WANTED:   INFORMATION: RENTING ANTIQUE BIKES posted by: Brian on 3/24/2002 at 3:12:28 AM
Has anyone rented antique bicycles to film companies or businesses for promotion? I have on occasion but never know what to charge. I usually take what ever the "propmaster" offers. Is there a price guideline?

   RE:WANTED:   INFORMATION: RENTING ANTIQUE BIKES posted by ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 3/24/2002 at 5:45:38 PM
I hear from lots of folks that it isn't worth the bother and risk. The stuff comes back dented, or damaged or sometimes not at all.

   RE:WANTED:   INFORMATION: RENTING ANTIQUE BIKES posted by citizen cane on 3/25/2002 at 3:49:02 AM
have you ever seen the movie o'brother where art thou the old ford that george nelson and the soggy bottom boys are driving came from topeka kansas and the person that owns the vehicle rented it out to those guys and they tore it up they had put some kind of tape down the side of it because they wanted to cover up the pinstripe well when the tape was removed so was the paint it was used for a stunt which it wasn't supossed to and several other things was wrong with it the price it was rented for barely covered the repairs. and also the movie KANSAS with matt dillon my friends house was used it is located across the street from our local moose lodge the cast and crew had tore the house up including ciggarett burns in carpet and hole's in the wall so all in all it's not worth lending or renting stuff to those people

MISC:   Speedwell 28" posted by: Geoff on 3/23/2002 at 2:11:45 PM
I would simply like to know if the 71 year old Speedwell Bicycle has any sale value. It has 28" wheels, no accessories, back-pedal (Hub) brake, and the original hinged oil filler caps on axle etc. The original Irridescant Green paint with transfer striping has been replaced by a hot-dip baked finish in bronze. This bike has enormous sentimental value, having owned the bike for 41 years. (It was 30 years old when given to me at age 14)I am still riding it occasionally.
My children/grandchildren are not interested in riding it, and I would hate to see it rust away. If I cannot find a good sale price I will just hang the bike on a wall until I croak ! Regards Geoff. (Maybe "Speedwell" company representatives would be interested for nostalgia ?)

   RE:MISC:   Speedwell 28 posted by KevinC. on 3/24/2002 at 12:49:22 AM
Keep it! Ride it! It won't have enormous sentimental value to anyone else.

   RE:MISC:   Speedwell 28 posted by ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 3/24/2002 at 5:43:43 PM
How can he get them interested in it? Ask them to ride it, get them hooked! Keep it until you croak sounds great to me. Enjoy it!
You can't take it with you. A 28 inch wheel bike is a smooth riding bike!
