    That's a nice bike! Ahead of it's time too now that everything in the MTB world is going 650b.

    I pulled 3 bikes from a dumpster after a neighbor had vacated. None remotely valuable, but two yielded some low-end decent parts, and one had an interesting Shimano rear disk brake.

    The head badge states MASA, and downtube decals state MASA12, which I believe is a post-England Raleigh brand.

    The frame seems to be high tensile steel, so it must have been a bike sold by a department store, the disk brake being a "premium" feature. I checked the rear disk, and at first look it seems to be true. It has Suntour friction stem shifters, and a Suntour VGT rear derailler. The front derailler is a Suntour Spirt.

    I'm really busy at this time, but ill post pix on the weekend (of the disk brake).

    I picked up this Bridgestone BB-1 for $30. The parts were all rusted and worthless as the bike had been stored outside. The frame was in surprisingly good shape and is now one of my 2 primary commuters. The parts all came from other bikes. I did splurge on the pedals and new cantilever brakes:

    I've not seen a BB-1 before, cool! Nice work creating a commuter. Aware of RB, MB, CB, XO....wonder what BB stands for?

    My junk lady dropped off another 11 bikes this week, most will go right back to her but there are a couple of bikes that will be flip worthy. One of them is a Centurion Lemans RS in poor shape paint wise but the components are fine including the black Dia Compe brake lever hoods which look new.

    Not so lucky I guess. Glad I found out before making a 50+ mile round trip. He refused to look the bike over and give info about it, so I had to pass on it. 531 or high ten, I am no longer interested since he took a "i have three other people interested" tone when I asked a couple of questions about it. Something tells me they will make the drive, only to find it's a high ten model, and not buy. From the color scheme in the ad pictures I am almost certain it was one of these....,,,,BD

    Not a bad bike, just not what I'm looking to buy. I am more selective than I used to be, especially with a running average of 35-40 bikes on the property.

    And it's back up, for $125. Geez. Yep, big flat stamped drops. I am kinda bummed out that it's not the earlier model. I'll live though.

    EDIT: They lowered the price back...

    Yesterday I picked up two items that needed a little TLC. One was an Ideale Model 80 saddle for $5 and a Nashbar Road MKII bike for $35. I am done rehabbing the saddle and am about 75% done with the bike. The bike is in really good shape and I am surprised in the quality of it. The Nitto stem that was on the bike is worth about what I paid for the bike.

    Visited the only bike co-op in the East Valley this afternoon to hunt for items needed for the Raleigh posted previously.

    Lo and behold there was a set of NGC-982 old style low-profile cantilevers for $10 that would fit perfectly. It was like a hundred little parts (exaggerating).
    The arms have eccentric assemblies that rotate to position them up/down in/out. I was a happy bike nerd.

    But once I got home, I found the kit is missing a 'wheeled' Dia Compe straddle hanger.
    mkZO-ZQ6IlKZr0D6-xS3TOg.jpg
    And more importantly, a straddle cable binder bolt assembly. How did I not see that??
    It resembles a brake caliper recessed binder bolt...slips through the end of one of the arms.
    1544205835_afb3f7e11b_o.jpg
    I can only hope it's still in the bottom of the bin.

    I also picked up a Deore DX rear freehub, and 4 FDs....an XTR-M90x, Deore LX-M571, Suntour XCE, and a cool looking Suntour XC for $5 each!

    I wanted to use the Suntour XC on the Raleigh, but after degunking it, I concluded this model defaults to the big chainring. I've not seen one like this before. Pulling the cable draws the cage to the granny ring. Don't know why anyone would desire a 'normal high' MTB FD.

    $(KGrHqRHJ!4FIVDLYN+8BSGnYGONew~~60_12.JPG
    Oh well, it goes into the parts box and the XCE will take its place.

    I finished up the bike. I had to spend $4 in parts to get it on the road.

    That Nashbar looks wonderful! Chromed fork crown too! Sweet. These are very nice riding frames. I have a soft spot for them, since my first real bike was built around a Nashbar sourced sport tourer frame. Champion #2 tubing, fluted seat stay caps like yours, tomato red paint, but no decals. Mine was an early 78 offering. Made in Japan, but their source was never disclosed. (Tsunoda, Merida, Mariushi, Panasonic?)

    I like the color on yours. Don't let the Nashbar insignia throw you, these are very nice quality production frames from Japan.

    The seat stays, chain stays, dropouts and fork are chrome under the paint. It also has dropout adjusting screws. The pedals and seat post are replacements. I also believe the rear derailleur is not original. The FD is Cyclone MKII and the rear is ARX. Overall a nice bike. It is too small for me and doesn't fit anyone else in the family so it is going to be sold.

    I would think that if the FD is original then the rear was probably Cyclone as well because no manufacture that I have ever seen ever put a lesser quality derailleur on the rear vs the front. ARX isn't a bad derailleur though, I have one and it works fine, but the Cyclone was one level up from that one and has a solid reputation for reliability and quick shifts not to mention a bit lighter. Not sure why the rear was replaced, maybe the owner laid the bike down and broke it, or it may have had a fluke part that broke and it couldn't be fixed, but it must have happened shortly after the bike was purchased but after warranty because ARX was made the same time period as the Cyclone Mk II was being made. Word of caution when servicing the ARX is to be real careful with the cable clamp bolt, they had a tendency to strip, not sure if a better bolt could be found to replace it, I haven't had any issue with that bolt yet but it is prudent to be careful when dealing with it.

    This has been a productive weekend for picking up bikes that need a little work. This evening I picked up a mid/late '80s Maruishi Record with Shimano 600 components and a late '80s Peugeot Bordeaux. Set me back $40 for the two. This is the first Maruishi I have owned.

    1974 - 75 Raleigh Pro Track

    I was driving my truck and passed by an old man pushing his shopping cart full of scrap metal down the street when I noticed the chrome on a frame in his cart. So I pulled over to take a look. 1/2 a block away from the scrap yard he was going to. I am not much into building a track bike but I could not let it get melted so I bought it off of him. It was once red that I can tell. Has Campy fork ends and a Campy headset. I can`t find anything wrong with the frame.

    It sure does look like a Raleigh Team Professional Track. Sickeningly nice score, especially where it was headed. Has the same bottom bracket shell as my Professional road bike, and chrome lugs.,,,,BD

    Yours looks beautiful. I would love to see mine restored. I do not have the money to do it right now and the frame is to small for me anyway. 56 cm.

    Dang, that was a very nice score. Congrats are way in order. Put a set of front brakes on (if you can do that without modifying the bike, or get another chrome fork with the brake drill out.) and you would have a sweet streetable fixie.

    Not mine unfortunately, just a pic off of the interwebs, showing what yours probably looked like new. I have two single speed/fixed gear bikes though. One is this one, that I got back through a friend in Lake Charles, a year after I moved away. A 2008 Schwinn SS, which was a hybrid that weighed around 29 pounds. I converted it to single speed, and it's WAY lighter now.

    Before:

    http://www.performancebike.com/image...9-BLB-SIDE.jpg

    After:



    And the mid sixties? Olmo Special fixed gear. I might take this to the vintage ride tomorrow, though some of the riders aren't that swift about "holding their line" while riding a 50 pound cruiser, lol. It could end in disaster.

    Call me a weirdo but I am partial to high normal front derailleurs... if you don't ever plan on using it it would be one more bit to complete and XC / XC Pro groupset I have been putting together.

    As Berto said, these were the only properly designed front derailleurs.

    Do people have the same love for Shimano rapid demise(rise) derailleurs? It made sense on a mtb for sure. I would rather not be stuck out on a trail with a malfunctioning mtb at all, but if I was, I would like for it to default to the big ring in back. It was a little too late in the game to switch tactics though, apparently. They lasted about as long as the "brifter" shifters on mtb's. I had to test ride one of those after a recable, and putting your fingers UNDER the brake lever on a mtb was counterproductive on the trail. Pretty much a dismal idea IMHO. I can't even find a picture of them online??,,,,BD
