Memory Lane might have just what your looking for! Call 'em (419-832-3040), you won't regret it.

You will if you get the rude guy I talked to last time.

   RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   Shelby head badge posted by Gordon on 4/16/2000 at 10:29:30 AM
They weren't exactly rude to me, but they took me for a about $15.

   RE:RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   Shelby head badge posted by Mike Q. on 4/17/2000 at 6:13:41 AM
Yeah. Watch out for Memory Lane. I ordered a supposedly NOS Silver King sprocket and got a cheap, Asian knockoff. At least they took it back! They also sent a pair of adjusting screws that weren't as advertised. Buyer beware.

This is the first time I have heard anything halfway negative about Memory Lane! Everyone has a bad day and gets a bit snoty or snooty sometimes.

   THE RUDE GUY posted by Ralphbob on 4/17/2000 at 12:40:13 PM
The rude guy is Harv. He can be a bit of an azz sometimes but he's a good guy if you get to know him.

   RE:THE RUDE GUY posted by Pee-Wee on 4/17/2000 at 8:42:06 PM
I'm sorry if I may have said something that others found a bit false, or had a different opinion. You see, I have done a little bit of business with Memory Lane, and I never found them to be anything like that, possibly because I always talk to Larry, who is a pretty good guy. Although, there is one person who, if you get a hold of her, tends to be a bit rude, and her name is Sandra. Next time, try to talk to Larry.

FOR SALE:   Schwinn ballooner posted by: George on 4/12/2000 at 5:35:54 PM
Just curious how much my bike might be worth. It's a red & white 1950 Schwinn DX with a tank, rack, Rocket Ray, and spring fork. On the back above the rack are a set of large leather saddlebags. On the handlebars are two "Safety Mirrors", a Cadet Speedometer, red & white streamers, and an American Flag bell. On the bottom of both fenders are a set of "Tingley Mud Flaps" and fenders are pinstriped. There are four red-jeweled hub caps by Schwinn. Feather chainguard. And on the front wheel reside a pair of red & white "Wacky Wheels". Whitewall Lightning Darts. Rear taillight with "Make-a-Lite" generator. And on the back wheel are a set of ELGIN skirt guards I had custom painted and fit to match the Schwinn perfectly. The whole entire bike is mint as well as the accessories. How much do you think it's worth, stuff and all?
