    New question here. Hiwassee Replacement Parts

    I have a 1998 Litespeed Hiwassee that is in need of replacement suspension bushings and a derailleur hanger. The factory has been no help whatsoever. Any ideas on where these can be found? If I don't get parts, the bike is a throwaway...

    A rep at Litespeed, Ben Harrison, says "we have nothing left" "I do not know where to send you" I didn't think that 8 years was THAT old for a frame, but it did only run one year. At this point in time, I'm not thrilled with Litespeed. I think that I can come up with substitute bushings from a specialty shop, but I still need extra hangers or it's not worth investing in other replacement parts.

    skivt, They have stopped supporting this bike and have not supported it for sometime now.

    I think the only option is to pick up a another bike or start calling all litespeed dealers and see if anyone has parts left over.

    Speaking of another bike. A good friend of mine has a 98 Hiwassee I might be able to talk him in to letting it go. It maybe has 500-600 miles on it. And that is exagerating.
