    I'm hoping that being hand built helps keep their shape strong but, point taken.

    noglider, Sir_Name and inkandsilver, I sincerely appreciate the wonderful comments. You'd think that a blank canvas is nothing but a joy to develop but it was a delicate build with plenty of...

    x2 :)


    $4,350 is extremely ambitious in my opinion. But, hey, start high, you can always come down, right?

    MAP makes some incredible bicycles. A pal of mine knows Mitch well so he has two of...

    That makes good sense to me.

    Great modern example, Velognome, thanks!
  5. If I add braze-ons, fender/rack mounts, is the frame legally mine?

    Velo Finds posted a bike that caught my attention.

    A 1974 Raleigh Pro made into a city bike up for sale on eBay.

    Upon further inspection, it looks like a fella here in Portland is having his...

    I hate to echo the same statement already mentioned over and over above but I really like this thread too. And I really like that 1950 Raleigh Lenton Tourist!

    You've got a fan club here and we're...

    Once I started seeking the hubs out, I found that they were no longer produced so I began looking at the Electra Ticino bicycles and started plotting a donor bike. But, soon after, eBay not only came...

    I was really skeptical at using something from Electra for this build but after having the chance to have my hands on them, I am extremely impressed. They are of incredible quality. They weren't...

    Chris,

    I measured this a few times because purchasing the largest 650 tires Soma made had me a bit uneasy. Same with the Honjo's. Those are not inexpensive mistakes you want to make! But, the...

    Whoops! So it is. Lucky for me it is functionally impossible the way the setup currently is. In fact, after the shoot, I promptly removed it. It was just for posterity.




    Thanks to you both!...
  11. Thanks to everyone for the kind comments! I know...

    Thanks to everyone for the kind comments! I know it's not everyone's bag, but I appreciate that is looked past and the process as to what went into the build is what comes through.

    Brianinc, that...
  12. 1985 Raleigh Portage - City bike build

    Hey everyone,

    With the help of many inspiring upright city bike conversions I have been keeping track of on C&V over the years (here's looking at you, Voyageur, Shogun, Centurion and Marinoni...

    Nice work! A few more of these and you'll have paid for the bikes and be making straight profit. Sorta like renting a house.
    Great to hear things went well!

    I totally agree, mparker.

    I don't restore bikes for a living. In "real life" I run a bike share program of 250 bicycles (soon to be 400). The Copenhagenize blog put out a graph that perfectly...

    Thanks for posting this discussion, Lascauxcaveman. I have also been considering Spinlister for mid/low level frames as a way to see some sporadic income. I have also thought about paring the service...

    I agree with others, wonderful bike but I'm most impressed by the shots and angles you took. Simply fantastic. I've spent all weekend shooting bicycles and I think many forget how challenging it can...

    Depending on date and time, I would like to attend as well.

    One thing. Last time, we had a nice leisurely ride with good people and fluid conversation. I'm guessing the next ride will be similar....

    How come I have this sneaky suspicion that this is a re-badged bike?

    Either way, I'd still say cannibalize it for the group and see if you can turn a buck or two on the frame.

    I have these in black. They are really comfortable and have a wonderful high-end feeling. After a season of riding, I did hand wash them which made a significant difference. The only thing I wish...

    +1 from me too on what The Golden Boy says about the original post.

    Here's my example.

    Thanks everyone!
    The consensus seems to be using a P-clamp then fabricate the rest. The bracket that came with the guard won't reach either from the seatstay or the chain stay. I'll need something...
