    Hello Enthusiasts,

    Here are some in progress photos of my Velo Orange French chain guard. I wanted to use it because I love the styling, but it's only meant to be used with single speed cranks. I...

    Thank you! Do you still refurbish old leather saddles? If so, I have a few for you. Does the price include a custom logo or is that extra? Thanks - Rob

    Thank you everyone for your comments and suggestions. I'll probably not commute full time with it, but I want to ride it to work some of the time.

    Rear hub is an AW 1950. You are correct, they are 32/40s

    The wheels are in fact Dunlop EA1 26 x 1 1/4 rims. I think they were from the factory and used due to post war shortages. Factory stock...
  11. Any suggestions for period correct upgrades? 1964 Olmo Special

    Hello All,

    My questions are:
    Is it worth upgrading this bike with other vintage parts? Will it really make a difference in performance?

    What parts will perform better and still be period...

    I don't know how to identify the hub, but it's a 1950 Sturmy Archer. When I clean the rust off, I'll photograph it.

    I'll polish the front rim to see if it's a Dunlop Lightweight. The wheels fit...

    Having done my first one yesterday in Los Angeles, I would recommend the following:

    Something on the lighter side (due to the hills on the routes)

    Thought it could have been a replacement. It's not aluminum, so it could not look that good if original. Odd how only that part was replaced and other handle bar parts not replaced or at least...

    Thank you! I couldn't believe I actually found one. It will stay in the family. Pretty much everything there is correct and present. Only thing missing and to look for are the Dunlop 27x1 1/4 40/32...

    Thanks! The rear said 1950. I didn't think to look at the front hub. I'll take a look the next time I stop by the shop.
