BALLOON:   Shelby Sizes posted by: Glenn Brown on 6/12/2006 at 8:09:11 AM
Just wondering what the frame size is on the 49 Shelby Supreme and Shelby Flyer. Are they 26" or 24". Or do these deminsions refer to tire size and not frame size? Is the Supreme and flyer the same frame? The reason I ask is because I found a 49 Flyer cheap and will make a supreme out of it. Unless someone has a 49 Shelby Supreme cheap in restorable condition.

As far as I'm aware 24" - 26" is always a tyre size. Frames for individual tyre sizes may vary model to model, but each tyre size also denotes a specific frame size for the manufacturer. Only really have experience with Australian bikes but all our practices seem to match those in the US and UK

BALLOON:   Value of 20 inch 1950s boys bicycle posted by: Ed on 6/12/2006 at 2:32:02 AM
I found a boys 20 inch wheeled bicycle that has been painted over. This has inch pitch chain and a springer look fork. This has new Depature hub set. The serial number is D13860. The Schwinn serial number chart may suggest 1953. No Schwinn name on it. This has a double top tube frame no tank. Is this in the (worth my effort) catgory? Ed
