Finally riding a big boys bike
This is among my really fun bikes that need to be moved on, for the sake of space. Packing them for shipping takes time that I really should be spending with my kids, so I’m offering them discounted for local pick up only. All are offered well below fair market value.

Pickup is this Sunday, August 30, only between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm. I will not hold anything until payment is made by PayPal. For items over $100, I will hold until next Sunday, September 6.

In conjunction with this, I am going to be doing a massive sale of parts, all at $1 each.
The following bicycles are being offered:
1939 Viking Special. Has frame crack. $200
1952 J.C. Higgins Colorflow $200 (Since I purchased it, I replaced the tires with nice whitewalls. I cleaned it up - it just need to be reassembled. May be missing a couple minor bolts/screws)
1967 Schwinn men's cruiser $30
1970 green Schwinn Panther or Typhoon $75
Schwinn Breeze five speed black $25
1988 Schwinn one speed with 700c wheels $75
1978 Raleigh Tourist with upgraded aluminum 28 x 1.5 wheels and tires and Kool Stop Salmon brake pads $175

Also check out my amazing 1961 Schwinn Jaguar Mark IV.

I picked it up because the push rod brakes and 28 x 1.5 wheels reminded me of a ToC bicycle without the fear of things breaking on me. The previous owner replaced the rims with aluminum ones for improved stopping power. Further, he adjusted the Sturmey-Archer three speed hub so that it shifts like a dream. The chain was also replaced.

For this one I will sell the wheels alone for $150, shipped.

This is a gorgeous bicycle with paint thick enough that some elbow grease could really make it shine.

The only downside is that the fork appears to be a little bit bent. It has no problem going straight when riding, but when you take your hands off the bars, it veers to the right.

I’m moving this one on because it just doesn’t excite me like I thought it would.
