    I'm quite happy with my roof rack on the mouse car (Scion xB), the boxiness of the car is really well suited to that kind of setup. It does have a couple of, don't want to call them negatives, let's...

    I was lucky. Before I got back into restoring 3-speeds, I'd gone through twelve years of vintage Triumph and BSA ownership. I not only had Whitworth, I spoke Whitworth fluently.

    Crank is a Varsity/Continental/Super Sport. Bars would have been the same, and I seem to remember getting some in the shop with the Schwinn "S" branded stem on them. Unless you're determined to be...

    You set your price and put the bike up for sale. If you get it, terrific. If you get it very quickly, then maybe you under-priced it a bit. However that's what you wanted, so revel in having...

    Pick up any old Sun Tour with the claw hanger, as your bike doesn't have a brazed on derailleur hanger. This was a very popular upgrade back in the day. Looking around you can probably find a Sun...
