VINTAGE LIGHTWEIGHTS:   Raleigh Unit Production ? posted by: Drew on 7/4/2006 at 11:35:01 PM
Anyone have production figures for high end Raleigh's, International & Professional...late 1960's-early 1970's. My 1971 international has a serial number of F796, is the letter F the only indicator to date the bike?

Checkout RetroRaleigh website for more info. Don't know how many Worksop (Carlton) Raleighs were made but it was a ton. Naturally, the higher the initial price, probably less sales. Components, colors, decals, etc. can also help date bikes.

FOR SALE:   Two Schwinn bikes (1977) posted by: T.A. Read on 7/4/2006 at 10:59:03 PM
· I have two Vintage Schwinn 3 Speed Bikes, one is a Mens Speedster and the other a Ladies Breeze that I wish to sell. Sales Price is only $25.00 each. These are perfect bicycles for any Schwinn collector and/or rider.

The Speedster was purchased in December of '77 and the Breeze after that. Overall condition is good for their age, and showing normal signs of use and wear. The bikes still wheel freely, and the tires and gears move without a problem. The front brakes are in good working condition. All 3 speeds are also in good working condition. The tires are also in good shape. They still can be used as is or you can replace them.
These bikes are perfect for restoration, or use as is to have that vintage Schwinn bicycle.
I live in Memphis, Tennessee. Please drop by to see them. Contact me for additional information. Email at


AGE / VALUE:   Bianchi campione del mondo posted by: Marko on 7/3/2006 at 8:31:08 PM
I have a Bianchi campione del mondo made in the early 80's that I have been planning to sell. It is equipted with a mix of Campagnolo Nouvo record, and Grand Sport components, has original tubular racing wheels, but a crappy Trek blob saddle. Any clue what would be a good starting price? Anyone interested? I'm not looking to get rich, I just want to pass it along to someone who will like a classic retro racer.
Thanks loads,

I have a skyray red bicycle hanging in my garage. Where is the serial# located? It's in fair condition. Says Deluxe on the side. Skyray on the front. I know nothing about old bikes. Has a double basket on it and a light attached on front wheel bar. Has white handle grips and it looks like another set of curvy handlebars that either came with it or was purchased to put on it. Seat is white. Has white trim. Design on middle bar looks space oriented. Anyway.. where is the serial# and what it cost originally or now? How old is it? I'm thinking 1960?

You'll get more responses on an appropriate forum, Ms. Danyi. Most of the folks here know road racing and touring bikes.

Common places for serial numbers are the (usually left) rear dropout, the bottom bracket, the seat lug, the bottom of the head tube, and the top of the seat tube.

The hub that holds the peddles, under it is the serial#
I just got a similar sounding sky ray, and can find nothing about it. Have you?
