Does anyone know of any midwest area swap meets coming up this year? I'm in northeast Indiana, but will travel to surrounding states for a good swap meet.

I am trying to pin down an age on my turquiose/white Saturn-it has stars cut in the chain gear thingy. I bought it about 15 years ago at a church tag sale for $10.00. Hope someone can help and thanks.

MISC:   What is this bike worth? posted by: Mary Robinson on 6/30/2003 at 1:37:49 AM
My son bought a bike at a flea-market for one dollar last summer. He has been riding it all year (snow and all), He was offered $50.00 for it today, I am just wondering why!
The bike says that it was made in 1978, it also says "Kia Hi-Riser".
Any information on this bike would be very much appreciated.
Thanks,
Mary

How about putting on a bike show or a swap meet. Go on weekend rides in different locations with club members. Get a booth at a local fair or something to get your club seen.
It all depends on what you want to do with your club. I know of clubs where its just a bunch of friends that hang out and bullshit all day.
How about a club project bike. Each member build a different piece.
Anyway, good luck with your club!

with emery paper will that restore the shoe? Also, How tight do I reassemble the brake against the bearings? Is ther some spcific
instruction that I should know about.
Thanks

This is what it is/ 60'S 70'S SKY WAGON TANDEM BIKE. This bike has marking (Nissan Cycle Co LTD) # EY83876N. This Tandem is in very good condition and is all original with a small ding on wheel fender. I have never heard on a Nissan bike company. Is there any place to buy parts for this bike? What is it worth? Or any other info would be very helpful . Thank you Michele

I have a Sky Wagon 10 speed touring bike and I have not found any reference to the Nissan Cycle co. anywhere on the net except here. Parts seem to be standard (Shimano), but I am having problems figuring out how to restore the control cables for the derailers. Lots of luck and drop me a line when you find some info on this company
