FOR SALE:   Tandem`s posted by: Tim on 8/9/2002 at 2:04:51 PM
I`m looking for a clean 5speed tandem (prefer Schwinn)
I have a clean single speed Schwinn tandem now any ideas what it`s worth or what I can expect to pay for a 5speed?

Tim, why not work with what you already have? Find a 5/10 speed bike with the same sized wheel as you have on your current tandem or use the hub and lace it to your rim. Then take the rest of the parts you need from the donor bike to finish out the conversion. You'll probably need some cable housing both brake & shifter, some longer (tandem length)inner wires, etc, etc. A very easy conversion. I went to seven speeds with mine.

I have hung on to a white John Deere 12 speed, purchased in 1974. 23" frame, some rust. Does anyone know if this is worth anything?

MISC:   Bike identification and value posted by: Debra on 8/6/2002 at 3:19:12 PM
I have an Old women's Columbia 3 speed Tourist bike. It is yellow with original paint. According to a collector who saw the bike yesterday, it is in "Tip-Top shape."

It belonged to my lateland who died a few yewbyears ago when she was 94. The shop where she bought the bike in Buskirk NY, Bill Cycle Shop is no longer in service. The bike has Stumey Archer parts. The lenses, brake pads, chrome etc.are all good. The only number we could find on it is on the yellow metal near the Rear Drop on the piece of yellow metal covering the wheel spokes.

The number is P562036. I could not find that number amongst the Columbia Serial numbers. I know that the bike is defintely at least 33 years old and more likely over 40 years old. I am trying to find out its aproximate value as I am physically unable to ride the bike.

Any information or suggestions where I can find a price guide or other helpful info. would be greatly appreciated.

On the seat it says Weinman type 610.

Many Blessings, and thank you for your help.

Debra ,

P.S. I live near Albany, NY if anyone wants to see the bike
and or has an interest in purchasing the bike

Does anyone know what year and what this tri-wheeler is worth? I picked it up at an estate sale and after a little clean up we noticed it had probably never been ridden. It still has the nobs on the tires. No dents or scratches. I would appreciate any info.
