    Very cool & thanks for the link! Fun to see the pull chain on the last one, that looks so much like a SA indicator chain!

    I remember seeing derailleur 3-speeds in France and I wonder now if they had round pulleys. But that is maybe a topic for the French 3-speeds page!

    It was common on many derailleurs. My early 1950s Campagnolo Gran Sport derailleur has non-toothed steel pulleys (with ball bearings!), and Huret derailleurs often had at least one non-toothed pulley even into the early 1980s.

    Thanks.

    Presumably cazoo wants to use appropriate 26tpi fasteners, as the fender/rack eyelets are threaded. I don't have a source for you, but I do think that you have the right idea in finding 26tpi fasteners and not jamming something else from the hardware store in there.

    1966 Dunelt done. What do you think?

    Hey all, here is the built up Dunelt that I first posted on page 92 of this thread. I'm beyond happy with how it turned out. It's not perfect cosmetically, but how many of us are at 45? The coolest part for me is, the owner hasn't been on a bike in 25 years and I had no idea. I guess it just hadn't come up in conversation. The maiden voyage was this evening for her, and it was a bit sketchy but her confidence will be back in no time.Mixed Bag 2011 054.jpgMixed Bag 2011 055.jpg

    Good job! And I like to see these bikes wearing their original chrome rims, they are just the right amount of bling to set off the simple paint jobs.

    She's a real beauty! I really like the colour of this machine. Old English 3-speeds are the bees knees atmo.

    How about an Italian English 3 speed? 59 Bianchi Milano Sport with an SA 3 speed. I cannot find anything about this bike other than one post on somebody's blog.

    I'm in the process of cleaning her up and she needs new wheels. Is Sheldon Brown the only place I can get replacement rims - 26 x 1 3/8?

    You can buy CR18 rims in 650A... they seem to be the standard replacement for 26 by 1 3/8 rims and alloy 650A rims of this kind of quality are hard to find.

    I was lucky to receive a small supply of vintage double walled Mavic rims in 650A... these are insanely nice but as far as I know, you can't buy these anymore.

    I was hoping to find aluminum rims. I missed the CR-18 part number. Looks like there are a lot of sources, thx.


    It was on the local CL and I normally wouldn't buy something this rough, but it seemed unusual. There is a lot of rust and most of the decals are shot so I am just doing a clean up to get her on the road. It has really nice hand painted gold pinstriping to go with that black paint.

    Bianchi is best known here for their road bikes but across the pond they manufactured and distributed a wide range of bicycles, many of them with a focus on urban transportation... sort of like Italy's answer to Schwinn or Raleigh.

    Speaking of English 3-speeds:
    Picked this up yesterday; saw it on the Anchorage CL as "1970's Raleigh 3 speed" with a few grainy pics. I'm lucky enough to know folks who fly into Anchorage regularly who could pick it up and (eventually) deliver it to me in Sacramento for free.









    Sturmey Archer says '73, and there is rust everywhere, but not as bad as I thought it would be. The chain guard, rims and the chrome all need work, but the fenders had surprisingly little rust-just paint oxidation and no dents. The Brooks saddle is trashed, but I figured as much from the pictures.

    Looking forward to tearing it apart and getting it cleaned up.

    I just picked up this '70 Rudge Sports off Craigslist and haven't done anything to it yet, except take off the leather saddlebag that needs to be fixed. I haven't seen many other Rudges around here (Boston area) and I just had to have that lovely chainring. The decals are in surprisingly good shape and there isn't too must rust. But the wheels, bottom bracket, and headset are all pretty gummed up and in dire need of servicing. The front of the Brooks saddle unfortunately ripped off as I was riding it to the car. I paid $100 so I hope these issues don't turn into too much of a headache

    Anyone know much about the Rudge Sports? I understand it was one of Raleigh's top-tier 3-speeds, but I can't find much other information on rarity, where is was sold, etc.

    I was hoping to keep all the nuts/bolts to the original measurements. It doesn't seem like these are common enough to find anywhere. Thanks anyway.

    Picked up a 24" Rudge Whitworth frame. Going to build up a set of 700's for some 45 or 47's tire for a plush ride. Drum brakes and 3 speeds will come via SA hubs. Planning on making this my errand runner around town.

    Very nice Rudge, looks to be in great shape and I think you made out-I've seen them from $150 to $250 on CL.
    I assume youve read Sheldon Brown's info on 3-speeds?

    Goodness, that looks like it hasn't been ridden 10 miles. Nice score!

    Neat looking frame Velognome. Any idea on the age?

    Thanks, don't know the age for certian, i was told by the seller 1923. It was a 28" wheeled rod brake bike. The badge reads Rudge Whitworth Limited.

    I'll look forward to seeing how you build this one up!
    Gonna be a workhorse with a nod to it's heritage, definatley not a restoration. What I've decided so far is:

    Brooks saddle
    SA Hub brakes & IGH
    VO's fluted fenders painted black with a white tail
    Full chain case from Yellow Jesey
    Rack? either a period rack with Brooks Bricklane panniers or Wald wire baskets.

    I'll post more when the wheel set gets installed.

    Could you please share your process for painting the V.O. fenders?
