MISC:   1977 Columbia boys bike posted by: Andrew Matthews on 12/1/2000 at 8:12:08 AM
I found a 1977 columbia boys bike that was in its original carton that has been sitting there 16 years. I bought it and assemble it. It has a sticker on it saying 100th Centennial year for Columbia. Its a 20in with a bannana seat. It,s orange and black. This bike is now 23 years old and never riden. With this sticker on it what do you believe this bike is worth? Thank You.

If you put this message in the Musclebike discussion area you might find some information on it. I think I have heard of that bike before. Look on EBAY for one and if you do not find it under current auctions check completed items.

The serial number on your Pixie is most probably located at the left rear dropout; i.e., the dropout is where the rear wheel's axel slides in.
By the way, we have a couple of Pixies, and, we cannot, for the life of us, get a rough idea of how much a Pixie is worth.
The reason we can tell you with a reasonalble assurance where your serial is is that yours may be covered over with paint.
Can you give us a ball park idea of the value of a Pixie ?

I am also researching vigorously for information pertaining to Schwinn Pixies. Could you tell me if this is possibly the serial number- Dr550870; as well as what that tells you? More specifically, the year of the bicycle and possibly a ball park estimate of it's value. I would appreciate it very much; Thank you.

I just came across what I believe to be an old pixie. I was able to find the numbers just below the seat (415294), and I also took the crank out and found these (sa 473) on it. Any idea on the year? Thanks.

The hard-tired Schwinn Pixie serial numbers seem to follow a sequence which is different from other Schwinn bicycles.

MISC:   Firenze Mountain Bike posted by: Michael Bloom on 10/6/2000 at 4:12:41 PM
I just received a mountain bike from my father-in-law and I am trying to find information surrounding the history of this bike. The bike is a Firenze 15-Speed Mountain Bike. I have been told that it was a give away/promotion bike when people purchased a television. I also noticed that it was built in Taiwan for a Diversified Investment Company or something like that. Any information would be helpful.

          RE:MISC:   Firenze Mountain Bike posted by Patrick Pecher on 1/22/2001 at 7:43:15 PM
You were told correctly. The trade name Firenze was used by American TV and Appliance headquartered at one time in Madison, WI. The name is no longer used, but the person who thought up the promotion realized what great potential there was in importing spec bicycles that he started his own company which is now one of the largest ( if not the largest) importers in the nation - Pacific Cycle, Headquartered in McFarland, WI. See their web page for the complete story. Very interesting. The bikes really have no collectible value and some of the first few years were of very low quality. Pacific Cycle bicycles are much better than those were and are a great value today with good quality components.
