Great fun to watch.
I noticed the name Rudge on some of the bikes. My 1st Ten Speed was badged as a Rudge but was the same as the Raleigh Blue Streak. Purchased new in about '61.

Went to Pedal Pusher's in Severna Park MD and Rod Reddish found me an extra long Shimano nut. I will have to drill some to get it to fit the old school Roberts 531 fork but it should work.
