    The "Raleigh Carlton" from the mid sixties had cottered cranks, ornate lugs and plain gauge 531 but had wrap-around seat stays and no chrome on the rear dropouts.

    That's odd. I can see no evidence of shifters or the cabling for them.

    It was hard to locate spokes on their web site but I've bought replacements for Vuelta XRP wheels from Bike Island, which is somehow affiliated with Bikesdirect. You'll need to measure the broken...

    I bought mine new for $100 from The Stuyvesant Cycle Shop in December 1966. It originally had Normandy hubs and 27" Weinmann clincher rims. The crankset was and is Williams stainless cottered. The...

    You'd think at least 50% of Craigslist ads would show the bike from the drive side, just by chance.

    No one is mentioning tape rather than glue? (I have no experience with it.) I always used FBNY's method and only rollled a tire once as a result of going down, never as the cause, but I never raced....

    I wonder if you could screw in a softer material (wood dowel? hard wax? plastic?) and then screw it out to see what the threads look like.
