FOR SALE:   Sears Three speed internal hub bike posted by: Rodney on 7/17/2001 at 12:49:07 PM
I have a Sears bike that I'm not sure what year,style, or what it's worth. It has a two tone leather spring seat,folding rear rack,and the entire bike is chrome.The threespeed operates by a right hand twist grip that has the markings 333 H-N-L THREE SPEED HUB.It has cable front and rear brakes.The rims are E.A.3 26x1-3/8 M.O. MFG.CO. I have been told that these are british size rims.the rims have western flyer nylon tires.They appear to be original.The entire bike is in good orginal working order. Could anyone help me identify or value this? Any help would be great. I also have other schwinn bikes to deal with. Thank-You

   RE:FOR SALE:   Sears Three speed internal hub bike posted by ken on 7/19/2001 at 1:16:54 PM
The "333" is a Shimano hub, which lacks the cachet that the Sturmey-Archer has, and probably isn't collectable, but you can get the guys on the English Roadster page to tell you all about it. The older Sears 3s were Austrian with S-A hubs.

WANTED:   Any info on a vintage child's "Warrior" bike posted by: Julie on 7/17/2001 at 10:19:22 AM
Does anyone out there have any information on a "warrior" bike? The chain guard has the word "Warrior" on it and there's a logo of an Indian beneath the handle bars. The bike I have is a child's bike with that can convert to either a boys or girls bike. The tires are 20".

I'd be interested in any information anyone could provide about this bike. I'm looking to sell it and would like to know it's approximate value as well.

Thanks so much!

Your bike is built by Stebler

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Any info on a vintage child's posted by Julie on 7/19/2001 at 2:52:22 PM
Thanks for the information! Do you know anything about this company or where I might be able to find the value of this bike?

Thank you.

   RE:RE:RE:WANTED:   Any info on a vintage child's posted by Jim on 7/19/2001 at 7:28:33 PM
The company is out of New York. They made alot of bikes. I have a large Warrior tricyle by Stebler I think I paid about $125 for it. They also made bikes for JC Higgins as well as bikes under the Stebler name. As for a price on your bike it is hard to say. You could always try ebay.

WANTED:   info on schwinn bike rack posted by: john on 7/16/2001 at 1:23:47 PM
hello folks,
I recently ran into a schwinn varsity at the thift store. They used to sell bikes CHEAP!!! Now they want 25 dollars for a varsity. It has a non-schwinn generator and light, but... it has a HUGE-BIG-A$$ rack that is the same green color as the bike. It says "schwinn approved on the side. Does anybody know what this rack is or what its for??? i don't want anyone else to pick it up before i get the chance to get it. Please email me asap. Thanks. John

   RE:WANTED:   info on schwinn bike rack posted by Bob on 7/27/2001 at 10:55:58 PM
Hello. You will need to describe the rack better, as there are too many to fathum. A little story I can share with you is.... I picked up a prewar diamond frame lightweight bike for $ 20.00, it had a rack I needed for my 1941 Schwinn DX bike. The rack usually sell for $75-$100. Need I say more ?
If you like the bike and your going to use it, the price sounds reasonable to me. Good-luck.

MISC:   Schwinn Twinn Deluxe 5 speed value? posted by: Pete on 7/14/2001 at 10:41:24 PM
I have a Schwinn tandem that appears to be from the early to mid 70's, and I was wondering if these are hard to find parts for and are they worth restoring? It appears like all of the original parts are there except for the tires, and there is a fair amount of surface rust on the chrome parts.
I'm a bmx guy and know nothing about these, so any and all info is greatly appreciated. Thanks- Pete

FOR SALE:   PRIMAL FURY BIKE - BY MARIO´S SPECIAL BICYCLES posted by: Stanescon on 7/14/2001 at 3:50:00 PM
I have the real big one, the Primal Fury Bike. It was built on the workshop of Mario´s Special Bicycle, at Itajuba - Brazil. The Primal Fury Bike consists in one Caloi Cruiser Frame with monoblock pedals and monogeared with 46/20 equipped with a double arm fork with 1 meter height!!! The bike is reinforced on the center of the frame by the adding of one steel piece welded to it. It could be mounted with any kind of wheels and still maintaining the bakes because the brakes are locked by the mobile system of two steel pieces forcing one against one on the fork arms, now it was with two 26 1/2" tires and brake only on the rear because the front is too light for put a brake (wheel could be locked). The seat is an specially built krate-type with steel tubes strongly welded one by one and with an confortably cotton seat locked to the bike by rubber bands. The bike have mudguards specially adaptated, Philips trunk front mounted and an Caloi Berlineta handlebar (equal to Easy Rider movie). It is painted in black with white mudguards and trunk. Tires are adequated for mud and gravel tracks. It is delicious for to use on gravel roads and sandy beaches, it´s a real "buggy" bike, but you could use it for ride on the highways like Captain America on Easy Rider movie. I will put an Caloi 10 gear system with 10 gears for optimize the bike power and riding excellent position. I ask US$ 200.00 by it, but I could lower my price if we negotiate...
