    Cleaned lubed and polished the bike. I found a Suntour GT RD long cage in the $5 bin at the LBS. I put an extra set of pedals I had on the bike and bought a new chain. The bike rides great. Will be listing it on CL tomorrow.

    Picked up this Carlton at a nearby LBS today. Bike is actually complete, but disassembled. Full Reynolds 531 with butted tubes, interesting lug work, wrap around stays. Most of the drive components are Campy. Williams cottered crankset. I am guessing early 1960s.

    They were throwing it away? I would be driving by that shop a few times a day.

    Oh that is sweet, Thrifty Bill - That is one heckuva find for a BIKE STORE! The LBS's around here just stock ridiculously expensive modern bikes made in China. No C&V possibilities at all.

    Slight correction, sorry my posting was unclear. While I picked the bike up from the LBS, it was not in the garbage. Owner held it for me figuring I would be interested (I bought a 1979 Trek 936 from him last year). I am the local vintage bike nut around here. I paid him a small amount for it, so it wasn't free (but reasonable for sure). Paper sticking out the head tube is an original build sheet from Carlton. Most of the sheet is deteriorated, but it is still interesting.

    Added pic of non-drive side rear drop out serial number. J 1571

    No idea how it decodes.

    My favorite (and oldest- 1986) bike was found at my LBS (well, the frame)... someone had bought the bike for the wheelset and didn't want the frame. It was just hanging out at the LBS for a while until I finally asked about it.

    Here is a picture of my garbage find 1984 Schwinn Le tour Lux Touring bike all cleaned up and ready to sell. If I make it look any nicer I will just want to keep her. I should never pick up flip bikes in my size.

    I bought bike parts sans frameset to complete a Peugeot frame I had acquired last year. I messed up the frame, it was probably French threading so I bought a Puch Pacifica frameset on Ebay.
    i'm letting a friend ride her a bit, he might buy her at cost.

    It was a little small for anyone in our house but my 10 year old great nephew was ready to upsize... I was given this mid nineties Norco Jammer and delivered it to him today after making sure this little used bike was running like a top.

    We stashed it and gave him some map coordinates (he is into geocaching) and his mind was blown... he needed a good bike so he can roll with his dad and I on the trails.

    That's a cool way for him to find it. Great idea!

    My CL pickings for the day, $135 for the pair, bought both from the same guy this morning:

    Rather plebian but pristine Raleigh USA Olympian, 555sl tubing which I'm guessing the first step up from Hi-Ten; it's not real light. I already have a customer who wants this one once I check and repack all the bearings:


    It has a groovy integrated flickstand/cablestop on teh downtube, which I've never seen before:


    But the one I was actually interested in is this just-my-size 1981 (I think? Can anyone verify that for me?) Motobecane Jubile Sport, in almost as nice shape as the Raleigh and much lighter at 24lbs, once I lifted the toe clips, luggage and Zefal HP pump that came with it. It's my first taste of Vitus (888) tubing and I'm hungry for more! Hopefully the gale currently blowing through town will die down tomorrow and I can take this French thing on a proper jaunt in the countryside.


    Just one E.

    Just a few interesting parts I pulled off a dumper bike.

    small haul 001.jpgThe Shimano Shift levers are known as well as the Hunt Wilde bar ends. The brake levers are unknown, alloy bodies with steel handles. The stem is alloy from Japan with WIN marked on it sized .833.

    Not much compared to other hauls but I see these filling a place in a few project's down the road.

    Friends were going to toss a 1994 Rockhopper Sport. It was in a box, disassembled. Picked it up this morning and put it together this afternoon. Needs a thorough cleaning, a little shifter work and a plug for the right bar end, but it's completely sound and rides great. Too small for me -- I may try mounting 24" wheels on it and giving it to my godson.



    (And now I see I goofed up the rear derailleur cable routing. Ah, well. It can wait.)

    Picked this up the other day for cheap at an early garage sale, '73 Schwinn Super Sport:




    Shame that Schwinn put an ungodly heavy one piece crank and a braze for a kickstand on these. The filet brazed frame is actually pretty nice... This appeared to be well loved at one point and then set aside, bar ends and a 1st Gen Shimano Crane rear der added by original owner. Cleaned up (not touched up yet), tuned, and lubed; just waiting for tires to come in and it's going to a buddy of mine.

    M M Cycle

    So not saved from the dump, but picked up off of CL for a song.

    I will need ya'lls help on figuring out more of about the bike from M M Cycles (apparently MKM cycles is the same?). Photos without further ado...



    M M Cycles Ltd Headbadge is the only branding on the bike...except,

    531 on the Fork. Nervex Pro Lugs?

    Odd mixture of parts: Dura-Ace Brakes and Levers

    SR Royal Panto Seapost, more nice lug work

    Sugino Panto Crankset

    Cyclone GT Rear, Cyclone on the front.

    And, the icing on the cake....

    Still smooth as butter, Phils. My first.

    Oh, and it is my size.

    That is a great catch! What type of saddle is it? I'd pop some chrome fenders on that bike and ride it all day long, nice.

    Thanks for the link; I have bookmarked it for future use. Looks like mine is very likely an '82, (not '81) based on the saddle and "gunmetal grey" color choice mentioned in '82.

    At some point the Blue Line RD was swapped for a Vx (which is ok, since I have both long and short cage BLs in my parts bin) and the cool stitched leather bar wrap was replaced by crappy black foam (which is not OK )

    yes, I think they are Nervex pro. At least, I had a bike with the same and I was told that's what they were.

    That MKM is sweet, nice Phil Hubs.

    I picked up this Italian from the original owner, she said it was custom made for her when she lived in Italy. Some Campy ITM, 3ttt, Miche, Nisi, and Ofmega parts.

    I saved her from the dumpster 7 years ago, crashed her in 2012 and she has been semi retired until today as I built her back up this morning... she is still one of my best catches and favourite bikes of all time.
