Question about Raleigh Cycling

1 Answer

I have a retro coaster bike, about 5 years old. When first strating out, the peddle travels about three quarters of a turn before engaging, same if trying to brake. The more I ride, the less play

The rear hub/brake assembly is shot, you need to buy a new rim, or get the assembly repaired.

Drive {pedel cog} just turns but will not drive the wheel cog


If a one speed coaster brake the rear hub needs to be overhauled. Take to a bike shop or bike co-op, unless you want to look up, study and follow carefully: Bicycle Coaster Brakes

I have a schwinn serial number dp509984. I would like to known what year make and model it is as well as a price range if at all poossible. Thanks for ur help


It would help if you had at least provided the type of bike (old coaster brake, 3 speed, 10 speed, etc.) The make is Schwinn, the model is written right on the bike frame or chainguard. If the bike is repainted so that the model is not visible it's not worth much. As far as year, just Google "Schwinn serial number" (and note info about date codes) and see my tip for more info: How to determine the year value etc of your bicycle

I found a very old Scwinn 26" boy's with a 3 speed coaster brake on it. I figure someone swapped it decades ago. Do you know how far back that 3 speed w/ coaster bakes goes?


Three speed Schwinn's go back to the late 50's and 60's. Just type Schwinn Photos in the command line on the internet search page area and a full page of pictures will come up. Here you may see the exact bike you purchased with the descriptions.

When coasting the pedals keep moving so you have to continue to pedal and when peddling backwards the bike goes backwards, how do I stop this?


I assume that this bike normally has a coaster brake. If so, your coaster brake mechanism (inside the hub of the drive wheel) is jammed or broken. You will have to disasssemble the wheel hub. This bike might have a coaster brake on both rear wheels or maybe just one side. Lift both rear wheels off the ground and turn them independently to determine which side the problem is on.

When riding the peddles slip,it appears that the chain is engaged and that the axle is slipping and make s the peddles spin, not engaged


If this is a coaster brake bike (single speed, no hand brakes) then the problem might be inside the rear wheel hub. If that is the case then you can only fix it by completely dis-assembling the rear wheel hub - or it might be simply that the chain is slipping, which would not happen unless the chain is too loose which would be indicated by the bottom of the chain hanging down too low. However, if this is a multi-speed bike, then it could be that the chain and rear-wheel cogs are worn - which can be fixed by replacing the freewheel and the chain - however, it takes a lot of use or rust and dirt before that level of wear happens.

When trying to pedal the bike, the sprocket does not engage, rather the pedals just go around without resistance, or engaging the chain. Everything else seems okay. It has been hanging upside down in my...


You, as the only one of us who can see the bike, need to focus on what is or is not happening to define the problem better. Chains engage gears. If not, maybe the chain fell off. Try web searching "chain fell off" or "chain fell off autobike classic" or any common simple symptom to get a feel for the various reasons it happens.

Me and a mate have been trying to bleed my clutch on my 80 series for 5 hrs and carnt get anywhere. What the hell am I doing wrong? I can do everythingt else other then 1 of the simplist job


Just follow the procedure in the right order. Fill the clutch reservoir on the master cylinder to the max and leave the lid loose. Fit a transparent plastic pipe on the bleed nipple on the clutch slave cylinder bleed nipple. Put the other end of the pipe into a jar to catch the waste fluid. Put some thick grease around the base threads of the bleed nipple, this stops air being sucked in via the threads whne the nipple is slackened off. Loosen the bleed nipple by 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate slowly depress the clutch peddle. When he has reached maximum travel have him hold it there while you turn the bleed nipple a third turn back to tight. Have your mate release the clutch peddle, clutch fluid from the master reservoir should now fill the the master cylinder. Have you mate press the peddle a quarter way and then release the bleed nipple a 1/3 of a turn. Have your mate depress the clutch peddle all the way to maximum travel. Again tighten off the bleed nipple before releasing the clutch peddle. Keep doing this process until no more air bubbles can be seen in the fluid in the pipe attached to the bled nipple. Every four cycles or so check on the fluid level in the master reservoir and keep topped up with fresh fluid. When everything completed tighten the bleed nipple, it is not necessary to tighten the hell out of it as at some point you may need to do this again. Wipe everything down pump the clutch peddle a few times to be sure of correct operation and no leaks.

Putting the cahin back on???duh???


If the chain has just slipped of the best way get it back on is to physically lift it into place at the top of the chain ring (the cog where the pedals are).
Then turn the pedals in the direction you would usually pedal (you may have to lift the back wheel off the ground).
This ought to pull the chain back on and let you get back on the open road.

After riding ten minutes, the bike stalls on street or highway


I think there will be some dust or something else which stops the smooth flowing of Petrol from Fuel tank to engine.
Since its not completly blocked, its running for few kms and turning off.
This is not a strange problem.
