FOR SALE:   anyone know how much this is worth? posted by: melissa on 1/22/2009 at 5:58:12 PM
I have a 1974 Butavus 21", mix tour, 10 speed bike. I'm having trouble finding anything else like it on the internet. Can anyone give me some more info on it? It's in really good shape. I even have the original receipt.

MISC:   Drake Bicycle?? posted by: kim on 1/22/2009 at 10:50:17 AM
I am trying to find any reference information regarding a bike my father left me. The only other things I know about the bike are: rim says "26x 1 3/8" made in England; front metal plate says "Drake" with a ship in the middle and crown above it; below ship says "made in England". It is a women's 3-speed bike, blue with gold pinstripe, and the center down-bar says "Guaranteed Genuine English Lightweight". All brake assembly and wheel hubs bear the name "Sturmey Archer, England". The only numbers we can find are under the seat mount bar, and those numbers are 6153B. Any idea how old this is and what kind of value?? I have photo's, if someone wanted to look at the bike. Thanks, Kim

          RE:MISC:   Drake Bicycle posted by Christopher on 1/24/2009 at 8:10:39 AM
Your Drake is worth about 50.00- 75.00 It's a nice little city bike for around town crusing or commuting to and from work. It is a basic, good quality bike pretty much the same frame and componets was made and just the name and decals and paint scheme was different between bikes this is what you would call a "tier two" or B- grade model but there was nothing b- grade about the quality. The actual Raleigh bikes had dynohubs light kits, locking forks and better leather seats. What I am saying is there are no "Superbe" model Drakes. These were made by Raleigh in Nottingham, England in their huge factory. Drake was a made up name by Raleigh, there was no actual Drake bicycle company that Raleigh bought up. It is not like it's a Humber, or Rudge, or Phillips name, those were actual companies that Raleigh bought up or merged with. Drake could have been a brand that was made by Raleigh for a particular bicycle shop distributor chain as other brands were. I am not sure who commisioned the Drake from Raleigh and for what chain of stores. So the actual story on Drake I don't know. Any shop or distributor for shops could order up so many bicycles with any name they wanted. Raleigh would make up badges and decals for the customer.

Anyways, it uses the same bottom braket parts, headset parts as ALL THE OTHER RALEIGH MADE BIKES DO. So it does not say Raleigh on it, it does not use their Famous 531 Alloy lightweight tubing either. It is still a fine, little easy to ride bike and these are collectable and going up in value. I would buy this in a heartbeat at any rummage sale or estate / garage sale just to have and enjoy and restore it. At the kerb it would dissappear in a heartbeat by anybody. ENGLISH 3 SPEED BICYCLES ARE HOT AND IN DEMAND AND A TON OF FOLKS HAVE A PASSION FOR THEM AS I DO. SO YOU HAVE SOMETHING HERE! We wuld love to see pictures of the bike and of course, e- bay is unpredictable the bike could sell for more than what I quoted.

All and any parts you would need for this are easy to find just ask us, anytime.

They made a lot of these bikes, wheels, hubs, anything is able to be found. parts are common and interchangable with all other Raleigh bikes. Have fun with it.

MISC:   what is it worth posted by: therese on 1/21/2009 at 2:41:46 PM
I have an early 1950s Schwinn Traveler with a locking fork. I have the key and the original pamphlet that came with the bike.The locking fork still works. The bike has seen many street miles but can be restored; it has never been wrecked. Most parts are original. What is this worth? where can I find a buyer who might want this unusual find? thanks.

MISC:   help? posted by: dave on 1/19/2009 at 6:44:51 AM
i've got a 26 in frame that LOOKS LIKE the old classic schwinn with three bars (two smaller ones running under a bigger one). ya dig? anyway, a guy named KEN told me that this bike was NOT A SCHWINN and asked me for more clues about bike. the sprocket does have the 4 holed schwinn circles on the crank sprocket. it also has ROUND forks. almost as if the forks and frame don't match. can anyone help me out with any info that could tell me what the heck this bike frame is? thanks.

dave, what I said or meant to say was that's not a chicago schwinn number. The chinese schwinns and lots of other recent cantilevers have round forks, and I have no idea what their serial numbers look like. Take some pictures, will you, and email them to me if you have no way of posting them. Maybe we can figure it out.

MISC:   COLUMBIA BICYCLE posted by: jerome mcbride on 1/13/2009 at 8:57:42 AM
I found an old foldable columbia bicycle in a trash pile. Evidently it was not in the trash for long because it had very little rust on it. It seems that the base of the crank arms fold inward and the whole front fork detaches by means of a push button on the back of the headset. There are no bearing in the headset just some nylon type bushings. This bike also has a square seat post and is held in place by the seat binder acting as a cam lock device. The bike did not have the generator attached to the front fork but the lights front and rear were still intact as was some of the wiring. The front light has made in holland on the lense. the bike is made of 2" square tubing. the handle bars are released with a quick release lever. there is a sturmy archer 3 speed hub with a coaster brake on the rear and a weinmann front hand brake. Does anyone know what this bicycle is or how old it is.
