    Schwinn Tank

    Is there a specific name for those slim tanks that fit the Schwinn cantilever frames? I'm pretty sure they came on the Schwinn American. What can I expect to pay for one and how hard are they to find? Thanks

I gave them what I thought was a very fair price. They were cool with the price and said they wanted...

    I have got a chain ring that I would like to use but its slightly bent. Doesn't look to bad but it's enough to make the chain pop off. So, what's the best way to straighten it? Thanks.

    Did I make a mistake?

    I listed this bike on CL for $140 and a day later I sold it for $120. I thought it was fair, not the best price (for me) but certainly not the worst, right? I ask because the gentlemen who is picking it up saturday will be making a 2+ hour trip one way to pick it up. What am I missing? Is this...

    Well here it is, the end, thank God. This was a lot more work then I could have ever imagined and it took me untill about two hours ago to finnish. Everything on the bike except for the wheels, bars, pedals, and some hardware is polished steel which is what took up about 95% of my time. Went on...

    24" Colson

    I just looked at a 24" Colson loop tail last night, I walked away from it though. I still might be working a trade for it though. The reason I walked away was because there was something really wrong with the crank, there was tons of play in it. Normally that wouldn't be an issue for me but...

    Two Questions

    What kind of tires would have come original on a 1941 Columbia? and kind of a stupid one I think... When you hear bikes classified as Pre War What exactly are we talking about, bikes earlier then '39 only, or does it include any number of years into the war? It seems like I see a lot of bikes...

    Lengthen chain?

    I have put a bigger tire on one of my builds and I have a very minor rub. There is enough room in the drop outs to slide the wheel back but the chain is a touch to short. If I add to the chain with 2 links it is to long. Is there anyway to lengthen a chain by only one link?
