MISC:   Austro Diamler posted by: Kris on 6/26/2000 at 10:10:20 AM
Would anyone happen to know where I can get a value on a mid-70's Autro
Diamler bike? It is in MINT condition (was used only for road racing)
and has all the original Campy gear on it.

Please let me know if anyone has any information...or a lead on a good
place to start?

Thanks much!

   RE:MISC:   Austro Diamler posted by Morgan on 7/1/2000 at 8:27:42 PM
The value of your Austro-Daimler depends on several factors: its model, its components (just Campagnolos isn't enough, because there are several levels of Campagnolo quality), its frame size all enter into determining what it's worth.

I would NEVER call a bike used for racing "mint," because racing is about the hardest use a bike can get.

While I like A-D bikes, they aren't really collectible, and the likelihood of your finding a buyer depends on whether there's someone out there who WANTS a nice A-D when you're trying to sell it.

wheels, weighs 26 lbs, Reynolds 531 double-butted main frame,
quick-release wheels. Currently on eBay (item # 358583827)
for $75 with photo. No bids and expires today. Bid now or
email me post auction if interested. Could be picked up in
Virginia, either Shenandoah Valley or inside the DC beltway
in Fairfax County.

WANTED:   European pedals, Presta valve parts needed posted by: Jerry Cleveland on 6/23/2000 at 6:03:39 AM
I am looking for a few items for my old (1941?) European OLTENIA Swiss Army bicycle:

I need two pairs of new (or VG to EXC used) reflectorless rubber pedal blocks, square profile, 4 5/16 inches (11cm) long; I’ll buy complete pedals to get the pedal blocks if necessary.

I also need two complete older Presta valve stems including the knurled nuts and metal caps. Condition of tubes, if any, does not matter: I just need the metal hardware.

Also seeking general information about OLTENIA bicycles.

Any help, or suggestions of other possible suppliers, would be most appreciated.

MISC:   Raleigh "Reg Harris" racer posted by: Dan Yasenko on 6/22/2000 at 9:49:04 AM
I have recently acquired a Raleigh racer. Based on the decals, it seems to be a Reg Harris model. Does anyone know the approximate age of this bicycle and its approximate value? Any input would be appreciated.

   RE:MISC:   Raleigh posted by http://www.ChristopherRobin@starmail.com on 6/23/2000 at 7:52:10 AM
Please e- mai me at http://www.ChristopherRobin@starmail.com I have 2 of these bikes. Please describe this for us. What size wheels, color, Is this a four or a three speed? What does it say on the rims? These are nice, sought after club machines.

   RE:MISC:   Raleigh posted by Dan Yasenko on 6/28/2000 at 8:24:13 AM
Thanks for your prompt reply. I took another look at the bike last night and have a few more details for you to go on.
The frame is silver gray, possibly a medium green at one time, with white trim. It has the following decals: Lenton Grand Prix, Reg Harris Model, Reynolds 531 tubing. The front emblem specifies Nottingham.
I don't believe that the wheels are original. They are 27 x 1 1/4 and have a sticker which says Wobler, Model 58 S. They both have quick release hubs.
The front deraileur is not activated by cable; instead, a lever extends up and out for the rider to use for shifting. The name Benelux is on the unit.
The rear deraileur is cable activated and uses s small chain to activate shifts, much like the old three speed hubs used. The name CYCLO is stamped on the unit.
The front sprocket has some neat, ornamental storks ecthed on its face. The bike has two front sprockets and four rear sprockets.
The bike also has an old water bottle holder on the front handle bars with a sticker attached, "Made in France." The saddle is a Brooks leather unit, the handle bars are Maes Bend (sp) and the brake handles (Probably not original) have two levers for braking from the front and from above.

The brakes are side pull Weinman, type 730. The front stem, forks, seat post all appear original. The overall condition of the bike, in my opinion, is very nice. Please contact me with any information on the bike and also let me know if you might be interested in purchasing the bike. I will be unavailable from 6/30 through 7/8. Thank you for you time and expertise.
Dan Yasenko

Please e-mail me as I am interested in seeing a photo or two of this machine and yes I am interested.
Wolber rims are not origonal, neither are the quick release, paint sounds origonal Benelux "suicide" lever shifter is origonal Cyclo shifter is origonal The Raleigh Heron front sprocket is origonal and very cool French water bottle is appropriate and correct Brakes are not right they should be G.B. alloy "Hidiumium" The Brooks leather saddle is origonal. These were very nice bikes. e-mail me http://www.ChristopherRobin@starmail.com
