wtb tools

I need some tools to work on older bikes. Not sure what all I need exactly so help me out, but mostly just need the common stuff.

- headset tools (adjustable for sure, might take a remover/setter tool(s) as well)
- bb tools: fixed cup remover, adjustable cup remover, campy bolt remover (14mm?)
- freewheel removers

Have a look at Vintage Bicycle Tools and my guess is that it will help a lot to answer your question about tools needed...

Fixed cup tool

Ever tried sheldon’s improvised tool for fixed cups(bolt, nut, and few lockwashers)? Honestly I think its easier than the “proper” tool, and even though it seems like it should damage the cup, in practice it doesnt.
