saw this at the local bike thrift store. not c&v, but also not something i'd expect to see donated to a resale shop.

From their dumpster today; usable 26 alloy QR 7-speed wheels with good Kenda sllcks that are exactly what I was looking for...https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...fb55598a69.jpg

...to use on my knobby tired Marin.

Found a Sturmey-Archer high flange alloy front hub. Never seen one of these.

Also found a rusty but nearly original Gitane mixte.

Today I found a Cannondale H400 frameset that I've seen hanging up inside for years but they finally tossed it.

At the bottom of the dumpster lies a Schwinn 564 frame with its odd expanding seatpost intact. I can probably get that if anyone needs it.

I'll bet that seatpost is seized....

If that quill seatpost comes out easily, it's something totally adding to a stash of parts or to sell off. Make or break a bike with that part.

The rear drop on the "Dale" seems to be missing.....

Yeah, the derailleur hanger is gone but the dropout is intact. The top tube cable guides are broken or missing; the real Cannondale brand stuff. Overall it seems to be in okay shape. Not beautiful, but it could be a neat project for someone.

You can see that the left boss on the fork is slightly bent. Should still be serviceable.

this was at the local bike thrift store for about 3-4 weeks. they wouldn't give me a price and it wasn't marked. :(
went there today, had a price tag of $450 on it. a guy was paying for it (and couldn't pay fast enough) as i was taking these pics.

Next to their dumpster today. Mismatched wheels but in better shape than it looks. I'd grab it if I wanted/needed another project or knew someone tall enough to need it. Would make a good drop bar conversion for touring.

I found this pair of hubs at my local co-op. Older model of Sunshine hubs and a great case of Campy copy. They were pretty dirty as the pics will show, but cleaned up quite nicely without need for any refurbishing of bearing races. They had Campy grease in them and spin smoothly. Pics:
https://cimg0.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...6b7a3935f1.jpg
Left is after cleaning and right is before. Note the chrome lock nuts, a nice touch.
https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...edcddcba94.jpg
Another after and before showing the dirt that came off the hubs.
https://cimg3.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...8b6482b6b4.jpg
Hub shell and inner parts, clean and no pits or damage!
https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/bikefor...acd799f0d7.jpg
Close up of cones and axle and how nice they are for a less costly set back in the day.
This is again a great pick up from the co-op. Cost was Zero but will be worth a lot to a rebuild of a vintage bike or collector. Another save from the dumpster of great vintage parts thanks to the good folks who cut these out and saved them. Smiles, MH

I raced and trained on two pairs of the low flange versions. Kept one of each and still have them. Replaced my trainer front cones with slightly undersized Campy Record and did a sailor's whip after packing with Phil Wood to seal the gap between locknut and dustcap. 1982? That hub saw two years as a training wheel before the new cones, so real use. After the cones, low miles but few of those miles were road. Pulled the wheel down recently thinking I would repack the bearings with new grease. Spun the axle. Never felt bearing so good! Whipping is staying but I'm taking the Weinmann Concave off and lacing it to a quality sewup rim. Sadly, the rear hub which as seen a much softer life (race only, low miles) is 120 FW. I could re-axle it to 126 but I'd need a new bike to put it on. (That front will do nicely on my best fix gear.)

Today was a good one at my Co-op. I scored all of the parts needed to finish the Trek 1.2 . Headset parts, tubes, and cables and housing, along with some cable ferules for 4mm shift cables. Whomever claims the Trek is in for a sweet ride when it is built up. Too bad I have lost interest in building this bike, but I trust it will go to loving home. Smiles, MH

not sure how or why this showed up at the local bike thrift store, but it's there....
