MISC:   1963 26" Schwinn Fiesta Girls Bike posted by: Rob on 4/15/2004 at 1:08:41 PM
I have a 1963 Schwinn Fiesta 26" girls bicycle. It appears to be in pretty good shape, though the tires do not look original. Anyone have any idea of the value range of this bicycle?

Thank you,
Rob G.

   RE:MISC:   1963 26 posted by rob on 4/15/2004 at 4:18:56 PM
Further to the above: The bike is pink and white with nice paint and has chrome fenders and a chrome rack type of thing over the rear fender. The light on the front fender still works. The reason I'm asking is a man saw my daughter riding the bike and offered to by it for $75.00. While we really don't want to sell it as we received it as a gift, we ar now curious about it's value.
Any help would be very much appreciated.

   RE:MISC:   1963 26 posted by Josh Martin on 5/11/2004 at 3:13:26 AM
If your daughter is not too atached to it $75 is resonable but dpending on the condition you may be able to get a little more. I would guess that it just might fetch $150 on e-bay however I may be streching it, I'd have to see a picture. You can e-mail me if you like I'm no expert but have been in the hobby for a while and would gladdly share what I know.

WANTED:   Huffy Rail Frame posted by: Ray on 4/15/2004 at 1:37:45 AM
I'm currently looking a huffy rail frame. I'm not sure if they made the long rail frame in single speed but that's what I'm looking for. Or if it's a five speed that's fine too. doesn't have to be perfact, but just not dented and bent all out of shape. Please email me if someone has one they wanna sell. Just got doing a lowrider in a rail frame and with it longer than your normal frame, it looks nice. Built a custome fender for the rear and did alot of body work. No cutting of the frame though, it still has the old huffy rail look. Thanks for you time


FOR SALE:   Schwinn stingray posted by: Stuart on 4/14/2004 at 3:02:46 AM
Hello, I am selling one of my old stingrays. It is not complete. At the moment it has the Schwinn Stingray frame, headbadge, 26 inch springer fork, sissy bar, cups, bearings, very large apehangers, schwinn goose neck. That is everything except rims, chain, and cranks. I will sell the bike as a whole or if you want only the frame or forks that is fine too. The frame and forks are in very great shape with no rust or dings. the frame has currently 1 layer of black spray paint, it was sandblasted previously so is ready for a new paint job. Let me know and i am open to any offers.

FOR SALE:   1968 Cotton Picker For Sale posted by: Grey on 4/11/2004 at 1:42:41 AM
Hello schwinn collectors. up for sale is this 1968 cotton picker. it still has the tag from when my dad bought it for me before he went into vietnam. it has been sitting in our garage under a blanket ever since. all of the parts are original even the air in the tires. we never rode the bike because we had to move into our own house and gave our house to my grandma. she just recently passed away. so here is your chance to get this brand new but from 1968 cotton picker. i do not know the value of it but my buddy told me about a hundred or two. i will take a hundred for it or best offer. please inquire about it soon because we really have to get rid of it. thank you,

That bike is worth more than a hundred.... Don't give it away....

   RE:FOR SALE:   1968 Cotton Picker For Sale posted by Ray on 4/14/2004 at 7:15:53 PM
This is a belated April fools joke. The Cotton Picker came out in 1970 with some models labeled as 69 for the Christmas rush. No 68s were made. And the real tip off is $100, yeah remember if it is too good to be true....
