Got some NOS 700D Araya alloy set of fr/rear wheels, quick release hubs, inc. NOS 700D tires , tubes holding air, ready to roll.
This is a new one for me, what sort of bike used that size?

   RE:FOR SALE:   700D wheels posted by Jeff bikeguy on 6/23/2002 at 6:58:14 PM
GT made a higher-end hybrid bike that used a funky 700 rim and tire back around 1993. This was the only bike that I know of that used them. Post these for sale on the old school mountain bike forum and you might get a bite.

I have a Continental 3 speed bike. I think it is a West German bike. I have tried to find info without luck. Has anyone heard of this bike?

   RE:MISC:   Continental 3 spd. posted by M on 6/21/2002 at 10:44:22 PM
Would that be the Schwinn Continental 3-speed? If so, there is a lot of information on it. What other markings (decals) does it have? What does the headbadge say exactly?

At last count I had 18 bikes in the garage. I'm sure thjat's small time for some of you, but for me it means some have to go to make room. I'm working on scanning pictures, but FYI the ones for sale include:

-- a 1947 Columbia womans balloon tire with front rack. Blue. Complete and ridable on original tires. Great restoration prospect or conversation piece.

-- a 196? Sears Flightliner. Red/white/chrome. Good condition. Includes front dual beam headlight and rear rack. Missing front fender.

-- a 1974 Schwinn Speedster 3-sp. Red. Complete. V. Good condition. Restoration in progress. Just repacked BB and HS. needs new brake cables/housing. Solid. No rattles.

-- 192? CCM tricycle. Red. Original and complete. Cotterless cranks, dbl. butted spokes. Elegant, minimalist design.

-- 1965 Western Flyer middleweight single speed w/coaster brake. Originally red but now orange due to fading from Texas sun according to PO. Complete. restoration in progress. Repacked BB and HS. Need to do same w.hubs. Nice cantilever frame w.lug construction. Would make a nice comfortable ride.

195? Monarch Super Deluxe womans balloon tire. Green w/black lettering/stripes. Complete w/ original springer fork, front headlight and rear rack. White wall tires. Chrome needs to be redone on fork crown, cranks and rear rack.

Will sell all, as is, for $600 or individually for negotiated price. I'm still keeping other rides i have cleaned/restored but simply need more room.

My wife wants me to clean out the garage. I have a 1974 model Schwinn Continental that I need to get rid of. Does it have any value or should I just leave it at curb for the trash pickup? Its baby blue and needs new rubber(tires and brakes). I'm in Houston if anyone is interested before it hits the scrap heap.

WANTED:   40 Hole 26" Rims posted by: Kevin Straight on 6/20/2002 at 2:58:00 AM
I am looking for 26" rims (prefferably alloy, but steel is ok too). The catch is, they need to either have 40 holes, or be undrilled (I can drill my own).

The idea is to utilize several 40-hole AW hubs I have around the shop.

If you have any to sell or know of a supplier, please contact me.

   RE:WANTED:   40 Hole 26 posted by Robert N. on 6/22/2002 at 10:08:03 PM
Sheldon Brown's site would be a good place to start.

Looking to replace rear slick on recently restored muscle bike. Currently resting on a flat 20x2.125, but 20x1.75 might work better(20x2.125 rubbed inside of fork slightly)
