    Hard to tell from the pictures, but it looks like the front wheel is alloy and the rear is steel, suggesting the front wheel was replaced at some point. That, plus the fact that the front wheel...

    If you have one of those X-in-1 screwdrivers with the removable/reversable bits, usually that'll fit right over those nuts if you take the bit out.

    I don't remember what the frame material is, but I'll tell you that $200 is pretty steep for an 80s Hard Rock.

    Sure, I haven't heard from him so I'll assume he doesn't want them, I'll send you a PM with my info.

    The manual shift Bendix 2 speed dates it to I believe the late 1950s. The shifter and hub are worth probably $100-150ish if functional. As for the bike, it's a non-Schwinn, American built bike of...

    Yup, that'd be it, but before you order it pop the wheel off and look at your current freewheel to make sure you really do need the 4 prong rather than the 2 prong, I'm not 100% sure on when they...

    6 speed freewheel spacing should be the same across all brands (with the exception of "ultra 6" freewheels), so this would suit your needs just fine:...

    No, I believe the cassette spacing is the same, but the cable pull is different for the derailleur.

    Maybe more than you want to spend since you say you don't need hoods, but I have a suuuper nice set in my parts bin. Attaching pictures below. I suspect these have never been used but I don't know...

    Under $4k for one of the most hilarious abominations ever released under the Schwinn name. How could you go wrong?!

    Probably a 3 speed Collegiate. Please lower the stem to a safe level so you don't die.

    I get the impression that Raleigh/Carlton in the early 70s was basically "whatever parts the assembler happens to grab out of the bin," hence all the varied information about threading on Super...

    I'd agree, 150 would probably be on the high end of what it could potentially sell for. I'd put that one at more like $75-100 due to the ugly colors and mountain bike tires.

    Tough to say with the non-original parts, but as a point of reference for you I recently sold a 1980 Tourist in a bit rougher shape for $300, and had a few people lined up to buy it.

    The Suburban will have one of the weird Schwinn seatposts with the tiny saddle clamp area. If you already have a double rail saddle on there, you can just re-use your existing clamp. If you don't,...

    I think in the late 80s-very early 90s, after the introduction of SIS but before brifters, Shimano was absolutely the best stuff out there. If you're building a bike with brifters, I'd take Campy...

    The short answer is that it's extremely difficult to mess up a 3 speed.

    As a good general rule with department store bikes, the simpler they are, the better.

    Low end bike, zero effort single speed conversion, and no bar wrap. I'd put value at maybe $50, but that may be being a bit generous. Seller is dreaming if he thinks that's worth $200.

    Probably not, 19mm radius difference, if it did work it'd require one heck of a long reach brake.

    Paselas are great, but I don't think they're even made in the more common 590mm 26 x 1-3/8 size. As far as I know, the only tires still made in the 597mm 26 x 1-3/8 S6 size are the cheap Kendas.
