| Looking for a very nice tank for a Schwinn jaguar.1963 jag with coppertone paint.Chrome and paint must be excellent.Also working horn needed for same bike.Thanks for any help.|
| I have 2 vintage adult trikes & am trying to find info. (1) Sears & Roebuck "Free Spirit" with basket and (2) American Beauty "Custom Deluxe" with odometer and basket. My searches have yeilded no results... any idea on approx value, etc?|
| There are American Beauty headbadges on the Jim Langley site - one says Schwinn Built - these were apparently marketed by Columbus Cycle Company. Anything on yours to associate it with Columbus? or Schwinn? Look at the bolt heads, the pedal caps, etc for S or AS logos. If it's Schwinn built that will give it some value.|
I suspect there is a niche market for trikes. The Free Spirit name originated in the late sixties (go figure) and ordinarily connotes low-cost mass market bikes, but the trike might be an exception. Any chance we can see pictures? Send me pics if you can, please.
| Hi, Thought you might like to know about a new online bicycle auction site. Like ebay, but for bicycles and at a fraction of the cost to sell. |
| Falcon San Remo Seems mostly original. See pictures on Craigs list Washigton DC $300 please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 703 477 1099. ( email link is wrong) thanks, Rob.|
| I JUST RECEIVED A REPLICA OF A 1952 COLUMBIA 5 STAR SUPERB. FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD THIS WAS MADE IN 1986 WITH THE ORIGINAL CASTS OF COLUMBIA BIKES. THIS WAS DONATED TO ME FOR A CHARITY EVENT I'M HOLDING SOON. THIS BIKE IS STILL IN THE ORIGINAL BOX AND HAS NEVER BEEN ASSEMBLED OR EVEN OPENED. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYONE HAD AN IDEA ON A FAIR PRICE FOR THIS BIKE. I'D APPRECIATE ANY HELP.THANK YOU.|
| I would think about the costs involved in building a nice cruiser from scratch/restoration. Bicycle people know the work involved. I wouldn't go under $500.|
