SWAP MEETS:   Antique Bicycle Shows, Swap Meets, etc posted by: Stu on 6/28/2001 at 4:35:43 PM
Can anyone point me to a good site or newsletter/magazine with a complete listing of antique bicycle shows in the United States? I live in Southern California and any show information for that area would be of special interest.
Thanks - Stu

Hi, I work for a parks and rec dept in so. california. i am trying to find an individual or organization who could speak to our camp kids this summer about vintage bikes, bicycle history, and possibly bring some bikes for the kids to see and maybe ride. Would anyone be able to provide me with the names and contact information.

It would really add a nice touch to our program.

Thanks for your help.

Stephanie

You might also find some help from Mike. He can be contacted at Covina Valley Schwinn, 325 North Citrus Avenue, Covina, CA 91723. Phone: (626) 332-5200

MISC:   Help posted by: sam on 6/11/2001 at 2:58:53 PM
I've just found and old raleigh tricycle in a bush! It's for a 3-5yr old child. It has solid wheels with hard rubber edges.. red and yellow paint work. The handlebars swoop backwards and down towards the back wheel and has a white seat. It's fixed wheeled, no brakes and what looks like a little running board as part of the back wheel axle assembly.

My little 3 yr old boy took to it instantly and now he loves it more than all his other bikes (and this is only the first evening he's had it!) I would like to know:

1) what model is it and where can i find it on the web
2) how can I get spare parts (!!!) to restore it

pleeeees help, I want to recondition it so it will last forever - its a beautiful design

thanks

Probably a Raleigh Winkie.
There are chaincase parts for sale for those on this site.

          RE:MISC:   Help posted by sam on 6/12/2001 at 3:19:02 PM
cal, thanks for the reply - the pedals on this little trike go direct to the front wheel - I should have said - and it has black 'spokes' painted on the solid wheels. Any advice on where else I can seek info on this great old design?
thx again
sam

Keep an eye on e- bay. This stuff is showing up there at the very least it is good for refrence.
Raleigh had a whole line of childrens bicycles/ trundle toys/tricycles more than just the Winkie too.
I would need a picture of the tricycle to help you. I do have some later day catalogs that show the childrens stuff.
E -mail me off list and I can help possibly.

          RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Help posted by ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 7/8/2001 at 11:32:24 AM
I'm delighted to hear that he loves it.

MISC:   Rollfast posted by: Joann Wallraven on 6/10/2001 at 2:32:59 PM
I have a 1950's Rollfast girl's bike. I am trying to find out the exact year it was made. I have the serial no. on the rearend, but was wondering if it is the correct one. It reads as follows: 28 F&S 57 M Kome1 Super D.R.P-D.B.P. MADE IN GERMANY. Can you please tell me a little more info on this? Thanks. Hope to hear from someone soon.

          RE:MISC:   Rollfast posted by Joann on 6/10/2001 at 2:52:11 PM
Correction on the serial no., instead of 28, it's 2.8!

          RE:RE:MISC:   Rollfast posted by JOEL on 6/13/2001 at 1:50:17 PM
Komet Super is a coaster brake found on late 50s-60s bikes. There are no Rolfast serial #'s avalable. A more complete discription or picture might help narrow it down.

Try the balloon/midweight forum.

I am new to this too, but have been searching for an dutch bike since. I came across to Dutch companies Batavus and Gazelle. They both have websites.
www.batavus.nl
www.gazelle.nl
I have been toying with the idea of ordering one from Gazelle. They make the classic look and ride.
Any pictures of yours? any interest is selling?
chris

          RE:RE:MISC:   Flying Dutchman posted by Monique on 5/16/2001 at 7:58:33 PM
Chris
I also found the Batavus site and the other. But I can't read Dutch. I am also working on getting some pictures of it. Do you have any clue as to where the serial numbers might be located? And as far as selling it, there is always a chance.
Monique

I just bought two Schwin Town & Country tricycles and I was wondering how much they would be worth, give or take a little.
They do have some rust and a gie sprayed one to try and chrome out the wheels.

          RE:MISC:   price posted by Trance on 5/8/2001 at 5:37:25 AM
Are they 1 or 3 speeds? 26" wheels or 24"?
At any rate, they are great collectible items. I find 3-wheelers hard to ride. Too flat around corners!

          RE:MISC:   price posted by tony on 5/8/2001 at 6:56:00 AM
Their 3 speeds.
