    Parts for DL-1?

    [Accidentally posted first in C&V valuation forum]

    I seem to have acquired a DL-1 frame, and I need a lot of stuff:

    fenders (ahem, mudguards)
    28" rims for rod brakes
    a few of the rod brake assembly components
    (I'd also like to have the full chaincase even though that was not orig spec)

    Also, other stuff that's more standard (saddle, seatpost, grips, etc.)

    My first thought was just to buy a whole Eastman roadster from Yellow Jersey, but it looks like they're not ordering them anymore, and the spare parts are pretty spendy.

    Any place besides YJ importing the Eastman? Ideas for other places to look? (if anyone has any of this stuff they might be willing to part with, let me know)

    Check out Oldroads.com. They have a lot of these items.

    EDIT: Checking their list, it looks like a lot of the stuff they used to have is no longer there. Still, you can try contacting them; they may have some of the stuff you need. Also, check with some of your local bike shops, they may either have the parts or have sources to get them from.

    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    Another forum member passed on to me a box of his spare rod brake bits, which included more pieces than I need. I'll be happy to pass the surplus on; just have to go through it all and figure out exactly which parts I need (I haven't faced this project yet).

    Do you have the bars w/ rod brake levers? I might have one of those under a pile in the basement.

    Thanks, Neal. I did get roller-lever bars and (rusty) brake assembly.

    I posted a list of parts in the C&V valuation forum on this thread.

    Its an expensive project and as I noted there, bottom line, you're better off selling the frame for cash and acquiring a Pashley Sovereign roadster.

    Why not buy a bike that already has everything you want? It seems to me the best way to get the kind of bike you want.

    Flying Pigeon in LA California has most of the parts you asked about. Talk to Josef.
