And those Box o' Crap decals might be getting low.

I really didnt expect to, but when the BOC stopped by my house last week, I scored a much needed item for a bike Ill be building very soon.

My take


These will be installed on several different projects. The tubular will be my first attempt and if successful will go on my 1970 Raleigh

Im happy that the tubular has found a home. Came off a Benotto 3000. The second tire was failing pretty badly, and had to toss it. So whats your plan for the other wheel? Unless your Raleigh is a unicycle... !

Also, that Royal post might buff out nicely, though to do so would pretty much wipe the logo out. Itd been sitting around here for a long time without a frame to pair it to. Glad itll finally get put to use!

I don't have a plan yet for the other wheel. I will figure it out once I successfully glue the rear.
The seatpost is for my unknown Bianchi... so I don't know for sure that it fits. It takes either 26.6 or 26.8... it came with a 26.4 that was obviously to small.

BoC landed this morning, sorted through, and will be going out on Monday to Lascauxcaveman.
Thanks to whoever put the Shimano/Look pedals. This will go on my next project. Other parts will be going on present and future bikes.

Oooh you took that Sturmey dork disc I put in there, nice! Glad to see my first ever BOC was a success both incoming and outgoing.

Oh Great Crap Master,
Might I humbly apply to your service Great Potentate, as a lowly servant in the ranks of the Box O' Crap recipients corps. I duly swear to abide by the by-laws and recommendations of the Great Potentate and faithfully move to advance the Box O' Crap as it will come to me in turn. I hope to aspire to the ranks of the Elders in the BOC as it applies to the cycling world and to the Holders of this web site. I desire that my inquiry might be granted by your most wonderful Great Potentate. Smiles, MH

Most High Potentate, The Great Crap Master,
How might I enquire of the hallowed list of recipients, so as not to be overly surprised by Its' mighty arrival upon my doorstep? As I am certain that the corps of recipients of the BOC are diligent in moving the exalted BOC forward; I am requesting so that I might also move the exalted BOC forward with Godspeed to Its' next destination. Thank you again Great Crap Master for your help in this matter. Smiles, MH

The list and rules reside in the first post of this thread. It is continually updated to stay current. At least at the pleasure of the Great and Powerful Crap Master....

The crapmaster updates the first post of this thread with the arrival and departure dates. Estimate that it goes through two pairs of hands per week to figure when it might arrive with you.

What are the current BOC decals looking like these days? I have one of the old 'USPS' styled ones. Was thinking about designing a new one... a friend is in the 'decal business' I'd be glad to! Soon I'll have to be added to the list, but not yet...

Any decals left are the same. I don't think we have had any new additions since I started the latest go around. However, the guy who usually does them, @Raleigh Sport is now on the list. Not sure if he has any plans to add any, but I am sure a new set might be nice for some and maybe an update for those of us who have the older version. But then you will have to play regularly to keep us supplied!
