WANTED:   Want Flip down kick stand for Silver King, 24" posted by: Darrell on 6/7/2005 at 3:12:06 PM
Wanted: Flip Down Kick Stand for a 1936 Silver King, 24", girls bike. I could also use an excellent set of wheel rims for the same (mine were bad so I blasted and painted them). I'm also in need of the rear reflector. I have never seen a luggage rack for the girls bike, if you have one please contact me. Thanks, please e-mail me directly as I don't check the forum every day. Thanks!!!

last 1936 monark silver king rack sold for 350$ on ebay and the rack was broken, and last kickstand sold for 150$
so you might find some more on ebay if you are willing to pay

Press release: Pana (Illinois) Antique-Classic Bicycle Show and Swap Meet

This year Pana’s 5th Annual Antique-Classic Bicycle Show and Swap Meet is held in Kitchell Park in the very spacious Chautauqua Pavilion (over 11000-sq. ft.). When filled, space will be available for vendors outside. The date is Saturday June 25th, 2005, 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM. There will be several classes for bicycles manufactured up to the 1980’s, Classic Scooters (through 1965) And Classic Motorized Bicycles. This event has grown in the last four years and Pana’s Chamber of Commerce is putting a large effort in making it even better. As in the past very generous Trophies will be given in each class. The Pana (Illinois) Antique-Classic Bicycle Show is the Home of "The Illinois Classic Bike of the Year" (2005) Award with $150.00 and nice plaque going to the Winner and $75.00 going to Runner Up. We also will enter the winner’s bike in the "2006 Classic of the Year" at the 2006 Ann Arbor Swap Meet. This event is an effort to bring forth some of the finest classic bicycles that few people ever get to see. Bring them out to Pana for all to see!

Was there ever a middle weight Hornet?

Definately available as a middleweight. I believe the last year it was offered was 1964.

Thanks Gordon,all the hornets I`ve ever saw were balloners
Should it have a horn case (tank)?

   RE:AGE / VALUE:   M/W Hornet posted by Gordon on 6/7/2005 at 10:50:56 AM
The only pictures I have show the 1955 Hornet with a tank, and a 1956 Deluxe Hornet with a tank and springer.

Thank's for any help.

Raleigh Superbe - English Roadsters Forum. If it has a Brooks leather saddle on it, and if you don't mind selling the saddle, I'm interested - cudak888@aol.com

Serial number for the Schwinn - try looking it up:

I'm not much on Raleigh, but the serial # dates your Schwinn to January 1960.

MIDDLEWEIGHT:   Schwinn 24in. 1956-7 Corvette posted by: Dan on 6/4/2005 at 5:19:17 AM
I just picked up a 1956-7(s/n S3XXXX) 24in. Corvette and was wondering if this model/year had an aluminum book rack on the front or truss rods? I have the neck attachment only.

According to various 'Vettes I've seen on various websites and the stem bracket on my '63, they came with front carrier racks, but whether they were aluminum or steel is beyond me because Schwinn may have used both; I've got a steel one on my '64 Starlet III.
