MISC:   Goricke??? Help posted by: Carmen on 5/22/2006 at 1:31:29 PM
I bought this 24'' Goricke at a flea market, and I haven't been able to find any info on it, or the company really. All I know is that it is German, and that the company once made mopeds. I found some new Gorickes a website, but haven't found anything on vintage. I would really like to know what it's worth, or at least how old it is. If anyone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

My aid is probably pretty lame, but the first thing I thought of; is check your item with German ebay, (ebay.de)


"Artikelnummer: 8811589635"

"Sie bieten auf ein teilbares Göricke Damenfahrrad mit 3-Gang Nabenschaltung. Diese Rarität ist in einem guten Allgemeinzustand. Der Rahmen ist zum Transport in der Mitte mittels Schnellspanner teilbar. Achtung! Die Schweißung der Hinterstreben unterhalb der Sattelstütze hat sich gelöst (siehe Foto). Das Fahrrad ist so nicht verkehrssicher zu betreiben. Ich kann es mit zwei Schweißpunkten wieder reparieren. Da ich aber davon ausgehe, dass das Fahrrad von einem sachkundigen Liebhaber ersteigert werden wird, will ich diesem eine fachmänischere Reparatur vorbehalten. Ansonsten ist das Fahrrad betriebsbereit."

This item looks a little bit similar and they seem to have other items by Goricke, looks like a motorcycle company as well.

Also, "Artikelnummer: 8811595045"

This other item is selling for a lot of $$.

I have just found an old bicycle in my barn. We purchased the house 15 years ago and have never been through that barn. Any way the plate on the neck has a plane flying downwards and it says shooting star. huffman manufacturing corp dayton ohio. Does anyone know anything about this bike?

It could be pretty valuable. Huffman preceded Huffy.
See if you can find a picture of it in the picture database here.
