    Ebay gets a bad rap because, as a seller, you no longer have much in the way of "rights".

    A lot of changes over the years have made ebay more seller-unfriendly, especially when it comes to the...

    I totally agree on both counts, but to their credit, ESGE offered frame builders "bridge" mounts that allowed a proper attachment for the kickstand and racks that they sold.

    Let me get this out of the way first, the metal hose clamps look kind of ridiculous to me and likely damaged the paint upon installation.

    It's a beautiful frame in a nice color. The foil decal...

    Yes, but probably won't help out here.

    The BMX crowd use hi-rise bars, not stems, to get the grips up high, and the reach of BMX stems is typically very short.

    Also, BMX stems often have 7/8"...

    Looks to me to be the equivalent (although lugless) model of what was previously called the UO-9 (was designated "Super Sport" in 1979).

    Road bars that have a 25.4mm clamp diameter should work if the stem's clamp isn't too wide to slide past the bends. Most alloy stems wouldn't have any issues with sliding the bar through.

    Would you believe I was a Cornet player in Jr. High?

    I can't remember the brand though. I sold it and bought a baritone.

    Hopefully, whatever brake pads that you have on the Continental will go quietly about their business of gripping the new alloy rims effectively.

    Any anodize on the new rims might also cause poor...

    Yes, the Armadillos are well made, tough and flat-resistant.

    Slightly narrower than the 27" Gatorskins I've used, but more resistant to cuts from any angle and of course with a stiffer casing.

    Let me know how the material holds up for a run of those 8s freehub threadless axle bearing cones.

    The Peugeots of this era are known for having the relaxed frame angles of a touring bike, so assuming this bike isn't at all on the small side for you, it should be versatile enough for almost any...

    A wider rim will appreciably widen a bike tire's casing and flatten the tread profile, but actually also slightly increases the height of the tread above the rim (at least it does when the original...

    The OP's bike is a mystery to me, I can't identify any frame detail features in common with either my 1980's or ~1990-model Torelli.

    Both of my bikes were sold with lower-level Campag equipment,...

    That's what I got got when I measured the 1-1/4" Paselas.

    Michelin World Tours in the same size also measure about 32mm, making these two tires the fattest 27" tires available.

    These are one of my favorite tires, not too heavy and few flats for me.

    They are actually Cheng Shin (CST) C-740, which can be purchased in many solid colors.

    They measure only about 28.5mm...

    That's an interesting crank for sure.

    First, it looks like an early Sugino Maxy crank, right down to the pattern of the big ring's cutouts and likely the bolt pattern as well, which I believe...

    Spindle appears in fine condition, the alloy arm can do it no harm.

    Not a high-end spindle of course, but an accurate JIS taper I'm sure.

    One thing though about nutted spindles is that because...
