MISC:   Banana Seat Bike Newsletter - "The Ape-Hanger" posted by: "White Chubbie" on 12/20/2005 at 6:28:42 PM
I'm assembling the first issue of "The Ape-Hanger", a newsletter for all things banana seat. This first issue will be free and we will see how interest is in future issues to gauge expenses and possibly begin charging for ads, postage or membership in the future. My intent is to put out an electronic version, emailed to recipients as either a PowerPoint presentation file or as JPG files as well as a limited paper edition mailed to those unfortunates without computer skills or access. This should keep costs down. I’m searching for guest columnists to provide input into the newsletter. If you’ve got some good information, a cool story, pictures, or anything else you think would be interesting to other collectors, please drop me a line. Anyone submitting something that is used in an issue (other than ads) will automatically get their issue for free, regardless of method of transmission (electronic or paper) If you'd like to be on the list of subscribers for this first issue, drop me an email at:
Be sure to let me know how you'd like to receive the newsletter (electronic format (Powerpoint or JPG) or paper, mailed to you). Some things I'd love to include:

For Sale
Wanted to Buy
For Trade
Services Offered
All types of banana seat bikes
Tell us your cool stories involving banana seat bikes
Serial number charts
All brands
All Brand Information
Paint colors offered by year

You get the idea.....This newsletter will cover ALL BRANDS, ALL STYLES, like I said ALL THINGS BANANA SEAT.

I live in Cape Town, South Africa. I am looking for a Western Flyer Mean Machine. I dont know if they were released overseas under the same name. It had a long motorbike type seat with platic tank and looked like a motorbike. Can anyone help?
i shall post a picture soon.

make that a "plastic" tank. It also had shocks. You can view the bike on this link.
I am looking for details on when it was first produced and how long it was in production. The picture i found on the internet refers to the bike as a 58 Rampar. Here we knew them as Mean Machine's by Western Flyer...round abouts the early 80's
