I set it that way because I haven't shipped one of these yet and don't really know what to expect for cost. If someone knows, I would appreciate the info. Nice little original banana...

The brake arm and spoon are usually missing. I feel blessed. This may be the original tire. The tires...

    Junkhunter's Dixie Flyer

    My latest rustoration. When I saw the colors on this head badge this is what came to mind. I think it's a nice rider. Will definitely be a hit on the 4th of July. Rides smooth on those Carlisle tires. I like it anyway.

    Worth anything?

    I picked up this little Firestone Bronco yesterday and was wondering if it was worth anything much? I paid $15 for it. It has a nice dragster style Carslile dragster tire on the back, and a Firestone Super Cushion tire on the front. Proceeds went to a charity so that's why I got it. I usually do...

    Spaceliner Question

    There's a Spaceliner tank that runs along the crossbar, and there's one they call a "7" model, because it looks like a 7. Here's my question. Both involve parts for the 7 model. Is the front part of the tanks, lenses, housing, etc, the same on both the mens and women's? i can't find close up...

    Bowden Spacelander

    The Copake Swap Meet and Auction is in a couple of weeks. They are going to auction 3 or 4 Bowden Spacelander's. I'm considering bidding on these as an investment. Something to buy and sit on for 10 years, then sell for a decent cash return. Before I begin this, how much can I expect to have to...
