Just saw your post; are these bikes still available?
I'm only interested in the Moto but might take the others
if they have useful parts. Can you give me some idea of how
the Fuji and the Ross are set up?
Please reply to my email.

Want to buy a schwinn run-a-bout or any other 60s/70s folding bike. E-mail or respond if you got one.

   RE:WANTED:   Run-A-Bout posted by Jim on 6/16/2002 at 9:59:50 AM
A Run-About isn't a folding bike. The frame is solid; the handlebars and seat post have quick releases.

FOR SALE:   Fuji Royal 12 speed racing bike posted by: Lori on 5/31/2002 at 11:55:13 PM
It's in great shape. Lightly ridden. Still shiny. Seat in excellent condition too. The only thing you'll probably need to do is put on new tires and align the spokes/rims. I love this bike but after 2 back surgeries I can't lean over the right way to ride it like it should be ridden. Would love to sell it to someone who would provide it with a new home and proper TLC. This bike was $425 new in 1982 so it's a high quality bike. Make best offer over $150 and it's yours. It lives in Montgomery county Maryland.

WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by: Mitch on 5/31/2002 at 5:38:00 PM
Hi,I am looking for the whatchamacallit thing that covers the end of the axle of the Scwhinn Town and Country Tri-wheeler. it's a little black plastic cover which sticks on the very end of the axle on each back wheel. If anybody has one to sell, I'd appreciate it if you's let me know. Thanks a lot!

   RE:WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by Stacey on 5/31/2002 at 5:53:37 PM
Gee Mitch, get in line... behind me. LOL Those things are tough to find, and dearly priced when you do find them. Expext to pay about $10 each when you find them. For that kind of money I can improvise!

   RE:WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by MNSmith on 5/31/2002 at 6:10:29 PM
Would automotive vacuum caps do the trick??

   RE:WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by edgarecks on 5/31/2002 at 7:12:34 PM
I went to Ace Hardware and got plastic furniture tips. They don't have the dome thing, on them, but they're better than nothing and cheap (about 50 cents each)!

   RE:RE:WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by Stacey on 5/31/2002 at 9:14:09 PM
I was thinking of using a pair of those little plastic 'hat' things that go on the ends of bike axles to keep them from poking through the box.

Mitch, if you e-mail me your address, I send you the one I have. One is of no use to me, and if it will complete your project... hey, I'm a sport. It's a bit scuffed and dirty, but aren't they all?

   RE:WANTED:   looking for little whatchamacallit posted by Mitch on 6/3/2002 at 9:58:16 PM
Ok, I'm in line! Are the pins which connect the back wheels to the axle any easier to find?

The classic bike show will feature 3 catagories, Best Early Classic(pre 1930), Best Mid Classic(1930-1960), and best late classic(post 1960). There will be one winner per catagory and they will recieve $100 and a plaque. There will be road courses for bike rides, safety courses for families, corporate reps from several bicycle companies.
