| HI THERE OLDROADS! |
I HAVE A QUESTION, HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE BEFORE YOU ADD A PICTURE THAT I SEND TO YOUR PICTURE GALLERY?
I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE IT UP THERE.......LOL
| We linked in a bunch of pictures over the weekend (we review them and manually link them into the Picture Database).|
If your pix were in .GIF or .JPG format, they're in the database now.
And thanks for your contribution.

| I picked up my first boy's Stingray today, a Fastback 5spd. thumbshift. It's kinda rough but free, it's missing the original fork and wheel(replaced with an S2 rim/ WF fork) and brake cables. This was the last year for the Fastback but was it the only year for the 5spd. thumbshift? Does the thumbshift make it more or less collectible? |
I also own a WF BuzzBike, Renegade, an WF wedge style frame bike(?) and a Westpoint Aerobee along with a '67 &'74 Schwinn fairlady's. But the boy's Stingray bike has been elusive for me to find until now.
|The thumbshift does make it less valuable.. The stick shift on ebay will sell between 60-80 dollars.. Plus the stick shift is more eye appealing.. but the thumbshift fastbacks are still quite valuable.|
|Thank's wade, I was aware of the stick's but not the 5spd. thumb's, was '76 the only year for 5spd. thumbshift?|
|i believe 73' was the last year for stick shift on the fastbacks due to safety reasons|
|I'm looking to buy an old Cheetah pedal bike/car from the 1970s!! I used to ride one when I was a kid and LOVED IT!! There was nothing faster and more cool at the time! I want to buy it so my own kids can experience it!! If anyone knows where I can find one please, please, please, let me know. I grew up in Los Angeles California in the San Fernando Valley and there were two kids on our street who had one besides me and we're all looking for one! We're 34 now!! Time flies.|
| What size is the spokes that the Schwinn Sting Ray and Krate bikes take?|
The front wheel with the drum hub and the front wheel with the plain front hub?
I need the exact sizes. Same thing for the rear wheel.
What are the spoke sizes for the Rays and Krates?
Long or short nipples?
Thank You very much
| here you go........front rim w/expander hub- 4-3/16,part#83 056|
standard reg hub--- 5-3/4 part#83 073........rear---7-9/16,part#83 109. i hope this helps you out.
| Thanks a lot!|
You helped me a lot!
| What is the exact measurements of the spokes for the Raleigh Chopper bike?|
The size for the front wheel? and the size for the rear wheel?
Are the nipples long or short?
I am sorting out spokes and trying to make sense of what size goes to what make and type of bicycle
Thanks a lot
| 16" x 2.0" front wheel|
20 x 2.125 rear.
| Thanks, but I was asking for the exact length of the spokes in inches or in millimeters. I have spokes that I am trying to sort out as to what size fits what.|
For example, this box I have here is marked 9 5/8
What size wheel does that go in?
| 3 speed rear 7 9/32 36 of them|
fronts 5 1/2 inch 28 of them
5/10 speed rear 7 7/16 18 on the left
7 17/32 18 on the right

|hello, i dont know how much this bike is worth, but im guessing not alot. this is a schwinn 1971 greay ghost. there is no scratches, no rust, looks brand new. you would swear that its brand new. since its so old, i dont think its worth much. i want to sell it for $20.00. plz email me|
You got mail. I certainly will buy it!
|You and hundred other people would buy it.|
| Do not sell that bike right now. Learn what these go for and then put it up on e- bay.|
These sell for over $1000.00!
They are rare and sought after.
Look under complete auctions on e- bay type in Schwinn Krate series Grey Ghost and see what these go for.
These days that barely buys you a cup of coffee!
|Forgot to ask, Where did you get it?|
|This may be a scam to farm e-mail addresses.|
|I doubt "bobby" exists.|
| when i was at the local schwinn dealer he was taking orders on a repop grey ghost. at vegas convention other week schwinn/pacific had a prototype. dealer says orders must be placed with factory by nov.12th and only what was ordered will be produced with delivery on april 1st. my price was 300 plus tax so i ordered 1 and gave a deposit.|
they are testing the waters with this and there is no
inventory on this one. bill

| I would like to buy a complete AMF manufactured Wheelie bike or frame with guard. These were also sold thru Western Flyer stores as a 2+1 Skeeter. Must have a wheelie wheel built into extended frame. Please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Yes, I know they are hard to find. Thanks.|

i have a Raleigh Fireball banana seat bike in perfect condition
but i can't find any info on it
is it worth anything or is it good for the garbage?
i also have a 3 speed Banditos banana seat bike and again in perfect condition
|Don't throw the seat away. Chances are someone here or on the other bicycle forums and collector areas will want that seat for a restoration or even a custom bike. And there's always (ugh) Ebay.|
| Max,the Fireball is a sought after bike,unfortunatelly its only sought after by a few of us in England :(|
They seem pretty cheap over there. Boy I wish I was "over there" !
The full story, if you want to read it, is on www.raleighchopper.info in the history section.
| Max, www.nemusclebikes.com has a 2 very nice ones as well as a few Rodeo bikes (2 NOS). These were great bikes to ride and will become more valuable when they are "discovered".|
|I have a Murray F 5 Eliminator Bicycle. I would like to know the year and value. I want to sell this bike. Thanks, Randy.|
|Check ebay or just buy a price guide.|

| Hi im looking for a chaingard for a amf AeroBee Avenger 5 as well as crankset and other parts. |
|Hi. I have an Aerobee too. I didn't think there were many left. I wanted to write to express my feelings that someone is interested in more than just the stingray muscle bikes for restoring. I specialize in restoring non-schwinn bannana bikes.|
| do you know where i can find parts? i need decals !!!!!!|
I picked this thing up at a garage sale for $30. Just need to finish restoring it.
| need rear krate 'slik' 20X1.25 WIDE TREAD 8 dot|
