| We have an old Road King bicycle previously owned by my great uncle in Nova Scotia. |
The only problem is the inner tubes - 28" X 1 1/2". The tubes were Bulldog brand, made in Canada.
Any source for these tubes, and any information on Road King Bicycles in general would be appreciated.

| You can use 27 X 1 1/5 ten speed tubes in a pinch. That's what I use in my 28 inch tires when I need a replacement.|
| The Canadian size 28" tires use 700c tubes. They are available at most bike shops. You should ask for tubes for 700c x 38 or 40 size. |
| Right- I've seen European tires, Belgian I think, on a Peugeot, that were marked both 28" and 700C, ISO 622mm. But the roadster 28" tires are 700B, 635mm. Further irony: the 27 inch size falls between the two.|
| Road King bikes used the Canadian size, 700c or 622, not the British size 635. 700c tubes will fit. |
| Get ready for spring with a nice rider or project. I have plenty of both. Link to bikes below. You might have to cut and paste the link. Prices do not include shipping. Shipping around 50 to 75 dollars per bike depending on shipping area. USA and Canada only please. Canada shipping will be higher. Peace, Marc|

| I recently came into the possession of an antique Monark Silver King motor bike. I have been searhing online for info but stil cannot find a picture that matches my bike and therefore have no idea what year or exact model it is. I know that it is a 50's model and learned from the previous owner that it used to have an engine (which was stolen) Is this bike worth anything? I would love to restore it but am afraid that I will never be able to find an original motor. Also, will I kill any value by rechroming, ot a repaint? I'm anxious to get going--can anyone help? Thanks. I'll try to post pics soon.|
| Post your e-mail address and I,ll send you some "supertwin" pictures. If its a supertwin frame they were made from 49-54. Should have a model number plate under the crank. Engines pop up every once in a while on e-bay since they were used on other things too, like lawnmowers. Power products built the engines for Monark.|
| There's one on e-bay right now under Monark. The wrong year is given in the ad.|
