I noticed that today when I was talking to a friend who collects Schwinn bicycles. I said, Oh yeah, look at these!


Another Spider logo has however shown up: http://www.ebay.com/itm/191723940478 Currently at $610 with 23 bids. Too bad really, as the one with the crack had the nicest logo of the three.

On something that old, wouldn't a repair done right be OK? I know in furniture it's acceptable.

It seems a repair to CI is impossible. The best repair is brass for adhesion but looks like hell. A steel weld is the wrong texture and looks just as bad as brass, and is subject to cracking again with a different expansion coefficient from the CI. It is a different world from dealing with wood.

You will notice right away it's been repaired.You don't have to be an expert to see it's been repaired.

Its impossible to get the texture of cast with a weld. That being said, as im not a "real" collector, it wouldnt hurt the value to me. I like things that have a "story". Gives it character

Hot Damn, there's now another listed. Even worse condition than the others.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/181915014342
Currently $210 with 18 bids.

I'd almost take the cracked one over this one.

I don't know Rick, the bottom wear is normal due to the sulfur from the wood fires this was used on. No cracks in this one either.
