FOR SALE:   Kickstand posted by: Wes on 7/3/2004 at 8:54:56 PM
Hey, I'm looking for a rear axle mount kickstand for a pre-1933 28" bicycle. I need the complete unit, with the clip and the stop for it as that little fin isn't built onto my frame.

Also (crossing fingers and praying for a bit of luck) I need the tank for this bicycle too. It's a Flying star, which I believe is Schwinn built, so it's the motorbike style unit.

Thirdly, I'm looking for a set of truss rods for a 28-inch bicycle. I'm transferring to a new school in the fall, and would like to have this bike roadworthy for my bicycling adventures in the south.

Lastly, any information/pictures/etc. as to the original paint scheme/accessories that this bike would've/may've had would be helpful. (Especially that cylindrical thing that hangs under the crossbars on the frame) Ther bike looks similar to the pictures of the old 20's/30's excelsiors but I don't know what this particular model would've been equipped with.

WANTED:   26" heavyweight Schwinn fork (no springer) posted by: Kurt K on 7/2/2004 at 10:29:35 PM
Looking for a reasonably priced 26" heavyweight Schwinn fixed fork, not a springer. Paint and paint condition is not important.

As long as the fork's head tube thread is useable and that the metal is clean - surface rust is of no concern to me, deep rust that Bondo can't fix is.

Drop me a line at cudak888@aol.com if you have such an item for sale. Let me know price, shipping (if possible), and a photo, if you have one.

Thank you very much.

Take care,

i was hoping you people could give me some info on a bicycle i got at a garage sale. it is in good condition Viner special Professional road bike it looks like it was made in the 70's or 80's and it has shimano 600 components. Anyone have any info on value or reputation?Thank you.

   RE:MISC:   viner bike posted by Ken on 7/2/2004 at 1:35:17 PM
Reputation is good:
...but don't be fooled by the high-end model's value with top Campagnolo gear. While Shimano 600 are very good components, and the old ones have that nice engraving, they are by no means rare. Some of the people on the vintage lightweight board may have info on the frame materials and the lineup of models.
Anyway it's a fabulous garage sale find. Congratulations.

WANTED:   Information on Mystery Trike (Adult) posted by: Jess on 7/1/2004 at 7:34:35 PM
Hello. I happend across a schwinn trike in a yard and luckily the guy sold it to me. I love my trike and I want to know a little more about it (year, etc). It's an adult trike, has the old schwinn tires (size 24 x ?), when I look closely I can see where "Town and Country" once was, and it's a 3 speed. Any ideas?

WANTED:   vintage women's schwinn posted by: louis on 6/29/2004 at 8:34:17 PM
trying to help a friend of mine find a vintage women's schwinn - she really likes the breeze with the coaster brake and sa hub/trigger shifter. only trouble is, she's 5' 11", and we're coming up with plenty of 17" frames, not not much larger. can anyone point me towards a definitive resource for the different schwinn frame sizes manufactured by model so that we don't waste time looking for something which doesn't exist?

if you have information (or better still a large, women's schwinn breeze 3 speed in green), please feel free to contact me by email (removing the 'don't like spam' and 'no he don't) from my email address as well as posting to the group.

thanks in advance,


   RE:WANTED:   vintage women's schwinn posted by Eric Amlie on 6/30/2004 at 9:01:15 PM
I think the largest women's frame that Schwinn made was 22"(except for maybe a custom made Paramount frame), and that probably wasn't available on the Breeze either. I know some of the women's Super Sports had 22" frames but these probably wouldn't be big enough for your friend either. You can look through the model specs listed on Bob Hufford's Schwinn Lightweight Data Book website to see if you can come up with anything.
