WANTED:   !964 Hiawatha Cruiser posted by: J.B. Hoffman on 2/23/2004 at 9:31:43 AM
My first new bike paid for with my paper route. I had the black and red 1964 or 65 model Hiawatha 26 inch cruiser style, It had a rear rack that was chrome, chrome fenders and a tank with twin headlights. There was also a purple version that had the 2 speed Bendix rear axle. These hubs are distinguished by having red stripes around them. I would like to find a nice original or restored model and would be interestaed in any other bike or just a working rear wheel/hub with the Bendix 2 speed. These were shifted by a slight back pedal and had no other outside control.

Hey I have a mint condition superdeluxe Rapido 20 inch bike made in czekosolvakia but i dont know what its worth. Please email me if you have heard of this bicycle. Thanks

Hi Jesse,

I have a Czech Rapido Raleigh Sports clone. My bike is identical to a Raleigh in terms of measurements, but it is very cheaply made. I call it my communist bike. I don't think mine is worth very much money at all dut to its cheap construction. I don't know anything else about these bicycles so your case might be different.

   RE:MISC:    posted by Max on 2/23/2004 at 5:58:15 PM
the Rapido bikes are not worth much , there is a lot of NOS Rapido out here still in the box and people have a hard time selling them for 300$( still in the origianl box)i can't imagine a used one would sell

WANTED:   Information on a Belknap (built by Murray?) tandem bicycle posted by: Craig Crosson on 2/18/2004 at 5:05:21 AM
I have a Belknap tandem bicycle that I acquired from an estate auction. I can't find any information about Belknap bicycles other than that one was restored by dave@nostalgic.net., but it wsn't a tandem. I want to fix it up to ride. Any info out there?

   RE:WANTED:   Information on a Belknap (built by Murray?) tandem bicycle posted by Ken on 2/20/2004 at 7:04:52 PM
Belknap was a hardware company- in Nashville, I think. I'm sure this question has come up at least once here before; you should search the archives here and on Balloon/middleweight. How did you make the Murray connection? If that's the case, you can look at other Murray rebadgers including Sears/J.C. Higgins, Firestone, and there must be lots more. (I have also seen a Murray-built Chicago Cycle Supply Liberty, discussed previously on Oldroads, which surprised me because they badged about a million Schwinn-built bikes... ) This could help you pin down its age and find appropriate parts, although for riding purposes you shouldn't have any fit problems with whatever spares you have. Can we see a picture?

   RE:RE:WANTED:   Information on a Belknap (built by Murray?) tandem bicycle posted by Craig Crosson on 2/22/2004 at 5:03:40 AM
Thanks Ken. It is a tandem with the badge name "Belknap Bluegrass", Serial(?) number by front pedal is 10348. I'll get a picture on as soon as I figure out how. I got the Murray idea from a website of a man who restored a '36 Belknap by Murray, but it wasn't a tandem. I have since learned that there were several makers of old tandems, with Colson making the most. I have looked at Colson tandems on the internet and mine doesn't look anything like them. I'll work on the photo.

I responded to this inquiry in another list on this site.
Belknap Hardware Co. Louisville KY. KY is "the bluegrass state". They had house-branded bikes from many makers in their line. My first bike was a re-branded Raleigh from Belknap,the same year, my brother's first bike was a 20" re-branded Schwinn with semi-pneumatic tires.

My attempt to put a picture on this site didn't work, but I did locate a bike just like mine already on this database. Mine is a red Belknap, this is a blue "Firestone" tandem. I still don't know the what company made them.

   RE:WANTED:   Information on a Belknap (built by Murray?) tandem bicycle posted by Craig Crosson on 2/25/2004 at 3:31:21 PM
No luck with uploading a photo. I did find one on this database like it though. Mine is a red "Belknap Bluegrass", the one already on here is a blue "Firestone" tandem. Still don't know who the manufacturer was.

WANTED:   Allvit rear derailleur pulleys posted by: Tom on 2/16/2004 at 7:08:47 PM
The rubber on the rear Huret Allvit derailleur pulleys has disintegrated. One pulley I can get loose. The other pulley appears – but may not be – a press fit. Question #1: Is it a press fit, or just tight? Question #2: Where can I get replacement pulleys? None of the local bike shops have even heard of Allvit! Thanks.

If you don't get an answer here, try the lightweight forum.

   RE:WANTED:   Allvit rear derailleur pulleys posted by Joe on 2/17/2004 at 8:07:14 AM
Try searching on eBay, they show up from time to time, the same pulleys fit most of the Huret derailleurs, the last set I saw went for about $15. You may be able to adapt a set of Shimano or other brand jockey wheels in a pinch. Many of the Huret jockey wheels are ajustable ball bearing type.

   RE:WANTED:   Allvit rear derailleur pulleys posted by Eric Amlie on 2/17/2004 at 2:03:42 PM
It's probably the upper pulley that you can't get loose. I assume you have one side of the cage off. On the side with the remaining cage, the pulley bearing cone has flats on it for a 13mm cone wrench. You can reach in there with the cone wrench and unthread the pulley from the cage. I had to grind a cone wrench down a little thinner to get it to fit in the narrow space provided.

Interesting to read that, it'll help me out also.
I have a question still. Back in the day when this derailer was hot stuff and a new wonderful thing. Was there a special tool sold by somebody? A real easy to use , honest to goodness tool that was sold by Huret or somebody else that made stripping and re-building these Huret Alvits easy or did everybody just gring down a 13 mm cone wrench like Eric said to do? I never see Huret related tools up for auction!
I have had fits working with these because of exactly that same problem as the above fellow mentioned.
Thanks! I love this board.
