FOR SALE:†††Vintage Hawthrone Bicycle posted by: Donald O. on 6/27/2011 at 12:30:13 PM
This was my grandfathers bike and is in great condition. i Have googled it and found that it could be worth a lot if it is the right model. the only problems are; flat tires(but both are original) rusty rack above rear tire, and minimal rust on chain/sprocket cover. Email me if interested!!!!!!! I will consider EVERY offer as long as its a serious one, haha.

Nice one. Not the top of the line without tank and lights but I agree about the condition. It looks Schwinn-built ca. 1940. Check the heads of the seat post binder bolt and the stem bolt; see if there are maker marks there. don't worry about rust, and don't do anything that can't be undone. Let us know what you learn.

FOR SALE:†††2009 Giant Bowery Fixed Gear $550 OBO posted by: Nick on 6/23/2011 at 8:49:40 AM
Giant Bowery Fixed Gear, Medium frame. Perfect for riders between 5'7" and 5'10". Bike originally retailed for $700. This fixie has been very well cared for. I have made a few upgrades including a forged aluminum stem, and aluminum handlebars. A few minor scratches in the powder coat from various city bike racks but not to worry the frame is aluminum and rust is not a problem. The reason I am selling this bike is that I am planning a cross country bicycle trip and require something with a few more gears >< I will be sad to see this bike go I have enjoyed every ride.

If you are interested please feel free to email me or call me at 413-626-8744 Willing to send pictures if you want

FOR SALE:†††1958(?) Birmingham James English 24" posted by: PeaceByJesus on 6/21/2011 at 5:06:58 PM
Vintage, unrestored 24" Lady's Birmingham James bicycle, single speed with rod brakes, photos of which you should be able see here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/14822395@N03/sets/72157626954721598, the best match of which is a 1958 James Comet Roadster, Lady's Model J12, seen here: http://oldbike.wordpress.com/1950s-james-gents-bicycle/ The serial number on the frame is H05930

It rides well and easy, and fairly fast, even though it is only one speed, and i am impressed with the quality, esp. the heavy cable used for the rod brakes. But tires are worn, though rims are good. Lady's models are rarer than men's

Asking 100.- or B.O.

WANTED:†††RAPIDO TAIL LIGHT posted by: Brian on 6/19/2011 at 6:14:40 PM
Hey.
I recently picked up a 72 Rapido RFO folding bike.
Everything is pretty clean, I'm just missing the red lens cap from the tail light and the tool bag for under the saddle. It even has the tire pump in the seat bar. I'm not too worried about the bag, but i would like to find a light cover for the tail.

Photo is an example.
Please contact me with any information. Thanks.

FOR SALE:†††Vintage Folding "Land-Rover" Bike posted by: Chris on 6/18/2011 at 12:21:16 AM
I just bought an interesting folding bike from someone, but I have no clue of what it's worth or the history behind it.

It is a folding bike that looks quite old (60's or 70's maybe?). It has a rack that says made in Switzerland by the company Pletscher. Decals on the bike read "LAND-ROVER" and the front decal reads Montgomery Ward.

I did a bit of research and thought it may be a predecessor to the Land Rover folding bikes of the 90's, but not sure. I've googled it, but cannot find much of anything on this bike. If anyone has info on this bike or would like to purchase it, please let me know.

I might not be selling this anymore after all as it appears to be a re-badged version of the Puch Austrian folding bike from the 60's/70's. However, I'm open to any offer you might have.

Chris, might ride better if you turn the handlebar and stem 180 degrees. The front forks should bend towards the front.

I was just given a Land Rover "foot soldier folding messenger bike" that was supposedly used during the world war II period. Most of the logos still intact though some painted over. Seat has insignia on back "sie feg". Not sure if I want to try and restore or sell. Did you have any luck in finding out what near worth is? Bike still rideable. Thanks.

MISC:†††Westfield bike posted by: Catherine Walton on 6/14/2011 at 11:26:33 AM
I recently acquired a Westfield 3-Star DeLuxe from the 50's. I am looking to sell it, but do not know how to price it since I am not familiar with antique bike sales. Could anyone give me some advice? It has very little rusting, what appears to be all original components (including tires which are not dry rotting), though the brakes are a bit stiff. I have many detailed photos which I could email as well. Thanks in advance!

FOR SALE:†††Vintage Bike, possible BSA/Raleigh posted by: daniel on 6/13/2011 at 1:51:55 PM
Hi, I have an old bike, photos of which you should be able see here:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/14822395@N03/sets/72157626954721598/

I am not sure what make or year it is, but most likely it is a BSA/Raleigh, the latter having bought the former.

Part of the gold tag on the front is broken off, and is missing at least one letter of the brand, but what is left says AMES, and London & Birmingham underneath. If you zoom in the image of the front you should be able to see it.

The serial number is H05930, which according to what info on Raleigh bikes that i have found, would place its build date at 1973, but the same info says these were for high-end derailleur models built at the Carlton/Worksop facility, and are only supposed to have 4 number after the letter, and this one has 5.

The front brake looks almost identical to a BS5 seen here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/30647859@N08/4172755197/in/pool-594829@N23

The bike rides well, and i am impressed with the quality, esp. the heavy cable used for the brakes. It rides well, and fast, even though it is only one speed. But tires are worn.

The seat says Peacock and the name of the kickstand seems to be Shures\a.

Any info or offers are welcome.
