    Scorcher is awesome .............. love the rest of your bike pics as well. Wish I was better at eyeing up a good photo spot and lighting.
    Some old bikes........and a few newer ones that don't get ridden very often.

    I've got an extra loop frame DL-1, though I'd jump on the craigslist post above if it's in your area. Mine is a 1967, nothing real special but it's all there. I bought it without thinking about who would ride it. Too small for me, my daughter has 3 bikes already. It's in Saint Paul, MN.

    Hmmmm... My 32 year old Brooks saddle is starting to look like that. Dang, it'd be a drag to have to replace it so soon.

    Bought a 1973 Raleigh LTD-3 off craigslist for the correct seat for my Twenty, and discovered that it was too good to part out. Even has the original uncracked Raleigh Record tires on it. Looks like a nearly new bike, save for the incorrect Schwinn seat and stem that I grabbed for my Superbe. 5th Raleigh.

    Ha-Ha!

    I got a chance to free the seized seat post, bring the seat up about 2.5 inches, and wring it out around the neighborhood this evening.

    The bad news is that the B-72 is a badly wounded warrior now; the good news is that I'm not. [The thick leather didn't allow the post to get thru when it failed over a speed bump that I hit at about 10-15 mph...]

    Well it did tear - and on the first time I had the seat adjusted to my normal height so that I could wring the old bike out a little.

    rhm if you're following this please give me your input in regard to what Velognome said; this guy sez that with failed leather to just fuggitabout it and buy a new saddle: http://livingwiththewebers.com/art/r...leather-saddle

    I have a double leg Trygg kickstand like that on my Sports and it's great. It made the bike much easier to park and lock up without leaning it against stuff and damaging the paint.

    Apparently with enough time and attention to detail it is possible to rebuild the seat. I don't think its been done with a B72 or B66/68 yet but it is something I am contemplating. You might want to take a look at this thread:

    Dipping in paint

    Here you can see the fork from my '69 DL1 was dipped. Also you can see a puddle of paint in the BB. Anyone know what kind of paint it is? Sure is tough stuff.

    Beautiful builds. I've been kicking around building a 3-speed bike with upright bars. If it ever happens, I'll post some pictures.

    I had heard that the Brits used a paint similar to what you find on a charcoal grill.

    Why is there a hole in the lug part of the BB?

    Stove enamel. Dipped in a tank, not sprayed. That's why there's a puddle.

    I heard this paint had rubber in it.

    Hit it with some quality compound and it shines like wet glass!
    There's always room for one more bike!

    The old Hercules Cycle and Motor Co. literature describes using Asphaltum in their black paint.

    The Raleigh paint also gets my vote for most durable. I've had better luck with it lasting than Schwinn, Columbia, or Peugeot.

    Once I got through the deteriorating clear coat the black paint actually did shine up like wet glass. I use 3M rubbing compound and watch the cloth. Brown is clear coat, black is paint.
