The fork is bent.
I've been waiting for those to go on sale.:rolleyes:
Very nice? Different?
We were expecting a hallelujah moment.;)
^ No need for Ipecac.:twitchy:
You can call it whatever you want... but it will still be a fixie.:D
A trick I learned here (can't remember from who) is to use zip ties on either side of the valve after mounting and inflating the tire to make sure you get good adhesion in this area.
I'm not sure what this is. The seat stays are not the same as early TC's and it has a chrome fork. If it is a TC, it's a later one.
I've never seen down tube shifters mounted on the top tube before. :roflmao2:
I really don't know how to describe them, but they are head and shoulders above Campy shifters.
I would price it at $800 +/-.
It looks nice but there are some issues that are probably holding it back. The crank is a mis-match, the seller has little feedback, tires are flat, no brake hoods, bike needs a good cleaning and...
Now you have to post photos.
They turn up on eBay often. You'll probably have to get separate parts though.
This is the first time I've seen this thread... what an elegant solution to fitting a NR rear to a Simplex dropout. You say you are no machinist rootboy but I disagree; that is fine work.

I was quite apprehensive about gluing on tubulars the first time as well. This is good as it makes you go slowly and check your work. Watch a couple of videos and follow the instructions and it...
I have Vittoria Corsa Evo SC's on my bikes. They look correct and ride like a dream. Look around and you can find them for about $120/pair. Ribble had them on sale a few weeks ago for less the...
Here a couple on Amazon that look interesting.

Bicycle Classics has them.
Vintage Bicycle Parts : Accessories
Sold at $13,300. Seller has zero feedback and winning bidder has a total of 2 feedbacks. Something just seems off to me.:notamused:
I think the price is reasonable for a full 531 frame and the included parts, especially in Portland. As long as you're comfortable with the limitations regarding the availability of French...
I feel so dirty now.
Growlers mean something SOOO different now than when I was young.:twitchy:
