I couldn't find the 105 rear hub I stashed somewhere. I wanted it to build a new rear wheel for my Raleigh International so I could update the drivetrain to 3x8. But I found a racing wheel I had forgotten about. It's a Bontrager wheel with only 24 spokes. It's not as robust as I was planning, but I'll try it and see how it goes. If it fails, I'll buy or build a wheel with more spokes.

I still need the crank fixing bolt and maybe a few other bits and pieces. And I need to spread the frame to accommodate the wider rear hub. I have dropout straightener tools, and I'll use them after spreading the frame.
