MISC:   Help! Info needed. posted by: KDAWG on 3/15/2005 at 1:29:06 PM
lo,
I have a question regarding my SUNTOUR, (your
old company), Mighty Shifter - 2 Ratcheting
Retrofriction 5-SPD Thumbshifter Shift Lever with a
22.2mm inner clamp diameter and 25 reverse clicks,
which must be indexed. The model number of it is
LS-2200. I was wondering what original component group
this thumbshifter came in. Does it come in a group
with the Mighty-6 freewheel and Mighty Click GT Rear
Derailleur and Mighty Click 10 Front Derailleur? Did a
SUGINO Mighty chainwheel come with this original
bundle? Which one did? The Mighty Comp, Super Mighty,
Mighty Tour, Grand Mighty, what? The Mighty Click 10
Front Derialleur had an 18T capacity and a 28.6mm
clamp. It also almost fully resembled the Compe-V
front derailleur with the 5 holes on the front cage,
18T capacity, 28.6mm clamp, etc. Can you please help
me out? I'm in a very desperate need of help.

Regards,

Kevin

I have something to add. Can somebody find out the model numbers of the Suntour Mighty Click GT Rear and Mighty Click 10 Front Derailleurs, Suntour Mighty freewheels (also find out the number of speeds available for it that Suntour offered and the offered gear ratios) and the Mighty chainwheel by Suntour that went with the Mighty Click GT rear derailleur and the Sugino Mighty Tour model number, available crankarm lengths, and available chainwheel sprockets Sugino offered for it and any cyclocross guards for it. Can somebody do the same thing with the SR Sakae Super Apex Touring Chainwheel, VLuxe, Perfect, Pro-Compe and New Winner freewheels, VLuxe-GT Rear Derailleurs, their adaptor claws and derailleur hangers, and Compe-V front derailleurs and all Suntour thumbshifter models from 1974-1984 and find out the model name and model number of some heavy-duty touring gear cables and housings from Suntour with a black housing and MTB lengths. Please help me. Thank you.

Press release: Pana (Illinois) Antique-Classic Bicycle Show and Swap Meet


This year Pana’s 5th Annual Antique-Classic Bicycle Show and Swap Meet is held in Kitchell Park in the very spacious Chautauqua Pavilion (over 11000-sq. ft.). When filled, space will be available for vendors outside. The date is Saturday June 25th, 2005, 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. There will be several classes for bicycles manufactured up to the 1980’s, Classic Scooters (through 1965) And Classic Motorized Bicycles. This event has grown in the last four years and Pana’s Chamber of Commerce is putting a large effort in making it even better. As in the past very generous Trophies will be given in each class. The Pana (Illinois) Antique-Classic Bicycle Show is the Home of "The Illinois Classic Bike of the Year" (2005) Award with $150.00 and nice plaque going to the Winner and $75.00 going to Runner Up. We also will enter the winner’s bike in the "2006 Classic of the Year" at the 2006 Ann Arbor Swap Meet. This event is an effort to bring forth some of the finest classic bicycles that few people ever get to see. Bring them out to Pana for all to see! Information at: www.geocities.com/bikes62557 then click on 2005. This great event is held at the same time and just across the park road from the Pana Mid-State Classic Car Show. Admission is free to the public for both events and large crowds are expected for this joint venture. Be sure to be there as it will be a great day for Bike and Car enthusiast alike.

CLUBS:   Fine a collector of vintage bicycle posted by: Manon on 2/7/2005 at 8:28:48 PM
Hello,



My name is Manon Paiement and I'm the researcher for a new tv series entitled "Bazart", for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

This 13 episodes series intends to portray how in our societies, art and culture can now be found in many different, divers and non-traditional forms.



Therefore, we would be very much interested in producing a 10 minutes coverage of collector vintage bicycle. If you are that person contact us.



At this point in our production, we're still in the research phase, for we're planning to shoot Bazart from Spring to Fall 2005 throughout the continent.



Meanwhile, I'm looking forward to hear from you, and to certainly learn much more about your amazing museum and the people running it.





Best Regards,



Manon Paiement

STUPID BIKE TRICKS:   of course we were bored- DUH!! posted by: rusty on 1/28/2005 at 9:13:04 PM
Budget chopper forks? I only had one set hammered onto my regular forks but those babys were CHROME! Dad couldn't afford the new Krate bikes so we had to be content with what me and my brother had which btw were pretty cool. I don't know what brand they were but one Christmas, older bro and I woke up to a pair of Stingray clones. Metalic green frames with white banana seat, I white 3 speed 'on the floor' shifter, white grips, and funky phat gangsta whitewall tires. (this was in the 60's) Anyhoo, most painful stupid bike trick that I never told anybody about was getting hit by a car in a store parking lot. This happened WAY beyond my parent-permitted riding boundarys so I never told them. Luckly the only damage to me was a monster bruise on my right thigh. (limped for days!) The woman driver was freaked but I insisted I was fine and rode/hobbled off. Most dorky stupid bike trick was a summer day while goofing around the neighborhood with some pals, one of us had thought it would be funny to ride around with our zippers open and our wangs hanging out. I don't remember if anyone saw us - lol. Most unexpected and painful stupid bike trick happened when a buddy and I were trashing a beater girls stingray I found at the city dump. We lived at the top of a steep hill so with one guy at the bottom intersection to watch for cars, the other guy would run and send the bike riderless down the hill and watch how hard and where it would crash. After hitting the curb a few dozen times the front rim was too taco'd to roll so the prolong the fun we'd pick the bike up and throw it onto a rock pile. No problems until I grabbed the bike by the bars, whipped the thing over my head, and got nailed square on the top of my noggin by the sissy bar top when the gooseneck bolt that held the handlebars tight slipped. DAMN that hurt- it felt like someone wacked me on the head with a freaking hammer! Looking back I think it was the bikes way of getting me back for all the abuse we gave it. ah...good times, good times....

What a stupid bike
throw it away

Ziggy,you can be quite the snob.There is no such thing as a "dumb bike".Just because it doesn't fetch the large $,doesn't make it junk.To tell him to throw it away proves what a narrow minded person you are.Stop being such an absolutist.Are you just in it for the money?

MISC:   Information on Lillian Russell's bicycle posted by: Ammon Shea on 12/29/2004 at 8:55:36 PM
Hello - I have an odd question and hope that someone here might have some information regarding it. At some point in the late 19th century (I think) the singer Lillian Russell was given a bicycle by an admirer, "Diamond" Jim Brady. He'd had it gold-plated and covered with diamonds, emeralds, etc. I think the handlebars were made of mother of pearl. Has anyone heard of this bike? And would you know if there are any pictures anywhere? If you haven't heard of this bike, would there be a specific model or type that a woman would certainly be riding at this time? ANy information would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Ammon Shea

A book titled America's Women, by Gail Collins, should be available at a local library. In this book, in a series of pictures, is a photo of Lillian Russell on a bike.
Hope this helps.
