WANTED:   Strumey-Archer Wheel 3spd posted by: Rob on 6/1/2007 at 9:20:49 PM
I'm looking for a Strumey-Archer wheel for a 1964 Columbia 3spd bike that was damaged in shipping. The chain broke off the hub. I figured it may be easier to get the whole wheel instead of just the hub due to the cost of having someone restitch the spokes. I'll gladly take suggestions!
Thanks Rob

Recently someone else had a similar problem and it was discussed in length on the Schwinn restoration forum. There were many ways suggested to remove the broken part. If you aren't aware, there is a little rod with a threaded end attached to the chain inside the axle. You just need to get ahold of the end of the chain and turn it counterclockwise to back it out of the hub. You might do a search on the Schwinn site for the methods discussed. Good luck.

I have seen several of the rods with the chains on ebay lately brand new for $10 and less.

Check your local bike repair shop first -- mine still sells the little shift rods and chains for three-speed hubs for $1.50.

I have a maybe 80s era Columbia I found in the trash and am parting out, rear Sturmey archer hub says TCW-III on it, the shifter was broke at handlebar so I can't test, but you could have whole wheel (seems true and ok, 26") for shipping and maybe a little to cover time to get it off and towards ya. I'm in RI. Catch me directly at scoutout@gmail.com

Please help. I have 3 Schwinn bicycles that I am selling at a yard sale. They are all in o.k. shape. I need a price on the Lil' Miss. I can find nothing about it. Also I have 2 original owners manuals. I'm sure they are worth something, but what??? Please help me so that I'm not taken advantage of. If you have suggestions on the Sting Ray "Fair Lady" price, or the "Hollywood", please feel free to let me know about those as well. Thanks so much!!! Sincerely,

I am cleaning up an old Viscount race bike. The front fork is a replacement from the "Death" fork that may have originally come on the bike that was aluminium. I have no idea the market for the bike. The paint is pretty good. Lambert chainring, brake levers, campy front derailer, SunTour rear derailer... Any help in value or interested parties please respond. Thankyou

I assume you have found the information on Sheldon's site: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/lambert.html. If you scroll to the bottom of the page you will see the special high healed toe clip option that came on the bike. I remember it being critical to have the original cranks but don't remember why. It made a nice 22 pound bike, very light for the price and vintage. Consumer picked the cheaper model as their best buy.

Ebay item!! 300116466281 No Reserve $1.00 opening bid 1 day auction!!!!!!

Made in England

Matching vintage men and women's Raleigh Sport bikes. Great condition. Women's bike can be ridden today. Men's bike just needs front tire fixed, looks like it needs a can of fix-a-flat or maybe a new inner-tube? Slight rust on handlebars and very small scratches. Seat to ground measures 35" at lowest setting. These are so much fun to ride.

If not interested in buying, but know anything about these bikes please drop me an email. I’d love to learn more about them.

Again, you might tell the "English Roadsters" discussion forum about this.
