    Almost all the responses have been in the "solo" category. Me too, most of the time-- it's a great way to get out of town for a while, clear out my head, and meditate on whatever. That said, I have...

    Kind of depends how picky you are. The damage doesn't look too bad and it's probably perfectly rideable. My beater commuter has a very small bulge on the dt from a front end impact and it doesn't...

    The paint looks cracked all over, so it might not be structural damage.
    It looks a lot like a Raleigh International frame. Is there any chrome under the lugs? Campagnolo dropouts?
    You can't judge...

    That's not a Raleigh International, but rather seems to be some lower level bike from the 60's or 70's. It could also be a high-end bike from the 50's but the picture doesn't show enough detail to...

    The Cane Creeks are for Weinmann levers and the Dia-Compe copies.

    Dia-Compe 204 hoods fit Campagnolo Record, Modolo, Gran Compe, Suntour Superbe, and similar levers quite well. They look good,...

    Is the Carlton Professional frame the same as the Raleigh Pro? Sure looks like it.
    Also, the Flyer looks just like a Raleigh International except for the lugs.

    That looks like the classic English rack that I don't remember the name. I have never used one but I hear they are flimsy and prone to lateral sway. The ones Ian Hibbel trussed up with guy wires in...

    Different chain lengths for the different size FW's could mean that with switched wheels the chain fits tighter (on large chainring/FW cog combinations) on one bike and slacker (small CR/FW) on the...

    There is a lot of rust on that bike, which is not a good sign. At the very least the chain, derailleurs, and spokes are toast, and perhaps the steel parts of the brakes, cranks, pedals, headset,...

    For most applications I would go with a Blackburn for price, weight, rigidity, and looks. A brilliant, simple, elegant design, I would say it was the first really good mass-produced rear rack....

    40mph with potholes sounds like a bad mix no matter what you're riding.

    I don't quite understand why you "have to" sell it. Restoring frames for resale is usually a money-losing proposition. If you like it, then get some parts, build it up, and ride it. If you don't...

    I think all bicycle frames were/are "hand built" to some degree. What's the alternative-- that they were 100% built by robots? I imagine the difference was the amount of time spent on each frame,...

    Small-scale Italian builder. I think Paletti's are about as good as anything, so for me it would be a question of fit, and if you like the way it looks. I believe Classic Rendezvous has a section on...

    Holdsworth is a highly regarded builder and a classic British marque. That bike looks like a racer (high gearing and tubular wheels) but would probably make a great all-round sport rider too. If it...

    Circlips for Campy Tipo QR's

    Campagnolo Tipo hub quick release levers are held on not by a threaded nut (as with the Record) but by a tiny circular metal clip. I believe these are called "circlips" but feel free to correct me....

    I would get it if you like the price. If a larger one comes along later, it would be an easy matter to sell. I've seen Hobb's frame on Hilary Stone's website every so often, they are not common but...

    I'm not the pickiest guy on the forum, but I do draw the line at anodized rims-- they change the look of the bike. Ya gotta have some minimum standards, and polished tubular rims are not hard to find.
