FOR SALE:   Wasp, Hollywood, Ward, SuperSport, Sears Folder posted by: Jeff Potter on 6/12/2001 at 12:35:49 PM
I used to read the "Classic Bike" newsletter and now have too many bikes. (I like roadbikes and recumbents more now.)

Here's some info on some *one owner* bikes (mostly) I have for sale:

*WARD CRUISER: I have a neat old MW 50's cruiser that was the top of the line model.
Paint chipping, fading, very little rust. 90% of add-on parts still there. Kickstand gone, but could be located. Maybe a light is missing---possibly a couple small items missing.

*SCHWINN WASP: Black, in pretty good shape. All parts there.

*SCHWINN HOLLYWOOD: Purple, in very good shape. All parts.

*70's SCHWINN SUPERSPORT: I have a nice condition SS from the early 70's, lime green, with
kickstand, generator lights and leather saddle. Non-lugged frame. A bit of paint fade and chip and part-finish corrosion, but the bike works great. I rode it on a long club training race ride a couple years ago. We pasted about a dozen team riders.

*SEARS FOLDER: Very good condition. It has two cargo racks which are very elegantly integrated into the frame design. 20" wheels. From the 60's probably. Brown.

*I'm located near Lansing, Mich. I'll ship, but pick up is best.

*I've taken photos of most of these now and can provide them soon. I could get SS#'s too.

   RE:MISC:   Robin Hood posted by Foster on 6/11/2001 at 6:25:27 AM
It's a classic English Roadster. You can find a lot of information on them under the English Roadster topic.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Robin Hood posted by Art on 6/11/2001 at 10:17:04 PM
It was made by Raleigh.

   RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Robin Hood posted by ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 6/15/2001 at 11:56:43 AM
Raleigh Cycle Company made the Gazelle line of bicycles but these were getting confused with the Gazelle Company of Holland line of bicycles. So Raleigh changed the name of this line of bikes to Robin Hood. The early ones came in lovely colors and the badge is neat. There was a Robin Hood Cycle company years and years ago but hardly anything is known about it. Raleigh possibly bought the rights to the name when Robin Hood Cycle Co. went under
Raleigh bought up a lot of companies like Rudge,Humber, Triumph bicycles,Phillips merged and became a Raleigh brand name too.
