WANTED:   13 Tooth Sprocket for Coaster Brake Hub posted by: Bruce on 10/6/2001 at 3:44:24 AM
I am looking to buy a 13 tooth sprocket for a coaster brake hub. I believe that sprockets for most coaster brake hubs such as SRAM/Sachs, Shimano and Sturmey-Archer are all interchangable. These sprockets have 3 splines. It seems that the smallest size is 13 teeth and that is the one I am looking for. 14 tooth sprockets are available from modern parts sources but I have never seen a 13 tooth one in a catalog. If you have, please tell me. But some bikes came originally with 13 tooth sprockets. Perhaps someone has swapped one out for a larger sprocket and that elusive 13 tooth is sitting in a parts bin. If you know of any available, please let me know.

Thank you!

I just changed out my Swing Bike rear wheel with a new 20" wheel bought from a local dealer, and I was comparing the sprockets as well as the spoke configuration: the old one had 13 teeth and the new one has 14. Can anyone explain why the change in number of teeth over the last two decades? (btw, I don't want to sell the old hub...)

   RE:RE:WANTED:   13 Tooth Sprocket for Coaster Brake Hub posted by Cal on 10/10/2001 at 12:47:19 PM
It all depends on the number of teeth on the front sprocket and the type or riding to be done on the bike. A smaller number of teeth on the back scprocket means the bike is in a 'higher' gear.

I had received this bike in a batch I bought. I only restore balloon tire bikes. This is a real odd looking bike. The wheels are hollow aluminum. I was told that it is from the 50-60's era. I am interested in selling it, but do not know it's value. E-mail me if you are interested. Thanks.

WANTED:   shallow drop handlebar posted by: chris andrews on 10/5/2001 at 1:18:52 AM
Ever since the 70's all? the handlebars have been a fairly deep drop (even on juvenile girls' models). I'm looking for a shallow drop that resembles a "north road" bar turned over -- the north road with parallel hand grips (not what Nito calls north road.) I seem to recall that one such bar was called "Lauterwasser". The straight part near the stem was not very long, and then the bars dropped at an angle (15 degrees?) before bending forward and then dropping, and then back to the handgrips. This style was common on prewar English "sports" and "club" bikes. Width should not exceed 16 inches, and alloy would be preferred, but decent steel acceptable.

WANTED:   Swing Bike to trade for Dyno Roadster posted by: Gary on 10/4/2001 at 1:54:28 PM
I have a blue Swing Bike in unrestored condition that I would like to trade for a Dyno Roadster stretch beach cruiser (preferably in black but I'll consider any). I am the original owner of the Swing Bike, had it since I was a kid. It's got rusty chrome and flat tires, but everything on it is original. The hand lever and brake line for the front brake is missing, as well as the hand grips. Everything else is these. I think the tires are even the originals, though they could probably stand to be replaced. Paint is decent with normal wear and tear, I did put a lot of miles on this bike. With new tubes and tires, this bike is ready to ride. You can email me at heavyg@warpnet.net Thanks.

WANTED:   AMF Junior trike posted by: Lynne on 10/3/2001 at 12:46:03 AM
Looking to buy a (replacement) front tire for an AMF Junior tricycle which is 25-30 years old. The front tire and pedals seem to be all one piece. The tire is also has spokes and is of solid material and not air filled. The wheel itself is 12" in diameter and about 1 1/2" thick. (This tricycle is perfect for a 3 year old...just to give an idea as to its size).

   Took your invitation, had a good ride. posted by Tom Findley on 10/2/2001 at 6:16:59 PM
I drove from Stone Mtn. to Rockmart starting at 7 am. After stopping for breakfast, I found I forgot the map of Rockmart, and that it took linger to get there than I expected. I found the trail at about (;45 am, and rode the Phantom I took to Holland. The 2% grades felt really good, and I ended up going a total of 32 miles.

Thanks for posting the info. It got me there. I can only go about 14 MPH on the REAL BIKE, and have learned I can't keep up with a peloton. I am ready to ride another segment of the Silver Comet Trail.

If the tires are 26" X 1 3/4", it is a Mark II Jaguar. If the tires are 26" X 2.125", it is the original model Jaguar, which was not designated Mark I. Page showing Mark II Jaguar:
