WANTED:   INFO posted by: cassie on 11/22/2006 at 11:28:35 AM
I would like to find out any info or helpful hints for beginners to this collecting lifestyle. My dad is considering buying vintage bikes and restoring them. I would like to surprise him with some info. If anyone has insider's hints, etc. please let me know. Any info (small or big), just let me know. He has said something about "fat wheels" or "fly wheels". Probably interested in 30's-60's, leisure not racing bikes. We are in the North Central TX area, so any show/swap meet info is also appreciated! Thank you in advance!!!

Go to yard sales, flea markets and your local Good Will and Salvation Army stores looking for bikes.
The era of bikes he is interested in (30's-60's, leisure not racing bikes) contains some of the wildest, coolest and most unique cycles ever made.
When you locate something interesting, before you buy it check the price guide here at oldroads and look at auction prices on eBay for that particular cycle.
Also - stay away from any bike that has been restored or re-painted. An original in average condition is can be worth more than a restored bike in perfect condition.

STUPID BIKE TRICKS:   Fast 20 inch bike posted by: Ron on 11/17/2006 at 7:18:25 AM
When I was about 10 years old I had a 20 inch Western Flyer and I loved to ride with the big kids who were 3 or 4 years older, and they all had 26 inch bikes. (This was in the 1940's) The big kids said I could ride with them if I could keep up with them on one of their long rides, I never could keep up with them with my little bike until one day a bicycle repair man showed me how to change my sprocket from the little stock 20 inch to a bigger 26 inch sprocket. Well from then on it started out a little slower but once I got rolling on that little 20 inch bike I not only could stay with the big kids but I could pass some of them. This was before there were different speed bikes with gear changers. The funny thing was although I was not peddeling that fast my little 20 inch wheel were really turning fast. LOL

God what a great site -- keep up the good work. also do you remember summer and you couldn't wait to ride? you never see kids riding in my area anymore let alone working on them.seems like a flat tire can be a death penalty for a bike anymore. maybe i'm just a old fart trying to relive my youth but I swear we had more cheap fun. thanks for letting me vent.

          RE:MISC:   thanks posted by nate on 10/10/2006 at 8:00:05 AM
I agree with you on both counts.
1) this is great web site
2) kids don't ride bikes (or do anything else on their own outside anymore). They don't know how to do anything physical or mechanical.

That's an old one, I believe. Probably turn-of-the-century.
