Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I bought this bike from anther CABE member. The bike arrived very quickly so I was able to start in on it!
Straightened out the left side pedal ( a little better), that was a bit banged up. I should have taken a "before photo". LOL
I am lookin for a mate to this pedal or will trade towards a matched set in similar condition, from the time period.

and cleaned up a headlamp for the Dutch Gazelle.

the headlamp had totally ruined paint on it but once I finished cleaning all the old finish, rot and crud off I don't think I have the heart to paint it.

information on these Philips lamps is pretty thin on the ground but it seems to have been made somewhere between the 30s and the 50s.

the little Philips logo on top even lights when the lamp is on, too cool!

Been doing some work on this recently acquired 55 Raleigh Deluxe Sports. I can't stand gumwall tires so put the original front wheel back on with some new black Kendas. Gave it my special hand rubbed oil treatment to clean/brighten it up a bit. Also a longer seatpost with proper Brooks B72 were added.

This bike was owned by a lifelong mechanic and is in pretty good riding shape as found. Just getting it more to my liking. Came equipped with hybrid drivetrain. Still need to make some small adjustments and fine tune. Hoping to have it ready for Tweed Ride Denver on Saturday night!
Black tyres look great , looks like you changed fr wheel to correct Westwood also. Nice tidy up

Finally riding a big boys bike
Before taking the f’ugly 4 gill
on it shakedown ride with its new skip tooth setup, I spent and hour or so dressing/filing the sharp edges off the Ichi 11t sprocket. It now runs quieter although I’m not sure of the longevity of this sprocket as the metal is very soft. I will need to monitor how it wears.

Sweet sprocket! Maybe after it breaks in take it off and heat treat it to harden the metal. Hopefully it’s a high carbon steel otherwise it won’t harden
