I am looking for serial number information for a French bike, a Louison Bobet. There are several numbers stamped on the bottom bracket, but do not seem to give the year. If anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it. Also, values for bikes of this type (French road bike with Campy parts, in good condition, 12 speeds). Thanks!

I have a set of wheels for a Twenty. (20 x 1.75)I built a set of custom wheels for the bicycle and don't need them anymore. This is a 1969 original set with rebuilt hubs. The original Raleigh tires with red stripes are on them. The back hub is a SA AW. The front hub has the oil port. The hubs are 36 spoke. Over all in good shape, not rusted. FORD906@CS.com I can send photos on request. I sell on Ebay but I thought this may be a better place. I live in the Niagara Falls, NY area and I can ship them. Ed

I was given a bike for my daughter. It is a sears spyder 500. I am not sure what year it is, but it has a flower banana seat and it is a purple/red color. I just want to learn more about this bike. If anyone has any information on it, I would appreciate it. I can provide a picture if need be.

I forgot to mention that it is a female bike with only one speed, With rear brake. (the kind you have to push back on the pedal to stop)

I used to have one of those.500? I think it was around $69 bucks. It was red and white with a shiny speckled banana seat and tassles coming out of the grips. I was mad at my parents because I wanted a schwinn . What a brat! I can't remember what happened to it. I was a decent bike now that I look back. 1977?
