MISC:   firestone warrior vagabond posted by: Gerry on 5/24/2004 at 9:49:20 PM

I'm from Glasgow in Scotland and for a number of years I have had in my possesion a firestone warrior vagabond gents bicycle. It is racing green with a gold trim on the mudguards. It has a back pedal system for braking and is a single gear bike wit a very upright sitting postion. I believe it may have had some sort of advertisement or sign attatatched to the cross bar as there is a clip there with a small piece of broken plastic attached.
I bought this bike from an elderly American who was resident in the UK for a number of years and he had bought it at an auction house in Cincinnatti or Chicago, the auctioners had an Irish name like Corrigans or O'Hare something like that, maybe I'm just mixing the latter up with the airport of that name. Anyway I would be greatful for any feedback on it, such as history and price. I still cycle it as I love riding it and I love the strange looks and comment I get whilst out on it.

I can't find a mfg. name anywhere. There is an HA on the headlight where you would attach it to the bike. I don't know how to put a picture on here. If you'd like I would send a picture in the mail.

I have in my possesion a 1976 as (as far as I cam tell) girls PINK Huffy 2 wheel bike. It has plastic fenders and a pink vinyl seat. I also has a nice large basket, (added?) and needs tires (for sure) and a chain (maybe, it is there, but not sure if it is usable). What would the value on this bike be, and is there a market or are they an everyday item. This bike is really in good (but dusty) condition. Maybe I'm in the wrong area?

Hello! I just posted a message of my own a few minutes ago and then I spotted yours...is the "tricycle" an adult trike? My post was about wanting to know more about adult trikes. Actually, I REALLY want to buy one- I'm a college student and it seems like the perfect mode of transport for myself and my sewing/art/textile supplies. Where did you find this for sale? -Mink in Michigan :)
