regina expert in Modesto?

Howdy all,

there is a seller on eBay who also advertises he can build the freewheel of your dreams. Yet there is no real way of contacting him (or her) other than through eBay's message system which does not allow sharing of contact info.

Does anybody know this person?

Absolutely true.

however, two things.

Number one, Iím spending the night in Modesto

Number two, I have a box of free wheels with me to use as part of a trade perhaps, and I also want one of those Regina chains with the hollow pins

itís funny, I think of Bob is the bespoke leather bag/handlebar/brake hood guy. I forget that free wheels are his game

I'm in Modesto as well. I don't know who he is, and no one I know admits to knowing them

There is something, just slightly, NSFW when you're talking fresh lube on schtuff

I tried contacting him through eBay

first I sent a picture of three freewheels with my phone number on them and then I tried spelling it out like Iíve done in the past but the eBay computers sent me a notice that they didnít like what I was doing.

Regina freewheels are not that complicated, at least the Cx, Cx-s and America models. Parts are for the most part available. The easyiest thing to do would be to collect the cogs from ebay and build your own. It probably will not be cheap. If this is more of a show bike then it may be worth the expense for originality. If the bike is more of a rider I would find a cheap Sunrace or similar that closely fits your riding style.
