Hello, I have come across two old CCM lady bikes. One is a Hiawatha and the other is an Encore. They are both in good condition. The Hiawatha has balloon tires and the Encore is a nice blue original color. Are these worth anything?

MISC:   Matching '73 Schwinn Breeze & Speedster posted by: John M Hopkins on 5/3/2003 at 2:49:35 PM
I have a matching pair of his and hers Schwinn 3-speed 26" bicycles in fairly good condition. The men's version is the 'Speedster'; ser# BJ592446, Sturmey-Archer AW - stamped 73 1. The ladies is the 'Breeze'; ser# EJ618704, Sturmey-Archer AW - stamped 72 8. Both are green and all-original (except tyres and brake pads). Anyone have an idea of what they might be worth?

   RE:MISC:   Matching '73 Schwinn Breeze & Speedster posted by From the Hip on 5/3/2003 at 9:14:06 PM
I'd say $100 for the pair in good condition would be fair to you and the buyer.

FOR SALE:   pre 1933 humber posted by: Sylvia Prys Jones on 5/3/2003 at 10:21:51 AM
I still have my grandfather's bike which is a Humber, 1933 at the latest according to my father who was born in 1922 and remembers his father riding it. It was beautifully cared for by my grandfather who kept all his machinery in immaculate condition. It's been in a shed for many years now. It's still in fairly good condition, a bit rusty and the leather seat is a bit shrunk. My husband was still riding it a few years ago! A friend of ours borrowed it a few years ago to use in a television series and I don't know whether he just cleaned it up or actually replaced parts.I know nothing whatsoever about bikes.I don't want to make money out of it but obviously I don't want to sell it for a fiver and find that it's worth more than that. Basically I'd like it to go to a good home.

   RE:FOR SALE:   pre 1933 humber posted by bobby on 7/1/2003 at 5:44:47 AM

thanks a million !

   RE:FOR SALE:   pre 1933 humber posted by T.R. Ford on 6/19/2003 at 10:43:46 PM
I had a '33 Humber in good condition -- all original parts, good paint (black) and good mechanical condition. It saw constant use on nine college and university campuses and a delightful trip from Providence,R.I. to Quebec and back. Five years ago I sold it to a nephew for $20 who used it until stolen 2 years ago. It was a solid, no-nonsense form of transportation. I would love to have one again. How much are you asking for it and where would it have to shipped from or picked up?

FOR SALE:   Schwinn Mag Scrambler BMX 79' posted by: James Rokowski on 5/1/2003 at 1:11:00 AM
I have an Schwinn Mag Scrambler BMX bike with Skyway Tuff wheel II. I am not sure of the exact year. I would say circa 1979. The serial number on the head tube is KR527808. The serial numbers on the Skyway wheels front 0059198 and rear 0057356. The bike is in original condition with what seams to be all original parts. Paint scheme is sliver and red. The decals are still present. The down tube decal is the worst for wear. The crank reads Schwinn. The Coaster brake is Suntour. The bike has a set of four reflectors, front, rear and two on the wheels. The saddle seems in very good condition and reads BMX and Schwinn. The medallion on the head tube is riveted on and reads Schwinn, 1211 and Chicago. The grips are in good condition. There are three pads on the handle bar, neck and top tube in good condition. The tires read Schwinn Scrambler BX on them. The front is in good condition and rear tire is fair condition. The bike has some scratches on it but overall is in good shape. I can provide pictures. If you have any questions please feel free to email me. jrokowski@hotmail.com
