MISC:   Need help with bike identity posted by: Scott on 11/25/2004 at 3:25:39 AM
I recently bought a bike at an auction. I thought it looked pretty cool. It has 21" wooden rims. It looks old. Any information would be useful. You can view some pictures here:

I can't decide if I should try to restore it or sell it.


WANTED:   Current want list of 11/22/04 posted by: Kurt K on 11/22/2004 at 11:35:01 PM
Thought I'd post my latest want list again, as I still haven't been able to locate these parts yet:

#1: One Raleigh handlebar and stem. Handlebar MUST be near perfect with NO scrapes, NO pitting. Must have abselutely no under-chrome rust. Surface rust is ok, but it must clean off with no pitting residue. Willing to buy just stem or handlebar if nessesary.

#2: One pair of Raleigh self-adjusting brake calipers. Must have no rust, and levers must not be bent.

#3: One Sturmey-Archer 26 & 1-3/8" 40 hole Endrick rim - Must be reasonably straight - enough that it can be trued when spoked. Light or semi-moderate surface rust is ok, as long as there's good chrome under the rust. Light pitting is ok. No internal rust, please!

#4: Columbia fork crown...that's the little chrome piece on top of the fork. I believe these were used up into the '70s on the Columbia Tourists.

#5: Schwinn handlebars and single binder stem. Used on non-delux Schwinns - the single bolt binds both the handlebar to the steerer tube while simotaniously tightening the handlebars. Must be of the type shown in the photo link here: http://www.jaysmarine.com/schwinn_handlebars.jpg

P.S.: I know there's confusion about the Endrick, Westrick, and Westwood rim names - the picture link below shows a Sturmey-Archer Endrick rim, and a cross section showing it's pattern.


Unlike the Westwood or Westrick, the Endrick does NOT have a raised center section to protect spokes from rod brakes. And yes, the rim in the photo IS bent at the bottom.

Anyone who may have these parts can contact me at: cudak888@aol.com. Please let me know condition and pricing.

Will not respond to "Make me an offer!" emails!

Take care,
