I got my hands on a "muscle" bike this weekend and can't find any information on it what-so-ever. The stickers on it say Mossberg, Little Falls, NY. The reflectors are stamped 1973. It's a copper/gold color, 3 speed with a slick on the back.

Was Mossberg a local department store or hardware store?
It could be a re-badged Columbia, Murray. Huffy, etc, badged for a store.

From what I read Mossberg was a company that did bikes briefly...then did guns? I can't find a value for the bike anywhere...

I just picked one up at St. Vinnies. It is a 3 speed all original and the reflectors are stamped 73. It cost $8.00.
I can't find any info on line either. Still searching...

I need some help in identifying the age and other information on a bike im restoring. im new to vintage bikes. the chain guard says "Ryder Super 40'' Drive". this is a muscle bike, looking like an older sting ray. many of the parts are form "Troxel, Moscow Tenn." If anyone knows the history of this bike i would really appreciate it. the serial number reads 6H379976. thanks!!!

MISC:   Mohawk Bikes? posted by: Rich on 5/30/2006 at 5:58:03 AM

I'm trying to find any information on a bike I had as a kid in the early to mid 1970's. I'm not 100% sure of the brand name, but I think it was a "Mohawk." Here's what I remember:It was similar to a Raleigh Chopper, but with more of a Schwinn Stingray type frame. It was blue, 3 speed, with the shifter mounted on the middle of the frame (Exactly what I wanted!) Slick rear tire, banana seat, Sissy bars. It had a picture of an Indian Chief on the chainguard. This bike was a birthday present that my Dad bought me at the Emporium department store at the Almaden Fashion Plaza in San Jose, California. Sadly this bike was stolen from my garage while my Mom drove me to school.............She left the garage door open! I only had this bike for about 3 months, but I still remember it fondly, and miss it. If anyone has any idea what brand, or type of bike I'm talking about, and has ANY information or pics I would GREATLY appreciate hearing from you.

It`s an AMF Prestige,I have a gold one, single speed though

It was not an AMF. I had an orange single speed Mohawk. It had the Banana Seat, Black pin stripes, the Ape Hangers, and a double top tube. I probably got in in 76 or 77 in Indiana. Interestingly enough, I moved to San Jose in 1980, where I tried to convert it to a BMX and painted it Candy Apple Blue. And spent a lot of time drooling over the bikes at the bike shop next to Mellow McGee's Ice Cream shop.

Just found this.

It's three speed adult bikes, but check the chain guard.

AGE / VALUE:   Ross Stingray Style Bike posted by: Alissa on 5/30/2006 at 4:37:49 AM
I recieved a free ross bike. I have read up about the big contraversies with this company and am just wanting more info about it. Also, I am very new to Stingrays and It needs to have the main crank replaced and bearing, so im curious if there is a good place online to buy these types of things and how do i know if they will fit this bike. I have seen a lot of schwinn parts but none for ross. additionally, from what it sounds like it would be better to replace with something after market anyways. Im excited for this new project and who can beat free. (it also came with a shorter sissy bar and seat.)
