    I've got exactly the same model and size of this "tribal" colored Zurich, with the triple crank and the same wheelset. I paid around $400 for mine 5 years ago, and it is my favorite all-around rider...

    FWIW I also prefer silver to brass for lugs and for any sleeved joint that is relatively tight-fitting, because silver rod: 1) melts at a lower temperature;
    and, 2) is more easily drawn by...

    Me too. I've got a well equipped machine shop, including a 6" metal lathe, welding gear, etc., so I can do just about any sort of bike repair you can think of. I don't have a frame straightening jig,...

    Yes, you can do the job with just a spoke wrench and without a truing stand (by leaving the wheel in your bike on a bike stand and using the brake calipers as a reference guide), if you really know...

    If you really want to stop rust, you need to remove the rust from the frame and then coat it with some sort of rust retardant. Frame Saver is meant to be applied to the inside of your frame tubes. It...

    I see a lot of very superficial pitting in the frame steel tubes, due to general neglect, but nothing that looks deep enough to affect the strength of the frame. I'd go with chemical paint removal...

    I reviewed the photo of the bike, and it seems that the rear stays are chromed, so I take that back. I stand by my other comments. It all comes down to whether or not the rear stays are 531 (the...

    It is not a PX10. The fork is not a PX10 531 fork. The rear stays are not chromed, nor are they otherwise consistent with PX 10's. I think this is a model from the early 80's or very late 70's,...

    I've never seen anything like what the pics show...it does look like someone closed the fork DO with a weld. Who knows why? Maybe to "better" hold the front wheel axle in place? Anyhow there are only...

    I really liked the video showing the machining processes. Everything machined by hand except for the CNC sheet metal cutouts for the straps. I'd gladly pay $35 for one.

    The Op's bike looks very much like my Pug "Course." It's even got the same color. It's got a heavier/stiffer frame than the PX10's but it is a great town/commuter bike. Definitely worth fixing up....

    That's a good answer to the OP's question. Unlike those of automobiles, bicycle bearings are easy to disassemble, clean, and relubricate, so there is really little advantage to having Zerk type...

    OK, I didn't know that the first ones were painted. Based on its SN, my smoked chrome version is from '78/79. I guess
    that would be the "VN II," so the OP's must be the "VN I." Although the smoked...

    True. Important to use proper sized wrenches (i.e. re length) when you're not using a torque wrench. Too long and it's easy to over-torque.

    Agreed, not a PX10. But it has a Reynolds 531 sticker (probably main tubes only, and the fork is not R531 either), so this is perhaps one of the PK series bikes, and not a UO-8 series. SL 49D cranks...

    An excellent point! Doing the extension at the top has these advantages, particularly the one in bold type. See my comment about using an internal reinforcement tube, which still applies.

    Very good advice. It won't be strong enough without this internal reinforcement. You'll need to get a section that fits snug into the ID of the seat post (at least 3" long with 1 1/2" inserted into...

    I agree that the fork crown (flat top without the typical Reynolds fillet bar) is not consistent with a PX10. You might also check the fork blades for seams. PX10's had full R531 frames (including...
