    That's definitely one of the nicer Crescents, and I'd be really surprised if it wasn't Reynolds 531.

    I've been looking for one of the nicer Crescents or Monarks from this time frame since I moved...

    So... what you really need is a psychologist for your mechanic?

    This engineer can't be bothered. He's about to make ladies uncomfortable at a party.

    Sorry about your bike. It looks both nice and very practical.

    If your bike is like similar bikes found here in Sweden, your dropouts are probably forward-facing. That is, the wheel falls out...

    When I damaged the original Cyclone on my '78 about a year ago, I put on a Shimano Acera, which I suppose is mediocre, but it works well with the large range, modern chain and modern 8 speed cassette...

    Check out closeout bags from Jandd. I bought a "color blemish" Iniki about ten years ago and recently replaced the strap's pad and some of the plastic buckles. It's never leaked in the rain. I...

    Most of the members here are American (or Canadian). Our Centurion disappeared about 25 years ago. It was a shock to me to see Centurion well and alive here in Europe when I moved to Sweden last...

    You could have trouble when you try to leave the Schengen area if you've overstayed your welcome.

    When I originally posted I was staying with my family in Pennsylvania, not too far from Allentown. Now I'm back in Sweden.

    I'm not interested in selling it, or I'd have nothing to ride when I...

    Ten years ago I bought a 2nd-quality Jandd Iniki in some toned-down colors and used it daily for at least the first five years. Recently for a small amount of money I replaced the strap-pad and some...

    Ignore anyone who tells you that any one style is inherently better than another without understanding whatever problem you're trying to solve.

    I've had a couple Sunrace 8-speed cassettes that have worked good, and looked good in their nickel plating, but I have no experience with the internal mechanicals of the freewheels.

    I don't think the safety levers are stock, but you probably already knew that. :-)

    That's a really great build. The only thing I don't care for is On One's hurtful use of that term on the rims, which the forum has apparently screened.
