    With all due respect, I will defer to someone who's more deserving and/ or worthy.

    You are absolutely correct; my egregious error.

    I'll be honest; these wrenches are in service, and were pulled from their place on my bench for the photo. If you're looking for rounded flats and other distortion, well... that's not the case with...

    Jim,

    It's the same 'relationship' as Quill stems... why a 22.2mm stem is classified as 1", a 25.4mm stem is 1⅛", and a 28.6mm stem is a 1¼".

    Same thing with F. DR clamps... 28.6mm is called 1",...

    I was going by the outward 'flare' at the bottom of the drops. The bars on my '83 600 look very similar.

    Jim,

    If the Seller is calling the Clamp Size 1⅛", there is a possibility that they are quoting the 31.8mm dimension commonly associated with that fractional measurement. If it's an old Simplex...

    That is correct; you could also take a ruler and measure the width of the rim just to be sure.

    Welcome to the Forums, Steve!

    In a nutshell, you need a 700c rear wheel with a 19mm wide rim (or as close as you can get to 19mm). The important thing is to also count the number of sprockets on...

    I still have mine, too. It rests, with its metal clip, in my apron pocket; a little piece of vintage 'cycle flair' that still works and gathers comments every time I use it.

    Don't forget the red stripes on the sidewalls, įla 60's and early 70's Hot Wheels.

    lostarchitect - awesome specimen! A perfect example of 'a diamond in the rough'; to the casual eye, not much sticks out. To the discerning velophile, the straight bladed fork is a dead giveaway that...

    If you want a quality ¼" ratchet, get either a Snap-On, MAC, or NAPA Balkamp. In most cases, one can find these at any flea market or auto parts swap. Yes, they hold their value because they're worth...

    Road: 11 - 28 (28/38/50 BioPace chain rings).

    MTB: 11 - 32 (26/36/48 BioPace chain rings).

    Contrary to popular belief, 8 speed (and its predecessors) isn't dead.

    Judging by the photo showing the Cantilever arches and plastic covered metal levers, I would estimate that they're 300 or 400 LX integrated levers & pods.

    thumpic,

    Try your local bike co-op... you might be able to find a pair from an old set of levers.

    The shifters say 7 speed, so go for it. You should stick with a 7 speed SunTour freewheel, though. It might work with a Shimano 7 speed cassette. Maybe the original FW was replaced with a 6 speed...
