    What is a vintage mountain bike

    I would like to say that the bikes should be presented by era, that is: Klunkers - the first mountain bikes, whether fairly original or modified Steel lugged/fillet brazed frame bikes - no suspension, geared, 26" or 650B wheels Steel welded frame bikes - no suspension, geared, mostly 26" wheels...

    anyone know about this J.C. HIGGINS Barn find

    It is a 3-speed (see the pulley on the top tube), but the brakes, levers, shifter, cables, and such are gone. I would bet the the 3-speed hub still functions, or will after some cleaning. The hub was licensed from Sturmey Archer most likely.

    1986 Cimarron

    Update on the Cimarron: The bikeforums member mountaindave who sent me the stem, located the SunTour logo button in his parts stash and sent it to me.

    Can anyone i.d. this old chrome MB?

    I agree that it is a Ross. A Schwinn would have had a badge (drilled head tube).

    I drove by the old Torrington Company factory today...

    It is sad to see a company like Torrington decline. I have watched my very small hometown waste away over the years. The only commercial things left are a post office and a convenience store.

    Brass bearings and bicycles

    I'm going back to my childhood here, but I have no doubt that I would have used BBs as bearings. With proper grease who knows how long they would last.

    Carlton Competition

    The paint scheme looks like a Raleigh Gran(d) Sport(s). Carlton built the Super Course AFAIK. Did they also build the Gran(d) Sport(s)?

    1950's Hawthorn Step Through

    Saw this on Delaware CL. I don't know if it is 1950's, but it looks pretty clean and the price seems decent. It is not my type of bike, but I thought I would post it. https://delaware.craigslist.org/bik/d/rehoboth-beach-1950s-montgomery-wards/7009042477.html

    Would you be a Repack rider?
