    Have been pricing out CR18's for my folder as I want to upgrade my wheels from the light duty HP ones I have to something a little more bombproof.

    Stopped by one of my favourite shops today to check out their new digs and chat with the mechs and asked about 406 rims.

    Came home with some beautiful NOS Rhynolites for less than I would have paid for the CR18's.

    And they are giving me two Suntour cog boards w/ cogs and a bunch of other goodies.

    GIVING.

    Thrift store find today. Bit neglected and will take a LOT of elbow grease to clean up. The sticker was on the chain stays and it listed PHLE1050. I believe that makes it a 1985 PH 10LE 50cm. The specs match the 1985 catalogs. Original down to the tires and Huret Rival derailleurs.
    Hate that the decals are so damaged it otherwise would have cleaned up nice

    Spent the day at the co-op and helped one of our volunteers with his own catch of the day... someone donated a nearly mint 1985 Apollo Club Tourist in in that wonderful green and silver I am so very fond of.

    Was fitted with a Shimano 600 drivetrain with the long cage rear d, 600 pedals, drilled 600 levers with nice hoods, AT50 cantis, and the wheels were Sansin laced 40 / 38 to Araya rims which I hand tuned for him.

    The frame was of course lugged and built on Ishiwata quad butted tubes which is good cause the kid is six foot 2 and probably curbs out at a good 250 pounds and needs a stiff and strong frame under him and after a test ride he said those brakes (fitted with Kool Stops) stopped him better than many disc brakes he has used.

    Of course... nothing is free but we gave him the student / volunteer / welcome to C&V bicycles discount (the price will make you cry) and figure he should be enjoying this bike for years and years to come.

    He really wants to tour and the bike also came with a Jim Blackburn rear touring rack so he is pretty much set up.

    I came home with a few goodies... salvaged some battered but completely functional Shimano 8 speed bar end shifters (think they are 105's) and the adjusters as well as a scruffy LX crankset with some decent mismatched rings.

    Will use the bar ends on my Moulden and might fit that crankset to it while I build up it's Race Face triple.

    My other catch of the day was those Sun Rhynolites and I got one of them built up today... don't think there are many wheels that would be more bombproof than this and it is laced to a Suzue cartridge bearing hub and is rocking a Shimano 600 6 speed block.

    Went to the flea market for the first time in many months, and the place was hoppin'! Bikes I spotted, but didn't buy:
    • 60's gold Phillips Sports step through
    • 80's Trek 800 in perfect condition
    • a very nice Fuji Cambridge IV
    • a '68 Schwinn Stingray Runabout (completely spraypainted silver, and the vendor still wanted $180.)


    My friend could not resist this Super Sport, it's in great condition and appears to have low mileage. If he didn't take it, I don't know that I would have been able to resist...






    I was really tempted by a full oxy-acetlyne rig with a nice cart for $50, but I was a bit relieved that it was gone when I went back. I have enough trouble getting homeowner's insurance as it is I picked up five rolls of self-vulcanizing silicone tape for $1/roll (probably should have taken the entire box...,) some tubes for $1 each, and some NOS canti brake parts. Not a bad day.

    I love those brake levers. Do they work with traditional road brakes?

    I'd imagine they'll work, they were intended for cantilevers. These are missing the pivot screws and one of the adjusters unfortunately. The guy I bought them from seems to specialize in incomplete components

    Super deal on that tape. That's all I use on bar tape ends anymore.

    Yeah, we used it to wrap wiring bundles when I worked on military aircraft. It's good stuff, but crazy expensive... In addition to the colors in the photo, I picked up a roll each of black and clear in 1-3/4" wide, that will be handy if I ever need to fabricate a new radiator hose

    Got up this morning and installed those Shimano bar end shifters... they are a little scruffy but so is the bike and the shifting is flawless.

    They don't look scruffy compared to the hoods! Jeez man, don't you ever wash that thing?

    I clean them a few times a year and it is always a challenge to keep them reasonably white... will be switching them to some 600 aero levers with black hoods and grey ano'd levers as the plan is to powder coat the bike black and put the bike into stealth mode.

    The Exage levers are nice... I like the built in quick releases so might just find black hoods for them.

    Just teasing of course. It doesn't help that those hoods are usually a bit sticky. I have a set of 600 levers with black hoods that I know are filthy, but it doesn't show, so I haven't cleaned them in ages...

    I took my first ride with bar end shifters yesterday (might even be the same Shimano ones)... they are so unbelievably convenient. On a bigger bike at least, they are just there, no reaching, awesome.

    It was a bit amusing when I instinctively tried shifting the front with my right hand.

    They are like dirt magnets... they were pretty grimy when I got them and it took forever to get them cleaned up and it does not take time for them to look like that again.

    I prefer black hoods as even if they get dirty you don't notice it as much.

    I found this for just $7.00!
    Cleaned it up. Changed the cables, bar tape. And here it is! c.1985 Trek 400 series.

    Since the pic was taken I added some red SPD pedals and aero brake levers.

    These are the "Before" and "After" shots.
    I had to travel 5 hours each way to get it. But, beside the gas, time, and buying the previous owner a dinner, I think it was worth the trip.
    Spent about a total of $300.00 fixing it up.
