Want to buy a chain ring guard for my 70's swing bike.It's the circular one that just goes around the pedal sprocket. Does anyone have one to sell in good condition ? The one on my bike is beat up and I really would like one in better condition to finish my bike.

Thinning collection…..

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: luddite.morgan@zen.co.uk

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.

I just got myself an early (FU-LU?) Swingbike. Unfortunately it's been kept outside so needs a bit of work to make it look smart.

I have got some questions that I am hoping someone can answer!

The bars are matt black. I've scraped some off and they don't appear to be chromed underneath, and the black is a coating rather than a paint. Is this a standard feature or has this been done by someone?

The guards are black too, but I know they're a replacement (they were Swingbike parts allegedly!). The rear one doesn't follow the curve of the tyre completely. Is this normal or are mine just poor quality?

What reflectors were fitted and where to? If someone could post pics I'd be grateful.

The guy I bought from took the springs off and although he could find the springs, the end plates and hooks had disappeared. Can someone please post a good picture and some dimensions (metal thicknesses/diameters, hole spacing etc.) so I can make up some more?

Mine has a high sissy which I have not seen on a swingbike - was this a standard fit?

Finally, where can I get a yellow sparkle silver piped banana seat from without breaking the bank!!

Thanks in advance for your help - I'm chuffed to be one of you swingers at last!

MIDLANDS CHOPPER SHOW 2004
At
ELVASTON STEAM RALLY

ELVASTON CASTLE COUNTRY PARK, DERBY (Junct 25 M1)

Sat 3rd & Sun 4th JULY 2004

We have been invited by the Organisers of the event to bring along the bikes.

We've been allocated a pitch, so what are you waiting for you need to be there.

However we are not allowed to park the cars etc on the pitch, so you'll need to drop off the bikes and put the car in the exhibitor’s car park.

Sounds like it'll be a good weekend, with loads of attractions, food, drink and best of all, loads of Raleigh Choppers. Good weather guaranteed as usual. Obviously a few cruises as well.

There is camping etc, for a small fee. Details for this to follow.

Have you seen the cruise pictures for Billing 04, can we top that?

use the poll above so we can gauge the nubmers coming.

The Whole weekend was fantastic, Thanks to everyone who managed to get there, also much apologies to some, who I didn’t get to see or talk to, the time just flew past. Many thanks to John and Gail for a copy of Johns excellent resto book, A bargain too and well worth buying just to see Alan Oakley surrounded by a sea of choppers at the factory in the mid seventies
Met lots of new comers including the very nice Guys and Girls from the Irish Raleigh Chopper Club (John, Max and there Good Ladies
And Mario and his lovely wife who not only has a new chopper but a lovely lowrider in Lilac (Hope the trip back wasn’t to painful) Let me know about the meet in Belgium
Many thanks also the Tall Martin, the Rat club and Catfood Rob whose evening entertainment was as Brilliant as ever! And not forgetting Tall Martins fantastic Chopper with a 16" rear wheel and tyre what a cool ride
Many thanks To Chopper Chap too for letting me have the opportunity to drive a bond Bug What A Beauty!
Swingbike Owners Club Was also formed, 5 (Yes 5) Swingers all in the same place! All five had there own Cruise around the park stopping people in there tracks
Full pics on the site very soon, now the caravan is un-packed, only took 6 hours

Hi Gary,

Just thought id drop by to see how things were going with the swingbike site.

I have found a website downloading tool to download a complete website should you need to do so, e mail me for further info m8.

I see that you are getting a good amount of messages here, more so than the RGOC has in the last 7-8 months.

looking for a swing bike, so am looking for a rough price to work on, i would be looking for a basket case (rusty heap) and work from there, unless i can find someone to build the nessecary framework for me so i could build replica.

Anyways, great job on the site so far gary.

Pardon my interruption but I have recently returned from the Ann Arbor Classic Bicycle Show and have gone completely nuts about the Swingbike I saw there.

My question comes in two parts:
#1: Is it possible for a 40 plus year old man to ride? I have Restored/Reconditioned 14 bicycles over the past 10 years and each one is on the road at least once each summer. What fun is it to put all the time and effort into them, let alone the money, and then not be able to ride them?

#2: Is there a source for pricing based on condition and originality? ( I know that bicycle prices are always dictated by what one is willing to pay, but the price disparity was staggering at the show. They stated at $500 US amd worked up from there.)

I have this years project already lined up (Basket case Pea Picker) but it's never too early to start researching next years!
Thanks for your Help!
