    Thanks VV,

    I found a cotter in my junk box that fits. The Raleigh nut won't fit it, but at least I have a bike that is rideable now. I'll keep my eyes open for old Raleigh cotters though.

    Are you sure that the bearings are not in the packing material or one of the tubes? I find it hard to believe that the bike would be sent without bearings.

    I am constantly amazed that some people cannot replicate the spelling on the tubing of their bikes.

    This is a WAG, but the fleur de lis and the bleu, blanc, rouge badge may mean Quebec.

    I have a ladies Raleigh Sports with the nice "R" nuts on the cotter pins. It seems that someone in the past got a bit aggressive with the file on the left cotter. The head of the cotter is nearly...

    I think I have the Sports I bought a while back dialed in now. I like it so much that it is my daily rider for everything. I removed the seat bag for repairs, but the saddle is fantastic. I took it...

    If it fit me and I was nearby, I'd be all over that. It looks pristine and the Deore parts are nice.

    Speaking of "333", I have a working top tube "333" stick shifter that I have no use for. It is free for the cost of postage.

    Did you drive from Winnipeg to Toronto for the wheel? If you did, you must have a serious commitment to the project.

    I'm not suggesting a new frame. If you are just getting into this, an older rigid framed bike makes more sense to me. If you like it, you can always buy a new bike with all of the bells and whistles....

    The first mountain bikes were old single speed cruisers modified to take derailleurs and caliper brakes. Your Crosstown is almost a mountain bike as it sits. If you just want to ride on the loose...

    I'm not convinced that the fork is bent from the photo, but the crank arms appear to be seriously long for street use.

    I really like the VO city levers. You are right - they are nearly dead ringers for the originals. Plus they are cheap.

    If anyone in the Baltimore area is looking for a smallish touring bike - this could be it. From the photos, it looks to be in great condition.

    First impression - the photo was taken when there were traces of snow around - it's been listed for quite a while. Stem shifters and turkey levers mean that it is around entry level. If it were my in...

    Did you clean the stem already as a test of how it may finish - it looks pristine? Very good find.

    Post #11 looks like a leaky bathtub or a coffin for someone of small stature.

    If it is 1971, it may be French threaded. Do you know the make of the crank? Then you need to determine if the taper is ISO or JIS.
