    26" Fenders

    I have a pair of aluminized 26" steel fenders with stays. The fenders are decent on the top side, but have quite a bit of surface rust on the bottom (tire side). The stays are quite good - riveted to the fenders, and are meant to be attached to the wheel axle. I know that shipping fenders is...

    Old Sears 10 speed Free Spirit.

    Sears had 3-speed bikes made in Austria by Puch and Steyr (rear hubs licensed from Sturmey Archer). They continued the relationship during the bike boom and had one 10 speed model built with Reynolds 531 tubing (frame sizes were limited and the only color that I can recall was gold).

    Frame Polish

    Good advice - especially the "clean it first" part. Don't try to polish dirty stuff. Do all of the dirty work - dis-assembly, bearings, and touch up first. When the frame is bare you can get into all of the tight places and do it right.

    What is a vintage mountain bike

    I would like to say that the bikes should be presented by era, that is: Klunkers - the first mountain bikes, whether fairly original or modified Steel lugged/fillet brazed frame bikes - no suspension, geared, 26" or 650B wheels Steel welded frame bikes - no suspension, geared, mostly 26" wheels...

    anyone know about this J.C. HIGGINS Barn find

    It is a 3-speed (see the pulley on the top tube), but the brakes, levers, shifter, cables, and such are gone. I would bet the the 3-speed hub still functions, or will after some cleaning. The hub was licensed from Sturmey Archer most likely.

    Can anyone i.d. this old chrome MB?

    I agree that it is a Ross. A Schwinn would have had a badge (drilled head tube).

    I drove by the old Torrington Company factory today...

    It is sad to see a company like Torrington decline. I have watched my very small hometown waste away over the years. The only commercial things left are a post office and a convenience store.
