    I just wanted to note, in my self-serving way, that I have a 60 cm Mistral frame (circa 1985) listed inn the "for sale" thread--a pending sale has fallen through....

    Holdsworth Mistral circa 1985

    It's time to move this nice old Holdsworth Mistral frame on to a new owner. It's spaced for a 120 hub and has Campagnolo dropouts and a Tange headset with some kind of cartridge bottom bracket. It...

    Welcome to the forums!

    I can't say for sure that it will fit, but I suspect that it will. The Superbe fender is probably a little different than the Sprite fender in terms of styling, but that may...

    Can't we argue about whether the correct styling is MAFAC, Mafac, M.A.F.A.C., or something else? That's sure to be a lot of fun.

    I'm rousing this thread from a five-year coma because I recently came up with what seems to me like a fairly neat solution to the Miyata 1000 seatpost binder-bolt problem, since the fitting on the...

    Well, I was wrong--34 is definitely young. In fact, it's real young.

    Hi Allend,

    Many thanks for all that. There is a Mistral decal on the top tube--you can barely see it in the photo I posted, where it just looks like a scrape. Let me know if you'd like to see a...

    Mystery Mistral

    Here are a couple of images of a Holdsworth Mistral frame I'm helping a local high schooler build up. He couldn't care less exactly when it was made, and there's no good reason why he...

    Yeah, that's pretty much how it works. I've always assumed that someone who has been hanging around these parts for a minimum of a few hundred posts is probably trustworthy.

    Thanks, I see your point now. But if bigger pulleys are better, why aren't 52 mm pulleys standard? It seems odd to me that Suntour added that one big pulley to the Cyclone just for Schwinn, did it...

    No, it doesn't seem to need it. And it's evidently not a user modification--the Schwinn catalog describes the larger pulley as a feature for that year, though it doesn't really say how or why it's...

    "Large Pulley" Suntour Cyclone?

    I recently acquired a 1985 Schwinn Super Le Tour, dirty but in excellent shape. Much too small for me but well worth fixing up for someone.

    The badly-written catalog description for that model and...
