I am looking to purchase
1. the "Bat Wing" head light
2. the "Jeweled" canteen
3. the chain guard

The bicycle is the Color Flow. The term "Batwing" is used to describe the headlight because of its shape. It came in a headlight only version and a combination version housing a horn and light. Best bet for parts is Ebay. I may have a Batwing light (handlebar mount). Does your bike have a spring fork or truss rods?

I am searching for any information I can find on a bicycle I have owned for years, but know very little about. I do know it is a Dutch made bike, but that is where my knowledge ends. I've listed all of the markings below, as well as photos. Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated, including possible year, value, etc.

Gazelle Populair
"Silver Seal" stamped on chain guard
Serial Number GM 027257
"8" stamped into the frame under the seat
"Gazelle RJwielfabriek Dieren" on front emblem

did you find this?

From the info, it looks as though it might be a 1980, and would have been a TI relative, so I wonder whether there's any notable connection. Does it have a three speed hub? I couldn't view your photo. Would you email it to me?

Thanks, Ken. I have e-mailed some photos to you.

Hi. I was looking for a 1930's era Raleigh crank for my 28" Raleigh. Someone put a replacement crank on my bike and the original chain does not mesh smoothly with the teeth on the replacement crank. If anyone knows where I can purchase one please let me know. Thanks in advance.
