MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Bike Bug Motor by AquaBug International posted by: Doug Crawford on 2/15/2000 at 7:29:03 AM
Looking for a replacement drive wheel (new or slightly used
for a Bike Bug motor manufactured by AquaBug International.
It is the common type of motor for a bike that mounts
on the front wheel and the operator pulls down on a
shifter to engage. Any help would be appreciate.

HI
I have a friend who just purchased a Bike Bug and we are looking for any info on them, history, etc. It runs great and he is looking to sell it .?????

          RE:MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Bike Bug Motor by AquaBug International posted by Eric on 12/13/2000 at 4:30:21 PM
I dont know if this wil help any, but my dads good friend found a bike bug stored in the back of his lawnmower shop. I came on the internet to look for the exact same part to see if we could get it going. They must wear quickly. we got it started by using the old wheel and heating it up and putting a piece of pvc over it. Then we just ground notches in the pvc to make it grip, and put a large washer and bolt to keep it from sliding off. It works okay, but we really are looking for the original part.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:Huret company posted by: Tony D. on 2/9/2000 at 7:34:31 AM
Hello,

Anyone have information about mopeds/motorized bicycles made by Huret (French I think)? Are they 2-stroke engines? What's the fuel to oil ratio?

Thanks!

MISC:Identification posted by: Stephen on 2/5/2000 at 7:25:50 PM
We have an old motorized bicycle. The only identification we can find on it is a profile of an Indian Head with Chieftan written under the picture on a brass plate above the front fork. The engine is an after market Wizzer engine. The front end has springs on it. Does anyone have any information about such a bicycle.

  Replies:
          RE:MISC:Identification posted by Bob P. on 2/8/2000 at 6:27:59 AM
It might be an Indian bicycle with a Whizzer kit, and it could be
worth $4,000 to $8,000 or more, depending on condition.

Do your research and don't sell it to anyone without learning more about it.

          RE:MISC:Identification posted by Kurt M on 2/11/2000 at 8:00:12 PM
I believe you have a Huffman bicycle. The Chieftan head badge suggests it was orginally of Canadian origin. If you've got a picture I could make a positive ID for you

          RE:RE:MISC:Identification posted by ChristopherRobin on 6/26/2000 at 2:01:57 PM
Folks will try to hand you cash money and try to buy it before you find out exactly what you have. Get a phone number and say that you will call them when you find out more. You can always put it up for E-bay auction. Sounds really neat!!

AGE / VALUE:Earnshaw Bicycle Motor posted by: Matt on 1/27/2000 at 3:46:49 AM
I have an Earnshaw Bicycle motor, complete except for any throttle cable/control (not sure of what it may have had). It's in good shape, gas tank is good, solid, no dents, motor spins freely, not frozen, still has the spark plug in it. It was mounted to an old rustbucket AMF Roadmaster ballooner frame. Wondering what the age and value of this motor may be. I'm looking to trade or sell. Looking for sting ray or off-brand muscle bike stuff in trade or a straight cash deal. Please give me an honest read on the price and maybe you can make me a deal. Not out to gouge anyone, and more importantly, not out to get gouged. Your candor is greatly appreciated. Thanks. Matt.

Mounts are in good shape and are complete.

          RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:Earnshaw Bicycle Motor posted by Buzz on 1/27/2000 at 5:57:58 AM
Where does the motor mount? Over the front wheel
or in the frame?

          RE:RE:RE:AGE / VALUE:Earnshaw Bicycle Motor posted by Matt on 1/27/2000 at 2:52:53 PM
Mounts over the rear wheel like a rear rack. I guess it could probably be mounted up front, currently on the back though.

MISC:INFORMATION NEEDED posted by: Terry Dill on 1/21/2000 at 6:20:37 PM
I have a Montgomery Wards balloon tire bike from the 40's or older. I received it as a kid, in well used condition around 1960. It had truss rods on the front fork and has double top tubes (side by side) as well as double bottom tubes. The chaingard is merly a flange around the sproket. It is a very heavy bike. Anyone know what model, or when it was made? I would like to restore it.

  Replies:
          RE:MISC:INFORMATION NEEDED posted by bikeyard on 2/17/2000 at 4:50:46 AM
Do you want to sell it? Sounds like a 39 or 40. Do you have any photos?

          RE:RE:MISC:INFORMATION NEEDED posted by Terry Dill on 2/17/2000 at 5:48:29 PM
Nope. I've owned it a long time...over 35 years. I am looking for parts to restore it.

Post some pictures in the picture database or on

different models.
