MISC:   information needed posted by: Daniel Collins on 1/9/2001 at 2:31:26 AM
I have a most unusual bike, and I'd like some info if anybody has any. OK it's called a Green Spider and is made by a company called Unicorn. It was made some time in the 60's or 70's and I've been lead to believe that only 100 or so where made. It has 3 wheels which are all indepent of each other. Basically it is two scooters mounted, one scooter on to each side of the front forks, and is propelled by pushing your legs apart and then pulling them together again. It is a great ride downhill, allowing you to weave among cars etc with great mobility and speed. Thanks if you can help.

WANTED:   These parts from French Peugeot Bicycle posted by: Ray on 1/8/2001 at 7:47:35 AM
I am in the process of restoring a nice French Peugeot touring bike from the 50s. It is very unusual and has an old unique three speed Simplex derailluer system. I need the following parts to complete my work. Any suggestions will be helpful.

Rear Reflector, this unit lights up from a generator. What I need is the lens at the top of this assembly or I will buy the whole assembly if necessary. Look at these URLs to see what I need.
Rear Reflector

Wing Nut, I need two of these, they are alloy.

Pedals, unusual shape with ring in center, could use a pair or just a left if you have only one.

Hand Grip, need one of these but will buy pair if necessary.
Thanks for your help and or suggestions.

What would the nuts you need be? What would they say? Huret maybe? The server can't show me your pages.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   These parts from French Peugeot Bicycle posted by Art on 1/9/2001 at 10:49:52 AM
Christopher, I checked the nuts also, thinking they might be Huret or vita but they appear older than that. I've never seen these wingnuts before. Art

   RE:WANTED:   These parts from French Peugeot Bicycle posted by Ray on 1/9/2001 at 1:54:39 PM
Try again on that server, it is Photo Point so it should work. As for the wing nuts, they do not have any name on them. They are alloy and the rears are shaped different then the fronts. The rears are sort of a W shape or like a seagull and are specifically designed to clear a little acorn nut that holds the rear rack in place. I tried a Huret and the wing nut hit the acorn nut so it was a no go. If you need a clearer photo I will remove the nut and snap a close up.

   By special request, here is the whole bike posted by Ray on 1/9/2001 at 7:47:36 PM
This is my latest love. It is a mixte frame with a lot of unusual stuff.
First the coil spring loaded Simplex 3 speed derailluer is fully intact and a real retro blast. Note the spring from the derailluere cage to a braze on just behind the BB and under the chain guard.
It has unique brakes that are like Bulldog BMX type where a wedge drives up between the brake arms to spread them and put pressure on the rim.
It has a capped oil hole between the top and down tubes almost big enough to put a bottle of 10W30 into. The cable clamps are just braze ons that fold over the cable.
Stainless steel fenders with a painted stripe. Braze on generator mount. Fantastic aluminum chain guard and get a load of the two aluminum panniers. Really a retro
dream bike. Can't wait to finish it off and display it. Here is the URL for your reference.

WANTED:   Sears "RAIL" circa 1965-66 posted by: Randy on 1/7/2001 at 9:57:38 AM
I Hope someone remembers these! It was a 20",5 speed derailer, with a "T" style shift lever . The frame was painted a "magenta" color (purple-ish) with chrome scoop fenders. The frame was slightly longer than a normal 20". Rear slick balloon tire, front middle weight. I had one then, I want one now, you know the story!

   RE:WANTED:   Sears posted by Jeff on 1/8/2001 at 6:25:14 AM
I remember them but I thought it was a Huffy Rail, not Sears. There's probably a picture of one in the Picture Database. Do a query by model.

   RE:WANTED:   Sears posted by Conrad on 1/10/2001 at 6:44:29 PM
Huffy made them for Sears.
