WANTED:   ARMSTRONGS? posted by: PAT on 4/1/2010 at 10:18:03 PM
I was looking at some posts on here from last year about vintage Armstrong bikes and would appreciate information about any of those classic beauties that may be for sale.

I had one back about 1963-1965, dark blue in color and I LOVED that thing. With spring already here, I miss getting out to ride and would dearly love to get an old Armstrong (short frame) to ride.

Thanks very much and Happy Easter!

Many thanks.

Here's the results of last year's Copake bike auction (the 2010 edition is a couple weeks away now)
http://www.copakeauction.com/bicycles/2009/catalog_BW.pdf
You can download pictures from them too, if you want to.
Last year probably wasn't a very good year for sellers; a lot of the posted estimates were high, but a few surprises went high too.
I saw five or six Columbia chainlesses in it, with a ladies' going for $750 and another for less than $200 if I recall correctly. There was even a lot containing two frames for parts.
Original condition makes the difference.
I also noticed a couple of antique lamps brought a good price.
The Copake site makes for great reading...
Any chance we could see a picture of your bike?

WANTED:   Girls Sears Spaceliner posted by: Donna Gaglioti on 3/25/2010 at 4:06:28 PM
What I'm looking for is a nose piece for my girls Sears Spaceliner bicycle. I tried to use a boys, and it doesn't work. I also don't know really, what year it is. I'm trying to learn all I can about this, which isn't to much. But I want it to be original. Look, I'm 65 years old, love my bike and I'm trying to live a little longer. Please help. Thank you.

look at the hub, it should have some numbers on it,two are the year (i.e. 61 for 1961) the others should be the month (i.e. 5 for may) and the others the number in the production line (i.e. 150 for 150th bike made in 1961 or whatever year)

          RE:RE:WANTED:   Girls Sears Spaceliner posted by ken on 4/2/2010 at 10:40:52 AM
I'm not sure what Stephen means here. The hubs Murray used were not Murray products; the coaster brakes were Bendix, and the front hubs probably came from various suppliers. The original front hub on mine, bought new at Sears in '63, says made in Germany on it, nothing else. And if a hub was numbered, it wouldn't have been made for a particular frame. The frame has a 15 digit serial number, divided 3, 6, and 6, that does not have any two consecutive digits that would yield a year between 52 and 68.
As far as replacing that headlight nacelle goes, it's bound to be hard to find. You could buy another bike...

Skid, I'm wondering, did they use 40 heavy-gauge spokes on those like they did on the standard Twinn?

I checked - they are 12 gauge spokes and there are 36 per wheel.

Can somebody give me some information about a Raleigh bike called an ESSEX? I'm assuming that Essex was a smaller company that Raleigh "absorbed" but I'm not sure. There is a nice looking Essex (Ladies)for sale on my local craigslist and I was curious if anyone could give me some background.

MANY THANKS!

MISC:   Fixie Conversion? posted by: PAT on 3/22/2010 at 7:36:55 PM
Just saw on craigslist pictures of a Raleigh Space Rider that appears to be a fixed gear (ie: NO gears) going for $100. It seems to need cleaning up and the seller doesn't know what year it is but my question is this: is it possible to install 3 gears onto a no gear bike? Is it "major surgery" or a fairly simple procedure and about how much should I expect to pay for this?

I do want a bike that has coaster brake and one hand brake so advice on this will be welcome and appreciated. I hope this is the spring that finally sees me out riding around on my own Raleigh.

MANY THANKS!

Thats a good buy, but i wouldn't mess with the gears. Although if you wanted to you would have to find a 3 speed hub and wheel and install it on the bike, along with the cable for it.

Thanks, Stephen, for your comment. I'm going to take a look and "test ride" the bike in a few days.

Hi, I have recently found a bike and I cannot find any info about it. It is a Korlis boys bike. It says from Czech. I don't really know too much more than that about it. I was wondering if anyone could give me any info including a rough estimate of what its worth? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Pat
