Have an English 3 speed BSA bike - husband thinks it's worth something - I don't know anything about it. Is it worth saving?

   RE:MISC:   Need info posted by Jeff on 7/11/2002 at 12:52:53 PM
BSA bicycles are collected both by English bicycle collectors and motorcycle collectors.

Don't let a dealer grab it from you for cheap!

WANTED:   ORIGINAL Raleigh tire pump wanted posted by: Charles on 7/10/2002 at 12:42:02 AM
I would like to buy an original tire pump from the late 40's to the late 50's.The main body is 7/8" diameter and the entire pump is made of aluminum.
These pumps have a cotton hose that screws into the handle when not in use and onto the other end when in use.They were produced from at least 1948 until atleast 1957.The handle is smooth and has a lip at the end facing the main tube.The main body is also smooth.Both ends are rounded off.I will pay your price,but please only an ORIGINAL pump and not a new reproduction or Chinese knock-off.I believe these were made in USA or made in England and imported to the USA.I have a picture from a parts manual if that helps.I KNOW that there are still some of these left floating around,so please look in your stash of bicycle parts and sell it to me so I can finish this restoration.
My email address is a1959HDscooter@aol.com Thanks ...Charles

FOR SALE:   '55 Rollfast - SpeedRacer '26 Girls/Women's bike posted by: BonnieK on 7/8/2002 at 11:25:10 PM
Hey from GA! After I cleaned out my dad's basement - I found my '55 Kelly Green Rollfast SpeedRacer tucked away in a corner. Although the bike holds wonderful memories for me - I need to sell it due to an upcoming move. The bike is structually sound, does have minor pitting & rust & dents in some places, and is missing a front wheel headlight. It DOES have the original balloon tires - labeled CARLDENG 26x1,75-Made in Belgium (they were flat when I found the bike). The bike does have the original logos with the SpeedRacer logo near to the pedals (which are also originals). It also has the original seat with the label
"TROXEL-Elyria, Ohio" underneath. I can supply pictures for the interested buyer. I'm asking $125.00 (plus the buyer to pay for the shipping) for the bike.
