    Finally, some long needed clarity on British threading standards! In the States, we find old door locks and hinge fasteners with a bizarre threading that I've always wondered if it too, is a British...

    Jeweler's Saw!! But it takes a little practice to be able to use. The fender must be definitely off the bike! A jewelers saw is used like a woodworker's "coping saw". They cut on the down stroke....

    I had one of these! It was impossible to get the clamp tight enough to prevent the light from shifting down from the mildest of bumps. As for the weird square battery, I dismantled one to find...

    Looks like the one I had excepting for the Chroming- mine had matching painted fenders and chain guard. The only thing not to like is the absence of the pulley/ fulcrum set up. There is a full...

    Reading this thread has made me feel much better about my situation! I have "only" 4 ridable bikes and one as a long term, i.e., "stalled" project. Recently though, I donated 5 bikes to the local...

    You seem to have the rare Gran Sport with forged drop outs (probably Zeus, to boot). Most o the Gran Sports that I have seen have only stamped drop outs.

    I'd bet good money that she is selling off her ex's stuff from the storage unit. If it were hers, she would probably have used the term "pannier" and have known to photograph from the drive side.
