    Thank goodness for heavyweights.

    According to the 61 catalog, no. Coaster, 2-speed and 3-speed were available. For what it's worth, my 61 Speedster is also red band 2-speed.

    Relacing wheels

    Cross four, right?

    Huffy "star world"

    That's pure late 70s all right. :D I doubt the high sissy bar came with it though. IIRC you couldn't get those anymore by the time Star Wars came out. I'm thinking the wheelie bar's origins may involve golf.

    Royce union mystic information

    It looks Chinese, and between 1 and 20 years old. The mixte-ish frame on a mountian bike is an interesting touch. IMHO you would not make any money on a flip of this. Most useful improvement in the beginning would probably be the gearing (freewheel, derailleur, shifter, cable). I wouldn't...

    Prewar Ranger /Schwinn

    Wasn't there just a thread about this bicycle the other day? Maybe it just looks real similar. Looks like a good find! I think it's 1940. Chainguard is aftermarket, and I believe crank and bottom bracket are not Schwinn.

    Huffy Adjustable Mono-Shock BMX

    All-Pro! I missed that the first time around. Yes, that is K-Mart. Huffy-built for sure.

    20$ pile…. How did i do? And what is it?

    The chain guard is 50s Huffy. I bought a chainguard like that. https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/1953-huffy-24-model-250-cleanup.191917/ I don't recall what I paid. Judging by the position the bracket is welded on yours, I think you probably have 24 inch parts there. As others have pointed out...

    Year of Huffy Adjustable Mono-Shock?

    HC up on the neck makes it a Celina, Ohio built Huffy. I am having a bit of trouble reading the dropout, but C7(?)267 should be 1977, and I can believe it looking at the bike. (?)26 is the julian day, and if you can see the poorly stamped digit, that can be looked up.

    1962 American Kingsize

    I understand why you want more rise, but I don't like the way taller bars look so I am afraid I won't be much help. I am not sure boy scouts would be any taller than what you have (but they would look great!). Some steerhorns would also look great, but probably wouldn't gain you anything in...

    Was given an antique Schwinn and don’t know where to start

    That cannot possibly be correct. It is a guessing game to some extent, especially for bikes built before the war, but the information in the Schwinn serial threads right here on the CABE are as good as it gets. This frame is prewar due to it's lack of dropouts. The fork is likely prewar too...

    Was given an antique Schwinn and don’t know where to start

    Not 1953. Did you get a picture of your H80232 serial? Sometimes the font and the way and where it was stamped mean more than the number itself. I am not that well informed, but some of the people around here will really surprise you with how much they know. Based on my admittedly limited...

    Huffy Customliner questions

    7H is 1957. It looks a lot like slightly earlier Huffys, especially the tank. I guess they just kept making it. It probably had some graphics of an airplane or racecar or something originally. Customliner is a fancy one, Mainliner gets less goodies. I like it!

    Arnold Schwinn Packard Serial Number Help

    Isn't that front rim a painted Lobdell? It's hard to tell because I guess they made some S2 without knurling early on. It looks a bit rounded for an S2.

    Arnold Schwinn Packard Serial Number Help

    Yes very early postwar, right at the spot where serial numbers seem to be the least known. Fork, fenders, crank and chainwheel are not Schwinn. I couldn't see enough of the hubs and rims to tell about those. With mainly the frame to go from, and being in that early postwar era, it is going to be...

    What modern wheels might work on this Shelby?

    Measuring from the outside edge of the rim will be misleading. No tires ever measured that way. Modern tires like 559 (or 571 or whatever) measure at the bottom of the bead on the tire, so maybe not quite the bottom of the rim, but definitely not the outer edge. Old single tube tires were...
