    Foremost badged Muscle

    I found this at a swap meet this weekend. Missing guard and seat which I probably have. Not sure if the pedals are correct. The serial number is somewhat of a mystery. It doesn’t seem to correspond to any Murray serial numbers. Anyone know what year this could be?

    72 Huffy Rail frame

    Can't find another one in red in Google images. Frame had a console shifter originally. Would like to know if it was a 3 speed or a 5 speed and what chain guard it had. I did find pictures of the earlier 3 bar frames in red as well as short 2 bar frames in red. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Monark built, Trophy Frame, Can anyone tell me about it?

    I picked this up a few weeks ago. Can't find much info on Trophy bikes. Skiptooth chain and crank, I don't know if any of the parts are original to the frame. Plate on BB reads: Model no. 3106, Serial no. A008923. Any help would be appreciated (age, built by etc.) Thanks

    1962 Schwinn Tornado??

    Found this on Craigslist. Serial no. A214478 tells me was built Dec. '62. The 1962 Schwinn Catalog does not show the Tornado. The older catalogs show the Tornado with a different frame. The only bike pictures I can find with this exact frame have 24 inch wheels, this one has 26 inch wheels. Any...

    Rusty Ladies Color Flow

    Found it at a Swap meet Friday. I was going to put a front wheel on it and ride but the rear hub is seized up. Front of bike was trashed, especially the front wheel.

    I need help with spoke sizes PLEASE

    I'm using a Wheelmaster 24 x 2.125 36 hole hoop that I purchased from Niagara Cycle and a 1971 Sturmey Archer 3 speed type AW 36 hole hub. I have looked online at spoke sizing calculators and am completely confused. There seems to be so many things to measure and I don't know if I am even...
