    want to purchase: raleigh reflectors, head lights, rear fender...

    Hi Everyone:

    I am looking to purchase a few things for my Raleigh DL-1s:

    1. rear mudguard reflectors (2) (I saw some on ebay...but for over $25 each??? Is that a bit pricey?)
    2. rear mudgard (1)
    3. a cool headlamp or two
    4. bike pumps (1 or 2)

    Please let me know if you or any of your friends has some spare parts they'd like to sell.

    (I love my bikes: thanks for everyone who helped me figure out what to choose!)

    Let me know when you find the mother lode of reflectors... I will take at least 6 and NOT at $25 each. I am surprised they are not a repro part yet.

    Are these the round red reflectors in a round white housing shaped to fit the rear mudguard with a central single bolt fixing? If so, I think I may have a pair in unused but "stored for years" condition. If these sound like what you want, please PM me. I think I know where I've put them but have to fix my car so may be a day or two in getting them. Not interested in charging for the reflectors, it's better they are used than stored , so postage & packing only, Pay pal would be fine.

    I contacted Yellow Jersey. They said they had some new reflectors that they are selling in their "roadster" category, but only reflectors that meet current FEDERAL GOV'T standards!!!! (geez: maybe we do have a bloated government. I wonder how much we had to pay for an expert to come up with federal bike reflector guidelines. And could such a guideline to open to a court challenge??? whoa... more tax dollars at work, but I digress...) The repro reflectors are only $4.95 each, but they just don't do a vintage bike justice...

    It's not that I am against safety: In fact, if I go out in the dark, I do have one of those clip on red LED taillights that flashes and that seems like a good safety adjunct. I'd still like to have the option of having the original reflectors.

    Yes. The round reflectors that fit the shape of the mudguard is what I am looking for. Exactly!

    I purchased a new appropriate looking pump from Old Roads for my DL-1. I mainly did it for looks and to prevent pant leg snag on the peg! They are super nice to deal with, and it arrived after ordering very quickly.

    I am presently planning to build new wheels for my DL-1 to incorporate a dynamo hub in the front (if it ever arrives from the UK! Darn that mail bomb plot and airmail package back ups!) and a new S-A 5 speed hub for the rear, in which case, I am thinking of getting a Busch and Muller Lumotec IQ Cyo in silver-- still looks moderately retro, and will provide loads of light. I already have some UK procured aluminum westwood rims ready to go for the project, and a gift certificate for a wheel building class.

    As for silly government regs and reflectors, my poor DL-1 was fitted with reflective stickers on the front forks and rear stays, and I haven't had the energy to pry them off yet, though I really don't like how they look.

    Lastly, I too am considering getting some mud guards from yellow jersey (and moving over my cool rear reflector to the new one)-- my front in in worse shape than my rear one (perhaps it would be worth it to split a pair?)-- but I suppose getting a matching new pair would look better. I am just loath to part with 50 bucks for having less rust on my ride.

    I've priced the Yellow Jersey spare parts for a DL-1 project myself. Those prices add up fast.

    Recently I noticed that you can get a /whole/ Flying Pigeon from Morgan Imports for $150. I know the Eastman roadsters are supposed to be 100% compatible with DL-1s. I wonder about the FP stuff.

    (did you buy that chrome one for about $16.95? I am thinking about it myself.)

    You are going to be popular after that class!

    Lastly, i too am considering getting some mud guards from yellow jersey (and moving over my cool rear reflector to the new one)-- my front in in worse shape than my rear one (perhaps it would be worth it to split a pair?)-- but i suppose getting a matching new pair would look better.

    a very generous member is going to ship me a pair of mudguards, and i think i'll be in good shape after that. I am more interested in the rear, and if i end up drilling holes in a rear for skirt guards, it might make sense to drill a yellow jersey than an original raleigh. Ill keep in mind that you may be looking to split a pair!

    This pump looks and works nice and fits the Raleigh pegs well if you thread in a Presta adapter to give it a little extra tension/length.

    You don't need to go that far. I have a VERY RARE Cat-Eye reflector that you can have for only $75 plus shipping.

    That is one of the rare RI logoed ones, there are not very many of those out there and that one was in nice shape. For someone looking to make a 100 point restoration that would be the only way to go.

    Nice one here, though I expect the price will zoom up pretty quickly.

    I know this may be ancient history ... but is there a company which has evolved into manufacturing something acceptable without going back to originals?

    thanks

    There are several companies still making these bikes in China, India and South America. Yellow Jersey sells parts and if you google Flying Pidgeon you'll find something.

    Yeah, I almost gave up trying to find the parts I needed on that sight once. I persevered, though.
