    Bob! I was hoping you'd be about when I posted this - likewise greetings to your family!

    How is everything up in New Hampshire? Any new bikes? Brooks saddles? ;)

    Believe me - in my heart (not to mention in my shed) I'm always here - whether I'm posting or not.

    I can't say that I've been able to keep in touch that much, but whatever time work doesn't kill,...

    Unfortunately, I must be losing the Force, for I bought a '59 Paramount frame a few months ago - and it's the first one to have fought me tooth and nail when I tried using the HTS-1. New main...

    Nice to be back. Wish I could take the latest threads from all the forums I participate in and group them into one big feed - but I'd probably go bonkers trying to keep all the details straight....

    Note that it's not marked with the "T," as characteristic of Gran Sport cups. Only the later stuff from the 1980's seemed to pop up with that T mark.

    Frankly, it's probably just another one of...
  7. I just made a video of my 1971 Ford Mustang for a contest, and I'm almost a finalist!

    Video is for a contest, but I put lots of love into both car and video just the same. Yep, some of us bike guys are also car guys. The horror :P

    Not good. I spent two months tacking on an ill-fitting partial, reproduction quarter panel, only to find that the whole quarter (repop and original panel) sits too low at the back because of some bad...

    I'm still around, just busy with other things. Spent a whole evening about two months ago updating all the backed-up registry entries; with any luck, it is under control now.

    Not to bump this thread up needlessly, but the HB stamping is no indication of the builder. I've been able to source an unused, pressed bottom bracket shell bearing the same HB stamping:

    And yet, an unrestored time-capsule in all its single-stage paint glory parked next to an overglossed, over-perfect restoration makes the latter look terrible.

    If the 11.5mm version has threads which stick out past the remover tabs, it's a 6-speed. 5-speeds have threads that end and are flush with the outer raceway/removal recesses.

    Since you are in France, a small bike shop that caters to used bikes may be a viable alternative. Ask them if they have any lightly-used French-threaded BB cups available.

    My serial charts don't go back as far as this bike, but it is most likely a late-1930's Sports with a replacement rear hub and shifter:

    The idea is sound, but wouldn't one would expect a butted frame to buckle - rather than bend - on the central, thin-walled section of the tubing?

    I can see straight-gauge acting as such, but not...

    I believe Jim is working his way to a theory about lugged frames as a strength consideration.

    Long and thin, no. Filleted into the frame, yes - on Alex Singers:

    I wouldn't be too certain that it's the original fork, given the "SB" stamping. That is likely an Ilkeston SBDU (Special Bicycle Development Unit) fork from a Raleigh Team Professional.

    It's an RRA with a replacement fork and cosmetic surgery from a framebuilder. The bottle cage braze-ons are the tipoff, not to mention the lugged seatstay bridge. The repaint is a healthy clue too,...
