MISC:   Decal Printer posted by: Jay on 2/11/2002 at 5:29:46 AM
I remember reading something a while back about a printer that could print white & you could put decal paper in & make your own decals. Does anyone know what brand & model this is?

   RE:MISC:   Decal Printer posted by Ralph on 2/11/2002 at 2:57:54 PM
Here is the web site for the one that was mentioned here before. http://www.ceramic-decal.com/Default.cfm I saved it thinking it was be somthing I might use in the future.
There is also a guy named Alex that can make stickers that work real well, here is his email guitarwind@rogers.com
Hope this helps.......

   RE:MISC:   Decal Printer posted by kim on 2/12/2002 at 4:31:11 AM
You are thinking of a dry ink printer, like the Alps. You will also need good scaner and photo software. I know I have been printing decals for a few months.

FOR SALE:   Schwinn Hollywood bicycle posted by: Bernard Cogley on 2/10/2002 at 1:45:55 AM
I have a green,1970 Schwinn Hollywood bicycle for sale. Serial No. HF91944, 18" frame. It's original and in good to very good condition. What would be a fair asking price?

   RE:FOR SALE:   Schwinn Hollywood bicycle posted by Dan on 2/10/2002 at 3:05:36 AM
I recently paid $45 for a 1965 Hollywood with a basket and rear rack. It had been repainted and lacked any stickers but overall in good shape and was very clean. I also spent a $1.00 on two Hollywoods a 1966 and a 1971 which were rough but complete, parts bikes.

   Schwinn Hollywood bicycle posted by Gary M on 2/10/2002 at 5:21:11 AM
I have a real nice 65 hollywood in blue, rack in front, 2sp rear, asking $125

   RE:Schwinn Hollywood bicycle posted by Dan on 2/10/2002 at 10:54:07 PM
My '65 Hollywood is not for sale I just wanted to show what a starting price range could be. At $45 I got a '65 Hollywood, repainted no stickers, one chrome front rim a painted in back (S-7's), faded seat slight cracks, stem and handlebars with some deep rust, but it was very clean front to back. I waited 6 1/2 hour's at an auction for it to come up for sale in the meantime I bought a record turntable strobe model for .25 which was like new and works well and I also got a Bell & Howell projector and screen for the same .25 cents that the auctioneer threw in with it. I sold the projector and screen for $10.00 so I like to think I paid $ 35.25 for my '65 Hollywood in the end. The end.

   RE:Watch out for Gary M. posted by Ralph on 2/11/2002 at 5:10:39 AM
Watch out for Gary M. He seems to be a great guy. However says he will do someting and does not follow up. I have been waiting 3 months for parts I paid $40.00 for. He is poor at follow up after he has your money.
