Are there any Corvette 5 speed owners here?

For sure I know vincev, greenephantom and schwinnbikebobb are and I'm looking for anyone else that has this model. I have a Registry for this bike and would really like to add your Corvette 5 to the list.

If you are interested in adding your Corvette to the registry below please let me know!

Just bought a 1962 5 speed. Local barn find..Will post pics later..
Jim, congrats on the barn find! And please post the pics here along with the serial number. Thanks!

Don, I think Popmachines decided to can the making of the pie plates. There were not enough people interested to meet the number required to cover the expense. Hopefully someday these will get reproduced.

I have two of them, both from original owners. A blue beauty and a recent find that I am bringing completely back from the dead. Gary not totally sure if I gave you all the info on both.

Lets see some pictures! ;) I see the Blue 62 is listed.

And Spoker, AKA buick, where is the one that you sold? Gotta new owners name for me?

Kevin and Don, please post some pictures and add your info.

I'd be interested in a repo pie plate. Mine is missing. I'm 26thstwoodsman on your list, fattyre on here.

I also need a brake caliper arm. The side with the barrel adjuster. It was bent from the bars being turned and hitting the frame. I broke it like a dummy trying to straighten it. If anyone has one I'd be interested.

Who got the pretty green one from Iowa last week? Anyone here? He was asking (and I believe got) $1200. I thought about it for 5 minutes...Looked super nice and og.

What site or where was this one listed?

Spoker, I changed the owners name on the one you sold. So he's not a member here huh?

Hobo Bill. As soon as I can find a way to reduce the characters on the list, or have the max limit here changed, I'll add you to the list. (Got you listed!)

Finally riding a big boys bike
Dec 29, 2009
Lititz, United States
Here's my bike that I have had since May of 1975.
Reporting in for you, Gary. I damn near lost this bike in the spring as my wife threw me out of the house. Fortunately, I was able to cash in a life insurance policy to buy a nice newer mobile home outright, and have moved all my important stuff, and myself into it. that is why I have been kind of rare lately, but here is the bike. Still looking good through thick and thin.

I just took these pics a couple of minutes ago as of this posting.
