I have the following bikes up for sale, I live about five miles from Billing, so collection could be arranged. If you need details/pictures, please mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
2004 Schwinn Stingray launch model. 2500 of these were made for the launch of the OCC Stingray, and were better spec than the standard bikes, having a chrome frame with red guards – the front guard was only on this edition – and folding cruiser pegs on the front forks. It’s US-spec, which means no front brake and low V-bars. It has its swing-ticket and wheel disc, and has never been sat upon but did suffer some very minor cosmetic damage during import, hence the price of £190.
1970s Raleigh Candy 20inch girls bike. I bought this as a donor for my Rodeo, but it’s too good to break, and my kids say it rides very nicely. The chrome’s a bit rough but I only want a tenner for it.
Swingbike, early Fu-Lu model. It’s a bit cosmetically-challenged, but fully working, ride or restore (I have been riding it!) excellent fun and not as difficult as it looks; £150
1970s Schwinn World Tour tenspeed. Lugged frame in an enormous size. Has a couple of broken spokes, but when those are replaced it’s a ride or restore for £20
1976 Schwinn Stingray. Met red paint very nice but the rest slightly ragged; £200.
1977 Schwinn Stingray Fairlady. Would clean up nicely I think – another ride or restore; £90.
1967 Schwinn Corvette – 24 inch wheels. Nice. £150.
1959 Schwinn middleweight basket case. No handlebars. Rescuable with effort, frame’s straight and sound (but show me one that isn’t!) would make a quality rod or cruiser. £50.
1980 Schwinn Stingray Pixie. Straight tube model. Wicked little bike but has been used by a succession of five-year olds. Rare, £100.
1970s Dutch ladies loop frame bike. Three-speed Torpedo coaster. I’ve had this for twenty years! Could do with a tidy now; £15.
1920s Loop frame roadster. Well rough and painted pink. Worth rescuing ; £10.
1960 Sears Hawthorne middleweight. Small tank and twin-top-tube frame. Has faded in the California sun to a nice burnt orange, excellent patina, would look cool in the back of a rod or pickup. Oversized bars but could be cut down. I ride this one! £125.
Finally, the gem of my collection; 1941 Monark Firestone Cruiser Deluxe. Unrestored. 24 inch wheels. Met. Purple with white/orange coachlines. Large-tanked ballooner in totally original condition. Restored these fetch up to $2000. £250 and it’s yours.
