Looking to ID this Monark more specifically ..... I am guessing its early 1960's based on the huffy style features and what i read in similar threads ....

Did this bike have a tank ? i.e similar to the middleweight mini tank...

I bought a '64 Columbia Torpedo from the original owner some years back, guy got it brand new from his folks when he was a kid and swears up and down he didn't change anything, down to tires..frankly he didn't come across as the type to assemble something custom for it.
Well, I discovered the...
There is something unassuming about the cheap chainguard, abbreviated front fender, enameled rims, tacked on frame bracing and sparse screening. I found that the gearing seems to be more like a 3rd gear than a direct drive. I added the torsion bars and larger saddle.
Decent paint Schwinn in complete original condition. Bike will clean up well. Enameled rims have factory pin striping. "S" seat is two tone and has a split. Great classic beach bike. Vintage ride cred. Not antique yet. Made December 12 1963! (perhaps a 64?) $250 pick up - shipping available
Began to clean and grease the 59 this past week. Replaced both wheels and added new repop WW tires. Tried to make the bad color match on the tank a bit better by compounding the paint until the chrome was partially visible. Then I added ALMOST the correct decal. I think I need to find an...
So I bought this bike for 25 bucks today. I thought it was a royal prince but the badge says royal made in the Netherlands.
I'm working on getting it rideable. Does anyone know where I can get a new gear cable for my 3 speed? The rear hub works and sounds good but the cable is trashed.
This was on consignment in our shop for a couple of months with no takers. The owner offered it to me on Saturday for a decent price (the rear rim rim may be cooked & it also has a bad pedal). I am hoping it is a sweet rider...
The light and horn are original and work and the bezel has no...
Certainly this bike is patina'd but no charge for that.
Bike rides and works real good.
I have put a lot of miles on it.
The wheels are several years old with a good working SA 3 speed with coaster brakes.
Fenders and the frame are very straight.
Tires are as new.
Frame and guard have been powder coasted black. Seat is NOS but has some shelf wear, pedals are union and new, wheels are in need of cleaning and maitenance, fenders are stainless, rear rack is AWOL, but has left a nice mark on the rear fender. Headlight is NOS schwinn, correct for a later year...
Powder coated frame is early 60's (Can't read the serial number) Stainless fenders, correct wheels, replacement tires are new, seat is NOS, head light is NOS, pedals are nos and UNION, front rack is good and rear is missing. Tail reflector has a crack. Wheels have not been cleaned up yet...
Did all 1954 cantilever middleweight frames have this style decal, or was this just for the Jaguar? A while back, I bought a middleweight bicycle which has a serial number of P19963. I learned later that that number was issued in 1954 and 1956. It was advertised as a 1954, and not knowing...
Been lurking for quite awhile, but this is my first post. I’ve been into old bikes of all kinds for years, but recently have been focusing on some of my old Schwinns by first refurbishing a couple for my 6 and 9 year old daughters (70 Stardust for the older one, 72 Hollywood for the...
New Old Stock, Schwinn 26" Middleweight Front Fender. Part No. 52010. Does not include braces. Looks good, some light peppering mostly on underside. Few very light pin size dings & General Shop wear. Believe it will polish up nicely or run as is on a original condition bike. . $30Shipped Or...
Very hard to find deluxe aluminum front rack for a 24" Schwinn, came on Corvettes etc.
Comes with the Schwinn stamped clip, and the original unique triangle nut/bolt. Still has the original Schwinn Approved tag on front.
Good condition, no road rash or big gouges, some scratches and a bit of...
This is from a Schwinn Middleweight. I rolled out all of the big creases with a fender roller. There are scuffs scratches, etc as you would expect. These are for the 3-speed bike. Braces include, (no hardware).
Note: The chrome is good, the white shown on the one fender is just tape and...
