    My wife still rides her Fuji S-10-S that she bought the first year they were selling in the US ('71 I think). High tensile frame, claw derailleur mount, turkey wings, and steel rims. The only changes...

    I had a Jamis that had had the same portage strap set-up. I think you may have a Jamis. I never checked the serial number history - the bike was too small and I passed it on.

    Well, I am quoting myself. I finished the bike with a pair of purchased VO city levers - another $13. The derailleurs, cables, pedals, black grips, etc all came from my parts stash or were original...

    Since you have one of the barcons out, why not shoot some PBBlaster down the bar tube and let it sit overnight? I would plug the stuck end to keep all of the blaster in there so it can...

    They have probably dried out over time and become hard and slick. Best bet is to find some compatible replacements.

    If it was cheap I would at least take a look at it and take it for a ride. It's bound to be heavy, but I like the look of the double top tube. If you like it feel free to upgrade with a 3 speed hub.

    gna - Oh, and back to dweenk's S3C hub. Is it possible that the brake arm got rotated, so the coaster brake is dragging?

    Good thought! So if the band that secures the brake arm came loose, and...
