Not really much of a biker

Hey! I don't want to try fool anyone, I am not really a biker. I googled a question and it led me to this sight. I have an Autobike that I have ridden for about 18 years with no problems. It has helped me recover mobility after knee replacement, and am now riding it back and forth to work - the high school where I teach. This last week I began having a problem with my cranks and the local bike shop says They cannot fix or get the parts for it. I am looking for an autobike I can use for parts, or someone who can tell me where to go to get parts. How about it? Anyone help this old (61) Vet out?

Howdy and welcome to the forums.

You might try posting a good picture of the crank setup and see what people think. I was thinking on those Autobikes, that the crank was pretty normal and the rear wheel/shifter was different, but maybe that's not the case.

Autobikes do show up used on occasion, and they're usually not a whole lot of money when they do.
