    I have been working on a very rough Raleigh Sports that I found a couple of months ago. I stripped it and hung it in the 2nd floor joists of the garage for a while.

    Maybe built in 1980, primed, and painted and shipped in 1982? It could happen with Schwinn.

    I removed the jig tails from under the bar wrap and re-wrapped with the same tape. I think I now know why the PO put the extra padding there. He had put 23mm Gatorskins on the wheels, and they give a...

    It sounds like you've thought this project out for a while. Are you going to use an Ashtabula crankset, or an adapter for cotterless 3 piece?

    Well I picked up the 420 today. Other than some dirt and a small ding in the down tube, the paint is very good. There are far fewer chips than I expected (Imron is tough). The rear wheel needs to be...

    Is this what you need? Rod Draw Bolts ? Flying Pigeon LA

    AFAIK, the Flying Pigeon is a clone of the Raleigh DL-1, so these may work. Bad news is that they are out of stock.

    I replaced the tires & tubes today with a couple of Specialized tires from the stash - they don't match, but pass the 10 foot test OK. The problem is that after I had the rear tire installed, I...

    I got it for the low end of what you said it was worth. It was in better shape than I thought from the seller's photo, so I am happy.

    Is this for a UO-8? They were 22mm with shim, and 25.4 without shim as I recall. You may have a better chance of finding the 25.4.

    Peugeot PH 501?

    I found a Peugeot on CL that has been sitting for about 3 weeks. The non-drive side photo doesn't help much, but it appears to be a PH 501 from 1985. I believe these were internally brazed frames of...

    Robbie,

    This sounds more like an anti-union rant than a reasoned comment. Just had to say so.

    I do like the dog lock - they don't have to be mean, only large enough to cause a thief to think twice. Only problem is, you can't chain them to your bike very long.
