom/off-topic archives#1)For the real chopper/bike there's the Gluhareff Pressure Jet Engine plans from http://rqriley.com , designed for back-pack copters, etc. For more on the jet/bike thing, have a
sneak preview of my interview with Robert Q. Riley in the
forthcoming BikeRod&Kustom: http://bikerodnkustom2.homestead.com/robertQriley.html
Prepare for blast-off!

AGE / VALUE:   Chicken Power? What was that? posted by: ChristopherRobin on 6/26/2000 at 1:47:40 PM
This latest find was a 26 X 2.125 Balloon tire, red Schwinn with a Weed wacker motor with a metal roller driver on the front wheel. A BENDIX red band kick back hub, Goodrear Double Eagle tires!! Mix up some gas/ oil 32/1 and off I go. I am having a blast with it and now that I finally get to use these crazy all white tires I have in this size. and some odd ball Schwinn parts. I am really having fun with it. I just may get into Whizzer bikes if I find one cheap enough! I paid $35.00 for this so that is part of the reason why I am grinning as I zip down the street.

  Replies:
          RE:AGE / VALUE:   Chicken Power? What was that? posted by Jon on 11/8/2000 at 5:22:06 PM
Chicken Power was sold in the mid to late 70's when commuters were trying to find more fuel effecient ways to get around because of high gas prices. It had quite a bit more pep than heavier mopeds because it could be mounted on just about any bike. Definitely one of the better bolt on engines and one of the first of it's kind since the Whizzer if I'm not mistaken. The main drawback was that it ate up tires.

I love 'em, but I can;t afford them. The thing that makes them so cool is the engine is mounted inside the frame, like a motorcycle. Most other gas powered bicycles have the motor over the front or rear wheel.

          RE:MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Anybody out there? posted by Brian on 6/25/2000 at 8:18:40 PM
I am restoring a 1947 WZ Whizzer. Had Memory Lane rebuild the motor. I will probably leave the frame and fenders as is for a while as they are still in original paint. I replaced most of the chrome parts. I also have a 1940 Indian Sport Scout motorcycle but I get just as many comments from the Whizzer. When I show it, I am suprised at all the people that had one years ago.

          RE:RE:MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Anybody out there? posted by Marvin L. Schmidtberger on 7/4/2000 at 12:39:26 PM

your whizzer motor. I always wanted one and finally found one and am starting to restore it.I would appreciate all the info you can give me. I am a novice at this so I need all the help I can get. I have parts of 3 motors that I would like to rstore if it isn't to expensive. Thank you

Have two and not interested in selling them. I do agree with you about this forum. Now that the Schwinn Forum collapsed I wonder where all the collectors went.

I purchased a motorized bicycle at a auction. It runs and works quite well. I'm trying to identify the motor. it has Taigene stamped in a couple places on the case. It mounts over the front wheel and has to be manually pushed down to the tire to engage. Does anyone know what this might be?
