Collecting Old American Iron Peddlers
« on: March 14, 2011, 09:02:57 AM »
about 12 years ago,  i got hooked to restoring old american 26" ballooner.

these bikes are very rare here in the philippines,  brought here by americans during wwII. ..  most of these bikes here now are in junk condition, the excitement of these hobby is to collect the correct parts (very hard to find indeed) then assemble it to a roadwothy condition...

here  are some of my bikes...

1. columbia five star deluxe



2.murray 24" klunker



3.Coke theme: scchwinn stright bar , 24"  (gone)



4.Fender theme: columbia 3  star deluxe...



on the road...

1.  gaas bro try mo i soak, 24 to 48 hrs... mas mura sa wd 40; 
2.  kung di kaya, acetylene..
3.  last resort, cut it!... replace mo na lang.

problema ko din yan, mas lalo dahil mga 50 yrs up mga bikes ko!..

try mo lang...

Dude! That is hardcore. Kudos for sourcing out those gems. I remember, when I was very young, that we used to have a similar bike that had buildings on its headtube metal emblem. Any idea what brand it was?

hi bart, i cannot figure out your  head badge,  however, the more popular/common vintage american ballooner  in the philippines were, Schwinn, Columbia, Mornark, Roadmaster...Roadmasters badge resembles a design like tall buildings in the background (but they are not).. There are other coolectible brands like elgin, hawthorne, huffman, dayton, indian etc etc but they are very rare here...
