FOR SALE:   Two Schwinn 20" springer for Super Deluxe posted by: Eric on 8/28/2000 at 2:14:55 PM
Don't hesistate this won't last long. I have only two. These springers came off of two 66 Super Deluxe. These springers are hard to find. The chrome is very very good on one ($325). The other springer is in good shape too but both struss rods were painted silver. The rest of the chrome is excellent ($270). Photos are available.

   Only one left posted by Eric on 9/4/2000 at 8:24:49 PM
There is only one Schwinn Super Deluxe springer left. The springer with the painted struss is still here. Come and get it before it is gone.

I have been doing a littel research on the Canadian made CCM Mustang. Has anyone got any history on this great coaster or 3 spd stick shift bike?

AGE / VALUE:   1971 grey ghost posted by: Steve on 8/27/2000 at 6:57:42 PM
I recently read an article about how uncommon my bike was and I had no idea. I've had my grey ghost from 1971 when I paid around $100.00 at the time. I've looked it over pretty good and it has all original parts (tires, tubes, reflectors, fenders etc....) I've kept it in my parents basement for the past 20-25 years and recently re-discovered it.The seat looks great and there are some scratches from use. Anyways, I'm considering selling it, but would only do so for a very good price. If anyone is interested email me. Thanks.

FOR SALE:   Schwinn Stingray/Krate speedometer-$45 shipped posted by: Matthew on 8/26/2000 at 2:32:51 PM
Hello. I have a Schwinn Stingray/Krate speedometer that I would like to offer you. The chrome is flawless (execept for one small half centimeter size knick), no sun fade, perfect cord, and 100% clear glass. The face itself is black with "Schwinn Approved" in white on the bottom. The gold numbers are flawless, and the orange metal needle does'nt even wobble! Perfect, rust-free cable. Only thing is the driver bracket is broken (the thing that holds it to the fork). Easily fixable-$45 and it yours. Thanks.

MISC:   2 kinds of 5-speed Raleigh Choppers?? posted by: Franny on 8/26/2000 at 1:34:42 PM
I've been told there are 2 kinds of 5 speed Raleigh Choppers. Are they the Mark I and Mark II? I'm lead to believe it has something to do with shifters? Anyone?
