I bought a '64 Columbia Torpedo from the original owner some years back, guy got it brand new from his folks when he was a kid and swears up and down he didn't change anything, down to tires..frankly he didn't come across as the type to assemble something custom for it.
Well, I discovered the...

Nearly all of my bikes suffer from some sort of bottom bracket issues (not surprising). Either the cones are worn and pitted from the power stroke or the races are jacked up. I want my bikes to ride as good as possible. I've purchased the NOS Rollfast cones on eBay but they don't work...
100 NOS 5/16" bottom bracket ball bearings in original package.
Push those old nasty steel rocks that some call ball bearings out of the cages in your bottom bracket and push these genuine old-stock USA made ball bearings in.
You'll be glad you did.
Enough to freshen up 5 bottom brackets.
Yes I know I know, but I would like a JC Higgins Batwing Light & Bracket, the color is not important Gold would be great but I would probably repaint the light unless it was Gold, there is a black one on eBay BIN for $400 and I think that is a little steep, I've seen nicer ones on here for less...
When I removed the crank and bearings out of a newly acquired LWB Colson, I discover the downtube from the steer tube to the bottom bracket had a cork in it. I think it might have been in there since manufacture. Cork was coated in blue paint just like the original color of the bike. Removed...
I haven't been able to identify this rare frame. It has a split bottom bracket and a rare front "wrap around" head tube sleeve. Cast chain adjuster bases looks Westfield, as well as the trumpet welding of the second bar.
Asking $175 shipped using bikeflights. Thanks, Nelson.
A pretty rare piece that only came on the Monark model GT 497 (boys) or model GT498 (girls) or Airman equivalent. Pics show the '39 Airman that this came from. Lights are shown mounted on bracket but you get only the bracket. $45 shipped or $40 delivered to MLC/AA. PP as F&F or add the 3%...
This bracket is as I got it.The holes for the screws are threaded. It uses normal screws which I do not have and do not know the size. It is for the Elgin Expert speedometer so you can mount it on your fork. I would like $40 shipped for the bracket.
Set #1: a very fine pair of boys Huffman 1940-41, possibly '42, pre-war truss rods with original chrome-plated mounting bracket. Excellent condition: minor surface rust on polished steel rods; bracket retains original chrome, minor wear-through in chrome at expected spots. Only retains one...
Matched pair of Delta Silver Rays in very fine condition. Excellent chrome with some small pinhead clouding spots. Attached to chromed Huffman/Dayton/National Super Streamline mounting bracket. Bracket in excellent condition, appears to be an original, but may be an older repop. Chrome in...
The Unobtainium Batwing!
Decent condition, looks very nice on the outside. Not sure if it's all original, or part original....May have had some work done to bottom, looks like a new battery tray was put in, which has an end cracked and won't hold the battery well, will need repair before it...

I am looking for this bracket for a project bike . I believe it is a fender bracket or a fender/brake bracket to attach between the rear stays. PM if you have one or two !! I need this brake to put a rear Dia Compe brake on my older Schwinn cantilever !
This is a crusty hanging tank bracket. Goes on a mid 1930s motobike tank.
I need one or two more like it - either one bracket to match this one or a pair of two brackets that look like they go together.
Rust or patina is good!
The holes are 2 inches apart, center to center and overall the...
I am looking for a super nice set of '40s Mens Huffan cranks and the correct bottom bracket for my Huffman "Victory Era" bicycle.

Was there a standard width for prewar bikes? I was assuming it would be 68mm, but I just measured my Colson motorbike frame, and it was around 63mm.
Interestingly, 63.5mm is exactly 2 1/2 inches.
I'm wondering because I planned on using modern bmx style cranks and BB for my build and those are...
