AGE / VALUE:   Help - Find Serial Number Schwinn posted by: William Hay on 4/27/2001 at 10:40:57 PM
Hi, Thank you in advance. I just scored a wonderful Schwinn Sting-Ray Deluxe! I think it is a 64 or 65,
has Sting-Ray Whitewall on back, Westwind on front, ect....
I have looked all over for the serial number, all I can find is a 4 on each side of the lower rear tubes.
I don't know the terminology, as far as "head tube" and such. I plead guilty...I am stupid...can someone help me!!!

Look on the frame, just above where the rear wheel attaches on the "kickstand" side. You may have to remove the sissy bar to get a good look. If it is 1964, the second figure will be a "4." If 1965, it will be an "A."

AGE / VALUE:   old Japanese bike posted by: Kelly Aylward on 4/27/2001 at 6:49:12 AM
My father recently purchased an old Japanese bicycle. It has the name MEIHATU on it, along with KOFU(which is a city) too many details to write here, but it is believed to be from the '30s-40s era. If you have any sources of info on vintage Japanese bikes, please advise.
Thank you,

I saw a Japanese bike website a while back. Might be a starting point.

MISC:   Trelleborg Raleigh Chopper tires posted by: ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 4/21/2001 at 10:38:34 AM
I was wondering if these is any call for these tires. Trelleborg 20 X 2.125 slick off brand for Raleigh Chopper These do not have the red stripe. what about are they worth?

   RE:MISC:   Trelleborg Raleigh Chopper tires posted by ChristopherRobin2@starmail.com on 4/23/2001 at 9:35:34 AM
Carlisle tires and Trelleborg, were good replacement tires but only Genuine Raleigh with the red stripe will do.
