Posted by: Spike TITLE: AGE / VALUE: Some lucky finds
Well we had a darn good weekend hunting up some bikes.
Friday we found a very nice c.1960s Columbia tandem a
Huffy middle weight and aSchwinn Bantam with a stingray style seat.All in very respectable condition.And all at one sale.
Today again at one sale We found a 60 Schwinn Racer Single speed coaster brake comeplete with its S seat,
A 62 stripped 3 speed mens frame with a Bendix 2 speed kickback rear hub,nice rims and a forties seat and a fair
Columbia mens single speed 26" lightweight?All at $2 each.
Then to top it all
off a terrific little approximate 1/4 scale toy girls bike
with working light,front basket,working bulb horn,real rearview mirror, a rear rack,3 piece freewheel style crank assembly,and a real chain.A wonderful little toy.
Now if I can just find some place to keep them all.

You hit it right on Ken.It is Mollys Blue bicycle by American Girl.It has been retired
New ones are asking $100 or more and I saw a used one at
$70.Two others at only about $18.I paid less than $100 for my DL1.
