I like vintage bikes as much as the next guy, but I don't deny the reality of modern tech to try and confirm biases.

Sounds like fun and rewarding projects. I wouldn't want to limit myself to braze on mount FDs, but I can understand the inclination given the tubing size. There are modifications one can do if you...

Pro tip: he keeps smoked brisket wrapped in foil in his back jersey pocket and a water bottle filled with Cote du Rhone. The guy is class all the way.

No, it doesn't prove your point. Which is, I gather, that GCN is biased against steel as a material for bicycle frames. The "point" of the second video I referenced was not about steel, carbon or any...

Another challenge might be finding a shop with the tap (Park is $200 wholesale) that will be willing to use it to cut new threads versus chasing existing threads.

This is about right, but there are a few builders who make/sell custom frames with all the braze-ons and what not for $1800-2200. Not to take away from your projects, which are super fun and I'm sure...

I've encountered that early freehub, but didn't remember it being on the 11.8. I suppose that makes sense considering I replaced whatever wheelset it came to me with in short order.

You (with Schwinn's help) are confusing/misusing the terms cassette, freewheel and freehub. That said, yes, it's likely that your 6 speed freewheel is original.

That's kinda relative, right? Doesn't pretty much every Raleigh of the 70s have a ~57cm top tube regardless of whether it's a 20.5" or 25.5" frame?

Stem, (assume bar), calipers, seatpost, shifters and rear wheel are original. Front hub and brake levers could be original, but I can't tell from the pic. The rest of the components are not original....

The taller the head tube the easier the cable bends. I've done Ergos with cantilevers and centerpulls on 25" frames without crossing cables (not that I object to it). I've since really reduced the...

Better question for a framebuilder. It would certainly make the building of the bike more complicated than a stay for each side of the wheel.

Raleigh is as Raleigh does. I think most people call it "fastback" if the stays simply join the seat tube at the back instead of the sides. That's pretty loose, but fine by me.

Agreed. Perhaps there is not a hard definition, but if the binder bolt isn't integrated into the seat stays I don't refer to it as "fastback".
