    It's not a "fake" exactly, it's just a mess of decals. I bet "B" was the owner's initial, or something like that.

    Yes, I think the 700's would have been Reynolds and the 900's Columbus.

    I think this was repainted and had these decals applied. If you can get a serial number and more photos of stuff like the seat cluster and other lugs, someone might be able to help figure it out. But...

    The load you can carry is more about the rack than the bike. What rack do you have? If it turns out to be inadequate for what you want, you could always switch it out for a heavier duty rack.

    The frame alone (assuming it's sound) is worth more than $100, guys. I'd be surprised if you couldn't get $200 for the frame. The rest of the bike is kind of a mess, I agree, but if you couldn't sell...

    You'd need to replace the whole axle. I use these. They deter casual thieves and require a special tool to remove, not just a normal hex wrench. Order a spare tool, they're cheap.

    Very cool bike, Russ. Old track bikes are often sought after. I believe rhm has a Drysdale and he may have some more info for you.

    Do you have any original documentation on it? Do you have the...

    It depends a bit on where you are. I think here in NYC that's a $250 bike, but in more rural areas I think it's more like a $150 bike or so. If he offered it to you for $50, give him $100 and both be...

    Well, I have hobbies coming out of my ears. I keep picking up new ones and each one makes my girlfriend a little more exasperated with me. Most of them are in some way "C&V" related, I suppose.

    I think it may be older than '73. The decals are the '69-'72 style. I'm not sure when these were made with Zeus drops and Nervex lugs... My best guess is 1971? Does it have a Carlton decal on the...

    Also, you cannot compare the cost for a rental car from a rural location or in the suburbs to what they cost in the city. Rental cars are MUCH more expensive if you rent in the city than if you rent...

    Do you trust your shop mechanics? Personally I would not trust anybody but myself with a full overhaul on a vintage bike.

    I don't think they're targeting people who will use the cars to commute, they're targeting people who need to take an occasional trip. I live in NYC and didn't have a car until this year when I was...

    I agree with DD, leave the paint as-is.

    I used to keep spreadsheets of costs, but it is just too hard to really keep track of.

    For instance, I buy a bike for $200. Later I part it out and the BB ends up on another bike, the crankset on...

    I have done that routing on 3 or 4 bikes with Sturmey Archer hubs. Works fine. I have also run housing the whole way and that was fine too.

    Totally neat bike. I agree that it's most likely from the 60's and is a Lenton Sports, not a Super Lenton. It really is in amazing condition, I have never seen one in great shape like this. Enjoy it!

    That's what I'm thinking: It was "updated" and repainted in the 80's. The BB cutout seems to match the Super posted above pretty closely.

    I'm not an expert, but I think it may be real.

    I think the fork spade looks bad due to crappy touch up paint.
