My Take











The French Regina Free Wheel and Record hubs were the real gems, I think I’ll use them along with a pair of Soma rims for a 650b conversion. I “de-quill” my pedals so I won’t feel bad about modifying a pair with a preexisting crack. The Mafac levers are a great addition as I have a modest stash that includes all the hardware needed to mount and cable them. I intend to install the Weinmann’s on my Follis replacing a pair of Dia Compe levers.

A great opportunity to once again trade some cool and or fancy parts for others I am not likely to use. There is plenty of Campy and other high end components in the Box now on its way back East to bwilli88.

One of the things I like about the BO'C, besides opening it to find all the surprises inside, is seeing a piece in someone else's haul that I added to the box.

I'm glad that the Freewheel and High Flange hubs were taken as a set, I intended for them to go together. I've had them for years and my Italian/English High Flange hubs/wheels have multiplied to a level that I couldn't see building up some wheels with French threads.

Other than the Valve caps, cable guide and track cog that appears to all be “Crap” I added to the box, enjoy Sir. I’d love to know when you get around to using that XTR rear mech.

Wow, that was fast. I just got a message on Tuesday that the crap was moving, and it's here already. I pulled a few things out, but it's going to take some patience to pack it all back in. I need to hear from daverup so I know where to send it next. We also need more people to add their names to the list so we can keep it going.

I took a few things out and put a few things back in, so I will be sending the box out in the morning to daverup . Alas, there weren't any cable clips for my BOC On The Road Again challenge bike.

Glad once again to see a few of my old parts live on, the Mathouser Brake pads were removed from my Bob Jackson Tourer and I have no recollection as to how and when I came by the SPD pedals.

Well folks,
On Thursday afternoon the old CrapMaster had a procedure in the Dermatologist's office that has rendered him unable to be exposed to sunlight for about a week. So when postman Paul delivered this package today, I was unaware of it's arrival until after sundown. I will however get to unpacking it in the dark as would any vampire. I am hopeful for getting all of my crap into the box for he next recipient. The Exalted Box O' Crap as it arrived:

It seems to be in pretty good shape after a long journey away from here.

Thanks for checking in and thank you for your service as CrapMaster of yore. I am so proud that the tradition that you were a big part of is continuing along. I trust all is well with you and the family, smiles, MH

Well folks,
Tonight I got a chance to finally open the exalted Box O' Crap, and as per the rules here is the obligatory preview of the contents:

The crap before I get to dig into the contents.

So a bit of Quality Time with the Box O' Crap today. There were quite a few gems in the box, and a few that were just plain rocks. I have infused a few small bits that are useful and tried to be true to the idea that something of value can be found for the next few recipients. The BOC has lost a bit of weight here today, but I think the more svelte shape will be to it's benefit. (Or maybe the postal worker's benefit!) As the rules state I am showing pictures of my take and hope to get a few pictures of my take on a bike. I forgot to update the BOC stickers but will send a few to the next box recipient so he/she can replenish the sticker stash. Smiles, CrapMaster Honk

My take: a lot of borked stuff and a couple of valuable pieces for me.

Thumb shifters for the FR, and some steel pedals.

Some missing dust cap pedals and Delryn parts that were broken

Some valuable parts for me. A cinch bolt for Modolo brake caliper, a pair of toe clips and a pair of brake levers to match the calipers I am rebuilding.

Please see the first post to see the rules and the line-up of future recipients. Please respond in the thread to sign up to play. Smiles, CrapMaster Honk

The Box O' Crap has left the building! It is on the way to South Carolina, and of course I got a rookie on the postal counter. She rang it through and presented me with a $50 shipping charge. I brought up the flat rate box and she was unaware that re-using a FRB was possible. As I expected the rate dropped to $24 when she scanned the FRB code. So next in line is jdawginsc, and we have no players lined up after him. Please sign up here in the BOC thread to play. Mucho good stuff in the box as it leaves MH land. Smiles, CrapMaster Honk

The crap landeth. Pretty stout. I asked MH to leave me some room to send stuff but he engineered it full! After a modest take, it is ready to move along with extra-squished extra goodies.



As opened. Like I said, extra squished from MH

Ready to move to the next commode-recipient.

Modest take. All will be used for the Blasphemous Raleigh International On the Road Again Challenge bike. Was looking specifically for that purpose. Technomic stem in the right size I think! Whoopee. Hopefully the right fitting head badge, if not I will move that on. And some ferrules...because, why not!?!?

The head badge

The Raleigh International that will utilize the stem, a ferrule or two and the head badge.

I don't need any crap - or so I think. Opportunity may dictate otherwise...and I hate to see the Box lose intertia so I'll get in line after @jdawginsc if you'd be so kind, exalted CrapMaster. I'm sure I can contribute some fine crapola.

Andy,
i have daverup in the line after Jdawg. I think it will go to Dave next and then on to you. The BOC has been pretty solidly packed lately and I suspect there will be plenty of good stuff. My recent look see showed almost a complete group, so plenty of opportunity is in the box. Smiles, CrapMaster Honk
