What I'm Wanting: Vintage Exercise Bike

Something I've wanted for a long time, but never had room for, is a vintage exercise bike! They are so retro-cool, and good for you too :) We have plenty of room in our apartment now, so I am actively on the hunt. Once I get back to my favorite Richmond thrifts, I'm going to check out Love of Jesus Thrift, which is most likely to have one :)

Here is an example of what I'm looking for:

I've found quite a few on eBay, but non close enough to pick up. (They are a little too expensive to ship!) I don't know how likely it is that I'll find one in working condition, but I definitely will be on the lookout :)

Have you ever thrifted any exercise things? This will certainly be my first!



  1. It's so funny you mention this, I just finished watching the 2nd season of Lost (in which there is a vintage exercise bike) and I totally want one now, too! Good luck in your search!

  2. We actually have one similar to that sitting in our barn. Very poor condition of course, and I'm not sure that it could be repaired to anything pretty looking. But I've never seen one in a thrift store.

    However...on my last visit to Goodwill the woman behind me was buying an AbRocket type thing and it was ticketed as $7.99! I was trippin'. That's a crazy good price, especially if it actually works....

  3. we see them all the time at yard sales here in Seattle.
    Craigs list? What about local pick up from ebay or freecycle (no pun intended)

  4. my parents have this bike. in very good condition

  5. I have an antique stationary exercise bike. It's a nice bike, but very heavy. It seems to be in great condition. The style of the bike is older than any I've ever seen. Where can I sell this beauty?

  6. I have one in good condition. make offer. leave message. live in . city of Evansville.southern Indiana. email I want to sell it.

  7. I have on dated 1932
