It still won't be "perfect," but it will be a lot better looking. I've done something similar with my Paramount.

And make sure you have the stem height exactly where you want it before beginning.

Good looking frame. Congrats on the new wheelset plan.

Had this light knocking around for a while. It came with another bike I bought, and I've been using it as a household flashlight. It's bright enough for me to be seen, so I set out to mount it on my Peugeot wet weather utility bike. The Soma Lucas Mini rack has these nice mounting points.



So I took a chunk off of a piece of aluminum bar stock, drilled it, and threaded it for a 6 x 1mm bolt.



So hot today, I spent about 30 minutes in the garage and sweat right through my t-shirt. But, I've successfully bolted more stuff to the old beater, and will hopefully stand out that much more when I need to.

Flushed and rejuvenated a RX100 STI today. It helps to flush from the bottom.

How long did that take? I did it a few years ago. It took a few weeks and repeated flushes. But it worked.

I emptied about half the WD-40 spray can into it a few weeks back, from the top, with no improvement. Yesterday I flipped the bike upside down and flushed a few times, using about half of what was left in the can. It was working after five minutes!

I honestly thought it was toast.

Here is a 1986 Fuji Sundance I found in the back room at the Bike Exchange as a frame/ fork. It was the first year that Fuji made mountain bikes and I think it's a classic.




I did my usual clean and clear coat of the frame. The paint was very good for a 33 year old bike with few scratches and very little fading.

Rubbing out the paint with white polishing compound does wonders for the finish, removing ground in dirt and lots of scratches and other marks.




I kept the 3 x 6 gearing of the original. I found a set of bull moose bars in the bin and some 1.75 x 26 tires to further stay with the original specs. The cranks are Sugino SA with steel chain rings and should be bomb proof. The freewheel is a Shimano hyperglide and I used old Shimano thumbies as I couldn't get any Suntour thumb shifters. It has the original front derailleur and a Mountain LX rear.




Altogether a pretty sweet ride. It should sell quickly at the shop.

Wow, awesome find and a total classic-- I so wish this was in my garage!! '86 may have been the last year for the sweet seat tube decal as well, but I'm not sure.

I have made progress on my gravel bike, a 1971 Raleigh Super Course. I have a tall Technomic stem and mustache handlebars. It will have fenders and dynamo lighting.

I have been working on this 1973 Raleigh Competition, which involved scrubbing away decades worth of dirt, treating frame and fork with Evapo-Rust and bronze-brushing the rust and loose chrome from the fork. When that was done, I had about 25% chrome remaining, so I broke out the gloss black Rustoleum and covered the ruined areas while transitioning to the original dipped-looking black. Some J.P. Weigle's framesaver, some careful spot sanding of rust, some Meguiar's polish and the last of a bottle of Armor All paint protectant spray and I got the finish looking about as well as it's gonna look. I had to spread the seat lug back out to its proper shape, then buy and use a brake cylinder hone to clean out the corrosion inside the seat tube before the 27.2 mm post fit correctly. I lost some of the original tiny loose balls in the headset, but discovered the caged bearings left over from the top half of a cheap Tange fit the upper race of the T.D. Cross headset like they were made for it, so I used that up top with the original small bearings in the lower race. The T.A. bottom bracket cleaned up beautifully, too, and after comparing its spindle to a Nervar unit, I think I can use this as-is with a set of Nervar Star cranks and get the chainline I seek.

I volunteer at the bike coop on Monday evenings. Yesterday, the forecast called for heavy thunderstorms. I wanted to minimize my getting-wet-ness, and my Raleigh International, my only bike with fenders, has a bum wheel I've been meaning to replace. I realized that since I've put 650b wheels on my Lemond, I have spare 700c wheels. I took the rear from the Lemond and put it on the Raleigh. The Lemond had Campagnolo wheels, so the indexed shifting shouldn't work. But hey, it works.

Yes, it's a 3x10 drivetrain. I'm not sure the left brifter is really meant to shift a triple, but I made it work. The brifters are 105, the front derailleur is Ultegra, and the rear derailleur is Sora. The rear hub is currently a Campagnolo Record, originally 9-speed, and it's a Miche 10-speed cassette. How's that for a hodgepodge?

The 197x (really I have no idea what exact year it's from) Chiorda Mixte. Anyone who keeps tabs on the "Your Catch of the Day" topic may recall seeing me post this poor abused bike rescue two weekends ago. I couldn't resist making this bike my #1 priority to refurbish, because let's face it, it would be embarrassing for a bike that looked like this to be seen in your yard wouldn't it? And I kinda felt sorry for it. But what a disaster it has been to work on. Below is how the bike looked when I bought it two Saturday's ago.



So far I've removed the poorly matched rear rack, the saddle and seatpost, both wheels, the handle bars, the brake calipers, and the peculiar Simplex rear derailleur (more on that later). Scrubbed the ancient blue spray paint off of the frame elements with a wire brush that were never meant to have paint on them. Scrubbed the blue spray paint off of the brake calibers, derailleur, hubs, spokes, rims, handlebars, cassette, crank arms, pedals, chain (Yes, some idiot painted the chain even!). The previous owner informed me, and all evidence seemed to validate, that the bike was already blue when they bought it, they replaced the tires, tubes, rim strips, brake pads, gear shift cable and housing, and rear brake cable and housing. The cables were easy enough to visibly see looked new, and lacked any blue paint. I had to strip the tires from the wheels regardless to first scrub the blue paint, and then to wire brush as much rust off as possible, was them, dry them, and finally hit them with a RustOleam Clear Coat, which gave provided the chance to validate the condition of the inner tubes and rim strips, which were all fine thankfully. While putting the rear wheel back on the bike though I noticed something was really odd looking about the Simplex derailleur scrubbing away blobs of dried grease discovered that one jockey wheel had no teeth left and the other had only about a third of its' teeth remaining... just great.

So next on the agenda is the removal of the headset as it rather consistently feels like it has a bad bearing when the handlebar is turned. And yes, the fork has been rotated a hundred and eighty degrees back to normality. Presently taking a break from this project as the new jockey sprockets are on order from overseas and not likely to show up for at least two weeks. Since had to order those, well, I figured "why not" and also ordered a new seatpost tube, as the one it came with, which I presume is original to the bike is all of about six inched long... which basically only gives the rider about two inches of safe height adjustment variance, how dreadful. And since I ordered a new, more normal modern length seatpost I figured, well why not a quick release skewer for the seatpost too?

All in all, I think this bike, even with a blue spray can paint job, is actually going to look rather sharp when all is said and done. Can't wait for all the parts to arrive and see if what I'm envisioning for the finishing touches will look as good in reality as my imagination is telling me it will.

Cleaned up the Méral. I'd bought it for mrs non-fixie because she wanted "something special". Thought this might be a good candidate.

The paint is in pretty good condition, but the original hearing aid beige is so not special that I am considering painting it.

I put away the Ironman and the two Treks, and will be riding Panasonic for the forseeable future. '72 World Voyageur and '92 Paramount PDG 5. These two have been on the shelf since April, so needed some tuning up. The Paramount is my only indexed bike so will be somewhat of a treat. The WV has a Spirt fd and a Cyclone rear. A great set.

Something a little different

It is a mid 80's Phillipe , A small boutique builder that I had never heard of. I am going to build it up with all french parts if possible.
