    All Nitto stems are forged and forgings are much stronger than castings. The better Nitto stems are cold forged, which makes them stronger yet, because the grain follows the shape of the stem.

    I meant that the cables should be routed behind the bars and the levers are too low.

    Those things bother me. Probably more than they should.

    It's a nice bike, whatever it is.

    Mid seventies decals.

    Misplaced brake levers and too short cables on the wrong side of the bars.

    Does anybody remember Dr. Deltron? He said that he used 60# sand, but carefully.

    The diameter would be 28 millimeters. You can do the math to compute the circumference, but I can't imagine what you could do with it if you had it.

    I don't like the foil original decals. I would be tempted to use the later decals on mine if I ever got it painted.

    I do like what your dad did to the bike.

    My parents bought me a Puch Bergmeister in about 1960. It was copper plated under transparent red paint. The result was beautiful, but the bike really didn't have much else going for it. The frame...

    Radio Shack sells oil-filled syringes. The oil is for things like turntables and tape decks, so it may be a bit thin for hubs. They can easily be refilled, though.

    I like it, except for the unsightly tape under the shifter clamp. It reminds me of the clear plastic covers on Grandma's couch.
