Weekend estate sale finds

This past weekend, I found a few things at an estate sale. I haven't decided what I will keep vs. sell, but all in all, I was pleased with the collection. A couple of questions below, but also just sharing some neato stuff.
  • Campy NR rear hub w/ skewer, Italian thread
  • Suntour Superbe Pro front hub w/matching skewer
  • Superbe Pro seat post 27.2
  • Suntour New Winner 6s freewheel 13-22, NOS
  • 3 pairs of Belleri porteur handlebars
  • Vintage Rivoli chain tool
  • Sun CRT16ii rims, 700c, NOS (I think I'm most excited about the rims because I've been looking for a low cost polished rim, but the M13 is too narrow for my taste, and the CR18 has that center ridge I don't like. These are a perfect compromise, as they're double-walled and eyeletted.)

Pics are in order below.

Questions:
  1. The NR hub has what looks like a spacer that came on the threads. Is that what it is? It is bent, so if I were to sell, I'm not sure if it should be included, or if it affects value.
  2. Is the square bolt on top of the Superbe Pro seat post stock, or has it been replaced? It doesn;t seem to fit perfectly in the space provided, so I'm not sure about it. Velobase pic only shows the under/upward view.
  3. Chain tool says it is for "Uniglide" chains. What does that mean? Does it correspond to Shimano's Uniglide cassette system?

Cool find! If you decide to let any of the Belleri bars, I'm interested. I assume they are 25mm clamp?

Yup, 25mm. I'll try and make some decisions about what goes and stays soon, since I have some other stuff I want to sell as spring moves in.

The UL on the Suntour box means it is an ultra freewheel. Six speed in a five speed size. So you can run a six on a 120mm rear axle. If on the off chance it is French thread, I might be interested.

I think on the seat post, the nut may need to be turned 90 degrees. It is not right as it is. And as you say, it may have been a replacement.

UG chain tools are made to accommodate the bowed outer plates of the Uniglide chain. If you tried to use a non-UG tool, like a standard Rivoli, on a UG chain it would be doable but clumsy and a three-handed job.

The bolt on the Superbe seatpost looks right to me. Here's an under the saddle view of mine:

Good question -- not able to measure right now, but will try to get to it tomorrow. If I sell, I will post this info.

The Rivoli chain tool must be one of the first cycling specific tools I bought back in the early 80's when I started riding.....
Brings back memories seeing a pic of one again.....

While I applaud your devotion doctor Andy_K, this is not an appropriate use of the endoscope.

The bolt on the post probably needs to be flipped 180 degrees, based on the wide opening that tapers in toward the threads.

Is there an appropriate use of an endoscope?

All things considered, it’s not too far off the mark.

The Rivoli chain tool is a duplicate of the one in my tool box. However, the upper "landing" is broken off. It is very handy when a chain is reassembled and the joint is stiff. Just use the upper one to press on the bin to open up the joint and free it.

The Superbe seat post is on my "to get" list to complete my Superbe build.

I own a few of the Suntour posts. Best alu posts ever. Absolutely bomb-proof. Install and forget.

Looking at your pic of the top of the post, everything looks stock and correctly oriented.

Never, ever lose the nuts or bolts. Don't strip them either. No other standard fastening hardware fits here. And you will never be able to find replacements.

You should capture some more pictures and measurements of the Sun rims for VeloBase -- some of those models come and go and risk being forgotten.

Well, the sale went on for a second weekend and I picked up some more stuff. Some of this whole lot will go on sale once I have a chance to clean it up, de-rust, re-grease, etc., but not sure which yet. Pretty sure these are the keepers from today's take - Universal Super 68's with quick release, NR hubs matching set in rough shape, GB stem (22.2, 25.4), early-90's Bridgestone catalogs.
