MISC:   Pink girl schwinn bicycle posted by: R Jones on 11/14/2002 at 1:05:10 AM
I bought this bike because I wanted just a plain older bike to ride. This bike has original pink paint and schwinn name.
How can I tell how old this bike is. I have a flat tire at this time other than the flat the bike is in fair condition. The tire that is flat has white side walls however that tire is old and needs replaced. My question is do I have a collectable bike?

WANTED:   Generator lights posted by: Pat on 11/11/2002 at 1:52:08 AM
I am looking for the name, or some information on where I can purchase the old style generator lights. I'm thinking of the one piece light/generator units that clamped onto the front fork. I could have sworn these lights were made in France. Any clues? I'm looking to put these units on some of the old Raleigh 3-speeds I've restored. Please e-mail me at phxcape@hotmail.com

FOR SALE:   What is this worth? posted by: Jon on 11/11/2002 at 12:57:16 AM
I just recieved a Raleigh Grand Prix S/N RE779739 The chrome is starting to rust on the lower forks but the frame is SOLID. Just needs repainting and new decals.
It is Brown with all original Raleigh Derailers and brakes. Missing handlebars and saddle. I think it must be a 58-60cm. It is to big for me I ride a 55cm Bianchi Campione. Any idea what it is worth?

   RE:FOR SALE: What is this worth? posted by Pat on 11/11/2002 at 2:05:08 AM
The Grand Prix was one of the less expensive Raleighs. Check to see if it was made in England or not. The Raleigh deraileurs are usually Huret or Suntour Hero. Sad to say, it's not worth much, dollar wise, maybe $50 or under. Check out Harris Cyclery on the web. They may have a more accurate price. Pat

Wanted Looking for monarch supertwin,my dad had one when he was a kid.Any info appeciated!!!

   RE:WANTED:   monarch supertwin posted by JimW. on 11/12/2002 at 3:53:34 PM
Your dad was one lucky kid! Those motorbikes are very desirable, and not common. You can expect to pay a lot of $$$ for a good one. One of the SuperTwin engines showed up on eBay a couple of months ago You'll have more luck finding information on the web if you spell it Monark. Monarch was a different make. There's a period photo of the SuperTwin at the bottom of the page at: http://www.geocities.com/whizzer_17044/waywewere.html
Good luck in your quest.

MISC:   Torrot modelo patentado posted by: axel on 11/9/2002 at 12:57:18 AM
I recently saved a 70's Torrot road bike from the jaws of bike hell. I need info on this bike. It has olympic rings on all of the decals, and the derailleurs and shifters were simplex prestige. The brakes and other components are all "Super Olimpic". It says "modelo patentado" in several places as well. The frame is in excellent shape, but some of the components are totally destroyed. Any info would be greatly appreciated!
