FOR SALE:   Vintage Schwinn Bike Shop Posters, MINT posted by: Jonathan P on 12/12/2006 at 5:29:01 PM
Hello, I thought I would let you all know about these posters. I found a few recently on ebay for Schwinn bikes. These are great and I have already bought the one I wanted. She said she was going to be putting more online this week. If you look up completed auctions for Schwinn poster they will almost all be from the same seller. She'll be listing more soon. Good luck! I hope you all find a great one for your bike garage! I did! - Jon

FOR SALE:   Lovely old Raleigh roadster posted by: Pete on 12/11/2006 at 4:46:17 PM
I have a lovely old 1962 Raleigh roadster that I may be forced to regrettably have to part company with due to having too many bikes and several project bikes on the go at the moment.I don't want this bike to fall into the wrong hands as it has a very special place in my heart and I would be genuinely tearful to see it go that is why I am placing it here rather than ebay or suchlike in the hope that the right sort of person who will love it and look after it might want it rather than some disrespectful twerp who would use it and abuse it or use it as a cheap form of transport.The bike was bought by me some years ago from the relative who inherited it from the original owner who obviously cherished it as much as I do.When it came into my hands the whole bike was covered in grease and oil to preserve it (Although this did not fully hold back the ravages of time and bad storage on the part of the chap who inherited it) The bike is a 1962 Raleigh roadster with a 4 speed sturmey archer dynohub, dry battery unit,raleigh kickstand,rear rack,full chaincase,locking forks with key,full light set,brooks raleigh green saddle(bet you never seen one of them before),original dyno cables in green,stainless steel rims and spokes,saddle bag and a rather nice old bell(I am sure I missed something from the description so please e:mail me if you have any questions) If you go to you can see it for yourself or just click on the click for photo button below.The bike is not perfect as to be expected but as you will see from the photos it is a genuine and lovely old bike with a fantastic patina about it that would be spoilt if restored.Some of the coachlines have been polished to the extent of just being visible and I blasted the mudguards and painted them (I am a paint sprayer by trade)inside and out and reapplied the correct decal on the rear guard as they were letting the bike down somewhat.The images also make the headlamp look better than it is,don't get me wrong it's not horrible but it has got speckling to the chrome.Look at the condition of the pedals and other bits and you will see the bike has hardly ever been rode with its original pedal rubbers and brake blocks etc and it rides like a new bike (only better) and sails down the road in near silence making that noise that only a proper well engineered bike can make.The only thing this bike needs is a green Raleigh pump to make it complete.Be warned though wherever you go people will come up to you and ask you all about it and say things like nice bike,my dad had one of them,what year is it,what's that tube for?(dbu) etc.It also comes with new tyres tubes (one of the tubes has one of those horrible newer type valves as I couldn't wait for a week to get a matching pair,the tyres are Raleigh 26x 1 3/8)
As you can tell from my description I love this bike and don't really want to sell it but if you look at the english roadster section on this site you will see that I have other bikes that need finishing/money spent on them etc.I am open to genuine offers for the bike but I will refuse to sell it to people for peanuts to avoid it going to the wrong person.I would much rather keep it and be buried sat on it than let it go and fall into the wrong hands.I am sure you fellow older bike fans will appreciate my sentiments when I say that.
Happy pedalling Pete.

Forgot to say the marks you can see on the rear hub are the remains of the old grease and are not rust.Chrome on hub is as good as you will ever find.

Due to the amount of interest and enquiries etc about the bike I ought to point out that the bike is located in the United Kingdom (England) so please bear in mind the cost of shipping etc if you are interested in the bike.
Thanks and happy xmas Pete.
