FOR SALE:   Wanted: Parts for 64' Sears Spaceliner posted by: Adam on 2/19/2001 at 9:42:47 PM
I am restoring my uncles Spaceliner from his childhood and I need some parts. A rear fender brace, or a whole fender if is is in better shape than the current one. The one I have is in pretty good shape except for the brace and the reflector. I also could use a tail light. And what is the chain guard suppose to say, most of the letters are rubbed off and I want to re-stencil it. I also would like a saddle that is O.E. in black.

I've seen repop plastic taillight housings that look like the Spaceliner housing. They may be for Schwinns but they look right to me. Somebody here must have some.

The chainguard has "S P A C E L I N E R" written in block letters.

MISC:   Some general notes... posted by: VVVintage Vintage Bicycles at OldRoads.com on 2/19/2001 at 10:30:10 AM
1) We're working on a new section of our web site which will show step-by-step restorations and refurbs of various old bicycles. The first bicycle we're taking the time to document is the refurb of a 1930s Columbia-built Sterling. It's a sweet old ballooner and it needs help, but does not require a full restoration. We will keep all documented restoration and refurb projects on our site and plan to build up a good base of restoration photos, procedures and information as time goes on.

2) We've got a big update to our 'Bicycles and Parts For Sale' page coming soon. We've bought more Brit and American Musclebike, Ballooner and Roadster parts and are in the process of taking pictures and writing descriptions.

3) We've had a number of complaints about the inappropriate banter and anonymous backbiting that seems to be seeping into our site's Discussion Areas. Some people feel it is the result of the closing of the Schwinn.com forums. We will remove those postings as we find them and will record the IP information associated with each message. We've had several offers from internet security geeks who would love to "triangulate" the IP information, identify the posters, and submit them for prosecution under the new "DOS" (Denial Of Service) laws. I personal believe you all can police yourselves and those measures are not necessary. We will never implement any type of password/login system, and we will always allow people to post messages and questions without requiring a valid email address or anything else. I strongly believe 99 percent of the readers and writers here enjoy the free flowing exchange of information and are not too concerned when a discussion goes slightly off topic. In the end, we're all 2-wheeled enthusiasts with a broad range of other interests, too. Just try to keep the language at a 'PG-rated' level, keep it vintage bicycle related, and don't cowardly bash someone without using your true email address.

And in the meantime, please let us know when you see those inappropriate postings, and please bear with us while those people find somewhere else to get their kicks.
