    This is incorrect. I have nothing to do with the excellent UK derailer site. From the copyright info at the bottom of his home page, credit appears due to one Michael Sweatman. I live in NYC. The...

    Not mine (I wish! but too small a frame for me) but I came across this image somewhere, an order sheet for a Hetchins in 1963. Sorry it's not a receipt -- should I take it down?

    I hate cleaning chain, chainrings, rear cluster, spokes, pedals.

    I cut brake and shifter housing (and cables) with a Dremel fitted with cutoff wheel, then use it to make the end of the housing...

    I have an AW on a bike with 120 mm OLD and 4-mm-wide dropouts. I bought a 6-1/2" long axle for it, and it's just right. You might get away with 6-1/4", but it might not be so easy to see the...

    It's Thomas Hardy, who besides turning to (excellent) poetry in later life, became a pretty avid cyclist. Put up lots of miles.

    One of my favorites, and none of those silly high-wheelers. Nice bike, and nice photography. Extra points for whomever can identify the famous novelist-poet-cyclist.

    I have an English (without a doubt) frame with Simplex rear dropouts; 1950s or maybe early 60s. A small-volume builder. Has braze-ons for shifters, and brake and derailleur cable housings, but no...

    I like chrome as much as the next bike nut, but I have to agree with John D Thompson's info and sentiments above. Plating (like many bygone arts) is not, generally, what it used to be; it's harder to...

    Really cool bike! The scalloping on the jockey wheels looks like it's intentional (manufactured) rather than wear, if that's what you're concerned about.

    That looks like a really nice English frame. I just bought one myself from Hilary Stone in England, and it has the same dropouts as on yours, both front and rear. I think that you'll find the rear...

    I have an old Cyclo -- meh. A few years back I bought a larger, beefier Suntour one on eBay; much nicer, and a pleasure to use.

    I think that British cyclists were quite eclectic in their choice of components in the 60s, so I wouldn't sweat having a "group" at all. Britain's economy was almost decimated by WWII, and didn't...

    Ah, those people who weren't around, and of a sentient age, in the '70s . . . they think that the Pythons are just a bunch of grizzled old men. "No chance, English bed-wetting types. I burst my...

    You apparently didn't click on the link, which is to the Jaxed site, where you can search for a bike make and keywords, and get results matching, on CL, eBay (etc?).

    The rear dropouts are exactly like those on my 1960s frame that I believe is a Falcon (missing headbadge, but the head tube holes are an exact fit for Falcon headbadge). I think they were made by...

    I refrigerated the BB, then installed in frame (drive side) and whacked the other end of the spindle with a hammer. Dropped right out, but the spindle came out of the bearing, not the BB unit out of...

    Well, I was whacking it. The BB is in the refrigerator now. I'll try that first, with heat applied to the "cup" when threaded into a frame, and of course a block of wood and hammer. Need 4 hands for...
  19. How to remove pressed-on drive-side cup, IRD Quad QB-55 bottom bracket?

    I bought an IRD Quad QB-55 bottom bracket, that I wish to fit with Italian cups (sold separately). I have the Italian cups, but while the non-drive cup slides right off the BB unit, the drive-side...

    H. Lloyd's FAQ advice is that decals need an overcoat for durability, and that powdercoaters don't "do" such clear coat; may or may not be able to handle overcoating with some other product.

    No progress -- involved in some personal non-bike issues recently. I recently bought a very nice 50s English frame that's maybe going to take some time (will post photos soon). And I'm building a...

    Maybe you should cruise midtown, the West Side or the Alphabet Soup off-hours with a bolt-cutter. I don't go looking for trashed cycles, but even so, I see a fair number of the poor forlorn things in...

    I have an old set of Phil Wood hubs, from back when they had a steel center section and aluminum flanges, with the rear having hi-lo flanges.

    You might also remember to use a strong magnet to remove filings, before and after a brass brush and solvent wash; helps keep trash out of the bearings when reassembling.
