Krate models that had a stick shifter show up on ebay all the time. Some that are near perfect or perfect condition go for big bucks, some are sh*tty condition that go for a reasonable price. >: )

MISC:   Antiques Roadshow FYI Bicycle Segment posted by: Kurt K. on 3/3/2005 at 2:09:33 AM
Seems like Antiques Roadshow has thrown a rather unfair curveball with Vinny.

Of course, the show's highlights make note of the "19th-century antiques to 1960s classics" they will be covering...even if the only examples of a post-1920's bike is composed of a two-second clip of a ballooner and a Lemon Peeler Krate pedaling by.

Mention of Krate and ballooner bikes consisted of a quick, sarcastic nod towards the flashy appearance of them (So what? Highwheelers are just as laughable at), rather, the Highwheelers successfully secured the rather pitiful time they allowed on the show for the bicycle segment.

That's not the end of it though - the show featured absolutely no sign of our good friend Vinny, the man who brings us this great site. Perhaps they preferred the fancy title of this other fellow Dave, being a top member of the 'Wheelmen's Association.' Don't get me wrong, I'm sure this Dave is a fine fellow, but it's a rather slap in the face to Vinny, regardless. The least the Roadshow could have done was contact Vinny to note that his two hours of work would be notably absent from the show, and not to expect anything on March 2nd.

Ah, well, it was probably all in favor of squeezing more time in to exhibit the works of "eccentric illustrator" (read: "cuckoo lunatic") Edward "Gory" Gorey. Guess this is what to expect from the idiots in the TV world - they know the general public will be just as happy watching the inferior as they would the superior.

Just my two cents. I may throw a nickel in if I find I forgot to rant on a few other points of this disgrace.


P.S.: At least we won't have to worry about losing our coveted flea-market and thrift shop finds.

yeah and I'm sure the stupid pink and white vase with the fat chicks painted on got about 10 minutes of the show and ended up being valued at $9,000....thats why I hate the roadshow, some guitar was on there, its worth like $50,000, now that means EVERY guitar out there is AUTOMATICLY worth $50,000!!!
I go to junk shops and this is all I hear "but, this bike that looks nothing at all like what was on antiques road show is worth $7,000"

I say we get legal action against this cheesy show so the proper people get credit and the whole show be about bikes!
sorry, thats just my attitude, and I'm sure some will agree, lol.

Yeah, where were the bikes that people living today would have actually seen and ridden? I was hoping to see some art deco bikes and Krates and maybe a classic three-speed or something. Instead it was just fancy antique high wheelers and such. Hey, those antiques are out of my league! Show me something I might find at a yard sale or some bikes I remember from when I was a kid!

We're still knocked back on our heels here at OldRoads.

It took time, money and effort to bring a load of correct, clean examples of bicycles from the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s to the filming of the show back in September.

I really thought we were on the right track by bringing bicycles of those eras. We chose period cycles which represent cycling in America in those decades - bikes you'd own and you'd see on the bike rack at school or you'd ride while delivering newspapers; bikes you'd see downtown or at your neighbor's house.

After spending 2+ hours talking about the bikes with the show's host on camera, I had no doubt the cycles and I would be on the program. My only question was for how long and would it seem too detailed or too pedantic. You may have seen the 1937 Sterling or the 1969 Schwinn Sting-Ray Lemon Peeler being ridden by the host at the intro to the show. That was our only aired contribution to the program.

The Roadshow go in touch with us on Friday to say the bicycle segment was split into 2 pieces. The 1930s to 1960s segment, our segment, will air this summer. Right now the date is 13-July but it could change.

When it gets close we'll post something here...
