Facebook bike . Cheap
I did learn it has has what is called a rainbow frame ?
Is it a Roadmaster ?
Its not a rainbow frame...its a cantilever frame. Looks AMF, could be a Roadmaster, but that doesn't look like a Roadmaster badge.
Head badge is Gambles Hiawatha.
Thank You . Woth the $50 asking price ? I already bought a
Goodyear from him and he's offering this bike to me ?
Most any bike with a tank is worth $50. How can you lose?
AMFs may not get a lot of love, but it is a 50+ year old bike with a tank...so, .
The chain wheel and everything is late 50's AMF. It used the seatpost that tightens like a handlebar stem, no collar on the frame. Looks like someone stuck something in there, but shouldn't be hard to fix. Worth 50 bucks even without the fork.
From the 59 Gambles catalog:
Thank You . I have arranged to pick it up next month . (payday )
This gentleman picked up a truck full of bike parts at the end of some car auction . He's a car guy , so he just wants to recoup his investment . He's only 30 minutes away .
I'd take a few extra bucks and buy some of those parts. Or all of 'em!
Looks like some good useable stuff you've run into , Go for it !
Mr Boltnut , this will be another one that I will be relying on your master rat skills to keep me on track . I still have that shiny bike syndrome .
