    Christmas Season Bicycle Ads

    Not sure if this has already been posted but found it in my stash today.

    Schwinn Hornet & Tornado Rare Find in Oklahoma had to have them

    Nice. Even has the original gas cap. Mine is below. It was missing the gas cap so I designed one from pictures using CAD software and then ran the model on a rapid prototyping machine. I've taken this to a few swaps and use it as my swap bike. Rides fantastic.

    Post pics of your 20" oldschool bmx bikes

    Same as above...some I still have, some I've passed along to a new owner.

    Primrose Cycle Company

    So I was antique shopping in a nearby small town and discovered the below head badge in a locked case. The owner of the store gave me all the info he had on the manufacturer which wasn't much and also let me take the below picts. He said it was late 1800's or early 1900's. The badge has spent...

    Let’s see some late 70’s/early 80’s Cruisers and Spitfires

    I bought it at an online auction set up like that. The original owner had several options added at a Louisville Schwinn shop probably when bought new. I stripped everything off to the way it sits today.

    Let’s see some late 70’s/early 80’s Cruisers and Spitfires

    Finished these two this summer. '81 and '86 Giant built. The '86 is now my wife's favorite ride...cushy seat.

    Spaceliner Lens

    Started my Spaceliner winter project and ran into an issue right off the bat. The previous owner saw fit to put these stickers on the nose of the tank which isn't the problem. After putting the stickers on they decided to coat them with what appears to be shellac. I got most of the thick stuff...

    Withdrawn 1941 Elgin Curve Bar - Delivery Memory Lane

    Wheels re-laced. All bearings re-packed. Seat, pedals, grips not original. Original fenders included. Boiled linseed oil on most parts. Carlisle lightning darts from the 1980's, ridable but should probably be replaced. Delivery to Memory Lane Friday only, otherwise pickup in NE Indiana.

    JC Higgins Question

    Is this a repaint or did these come in solid colors? I'm leaning toward repaint.

    Front Hub Question

    I thought I had once read an article (maybe on the CABE) that bearings in a retainer worked better, lasted longer than bearings not in a retainer. It sort of makes sense that the retainer bearings would not have the opportunity to grind on each other since they are captured. And yes...at least...

    Front Hub Question

    I believe this bike was custom built by a Schwinn shop in Louisville. The rear coaster was replaced with the 5 speed and a rear caliper brake. It also had added fenders and a speedo. I stripped all of that off and started the re-build. One of the front hub cones is shot which got me wondering if...

    Front Hub Question

    The front hub is stamped "Schwinn Approved Made in the USA".

    1986 Schwinn Predator Streetwise

    Picked this up on an online auction. I think these were only '85 and '86. Future project.

    Front Hub Question

    Can someone verify for me that these are the correct parts for a front hub on a Deluxe Cruiser?
