RESTORATION TIPS - PAINT:   Any help with a "Habsburg" 3 speed bike? posted by: William Gaskins on 3/21/2009 at 9:03:43 PM
I just bought an old bike at a garage sale to fix up for my dad, he has been wanting a 3 speed to ride around the neighborhood. It's labels proclaim Habsburg several places and it has a "coat of arms" on the fron above the forks saying the same. it was made in germany, has a headlamp with the generator on the front wheel, a leather saddle, it is also labeled "europa style" and there are some other labels but since it is in my parents garage and I am at my house I can't remember what they said and it is too late to drive over and look! If anyone knows anything about this brand of bike and possible where I could get re-print decals it would be greatly apprecieated! Oh, I believe it is a '68, at least those are the last 2 digits of the serial number... Thanks!

RESTORATION TIPS - PAINT:   Spilt oil on tires now slightly sticky posted by: Ken on 3/3/2009 at 4:45:37 AM
Hi, I spilt a few drops of a SA gear oil/silicone oil mixture onto my tires and now the part where the droplets landed (they were only discovered in the morning) are sticky, a bit gooey. I tried to wash the tires thoroughly with soap and water, and then with clean water, but the tires are still sticky.

Can anyone please advise what I can do to minimise or stop any further damage? Are they still safe to ride?

The tires are rare 26"x1 3/8 gumwalls that I recently acquired! Please help.

use goo gone. you can find it at ace hardware and the like. the only possibility with using it is that it might leave oil streaks on the tires.

I have my son's Stingray Junior from the 70s and want to restore it for my grandson. Is the size smaller than what you are all calling a Stingray on these boards? If I order a seat from someone selling reproduction banana seats for a Stingray will it work on the Junior? Where can I find out more about the value of this model?

  Replies:
          RE:RESTORATION TIPS - MISC:   Stingray Junior posted by jj on 2/10/2009 at 3:54:34 AM
Yes, the Sting-Ray Junior is a little smaller than a regular Sting-Ray.
The reproduction seats will be a little big, but they'll fit.
There are volumes of info on this bike in the archives here.
There are price listings in the 2 price guides at the top of this page.

RESTORATION TIPS - PAINT:   Huffy Sunny Day Ride posted by: Ted on 1/28/2009 at 9:15:43 AM
hi, i have a huffy sunny day ride from around 1970, maybe a bit earlier. bright yellow with orange graphics. there's a lot of rust, esp. on the painted fenders. tried to clean up, and it's better, but i'm thinking about a repaint of the fenders. problem is, there are two narrow orange pinstripes on each fender...any advice on how to replicate these when i repaint, or should i just repaint plain yellow or orange or something? any advice is appreciated.

Hi, can anyone help me locate a sign and clamps, or provide dimensions for one, that would fit on a current Worksman LGB cycle truck. Does the sign from the old Schwinn cycle truck have the same dimensions? I'm talking about the advertising sign that a bakery, pizza place, etc. would use to promote their business, etc.

RESTORATION TIPS - PAINT:   Tricycle for my daughter posted by: Tim on 1/8/2009 at 8:54:37 PM
I am desperately trying to restore my old tricycle for my daughter. It is a Hedstrom stand behind tricycle that is in fairly good shape, but the tires and seat are too far gone to be salvaged. It was made somewhere around 1970. Can anyone give ANY info to where I might be able to find these parts? Your time is very much appreciated!

Your local bike shop should be able to order tires.
Also, look on craigslist for a "donor" trike to use for parts.

RESTORATION TIPS - MISC:   Lucas "King of.." headlamp posted by: Dave on 12/30/2008 at 3:22:55 PM
I recently purchased a Lucas KOTR headlamp and a battery for it. I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to install the battery. The battery is a 1289 4.5v "boxed" battery that has two (short and long) charge arms that come out from the top.

The headlamp has a battery placement inside and one charge arm that I have no clue what it touches. I already had a little spark occur.

Any help with the installation?

I can't help with the battery but as an owner of a 1953 MG those more familiar with Lucas may respond better if you say Lucas "Prince of darkness".

What year is the bike?
There are at least three iterations of that design, prewar, postwar, and 50s era- maybe more. There were background colors and little curlicues. I asked here (several years ago) whether anyone knew when they changed; never got a flat answer although there was some discussion.

RESTORATION TIPS - PAINT:   Vintage Schwinn Stardust posted by: Freakmoots on 11/2/2008 at 5:43:34 AM
Just picked up a very cool Stardust at Denver's Veloswap. The registration sticker says 1972, but it could be older than that. The seller told me the paint color is "Chrysler Blue" but my brother, who has detailed vintage hot rods, said the original paint on the bike has probably faded so the new paint probably won't match. There are quite a few scrapes and scratches that I would really like to touch up, or at the very least try to protect from getting any more rusty. Other than paying lots of $ for an entirely new paint job, anyone have any tips for how I should approach this?

RESTORATION TIPS - MISC:   Gobby Trike posted by: Jake on 10/15/2008 at 9:03:02 PM
I recently came across an old trike at a yard sale and picked it up for $35. I decided i wanted to restore the trike and have had trouble trying to identify the make. I came acros a tiny sticker with a patent # on it and I found out it is a Gobby Tricycle with twin chain drive. Other than the patent information I can't seem to find out anything else about the bike or the manufacturer. I found an archived posting on this web site from february 05 but no one had any insite about the trike. I've kind of stalled on the restoration because I'd like to learn more about it so I can restore it correctly. Any information would help. Thanks

          RE:RESTORATION TIPS - MISC:   Gobby Trike posted by Stephanie on 1/13/2009 at 10:21:48 PM
To be honest I don't know a whole lot about the whole manufacturing of the Gobby bikes other that it was my grandfather's business. From what I've been told, they were manufactured in Phoenix, AZ by my grandfather, Alan Gobby, through the early 70's and was eventually sold to Buster Brown. I try to get information from my father about the business but I guess the whole selling out was kind of a bitter subject. If anyone finds out anything, I would like to know as well. If you like I should still have a package of the metallic bike stickers for the bikes and I can send you one (It's a black sticker with a big red "G" and "obby" in silver). :)

          RE:RE:RESTORATION TIPS - MISC:   Gobby Trike posted by Stephanie on 1/13/2009 at 10:53:43 PM
With some quick research I found out that the patent for the Gobby trike was sold to Workman (www.workmancycles.com).

Just picked up a Gobby trike. Need info on replacing rear wheels and finding the right sized tires. One rear wheel rim and spookes bent badly. Would like to replace but the large axle size seems to be unique to Gobby trike. I guess I need to find a source for 26" wheels with 14 mm axle size and set up for tires 37-590. Anyone know where to find parts? Or is it possible to buy a modern size wheel and retrofit it to the larger axle size?

Bought an old bike at an estate sale. It needs to be restored. I'm trying to find out the exact kind of bike and year of the bike. It says these things distinctly:
AMF--Roadmaster--pilot only on tank (no jet mention). It has a look of late 40-s early 50's bikes. The frame number is J98648. Has headlight clamp (where there was one) on the front fender not the frame. Has a star sprocket (evenly spaced same size stars). Has a horn button on air flow tank. Can you give me any clues about the age?

Just picked up today a Gobby model # 7010, EZ Ride Explorer in blue. Appears to be a 1971-72 vintage by the May 1971 date code on the Sturmey-Archer hub.There is also a 4 digit number on the bottom bracket which may be a serial #. It has 26" wheels, Trike is complete and is overall good condition, although it does need some work. It has a Schwinn seat, not sure if it came from factory that way.Also, the basket is currently held on to the basket/fender frame with plastic zip ties, does anyone know if these originally came with some sort of clamp? How about the Schwinn seat? I'm also curious about the weight capacity, as it only has a single down tube.

I restored an old Gobby Trike back when i was 12 years old. I brought it home in my lil' red wagon. Im now a master mechanic and customize motorcycles in my spare time, so you can say i had a knack for building things at a young age. back then you couldn't find any info on the manufacture or even parts for that matter. the internet was still a new thing that few had access to at that time. It came out beautiful! I was able to find chrome rims and fenders at the local biek shop and sprayed it with a gloss black paint. Sold her a few years ago. It was my first restoration so it was kinda hard to see it go. Still didn't have a clue were it was made or what year it was. Interesting to find out through this website that it was made here in my hometown of Phoenix, Az!
