MISC:   Need derailleur diagram or directions posted by: Terry on 7/9/2004 at 5:16:59 PM
I am a rookie trying to assemble an old Raleigh derailleur. Bike is probably 30 years old. Serial number is HK4457063.
There are very few pieces to this derailleur:
--the metal outside/inside pieces, shaped kind of like a figure 8.
--The two wheels inside the metal pices;
--two flat, metal washers with holes in them; the holes somehow fit match a spring spring that provides tension.
CAN ANYONE SEND me a list that shows order of assembly; even an od catalogue diagram or a hand-drawn picture will do. Thank you. Terry McIver

How do I find the value of my old Murray 10speed Phoenix? I must have bought it in the early 70's, it is in good condition, just needs to be cleaned and tires replace.

Does anyone know what it is worth now?

SWAP MEETS:   British Bicycle Weekend and Swap meet in Philly posted by: ralph on 5/13/2004 at 8:13:22 PM
the British bicycle weekend is here again - May 14th, 15th, and 16th.
Trophy bikes is once again hosting it, but from a new location, they moved across town here in Philadelphia.
Michael Mget. - trophy bikes phone Number #215.222.2020(website-www.trophybikes.com)
from the organizer:
"Let's see:
Friday
meet at Trophy 4pm to 7pm...go for casual night ride.../registration and etc...
Sat am... Those intending to go on rides must register...
serious registration and ride across the Ben Franklin Bridge...OR into fairmount park...May send a group to Via early am... as not all are riding the the PM
Sat noon... go to Brians f/whshop on straightening Raleighs... Lunch and visit to Yard's Brewery...
4pm -- Pub Tour Begins...--we plan to stop by Via during the early part of Pub Tour (we'll drop a list of pubs off before, so you can intercept us later)

Sun-- Brit Swap Meet is ON... we can use the plaza right in front of the Class of 23 Ice Rink, across the street from Trophy... load in 7am to 8am... swap starts officially 9am, ends 1pm... this should be great for visibility so I hope you guys bring a lot....
another group may ride train to Chestnut Hill around noon, then return via Wissahickon and Kelly Drives.,...
any stragglers will go to Via or bar nearest Via for sun closing beers!"

Via Bicycle is not officially involved, as it is a Trophy bikes thing, but we do have cool eye candy and maybe even stuff to buy- Bluemels fenders, exotic British gear systems, etc....
so if you are in the area this weekend, stop by and pretend to be British.

MISC:   schwinn racer posted by: Della on 5/4/2004 at 6:06:11 PM
I have a 1960 something Schwinn Racer with serial number BG069854. I was wondering if anyone could give me any information on it and possibly what it may be worth?

          RE:MISC:   schwinn racer posted by Doug on 7/13/2004 at 6:48:56 PM
Hi Della,

I just bought a Schwinn Racer for 120.00 CDN. The seller told me it was worth more.... but don't they always? I don't know the specific date of my bike.

Where did you find the serial number? perhaps that coudl tell me the vintage.

best,
Doug.

          RE:MISC:   schwinn racer posted by Tim on 8/21/2005 at 9:15:00 PM
Try this link. It will tell you were to find the serial number( 3 different possible places) depending on the year it was made. Then it has all the serial numbers listed so you can figure the year it was made. Della's Racer was made in February of 1971. http://www.bunchobikes.com/serialnumber2.htm
