1901 - 1910 Sunbeam oilbath halfmoon shield Sunbeam oilbath halfmoon shield (patent 1905)

This illustrates Sunbeam patent no. GB190515493 , the "half-moon shield" (This patent no. appears on the oilbath itself in its earlier form 15493/05)

and also, perhaps, GB190827189, the bolt-on oil-bath - the words "patent" and a number below can just be made out on the perforated chainstay to the left of the crank, though it does not look like the right number.

(see the originals of both by keying in the nos at ep.espacenet.com/numberSearch?locale=en_EP)

1987 Schwinn Ontare

(Click for full photo)


1987 Schwinn Ontare This is my 1988 Schwinn Ontare which I have restored. It is still needed the original decals, the brakeset is Suntour Sprint like the rest of the componets. It originally came with Royal Compe II brakes which I have but are not mounted. Schwinns first aluminum built bicycle offered in 1988, they were a little late in offering an aluninum lightweight bicycle to the market but it was worth the wait. I~m the original owner of this Ontare.

1980 Huffy Aerowind

(Click for full photo)


1980 Huffy Aerowind Early 1980~s Huffy Aerowind. Has shimano AX components, though not the models you see on higher end bikes. The brakes are Shimano AX parapul~s which is a center pull braking system. Three piece shimano cranks, steel rims, and 1" x 1 3/8" gumwall tires. The handlebar wrap and seat are not original. Wrap was tan cotton, and seat was grey suede(Avocet made in Italy) The seat was in as pristine shape as the bike was, so I didn~t want to leave it on the bike of course. It was a stroke of luck even finding a Huffy road bike in this shape, much less one that is 20+ years old:-) Hope you enjoy it.

1931 - 1940 Schwinn Henderson

(Click for full photo)


1931 - 1940 Schwinn Henderson This is a late 1930s Schwinn Henderson Balloon Tire Cruiser. Single speed, New Departure Model D coaster brake, Torrington Company Stem, Handlebars, pedals (those were replaced due to damage. Original tires were made by Western Auto Supply of Kansas City but were replaced due to wear. Tires and pedals are new replacements, but the rest of the bicycle is original. Art deco style artwork in metal and paint present. Schwinn Black Cross Chicago logo on the seat tube, Troxel giant springer leather saddle also original. It rides like a Cadillac, long wheel base and smooth as ice. Uphill it~s a real bear though. Rims are 26X2.125 full size balloons. The bike cost me nothing to get, my grandpa bought it from the original owner back around 1940 and it~s been in the family every since. I found it in his barn one day by accident while working with my dad. Photo by me, Mike Rybak

(Click for full photo)


1961 Schwinn Streamliner Schwinn Streamliner tank bicycle. I~m guessing it~s late-50~s, early-60~s model. I~m not sure, if you are, let me know the year. 26" tires, rides nice. I believe the tank on it is after-market, but everything else is all original. Paint not perfect, but all original, chrome looks good, too.
