    I drove the original rivets out on an open jawed vise with a very small nail set (maybe a punch would have been better). The rivets are only sightly peened, so it is easy to remove them. Putting it...

    That is a low end Univega. It probably has a high tensile steel frame with steel rims. It looks to be in decent condition, but unless you know how to work on bikes, factor in at least another $100 to...

    Big Chief, VV, & Gasbag

    I just bought the springs (thanks BC). I think I have the tools, skill, and vocabulary to repair the trigger. If not, I'll contact GB and request the most effective curses.

    Does anyone know if Sturmey Archer shifter pawl springs are available. I checked Harris Cyclery's website, but they only had springs for the hubs. Mine has this type of spring.

    At first glance, I would have said no, but now that you point it out, I would say possibly at the junction of the steerer tube and the fork crown. If it is bent that is a bummer - do you have a fork...

    For $24 including shipping - buy it and try it. If nothing else, it looks good on the wall of your garage.

    I have had several bikes that used a clamp and a forked foot to hold the pump. Perhaps Peugeot supplied a braze-on for one end of the pump and utilized a foot at the other end?

    I have a no-name rack. I bought 2 of them and put one on a Nishiki Riviera GT. The other is surplus - if interested, PM me.

    I think Japanese also. A real smorgasbord of parts, so I would not rely on those date codes. I'm thinking mid-range frame - what is the seat post diameter?

    I would look for a date code on the saddle frame. The saddle appears to be old enough to be original. Too bad about the leather seat.
