FOR SALE:   1972 Schwinn Twinn Tandem Deluxe - Excellent posted by: Steven Scott on 3/14/2001 at 5:27:01 PM
This is an all original tandem bike in excellent condition (most likely garaged and hardly ridden). The wheel odometer shows 267 miles! One owner. This bike is "baby blue" in color with the original Schwinn Twinn Deluxe decals still showing including the original dealer sticker from Irving TX. Original pedals, reflectors, handle bar grips, seats, wheels, and yes, even the original tires! Bike is 5 spd. with a rear hub brake and a front caliper brake. Bike rides and works perfect. Will have digital pictures by the weekend. Please email me if you are interested. Open on offers. Thanks.

Once again I am looking for the curved chain guard for the Dayton/Huffman bicycle with straight down tube. The bike in particular that is being restored is a rare bike with the tank built in(mens,'37-'39). I also need the guts for the battery can in the rear carrier, an the nearly impossibe to find "Firestone Flying Ace" badge or very nice "Fleetwood" badge. I will email pictures. I have some limited b-6 parts for trade or will pay cash/money order.
Thank you ,

MISC:   information on a Wichita Bike Tag posted by: Aggie on 3/12/2001 at 3:39:44 AM
my husband and i have restore one bike that is a boys bike. Now we have a females bike but we aren't sure of the date on the bike. For as we were retoreing the bike we found that the rims are filled with a substance like pulp wood that is very hard. As well as the city tag that is on the bike is 1948. We are wondering if the bike is older than the tag states.
If you have any info please let me know. Thank you
