    And now the rest of the story. Let’s see. I have some brazing experience, but never on a bike. I have ambitions to someday build a frame or two for fun so I thought I’d start small. I added cable...

    A Random Overdue Update (long and pic heavy)

    Iíve been offline a while. A year or two ago I had an unfortunate interaction with a vintage bike enthusiast online (not on this forum) and it left a sour taste in my mouth. Admittedly some of the...

    Charlot Constructeur Tandem Teaser

    Earlier this week I picked up this little gem. The pics are crappy because I just found it, but it's cool. Someone put a motor on it, which will likely come off. I'd appreciate any info about Charlot...

    Another possibility is to use Gorilla Tape for rim strips. I know it will probably be frowned on here, but it works well. The tape will rip in a straight line—much like fabric—with a well measured...

    Post Westminster Show & Tell

    I made the 1.5 hour trip to the swap and arrived a few minutes before 9:00am. There was a line, but it was manageable and I was in the door a few minutes after 9:00. This was my first time at this...

  10. What is this thing clamped to the back of a 40's Schwinn light weight?

    The wheel is wood and the tension is adjustable. But what is the purpose? Some sort of funky drag brake?

  18. Is my new Colnago a Master, Mexico or Something Else?

    ISO: Older Silca floor pump. I'm looking for something I can rebuild and maybe repaint, so the gnarlier, the better. I think most of the parts are available, so it doesn't even have to be complete!
