AGE / VALUE:Help me choose a bike please posted by: Uni on 11/11/2008 at 6:57:37 AM
Will the 1982 Schwinn Voyager 11.8 and the 1977 Raleigh Super Course make very good loaded touring, and commuter bikes in their stock configuration? Please explain why or why not? Thanks in advance for your help.

I recently was given a BCA "Mountain" by a co-worker. I've been trying to figure out what exactly this bike's model name is and some general background info on it. I only call it a "Mountain" because it says it on the seat.

It's a lugged frame, and what I can either describe as being really early Shimano parts because they only say SIS on them, no model, or they are just really low end. The index shifters are plastic and broken. Both wheels are aluminium, and the tires look like a Hybrid-style tread. The rear break line runs along the top side of the High Tube held in place by little welded gates, the rear deraillure wire runs along the right hand side of the down tube, but along the top of the bottom bracket as it passes underneath a little saddle shaped gate that directs it from the angle of the downtube along the chainstay. I don't know if this is significant, but maybe it'll jog somebody's memory. The seat stays have BCA stamped into their ends right where they meet the seat tube.

I know BCA is a Ross off-shoot and probably nothing more than a late-80's equivalent to that which you find in Wal-mart. But I'd like a bit more info on the bike if possible.

I'd say it's mid 80's at the latest. You didn't identify the crankset...looks like an early Deore or TA which is he most interesting part of the bike. The quality of mtn bikes started to ramp up quickly after this type of bike.

Wait a minute...this is a lightweight forum and that thing weighs 40 lbs. Wrong discussion board.

I'll see if I can't get some info off the Cranks. There is nothing on this bike that has a model name to it except the seat.

There's a tooth guard for the cranks that I haven't taken off yet, and maybe there is some more info behind it.

Here's a picture of the rear deraillure, and yeah that guard came with the bike.

Thanks for the theory so far, Warren.

RE:AGE / VALUE: posted by Ryan on 11/11/2008 at 9:53:57 AM
The crankset is Shimano Biopace.
by: 71.241.61.210

RE:RE:AGE / VALUE: posted by Warren on 11/11/2008 at 3:16:37 PM
That would date the bike to the late 80's, as you suspected. Biopace was usually matched up with 7 speed drivetrains.

There's likely not much more to say about it. Not valuable or collectable. Just a bike, like most of them

Anyone have any thoughts about a Peugeot Vitus. All components marked Peugeot, seat tube says Made in France, and down tube has 181 which I believe is reference to type of tubing. Unfortunately has helomatic(believe that's what it's called) which I understand isn't very good. Seems like a nicely built lightweight. Comments appreciated.

I don't recognize the trademark, but the cranks look similar to TA and Stronglight models (which they're not). Are the pedal eyes French threaded? (Again, look at Classic Rendezvous. I'm sure someone on that list knows this trademark.)

That chainring combo is a 5 pin TA track adapteur. The crankarm mark looks like the old BSA crossed rifle logo. You're sure they are arrows huh?

That's a very cool crankset...there were many french builders who made their own components. Try to find out who made these although I agree with David, they look like Stronglights rebranded for someone else.

AGE / VALUE:Trash Pile Bike posted by: Chad Sims on 11/4/2008 at 9:06:04 PM
This bike came from a trash pile and only needed a new saddle, rear tire/tube, and a front hub overhaul. I would like to know what kind of bike it is, what its worth, and what it used to look like, ya know all the cool stuff.

What I know: The deraileurs, brakes and i assume brake levers are Shimano 105 Golden Arrow, its got a 6 speed rear cog and a double front ring with no markings that i can see, the crank just says custom the handlebars (before i bullhorned 'em) were regular dropped style and it said "chair master" stamped on em, the stem says "sa forged', the wheels say super champion mixtie, the shifters are on the downtube and are 105 and read "light action" on them.

the unknown: Pedal brand, frame size or dimensions, frame brand or year, value, hub brand, factory look and purpose

Thanks for any and all help!!

If you are truly interested in helping me, i can email some pictures....i dont have a website to post them on.

I forgot to mention that i am assuming its japanese because of the writing on teh handlebars it says JAPAN in a funny font and im also assuming its from the early 80's because of the golden arrow components. Also its a lugged frame, the derailer cables run under the bottom bracket part of the frame. There is a number on the bottom that says 242139207. Other than that no markings, decals or anything on the frame thats visible. Again, thanks for all help.

AGE / VALUE:Jetter...Bit of an oddball? posted by: Paul on 11/3/2008 at 10:49:37 PM
Hi all,
I picked a weird little 10 spd out of the trash this past weekend. Looks like it has been outdoors for a while. The head badge says Jetter Made in Somerset, NJ.
My Google search for "Jetter bicycles" yielded 2 pages of pretty useless results and no pics at all. Menotomy has never heard of a Jetter. Anyway, this particular Jetter is a little rough. It's a small ladies/older girls bike with 24" chromed steel wheels. The chain is junk (rusted solid)the Suntour derailleurs may be frozen (but it may just be the frozen chain)and the Vetta saddle is hard as a rock. Otherwise, it's not terrible. The paint and markings are pretty decent. It has Weinmann center pulls, Suntour aluminum stem shifters, aluminum stem and bars (the bars are shaped like a D with the straight side cut off and have plastic grips), seat post is aluminum. So...anybody know this bike/brand and whether I should ebay it, part it out or put it back in the trash? Any info would be appreciated!

A guy a work just gave me a Jetter 12 speed road bike that had been in his garage "a long time" It has 27" rims and shimano 'rs' D/R's and shifters. The frame is in good condition and the paint is in good shape for its age, however old that is. The brakes are shot, no rear D/R cable, the front D/R actually works, but basically every componet on it is worn out. I am thinking about bringing it back as an 6-8 speed flat bar.
It has a 'Gregg's Bike town sticker on it. and the same head badge as yours. There is a Gregg's Bike Town, if you Google it in the same area as Somerset. I might call them to see if I can get more info on it.

That sounds exactly like my bicycle! I had a ten-speed, ladies' bar, 24" bicycle from April 1988 (early 12th birthday present) until two years ago. Actually it's still sitting in my basement, in pretty good shape, still lovely blue.

Two suggestions: fix it and sell it, or donate it to a local boys/girls club or similar organization. There is probably one in your area that will take old bicycles, rehab them, and then either give them to kids or sell them for fundraisers.

While looking for a bike (at garage sales)for my teenage daughter today. I came across a jeeter,Somerset NJ bike in mint condition. I bought it for $10 and just finished cleaning it up. For an additional $3 in Brillo pads for the chrome, it now looks almost like new and rides great. I figured i'd look it up online so........ here I am. If you know anything about this bike, email me.

The Jetter mystery of Sumerset, NJ continues.... Last week I brought home from the dump a sweet blue lugged framed Jetter 3 speed. It was missing the saddle, seatpost, rear caliper and lever, but the paint, decals, headbadge and gold around the lugs is nearly perfect.

The steel rims and the chrome fenders are a bit rusty, but I believe salvageable. The cotter crankset BB might be toast(I have the drive side cup soaked with PB Blaster. All in all the bike has potential--- just not for me because the frame is too small and I live in the mountains of NH.

Any thoughts?

Ok so we got the somerset nj... I own an Allentown, pa JETTER bicycle. I found it abandoned with bent up wheels looking as thought it failed someone and then that Someone gave the bicycle a good smash off The ground or two before leaving it. It was plainly abandoned at a super late hour I. A broad mainway.. But since i've made it nicely rideable very simple skinny decently lightweight it's now singlespeed just a front brake 700x23c tires also decently light wheels.. All black chrome ended/tipped fork. Very snubby stem... And it's now a fairly average in my opinion single speed bicycle build but gets a mention quite frequently. Very sharp ski by barred look. Small frame haven't measured . But I think most notably the city and state my bicycle me is from. This jetter bicycle me is just one story too simple and early for the Internet it seems . So l figured I'd add just this me more mere useless word I. The topic of the jetted bicycle.

I just Bought a green Jetter Bike from Goodwill, and I talked them down to $10 since it needs new tires. The one I have is called the "quest". It looks like a VERY early attempt at a mountain bike. It has road bike geometry but with 26" wheels and beefy tires. Also the other weird thing is it has a awesome looking one-piece stem and handlebar combo. And it has the gearing ratio of a road bike with a standard double crank. It'll be a great commuter. Sorry I know nothing else, but I thought I'd post this because it seems like most people are finding 700c Jetter's. This bike looks very odd and rare.

I scored a free men's jetter frame with just the cranks, stem and cruiser bars. Mine also has that great light blue paint job. It has gone through a couple of changes since the first time i built it up and has always been great to ride until recently. I think the bottom bracket is messed up, does anyone have any suggestions for a good replacement that's not too expensive?
Thanks for posting that link I've never been able to find anything on this bike. I did find a picture of one just like mine when I first got it but it has been taken down since then.

I had a brand new Jetter 10 speed bike in the 80's. WOn it as a prize for a Diabetes Bike-A-Thon, rode over 50 miles on a POS bike, and a businessman in the B-A-Thon donated his prize to me.

I rode that bike forever, until late years in high school and then it was stolen. It was royal blue, and I loved it. It was a great bike. I think it had 27" wheels, and I do beleive it was a 10 speed, ladies bike. All the boys in my area said it was a really nice bike.

I don't know if any of this helps, doubt it, but just thought I'd add my piece, since mine was not a mountain bike, or a BMX bike- just know all the bikers on my block were impressed by it.

I bought a blue Jetter mens 10 speed back in 1982. I still have it and rode it a couple times every year. It's been kept in the cellar and evey year I clean it up and put a fine coat of oil on it to fight the rust from the dampness in the cellar, just a few scratches and little pitting on chrome pedal bars.Replaced tubes and tires once and the original shimano hardware has worked flawlessly over the years only replacing brake pads.I never saw or heard of another one until this site. Having more time now been riding it 5-10 miles a few times a week now.

My mom used to work for Jetter Bicylces in Somerset! She was the secretary there. I was in 5th grade when she started working there and I loved that place! They had this really cool white freestyle BMX type bike and I eventually got it for my birthday. I loved that bike. Anthony's was the name of a bike shop in the area. I don't know if they're still there or not. They were good bikes though made by a guy who tried to make it but eventually he closed the doors.

I have a dark green Jetter, huge primitive mountain bike-type frame. I bought it from a friend for $50 in 1993. He had purchased it in the early '80s from his local bike shop. It's still my everyday-around-town ride.

There also used to be a fleet of Jetters at a local bike shop here. Not for sale, but rental. I had never before (and never since) seen so many Jetters in one driveway.

Found this site as I was reminiscing about the bike I had as a kid in the mid-80s- a Jetter girls single speed, coaster brakes, and a sweet white to bright blue fade... No idea on the measurements/technical specs at this point- gave it away ages ago, but it was a wonderful bike on which to go exploring that served me well for several years.

Really clean with new white cables and bar tape
Moxy crank, Nitto Bar stem and Nitto Olympiade Handlebars
The front and rear derailleurs and shifters are Suntour
New Shimano chain.
The saddle is a Belt/Fujitsu leather, riveted saddle
The brake levers are newer Shimano wired to its original Dia-Compe brakes.
The wheel hubs are Suntour and Ukai rims.
The tires are Specialized and Kenda.
I have the original Dia-Compe brake levers if they want to take it back to original
It also has oringinal metal cages with matching red, leather straps and original, metal hand pump.
Thanks for any info.

If it's in really good condition - I would think around $200 plus or minus. I've only had one of these - actually, I still have it - but it was so rusted I just ended up sanding it and painting it. The Belt leather saddle was pretty distorted and cracked - and the chrome was all rusted badly - and the components were pretty oxidized, too. The bars and stem were good - and the Maxy cranks were good.

AGE / VALUE:Info. about my Nishiki posted by: Kate Ridge on 11/2/2008 at 7:59:16 PM
I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what year and model my Nishki is. I bought it and it had been repainted so it doesn't have any distinguishing marks on it. Here's the serial number KS 270693 with a W printed below. I previously read on here that KS means that it was made by American Eagle? or Kamura? or something like that? Can anyone help? I just bought the frameset so I have no idea what any of the components were. The bb is english threaded though so I know it's pretty much definitely from either Japan or Taiwan.
Thanks

You've really got it identified as a lower end sport model from the early 80's, regardless of model number. Its an example of what good value those bikes were. Suntour drops and gears, alloy components, nimble geometry and inexpensive.

Great rider.

It's a 1981 Miyata 710, semi pro series. Somehow the model name is not on the top bar.

MISC:Identify this Miyata posted by: Uni on 11/1/2008 at 8:48:42 AM
I picked up this bike for a few Abrahams this morning. Hopefully someone can tell me more about it. It does not have a model name on it, just Miyata on the down tube. This appears to be a lower to mid level sport model. The wheelbase is only about 38.5 inches. Thanks in advance for your help.

Miyata 12 Speed
Sakake Custom Road Champion Handle bar
SR stem
Head badge (glued on) says Miyata Hand made in Japan
Fork says Miyata 1024 high tensile
Diacompe side pull brakes
27" Sunshine alloy quick release wheels for Scharder valve
Pedals ??? see pictures
Suntour rear dropouts with adjusters
CroMo tubing (according to sticker double butted?)
Crank says custom (nut has Susino on it?)
Chain wheel says Custom
Suntour VX-S rear derailleur
Suntour front derailleur
Suntour Power Shift Levers

I've got a Dolphin 300z I'm converting to single-speed. Made in japan. Awesome butting, cool paint. Very rare. That's all I know.

Does anybody know what happened to the Allegro website. There used to be a very interesting site dealing exclusively with the Swiss made Allegro bikes. I'm in the process of restoring a frame from the sixties.
