WANTED:   Copy of Cycle Building and Repairing posted by: Mike P on 3/1/2003 at 11:57:38 PM
Looking for a copy or more likely a Photocopy of a book called "cycle Building and Repairing" by Paul N. Hasluck, published by Cassels Ltd in 1897. The NY library has a copy but would not lend it to me up here in eastern Canada and I thought maybe someone here would have a copy or access to a copy that they could run through a Xerox machine, as I am not too concerned about 105 year old copyrights. I would love to send money to cover copying and postage if anyone could help me with this. Thanks...Mike

MISC:   Safety Bicycle Repro available at... posted by: Mike P on 2/27/2003 at 1:26:12 AM
I didn't believe it either, but you can now buy a repro of an early safety bike at Walmart!
True, it says Barbie on the frame but it has solid rubber tires and more importantly, a fixed gear drive with NO brakes!!!
Can an adult version be far behind?

Haha! Cute.
True, too, if you think about it.

Doubt we'll see it in an adult version.

Wait - they exist already! Ever see a bike messinger on a fixed gear bike?

          RE:RE:MISC:   Safety Bicycle Repro available at... posted by Mike P on 2/28/2003 at 3:17:08 AM
But without brakes and on solid tires?

I can mount solid tires for you if you want! Just send me the wheels. Be the envy of you friends and no flats, just don't mind the weight.

WANTED:   White 28" Tires posted by: Tom on 2/25/2003 at 5:16:59 AM
Is there a company that makes all white tires for the old 28" American bikes from the early 1900's. The rims I have are 25" across. I can almost fit a 700c tire on them. The tires I need are glued on. I looked at Coker but they have black and are very expensive. Any othe companies selling the white tires.

Hi there,
I Have just had a Solid tyred Safety come into my Showroom to sell. It is Diamond framed machine and Dates from around c.1889/90.
Is is ridable and has an oily rag finish over the bare metal.
You could either leave it like this and just use it, or you could nickel and paint it.
The price is £1,550, which is about $2,500 US.
Le tme know if It's what you are after, and I can get some pic's done to send to you.
Tim Gunn, The Old Bicycle Company, England.

          RE:RE:WANTED:   Solid Tire Safety posted by Mike Patterson on 1/21/2003 at 3:44:08 PM
Thanks for the notice Tim, but I think what I have in mind is a rusty, maybe bent frameset with a few scraps of parts hanging off it and, presumably, a lower price tag. Your bike sounds great but I'm looking for much more of a project. Maybe I'm just barking at the moon, thanks again....Mike

          RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   Solid Tire Safety posted by Tim Gunn on 1/21/2003 at 7:04:52 PM
Thanks Mike,
A shame you never wanted one about 3 months back, as I had just the machine for you.
It was found under a hedge in Herefordshire/England.
And was pretty hidious, I sorted it though and it is now back on the road.
Good Luck with your search.
Tim Gunn
