All those suggestions make too much sense, but I may ultimately get there in the end. As we all know, the various paths enlighten us, and occasionally we glom onto something that we wouldn't have unless we went a crazy direction in the first place. So French Canadian it is for a bit until I learn better or get tired of banging my head into a wall.What fun is it doing things the sensible way anyhow. Once I learn some stuff, I will then be educated at least a bit into things from another dimension.



Dirty, as purchased 1983 UO 14



Pretty drivetrain



Even going to try the Simplex RD



Not too pretty modern hub



Doesn't match the front one


That was as received. Bike is probably very functional after some cleanup and lubes and such. Who can stand mismatched wheels on a vintage bike though?



Ouch on a few spokes



Time to learn some wheel building



The rims were very nice front and back


So that is where I am. Initial investment was cheap. A used hub is cheap. Education is priceless, but often costly. In this case though education cost will be minimal in $$$ but just a bit of time.
