  1. Hi Nola
    I love your blog. Do you sell these bike you rebuild. I am looking for a vintage mixte bike to supplement my worn out 40 year Raleigh. Let me know. thank you for sharing.

  2. I would like an estimate for the old 1940s bike I inherited from my dad. It is currently in Europe but I plan to have it shipped over to the US soon. Is that something you could do and how much would it be (ballpark)? I can send some images.
    Thanks

    • Hi Yves,

      Do you know the builder/maker of the frame and what model? Before sending photos that would help. I don’t give value estimates but may be able to point you in the right direction.

  3. Ms. Wilken; I recently acquired a Raleigh Sport 3speed. It has a 5 inch rear reflector; Shimano hub; no white fender trim. Can you guess how old it might be. Appreciate your work. Daniel Sinsley .Allentown, Pa.

  4. Ms. Wilken, I don’t know who else to turn to. I have seen pictures of bikes with a short, flat chainstay and a vertically inclined seatstay. This is most interesting but I can’t find out anything about it. Is there a time frame; was this a popular style? Thanking you in advance. Happy Holidys. Daniel in Allentown, Pa

    • Hi Daniel,

      I can’t picture what you are referring to. A vertical seat stay and short chain stay would mean possibly a tiny rear wheel, and/or a non diamond shaped frame.

  5. Short horizontal chainstay. The seatstay is angled closely to the seat tube. Rear wheel is close to the bottom bracket. I can’t find any pictures bu some of the Raleigh Technium come close. Daniel in Allentown

  6. Hi Nola,

    Love your bikes and detailed internet presentations (wish I had that much patience for such Internet posting)! Hey you mentioned that you have many freewheel pullers except a TDC (three notched), I have three and if you’d like one and you could have it for free as long as you’d cover shipping. If you’d like I could send you photos.

    Happy & Safe Cycling!!!

      • HI Nola,

        Gee sorry I haven’t seen your reply (I’m not so internet savvy) . Yes I still have the TDC freewheel puller.

        Don
