    Center-Pull Brakes

    Perhaps more important (using the wrong size should be such an obvious error that if it happens the following won't be much use) is to use a socket ground flat at the entrance; the lead-in chamfers often are as deep as the spanner flats on these thin bolts, a flat ground socket is a little bit...

    Yet another mystery bike

    Think again - I have one (Nervar original equipment). Never trust a french bicycle to be the same as any other french bicycle.

    26 TPI (Raleigh) ally cartridge headsets - small run

    I've just made a tap out of an old 26 TPI fork and run it through a few 24 TPI top-end headset parts. The thread form is pretty good, I think it's well good enough to do the job. I've got the tap mounted on a lathe cross-slide with the part in the chuck, and it's fed in at 26 TPI so you get the...

    Atom rear drum hub - BSC, 40 hole

    This is a pull from a mid-80s Motobecane tandem. It's in excellent condition, see pics. 135mm locknut spacing, 40 hole, BSC freewheel thread. Cones and cups have no - zero - pits or blemishes (I use a loupe, I hate pits). There are nice shiny smooth ball tracks, even width all around. The cones...

    FAVORIT 70s Czech Bike

    That is not the Favorit seatstay cap they used on every other Favorit I've seen. Yours also has more chrome. I think it might be quite "special"; lucky man. Here's what I did with one - the decals were really vinyl from ebay - quite nice quality, I thought (can I name the seller here?). The...

    Huret derailleur set

    Huret Eco, front, rear, and shifters. Removed from a low-use bike. All date codes various weeks of 1982. Dis-assembled, cleaned, lubed, back together, as shown. $50 and I'll pay postage.

    Shimano Positron II (two of 'em, each complete)

    I have a pair of Shimano Positron rear mechs, each complete with black cable, shifter, and the special cable clips. These are take-offs from a pair of mid-80s Peugeot five-speed city bikes that didn't get much use. They are in excellent condition - almost no wear on the jockey wheels inside &...
