    My experience is that not all Ofmega-made cranks follow the weird Ofmega pattern. Later production Avocet certainly didn't.

    Those are most likely made by Ofmega, which also made Avocet's cranks:

    You'd be hard-pressed to fine a better hub, modern or vintage, than that Campagnolo Record hub.

    The seller of that freewheel states that it is a "British Threaded 6 Speed Freewheel" so it should work fine, assuming your axle is long enough for the 6-speed block. I've bought stuff from him...

    The explicit marking only started in the late 1970s; the OP's hub may be older than that. Prior to the mid-70s, the hubs were marked by the presence or absence of a groove on the shell just behind...

    I've not tried it myself, but if there's a problem I doubt it would be difficult to file the opening to fit the Campagnolo shoe guide.

    There's not much to rust on a 1986 Trek 1500 -- the frame is aluminum, and most of the components are as well, with the exception of the chain, cluster, and some of the fasteners. Buy a new chain and...

    The gear ratios (0.625/0.75/1.0) are the only issue I have with my S3X. I'd rather have the ASC ratios (0.75/0.9/1.0), personally. But ASC hubs are ridiculously expensive. I suspect if there were...

    All the Schwinns I've seen from that era used brass to attach those fittings. What does it look like? Now that the paint is all burned off you should be able to determine what material was used.

    The asking price is far too optimistic, IMO, given their condition, but these are relatively rare pedals and could respond nicely to a little TLC. There is a "Make an Offer" button:

    Not so much "wacky" as overly optimistic. The wheels aren't original, and would have made the package a little more attractive, IMO. That is the original "death fork" and as such should be replaced....

    No, not if your goal is to replace the bottom bracket. But if you simply want to use a different, e.g. cotterless instead of cottered, crank, you can usually re-use the cups and just replace the...

    It can be fixed, but it's a lot of work and likely not worth it unless you can do the work yourself.

    Yeah, High Cliff is the only significant hill for miles around. There a couple short & steep roads over the drumlins by Hortonville, but they're not a long or tall as High Cliff.
