MISC:   Lost: My Victoria step through posted by: Liz on 11/12/2003 at 5:56:10 AM
Hello, I moved from Massachusetts and left my Victoria (minus wheels) in the care of a friend. It was boxed up and his landlord put it out with the trash! Arg!

It's been a while, but I'm wondering if anyone saved it?
It has a non-Victoria leaping greyhound "hood ornament" and a leather saddle. As mentioned, no wheels.

Please e-mail me if by some miracle you know where it is.
Thanks.

MISC:   sears 3 speed hub posted by: thom on 11/4/2003 at 3:58:00 PM
I found a 1965 sears 3 speed hub model #503.21 and would like any info on it. I'm not sure if its worth saving or junk. Please e-mail any info to nkdboy609@aol.com

These hubs were pretty common, they were made in Austria under license by Sturmey Archer. They use Sturmey Archer internals with the exception of the left bearing race, (different threading). Value would depend on someone needing that year hub and it's condition. I use most of these for parts since I have never had the need for a Sears branded hub. The left bearing race is the same as a Schwinn Approved model as well. Some models were also stamped "J.C. Higgins". These use a standard Sturmey Archer shifter.

MISC:   Information on AMF Roadmaster - Female posted by: Dale McInturff on 11/3/2003 at 12:37:15 AM
I bought a girls 26" AMF Roadmaster, Jet Pilot, recently at a yard sale. The bike is in pretty good shape. It's blue with a fender light, horn tank, and luggage rack. Serial number B43901 G. I would be interested to learn the age of the bike. I've searched to website and have found a bike (1952) with similar characteristics, but I can't view a picture and I haven't been able to verify the serial number. Thanks for any info.

MISC:   23" tires/rims anyone? posted by: Glenn on 10/27/2003 at 1:16:29 AM
Hi folks, I found a super old 50's motorized bike by Motobecane, that has 23 inch tires and rims! I am not experienced with vintage bikes at all, does anybody know of a source for these? I'm thinking I will have to convert over to 24", it appears the bike can handle the extra inch diameter. I got to do something, the rims are so rusty, and the tires shot! Anybody have 24" by at least 2" chrome rims available in case I can't find 23"? Thanks to all replies, I appreciate the help! Take care, Glenn (Detroit)

I have acquired a vintage Phillips(Nottingham)women's one speed bicycle. It is a beautiful blue with a tire pump attached. The serial # is 3356690, and there is a sticker on it that says 'Oxford House Sales and Service, Brighouse and Richmond'. Can anyone help me to further identify this bike, it's age and approximate value?. Thanks, Pam

Pam, try asking under the English Cycle section. There are a lot of English bike experts there.
