   RE:WANTED:   Raleigh Space Rider posted by Gordon on 1/16/2002 at 5:05:44 AM
Is this bike like a 20" Raleigh or Hercules type? Ridge down the center? If so, I think I have a set of new chrome fenders with braces that would fit.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Raleigh Space Rider posted by Bryant on 1/16/2002 at 7:32:19 PM
I'm not sure, let me double check. I do know it's a Raleigh 20" wheels but do not know if the fender has a ridge or not. I'll get back to you.

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Raleigh Space Rider posted by Bryant on 1/16/2002 at 9:46:16 PM
my mistake. The Raleigh has 24" wheels but the rear fender does have a ridge down the center.

WANTED:   J.C. Higgins Flightliner posted by: Steve on 1/14/2002 at 12:05:55 AM
I desperately need parts for a mens Flightliner. It looks like a 62-63? I need front fork and handlebars, also a good front wheel. It has the 3 speed rear which i know nothing about. Anyone?

   RE:WANTED:   J.C. Higgins Flightliner posted by Joel on 1/14/2002 at 3:29:46 PM
I may have the parts you need.

   RE:WANTED:   J.C. Higgins Flightliner posted by Ken on 1/18/2002 at 8:36:10 PM
There is a repro of the Sears catalog page for Flightliner in Evolution of the Bicycle -maybe vol.1 if memory serves, but it seldom does... - It indicates that the Deluxe model had the Bendix 2-speed. I would appreciate any information on any 3-speed Flightliner.

MISC:   Free to a good Bay Area home posted by: Fred on 1/13/2002 at 9:02:50 PM
I have an older Schwinn basket case. The serial number is HO28780, which I believe makes it a vintage 1951. There is a frame, a rear wheel (painted) w/skip-tooth sprocket and coaster brake, and a skip-tooth front sprocket. No chain. There's also a seat and handlebars, but I don't think they're original. Also have fenders, but I'm not sure they go with this bike. This bike was made over (ahem) in the late 60s, and has spent some time outside (read: rust), so it's really only good for parts or for some really serious restorer.

I'm in the SF Bay Area -- south Alameda County. I will give this bike to a good home. Acquirer must pick it up and take everything.

Please email me at fredsandsmark@yahoo.com. First come, first served.
