Hi! I am in Southern Indiana and have a big garage full of old bicycles (Schwinn, Huffy, Sierra, Weinmann, Sears, Columbia) and bicycle parts - some new, some old. This all belonged to a man who died - he had run this shop for years and years. This would be a pick-up sale only (no shipping). If anyone out there is interested, please contact me as they can be purchased very reasonably. There is a big metal cabinet with drawers also that is full of parts.

MISC:   What year? posted by: Dick Carlson on 2/14/2006 at 10:41:54 PM
I am restoring a Whizzer motorcycle=24" Schwinn it has a brass plaque on the front that says Schwinn I was told it was 1948 it has a deluxe front end and the serial numbers on the bottom of the frame read 1874 any idea what bike this is or a way for me to find out. Bike came from NY
Any help would be appreciated.


   RE:MISC:   What year? posted by rod on 2/16/2006 at 9:10:59 PM
I believe Whizzers were built as late as 1951; but to be sure, click on to the Schwinn serial # chart on this site. Good luck!

WANTED:   Looking for replacement reflector decals posted by: Towser on 2/12/2006 at 5:34:23 AM
I've just cleaned up an old (60's?) AMF Roadmaster Legend and am looking to replace the shiny silver decals which were located on either side of the rear tire
I'd be glad to use anything that'd be suitable and just cut it to shape
Any advice?

   RE:WANTED: Looking for replacement reflector decals posted by scott on 2/19/2006 at 4:23:00 AM
I dont know if this will help or not but there is a company called bare metal foil that makes a chrome adhesive foil that is used for trim on models , it is very thin material available in hobby shops) , or you could try chrome, polished metal duct tape wich is thick and kinda hard to contour , It can also be hard to find,
If what you need is reflectorised you could try a craft store (I havent seen it but Id bet that it was made)
hope this helps

MISC:   Anyone ever heard of a Scheuer "President" Bicycle posted by: kilroy75633 on 2/11/2006 at 7:09:30 PM
I work at a garbage transfer station.Some kids were cleaning out their uncles house (he passed away).They had this little girls bicycle and bunch of other junk to throw away.I got the bike..Its a "President" bicycle it says "President" on the chain guard and on the tank.On the head badge it says design by SCHEUER.The two tone seat has a big "S" on it.It looks like a cruiser, but everything is small even the seat.It has 20" tires.The paint is faded.The bike is great except on the front chrome fender.It looks like something mounted on it.The rear reflector is still on the back.Does anyone know any info on this bike.It looks old because it has a tank on it, and the chain guard is big and elaborate with a chrome rack in the back over the fender.Any help would be appreciated.Because I can't find out anything on it.

   RE:MISC: Anyone ever heard of a Scheuer posted by scott on 2/19/2006 at 4:29:17 AM
somewhere or other in my pile of bikes i have one of these , I thought that my rear rack and fenders are the same color as the bike , I dont know anything about it other than what you are missing on the front fender is a light (or at least it is on mine)Im thinking that mine is from the early 60's judging from the cottered cranks. Hope this is of some help to you

FOR SALE:   Three (3) Vintage Schwinns, one (1) Elgin posted by: Ted Mills on 2/11/2006 at 5:32:08 PM
I have three Schwinn bicycles, completely restored to include "parade" chrome, Poly-Urethane pinstripe paint and all original parts for sale. They are: 1938 Elgin ladies "Windcruiser", 1949 springer front Schwinn, 1953 cruiser with "Delta Rocket-Ray" headlamp (functional), and a 1962 2 speed "kick-back" rear hub half tank. I do not really know what they are worth. I know they all ride exceptionally nicely and they were a "labor of love" to rebuild. Now that I am nearing my 60's, I think it's about time I put them on the market. I have both "before and after" pictures of each if anyone is interested. I currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This bike is in very good condition. It does have many scratches in the paint, but the existing paint is still glossy. It rides very smooth but would benefit from a restoration.All original parts intact, except seat. There are two rear license/bike plates. One from Oregon and one from Sacramento.
$350 or OBO not including shipping.
