that link worked for me. I am unaware of any organized interest in collecting postwar/pre-stingray children's bikes, and would appreciate hearing from, or about, such collectors. Value is determined by the buyer; if you auction it, it might help to list it as a toy as well as as a bicycle IMO. You could check with Copake or other auctioneers for an opinion.

WANTED:Sturmey archer TF 2 speed freewheel driver posted by: nikos on 12/19/2007 at 6:48:36 PM
Here's a way out there request. Anyone have the special freewheel that can slide on the driver instead of the fixed sprocket? The T/TF hub supposedly had this option of fixed/free if you had the freewheel addition for the driver.

I also read about it on after someone told me about the freewheel option.

And if you have it, would you want to part with it? I have a TF with the barrel shifter and want the freewheel option. I also might be willing to trade my fixed TF, newly laced to a new Sun rim 26 x 1 3/8 with barrel shifter for a Sturmey AM on a nice, true rim with a shifter. Thanks for helping me find an asc axle everyone.

best, nikos

FOR SALE:Please help me determine what this is worth posted by: Joan on 12/19/2007 at 5:54:38 PM

I recently uncovered this nifty bike. It is a Columbia Torpedo - I don't know the year. I wish that I were the kind of person to restore it but I know that I am not. I wish to sell it but I have no idea how to even price it. Can anyone help me?

I have a photo of it but I can't figure out how to load it here.

FOR SALE:Atala Record Professional with Campy components posted by: Tim on 12/16/2007 at 6:03:33 PM
I have an old Atala Record Professional with Campy components.
I'm having difficulty finding a value for it.
It has original stickers but some frame rust.
Offers are welcome. If I ride it I will probably beat on it more than it deserves so I am interested in parting with it.

I am replying about these derailleurs. Do you have a list of what they are. And a price for all of them?
