    That's no simple beginnings - looking good! Have you considered acid dipping the cab and then EDP dip coating it? Did wonders for a friend who restored a Ruxton, and wasn't that much more to the...

    The second photo is pretty clear; doesn't look as if it has an alternate spring locator.

    On the other hand, it looks as if there may be two spring locator holes on the pulley cage. Might be worth...

    It keeps me entertained on the weekend, and then some. Better than doing nothing, with the thought of Monday inevitably lurking in one's otherwise blank mind.

    You really had me there for a second, especially since I knew I was still on BikeForums.

    Oh, and I raise you a pair of SBM intake gaskets.

    Howdy, all!

    Thanks for the kind words Andy, and all. It's been too long, but every individual hobby of mine is a rather demanding mistress. It's either one or the other at any given time.

    Note that it's not marked with the "T," as characteristic of Gran Sport cups. Only the later stuff from the 1980's seemed to pop up with that T mark.

  16. I just made a video of my 1971 Ford Mustang for a contest, and I'm almost a finalist!

    Video is for a contest, but I put lots of love into both car and video just the same. Yep, some of us bike guys are also car guys. The horror :P

    And yet, an unrestored time-capsule in all its single-stage paint glory parked next to an overglossed, over-perfect restoration makes the latter look terrible.

    If the 11.5mm version has threads which stick out past the remover tabs, it's a 6-speed. 5-speeds have threads that end and are flush with the outer raceway/removal recesses.

    Since you are in France, a small bike shop that caters to used bikes may be a viable alternative. Ask them if they have any lightly-used French-threaded BB cups available.
