    Sunday show and tell 5-16- 21!

    O.k. I think that officially takes over the term "cheese-grater rack"--looks just like the 4-sided ones with handle up top!

    Can anyone help identify my Huffy?

    Alvey, I doubt your derailleur is destroyed, but it definitely needs to move! If you don't know, that hook part with the slot is called the derailleur hanger and the slot belongs around your rear axle , held by the nut. There are plenty of pics, on the web that show what that should look like as...

    Trojan origins

    the two numbers out to the right are the date of build( to me it looks like 51). I think this style of serial number, with the date, started in '52 and continued through '56--so if that is a "1" after the 5 then you have an outlier. There should be a big "C" with a "W" inside even more to the...

    Sold Post war CWC boys frame

    I agree, '47. I do believe prewar bikes had dropstand ears. Also It has been established(I think) the the "cw" stamping started in 1947. Ihave read somewhere that it started late in '47, but your B serial would suggest otherwise. I have my own feeling that "A" serials were from the tail of...

    Trojan origins

    BILLYTHEKID....Very original looking war or immediately-post-war bike by Cleveland Welding Co. (CWC). Rims are correct for the bike which means hubs are most likely also. Given the time frame in which this bike was built, it would not have been offered with a tank nor rear rack. The chaingaurd...

    Sunday's Show and Tell ...4/25/21

    Nothing bike related this week, but I did pull this out of a crusty old shop/shed on Saturday. Now to decide: do I do some blacksmithing or get a longer hose and go sponge diving? (sorry for fuzzy picture--time for new camera)

    Trojan origins

    Ramses was another popular brand of bikes or condoms? With 88-103 kids the condoms were a commercial failure. 1292-1190 would have been the same time period in which the Trojan war is thought to have happened----in modern-day Turkey.

    A Sears Austrian built 10 speed

    If you're going this route, save yourself some money and buy a big can of NAPTHA,. That's what Ronson lighter fluid is(has something added to improve odor) The can of naptha will say "VM&P NAPTHA" (varnish maker's and painter's)

    '80s Unknown Raleigh

    another clue to low-mid range---"overshift" guard on chainset.

    1939 hoffman moped..

    fairly similar to this 50s Hercules in this pic==also a german company that used JLO engines(though think this one is a Sachs). Both of these German machines are pretty similar to the James (Francis Barnett too) Clockwork Mouse of English/ ww2 fame. I have nothing to go on but gut, I think you...

    First (prewar) bike..... Finally

    They didn't come with that thing either

    First (prewar) bike..... Finally

    Is it high pitched and rotational-meaning it occurs consistently to the rotation of your feet? Get going and pedal with just one foot, do the same with the other-the change in force on the crank might help isolate it as a bb problem. Remember too, as you pedal, your ass rocks back-and-forth be...

    Sold 70's Schwinn Giraffe Unicycle- 20" Tire

    As a kid, I used to get everywhere on my unicycle. It was a Regular Schwinn (with 20 inch wheel). I used to stop at the schwinn shop(Iowa City) and ogle the giraffe they had there--and you're right in the early - mid '70s they were $100. If I were near you, I'd buy it in a second---I'm 57, so 3...
