FOR SALE:   Dunelt Bicycle posted by: Cindi Crisler on 11/6/2003 at 7:20:53 PM
I have been given the challenge to sell two bicycles for an elderly lady whose husband has recently died. They have had these bikes since the 1960's. Both of them are Dunelt. They look original. One is red and the other is blue. I have no idea how much they are worth or how much to ask for them. Can someone tell me? I was thinking of putting them on ebay for this lady. The numbers on the bikes are 40JY and 2295JY.

Dunelts were a bit down the line from the top end English threespeed bikes. They might sell for $50 tops unless someone falls in love on ebay.

First you should figure out the year (look on the rear hub for a two digit date code). Then decribe their condition, style (men's frame or women's frame, lights, generator) etc.

These bikes in good running condition can easily command $100 each. They are easy to ride, have full fenders, are comfortable and are quite popular in cities and college campuses where people actually use bikes for transportation.

WANTED:   Western Fyer Ramrod posted by: Bill on 11/6/2003 at 4:04:00 PM
When I was a kid I worked all summer for my dad for a quarter an hour to pay for this bike. He saw I wasn’t going to have it paid for by the end of summer and gave me a raise to 50 cents an hour. I got the bike and had many years of enjoyment with it, but when I was old enough to drive it was left to rust. Not realizing the rarity of it at the time, I ended up giving it along with several other bikes to an overseas charity that a member of my church belonged to. Now I want it back and will have to pay for it all over again. I am sure there has to be some out there that need a good home, and I hope you can help me find it. They made a ramrod I and a ramrod II but I don’t remember what the difference was, probably insignificant. It is a chopper bike with long front forks. The closer to West Virginia the better.

WANTED:   Old Cheetah pedal trike from the 1970s posted by: Tony on 11/5/2003 at 5:24:36 PM
I used to have one of these when I was a kid and want to find one for my own kids to ride! I grew up in Los Angeles in the San Fernando Valley and can't find even a picture of one on the internet! Has anyone heard of this before? It looked sort of like a "chopper" motorcycle with three wheels, two big ones in the back and one small one in the front. You sat down with your legs in front of you and you pushed the pedals back and forth to create a "friction power/motor" that would make it go! (much faster than pure pedal power alone). It was popular around the time of Big Wheels and The Green Machine, but this was much, much cooler! If you know of any information or a website or if you have one that is in working order and you want to sell it, please let me know.

It was made in china. just had military mont thatsaid heavey duty on it. you can match the font with the rest of the bike and any transfer or decl maker can reproduce it, but really the value isnt going to change much with or without it
