    Looking for help identifying American Pre-war Lightweight

    So this is what it would have looked like had it not lived on a farm for all these years. I am glad you folks were my voice of reason as I was all ready to strip this thing down for paint.

    Well I did a little more searching at found it looks to be a "victory" bicycle most likely made by Dayton-Huffman. http://www.questmasters.us/Bicycles.html I also found what looks like uploads from a Firestone catalog. The chainring, paint job, and optional chain guard matches...

    Lejeune Folding bikes

    It's hard to tell from your photos but, those look like the folding frames that were super common in the 60s and 70s. I had one that was branded Amica. If in good condition they can be fun little bikes. Most of them were made in Italy and will have cottered cranks with and Italian threaded...

    Rainy day $5 Fuji

    Is that a "Dynamic 12" or something of the sort? I got a blue Dynamic 12 at goodwill for $19.99 it had a rat trap rack and a gel seat. I tuned it up and it rides great! Mine has alloy everything so I'm not sure if it is the same as yours. Either way I think you did great. -Moto

    what did i find

    Well I'm not an expert but I would say judging by the skip tooth it is a pre-war also the paint scheme and chain-ring screams Schwinn. That's all I can tell you. -Moto

    Rat trap springers

    I actually saw that one and yeah what the other guys said is why it is worth so much. You probably won't see another on ebay for a long time.

    I made a ROOKIE MISTAKE

    I think I have one S7 tire that came off a Schwinn breeze. It is pretty slick but in good condition and narrow. Let me know if you're interested, sadly I only have one. -Moto

    my full hubless project

    This is really cool, but I am with everyone else on how the heck you attached the tires and made them spin/stay on. Nice work, throw some taller bars on it though you're hurting my back! -Moto

    Schwinn suburban fillet braze

    They aren't completely worthless but if you don't have any of the other parts I would just sell it for scrap.

    Neat Peugeot and other bikes!

    To the right person that Bianchi is worth a pretty penny. They only made lugged mountain bikes for a short period of time before switching to TIG. Nice find.

    UNOFFICIAL FOLDING BIKE BUILD OFF CONTEST

    Well I figured since everyone else is sharing theirs I will post mine. It's a 60's Italian Amica 20" folder that I picked up for $40.00 and then lots of work and $100.00 or so dollars later.... I converted it to fixed gear and gave it a front disc brake, rides so much better now.
