This was posted originally in "Saved from the dump" but it belongs here.
I picked this up today and am going to repaint it....it has been repaired so a cleanup and perhaps some filing to clean up the weld. Good thing is that it's all there, no missing pieces that I am aware of...just really grungy! Chrome parts will be soaking in OC. while I give it a good wash.
It's super heavy duty and super heavy Merziac said it was originally designed for use on motorcycle wheels but I have seen old pics of them used in some Japanese factories to build wheels..it is marked TANAKA tools Japan so?
Anyway, I am happy to have this piece of history even with the repair.
Best, Ben

before the washdown.

This is awesome. It does look like a motorcycle trying stand however it also looks very similar to a VAR trying stand. You'll need a dishing tool if you don't have one to ensure your wheels are centered.

Super cool!!!

I meant it seems that they were used for both from early on and originally came from the motorcycle industry, I don't think they had lightweight ones to begin with and the heavy duty one would have been well suited for production work as you noted.

Obviously another history lesson to be had here, I saw the same stands in bike shops and motorcycle shops in the 70's although some bike shops had light weight versions instead.

The last step to servicing my Super Course, the removing the cottered cranks to get at the bottom bracket, and...



...success!
Well, mostly success. The drive side came out fine, but the other pin deformed a bit before popping loose. I saved it by knocking it back in line, rethreading the post to 7x1mm, and then tapping a nut to match.

Here's the spindle.


Note the lack of wear! The bottom bracket area inside was like new, just old hard grease. It's all back together and ready to go.

Yes, I did a check on the net and this one is heavy-duty....assuming it will work for bicycle wheels.

Super cool!!!

It's on My list of things to do...but excited not to have to leave the wheel mounted on the bike to do simple truing.

I think it cleaned up really well, the grease saved a lot of the original finish...maybe just leave the patina on and not repaint..thoughts?
Best, Ben


Although not completely gone the OC got most of the rust off the pieces/knobs that were chromed.

I will need to get some wing nuts and plastic washers for ease of use...the metallic paint worked wonders on the few galvanized/cad pieces (rod and conical holders.

"wrenching" may be the wrong expression here, but i started to clean the leather wrapped bits on my Casati... (white is an unfortunate colour for outdoor sports equipment)

I think it looks great. I also think it will look good either by a repaint or leaving as is. Love the colors underneath.

Interesting few days

First, finally pulled out most of my packed away bike parts and started to get organized at my new house. Doesn't look like much but it was great to figure all the stuff I already own. Found out that I already had a set of chainrings that I recently bought.

Yesterday, this Dura-Ace derailleur attempted to kill me while I was test riding my Patrick Mahomie bike around. Broke off while I was standing and shifting.

Luckily because I had pulled out all those parts this weekend, I knew I had an old Shimano 600 derailleur that fit. It was the original to the bike, but it was super rusty and grimey. 30 mins with a wire brush and steel wool later and I had this. It's late when I took the pic but it's shiny and surprisingly works perfect with the 10spd drivetrain.

Current state, you can see why it's my Chiefs bike. Trued both wheels and cleaned the brakes for good measure after changing the derailleur.

Shimano 600 Front Derailleur

Those Shimano FD-6207 front derailleurs are my favorites when I'm building a Shimano or frankenbike. I use them with 5-6-7-8 speed rear cogs. They shift crisply and the cages are long enough to handle many triple setups.

The cages are also wide enough that I rarely have to trim the FD after a rear shift.



Speaking of "tried to kill me", I had my new Ed Litton out for a short maiden voyage yesterday. About 4 1/2 mile in, after fine tuning the seat height and angle. I reduced the front tire preasure from 90 psi to 85 psi and every was perfectly dialed in with a beautiful ride and handling.

I was doing a slow, sharp left hand turn when I felt my left pedal strike... next thing I was doing a face plant!

Sidewall blowout on a NOS sewup!

I'll survive but the brand new black brake levers are trashed!

THINGS TO DO IMMEDIATELY AFTER A FALL:

1. Look around and make sure no one saw you take a spill - to preclude embarrassment.

2. Check out the bike for damage.

3. Check out yourself for injury.

Bummer about the spill, but I had to laugh at that last part. I did those exact three steps today after some railroad tracks put me down.
Everybody saw me!
The bike is unscathed.
I may have cracked a rib.

It was still a great ride.

I hear you, I have permanent scarring on my right hand from a terrible fall years ago. It's damn scary when it happens while you are standing and pedaling.

I am amazed how well that derailleur works. That is 10spd Shimano drivetrain with a SRAM Apex cranks that are compact. It shouldn't work but does perfectly. That is something I love about Shimano stuff, that cross compatibility is great.

I'm on a roll with bike fixing too. Reused some bar tape on my Jamis Aurora with the weird Denham bars.

Put together a new custom 9 speed cassette for the Pelizzoli today: 12-14-16-17-18-19-21-24-28. Paired with the 50/34 compact 6206 crankset, makes for a really nice 16-19 mph pace on flats and rollers, with a couple small ones on the bottom for downhills and a couple bigger ones on the top for more troublesome hills.

Today I finished a project that had been in the attic for a few years, a 1988 Concorde Gavina from 1988. Total respray and rechromed, a rare Campagnolo Chorus Graphite groupset and lots of other NOS bits and pieces.

I think you are right that your stand was for motorcycle wheels, it looks bigger than the HTK I restored some yrs back.

Wow, yours looks great....I did some additional research and found this on the web...so it must have been used to do both types of wheels.

Base's are slightly different
