Great father-in-law! Don't forget that June 21st is Father's Day! One man's trash another man's treasure...right...one man's trash, any cyclist 6'+'s treasure! Wow! The ultimate recycling of resources!
Almost forgot....probably would sell fast for $150 to $225, depending on the market.

I've got no pics, but I picked up a Miyata 12 speed road bike at a garage sale for $8. Seems nice; it's got a cro-moly frame.

Why use such a nice tubing product and then use a heavy steel chain/spoke guard? I wonder why Aluminum never caught on for these, they used al rims! were post construction derailleurs usually that out of adjustment?
Nice catch.

Its there to protect bike shop owners and manufacturers and everyone else from the lawsuit police. Its still possible to get a derailleur in your spokes even if its adjusted right.

Here is a picture of the Bridgestone T500 I picked up last Friday. It is in really nice shape and rides great. It is a bigger frame than I would normally ride, but when I am up on it, well, it pretty much fits like a glove. I find myself saying this a lot, and then selling, but I really think I am going to keep this one.

It did not come with a seat, so I added a Wrights that I had in the parts bin

As stated above ... lawyers. Note also "Schwinn's unique positive wheel retention clips" on the front wheel.

Schwinn did use small aluminum dork disks on some early '60s derailleur bikes.

Many of these bikes no longer have the spoke protector and they are very hard to find.

That looks very much like an alloy Suntour spoke protector?? I see them all the time. I guess it could be a steely though, looks like it has a few orange tinges on it.,,,,BD

And SG? You know where to ship that thing if you find it's too big? I bet it rides like a bus, and I mean that in a good way, hehe.

It is pretty tall -- I am 5'10" and I can just clear the top tube, but the top tube length and the ride fit is incredibly good.

Can someone refresh me--was there a Team Record sold in the UK made of 531 and a Team Record sold on this side of the pond that was much lower down on the Raleigh totem pole?

Yours looks great--what tubing is on it? My bad eyes see Reynolds stickers.

Maybe this is true, but as long as the adjustment screws are tight, and the derailleur doesn't get bashed in some way, how could it end up in the spokes?

Oh, and the dork disk on my SLT pictured above is steel. I would take it off if I used the wheel for one of my bikes, and give the buyer the choice of keeping it on if I sold it.

On Tuesday I had a chance to stop at a old Schwinn bicycle store that always seemed closed when I was in the area and got to meet the owners (good people) and got to talking about some of the bikes I was working on and I had asked if they had any old stuff they wanted to get rid of and the owner told me he would make me a deal that if I take what he had ready to go I would have to keep coming back when he had more to save him space,I told him No problem and here are a few things I came home with for a total of $20.


A 1939 Schwinn New World

A few 27" wheelsets I needed


A bunch of mismatched wheels some with new tires.

A nice new set of alloy "Stash" bars

And then a friend stopped buy and gave me this really clean AMF 3 speed needing a rear tube and seat,so what do you think a good haul for a Tuesday.

Mine is a Worksop built Reynolds 531, with all Suntour Cyclone components and Weimann 605 brakes. From my research it appears that the Team Record was originally going to be only for the French market but Raleigh scrapped that idea and sold most of them in the UK but it appears as though a few got over the pond to the states. Thankfully one of those few was my size

Even if it did cost $100, my Norman Rapide is not the catch of the day, it's the catch of a lifetime. Can you believe this is 60 years old, and has never been restored?
