    I would have saved it from the dump as well. If it fits you it would make a great around town bike. I noticed that the head badge was stamped with Raleigh Nottingham, England. Was it built under...

    It's too bad that PO's who repaint do not document what they started with. A repaint with no head badge. Well someone here may recognize the serial# location.

    I wouldn't bother trying to keep the original housings. Save them if you like, but get new cables and housings. Velo Orange has very nice city brake levers to replace the suspect lever on the left...

    That's a great townie bike, and like clubman said, it screams Peugeot.

    On second look - is that a Competition? The seat stays on mine wrap around the top tube, and it was built with double butted Chrome-Moly tubing. I think the components were replacements - if they are...

    The Competition is a good bike, with reliable components. I would just fix it up and ride it. It would be a great bike on which to learn wrenching.

    Are you sure it is truly stripped and not just FUBB? I would try to chase the threads, or have someone else do it if you lack the tools. Or ride it with the locking nuts off, and ride it hard. If...

    When I don't have the tools or the expertise, I'll gladly pay someone else to do the job. I figure knowledge is worth $.

    That's what I suspected, so anything stamped, etched, drilled, or ground is "pantographed". That term seems so special, but it seems that the effect can be achieved in more ways than one. I think we...

    I had one of those, a '57 I think. It was green and heavy, but very well made. It was my first project bike, and I had a lot of fun with it. My wife and her friend saw it at an antique car show and...

    "It has the top of a pump peg???"

    Velocivixen,

    That looks like a band clamp type of pump peg. It fit the handle end of the pump. The other end of the pump had a U-shaped end , covered in rubber...

    In my neck of the woods you could find a very nice steel framed Japanese or Taiwanese bike for between $300 and $400 - not top of the line, but nice. I like the Varsinentals, those bikes got a lot of...

    I called this guy about the the Tourist, he was hesitant to give a price, but when I said "no thanks" he said he thought the bike was worth between $300 and $3000. I said "good luck with that".
