    Sold Fender Rivet Tool

    Ah... Still too many things going too fast, but I've sold things too fast myself. Tried to give it at least 24 hours after that.

    Again, I thought deal or no deal was supposed to run for. 24 hours…

    Pedals with shield symbol

    I thought Union, but was thrown off by the made in USA. I thought they were a German company... They did briefly make pedals in Olney, Ill: https://www.marwi-eu.com/history.php And some more details...

    Chinese "leather" 3 spring saddles- don't buy one!

    I'm down to one Brooks saddle for a current project, and AliExpress sent me a notice that an old-timey looking saddle was on sale for 20.00 US delivered. Curiosity get the better of me, and I ordered one. Sadly, it's a lousy saddle. The springs are really soft and wiggle sideways as you...

    please Help ID my childhood Klunker

    A good forum for German bikes is at: https://www.altesrad.net/ They are always interested in the swoopy styled export bikes. Domestic market German muscle bikes were called "bonanzarad" and there are some forums devoted to them out there, but I don't know where...

    please Help ID my childhood Klunker

    German manufacturers were pretty obsessive about at least labeling/stamping parts with their name. I can't say they made all of their parts in house but they liked to give that impression.

    Worksman pedal extenders, great product for wide feet/hips

    I picked up a set of pedal extenders/ adapters on eBay for a current project- a ca. 1899-1905 Rambler frankenbike. I found a nicely rounded 1940's Schwinn cranks, but the nice 1/2" chrome Raleigh 501 style pedals I got from eBay years ago turned out to be two lefts.... So some other 9/16...

    Making handle bar grips from a bowling ball containing Vulcanite Plastic or from other materials

    A favorite bicycle reconstruction blog of mine talks about finding old Lignum Vitae lawn bowling balls as grip material- a very hard and very tough wood that emphatically won't shatter on impact. Old materials are out there if you get smart and crafty! http://geared-facile.blogspot.com/

    A source for cloth wire, switches, etc...

    I ran across an antique car electrical supply house that carries old style fabric covered wire, switches, bulb sockets, etc. I've never ordered from them, but it looks like they carry useful bits for bike electrical systems: https://www.store.ynzyesterdaysparts.com/

    Homemade? Listed near me

    It looks home made, but that is a lot of work to put into something like that. I'm intrigued.

    Seat hardware needed

    Looks like a hard tire safety era bit- could be difficult and pricey to find. What is it going on?

    Any Information on Allen Motorized Bicycle, San Francisco, California? Circa 1908-1910

    That stretch of Point Lobos Avenue is now Geary Boulevard, a bit of local history I did not know!

    1910 Vega Path Racer Project

    You can rebuild the original saddle- there are lots of tutorials on the web. A new plywood core can be made. A sewing machine is needed for the cover, or maybe a local shoe repair man or your source in Serbia could help?
