MISC:   need help with identification posted by: kevin lambert on 7/6/2001 at 5:26:14 PM
I just bought an old beach cruiser and was wondering if anyone could help i.d. the manufacturer. The rear hub says "new departure" model D, made in U.S.A. The serial number on the drop out for rear wheel is W177816 and has the numbers 5 and 6 with a horizontal pyramid shape in the middle of the numbers. On the neck post are two rivits the look like they held on a circular emblem. they are verticle about 2-2.5 inches apart. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

   What are you talking about? posted by Gary M on 7/7/2001 at 4:35:07 PM
I am sure some of the collectors here get bikes in and out a lot. I turn 10-20 used bikes a week here in my shop. The collectibles i just keep. I want to make a small museum someday, with my old bikes. My collection is a drop in the bucket compared to a pal of mines, But i usually have 2-300
bikes on hand here. Write anything you want, i think its fun. Nothing more fun then poking an old alley cat. and yes i will keep collecting these things as long as they cost next to nothing. If you cant come up with an intelligent insult or comeback, dont bother, the next guy will!! Loving the fun.. Gary

Somebody out there is bound to have one of these in rough condition in their stash ... seeking an English Falcon San Remo frameset in functional condition - the nastier looking, the better, really. I would even consider one without a headbadge, though that's really stretching it. Cheap is very good, though I do have a few interesting lightweight bits I could trade ...
