    I received these Sunday morning from my neighbor before taking off for La Conner to meet up with Alex Moll for a vintage show/ride. They arrived Thursday afternoon, while I was well on my way to arriving in Cour d'Alene, ID. My neighbor and I watch out for each other as concerns deliveries when either of us are out of town.

    The shoes are really nice, with thin leather soles and a nice, shaped maplewood inner sole - topped with cork at the ball/toe end. Very high-quality - and light in the bargain.

    Daddy needed yet another new pair of shoes:



    Someday I'll get a pair of Marresis in my size and my shoe collection will be complete

    A 1956 (AW) Williams LC1232 crankset, with 47/50 tooth chainrings. No Mustang title, but thrilled all the same. ^ Bet you're looking forward to throw a leg over that sweet vanilla rig, it has some nice details. I'll be interested to know how that Berthoud saddle rides.

    One of the best RDs ever made. Though I don't own any of them.

    Only thing that came for me was 6 1/2 inch nickel plated roller buckles for use building my saddle bags

    Did you know that older SunTour adapter claws will not fit on a Cyclone? I didn't until about a half hour ago when I went to install it on the spare one I removed from a broken unit.
    After the initial moment of panic/disappointment, I realized the bolt threading was the same, so I grabbed my rotary tool and ground down one side of the adapter claw until it was able to provide clearance and essentially made my own Cyclone-compatible-claw. *whew*

    I just got a clamp-on adapter for a 105 triple (braze-on) front derailleur. I've more confidence bidding on Ebay stuff from Taiwan now.

    Yeah, the cyclones are absolutely beautiful. Light, simple and a gorgeous finish. They are one of the prettier derailleurs that I have ever held.

    Brand new, C&V-looking "J&L Classic" saddle. Just your basic Regal clone.

    Saddle.jpg

    Came directly from Taiwan and is going to on my Sekine to help complete the white accenting and replace the super uncomfortable saddle that is on it right now.
    I think I paid $20 including overseas S&H so I figured it was good deal to try out - and for that price, I didn't think I had much to lose.
    Appears to be vinyl over plastic with a little bit of padding but nothing so deep it'll cut off circulation (really hating on gelled seats for this lately...)
    Rails are well machined and sturdy feeling, plastic seems to be of decent quality with a nice bit of flex to it.
    Rivets seem to be decent, but the stapling along the sides on the underside appear to be along a very thin edge of the material, so I suspect I will probably end up having to re-attach with some super-glue at some point. It was cheap, I expected cheap, so not really concerned about that easy repair which might be needed.
    I didn't expect Brooks quality, and certainly wasn't going to pay Brooks prices for a white saddle on a bike that usually gets ridden about 20km a day in fair weather.

    Hopefully I can get it on the bike and take it for a test ride this evening.
