    Yeah, I'm eagerly awaiting too! Alas, Campy Record, not Nuovo, is a bit rare and a bit expensive; and the same goes for Stronglight 57. I'm certainly not above slapping a Weinmann Weltmeister decal...

    1959-1961 Allegro Special

    Some of you spotted this sale, so you already know what's coming.

    I've bought this frame, which appears to be my size. I'm expecting it to be delivered on Friday.

    Seller's photos:...

    That's really nice! I love the anodized brake levers, among many other details. I guess the rear wheel isn't original, too bad about that. Is the front hub a Normandy? You should be able to find...

    I like your attitude. Ride. Sooner or later the cranks will soften up.

    Have you tried stomping on both pedals simultaneously, with no cotters in place? Seems to me one or the other should give....

    Yes, I share your concern. I'd like to find a 14-26 five speed, and can't. I doubt the situation will ever get hopeless, but it seems every maker has all the 13-28 or 14-28 freewheels you could ever...

    I'll try! I find I'm very bad at documenting these things, because my camera doesn't do well in artificial light. For good photos I need daylight; and I work on bikes when the family is asleep!

    Hah, fair enough.

    If you gave me that saddle, I would use a few parts and save a little money, as follows:

    Tension pin, new, from Niagara: $5.58
    nose, new, from Niagara: $3.60

    Aside from the size of the wife's backside, one has to ask: if the saddle was removed from the bike when new, how did it get ruined? The tear in the rivet on the nose piece is not cosmetic, that's...

    Let's look at the priorities here.

    This thread is entitled "1937 Bates". The owner clearly appreciates the fact that he's dealing with a frame that's almost 80 years old.

    Aside from that, he...

    People have tried strap-on bosses for modern type cantis. You can get them but they're very expensive. I suspect the reason they're rare is because the idea is fundamentally flawed; that type of...

    You can put 4 speed guts in an AW shell from as early as 1937 and no one will know you have that extra low gear unless they get a good look at the left side of your hub axle. Same goes for 5 speed...

    I'm sure you could have your friendly local machinist make you an axle-mounted derailleur claw. That might even be a patentable idea. What this bike really needs, though, is a sturmey Archer hub and...

    Bianchi Eros came in a small size with 650c wheels in the early 90's. Others, too, no doubt.

    If you can find a decent juvenile bike made for some sort of 24" wheels (520 mm, 540 mm, etc) you may...
