1972 Mi Sung I don't know much about this double seat tricycle. The only things it says are "made in Korea" and on the seats it has a baseball theme with the words "mi sung". I found it in a garage sell, I thought it was soo cute. I want to restore it for my son. If any one knows more info. about this tricycle

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

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.
