Posted on: 1-13-2005 by Tim Horner
I am looking for an original crank for my bike but I am not entirely sure what my bike is.  If you can help with either of these that would be great.  I think it is WWI BSA (maybe Rudge) but look here for pics.

FOR SALE Chicago Bicycle Supply tank
« Reply #20 on: November 09, 2011, 09:09:59 am »
Posted on: 1-15-2005 by Ed
Hi would anyone have a tank for an old mens Chicago Bicycle supply Cadillac. I~m not sure what year it is but I~m pretty sure pre-war. Its black with red trim oulined with white pinstripping on the frame and fenders with a chrome or nickel plated front headlight (cone shaped) also has "sweetheart" skip tooth sprocket and handlebars have a "cross bar". Its very old and looks to be 95+% original condition. Its says "Cadillac" on the lower bar on the frame and on the brass headbadge. I~m not sure if it came with a tank but it has a single bar under the top frame bar unlike a Phantom which has the thinner double bars under the top bar. If anyone has any info or a tank for this bike please let me know.

ThanksEd

FOR SALE Help with Valuation Please

Posted on: 1-21-2005 by Bob Fugel
I have a 1977 Raleigh Tourist bike that has unique front and rear brakes. The pads on the brakes meet the inside of the rims with a pulling motion from the brake levers that involve only steel rods ( no cables of any kind). The bike is in what appears to be original condition with all of the original parts but suffers from rust on many of the surfaces. Can anyone tell me if this bike is worth restoring and if possible what the current value may be?
Thanks in advance for your help.

The brakes you refer to are called rod brakes - featured on all the Ralegh Tourist models.

Unfortunately while the DL-1 Tourist model style are generally desirable the late ~70s variants are very unpopular as their lesser workmanship and quality can~t match their 50~s counterparts.

A mint fully equipped ~70s DL-1 usually will hit max at $250 usually Anywhere from $150-200 for one lacking the preferred options (saddle-mount bag braze-on pump pegs etc).

Anything in lesser condition usually can~t max $50. Most late DL-1 models in less-then-perfect shape usually end up getting their rod brake parts parted out so if the chrome is rusted as well you might have a tough time trying to unload it (if your final intent is to sell it of course).

Unless you would like to restore it for your own enjoyment there~s no chance that you could restore it and hope to sell it for a profit. Mint ~70s DL-1s are still kicking around and collectors usually aim for these. They use the 70~s models as daily drivers while their prize ~50s Raleigh Rudge or Humber DL-1 Tourist model sits in their shed all polished up.

Of interesting note about 25 miles from me is this particular 1979 Rudge Tourist DL-1 on eBay

http--cgi.ebay.com-ws-eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=7129045777

A 1979 Rudge is a particularly odd model (the Rudge line supposedly shut down in ~72) and to see any Tourist with a full chaincase in the States is harder still. This auction had been incorrectly listed once before as a pre 1950~s Rudge (there~s still evedence of that text in his description - I assume he forgot to proofread it) and had been bid to $315.00 or so reserve not met.

I had the chance to see the bike in person and sure enough I discovered it to be a ~79 from the hub date and various other details on it.

As you can see he revised his auction to show that it is in fact a 1979 model and has only recieved a bid of $10.49 for the last 4 days - keep in mind that this is a rather unique edition. But as you can see the collectors want a pre-60~s model - they don~t care what it is if it was built prior to the early ~70s. I expect it not to exceed $60. The seller obviously has high expectations though (although he lowered those expectations from his prevous wild reserve).

Hope this info helps.

Take care

Kurt

My father-in-law has a 1962 girl~s Columbia Thunderbolt 26 inches (I think) that is in pretty good overall shape.  The tires need replacing but the original paint seat handlebars etc. are all there.  What is this worth if anything?  He~s wondering if he should trash it restore it or just sell it.  Any info anyone can give would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!!

Hello

    I am looking for a Sachs 2-speed Torpedo automatic hub like this.  A ~Duomatic~ is the kickback version that I don~t want.  I think these were mostly used on 20" folding bikes.  Here is on on eBay with a kinda high pricetag...

http--cgi.ebay.com-ws-eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7129254588&ssPageName=STRKMEWAIT

Thank you for any help!
