    The Potential of a 2020 Orange Krate: An Evaluation of Original Condition and Potential

    The screw at the terminus of the cable can be your run of the mill brake caliper screw off any normal handbrake setup. The cable sleeve terminator at the barrel nut could also come from the same brake caliper.the threaded piece is in the factory drawing you posted with the note of “b”.

    The Potential of a 2020 Orange Krate: An Evaluation of Original Condition and Potential

    More like this. The cable is now anchored in the forward position and the brake arm still moves forward but the threaded sleeve end/adjuster goes into a pivot barrel at the location where the cable used to terminate.

    65 schwinn stingray

    Try some acetone on a rag to wipe off the black paint. It’s good on spray paint and easy on factory paint.

    The Potential of a 2020 Orange Krate: An Evaluation of Original Condition and Potential

For some reason I remember seeing a matched pair of boys and girls bikes somewhere recently and can’t seem to find them now. Those were noted as being in the same timeframe. Once I decide to move it on I will absolutely list...

    The Potential of a 2020 Orange Krate: An Evaluation of Original Condition and Potential

    Today’s find... sorta

    Been working the deal on this bike since before Covid and finally picked it up today. Does anybody know how to date these things? Great shape needIng only a light cleanup and some new tubes.

    “Pig Bikes”?

    Go for it! You want some 64 bars along with a solo polo seat and square back sissy bar.

    70 starjet Apollo
