Bob H. helped me I.D. this 1988 Schwinn Enduro that was made in Japan by Panasonic. I thought it would be nice to donate to a rugrat. I'll pay for shipping if somebody works with a kids' charity or knows of a needy little guy (Then again, maybe I'm a fool. Most kids would maybe think this is junk...or would they like it??)
There's a local shop here that was collecting donated bikes to give away to kids at Christmas. I'll stop by this weekend and see if they're still taking donations for this year. I think that's a pretty cool bike for a kid, but what do I know?

52t and 42t Stronglight Crank

Are we still doing this? I've been trying to figure out some of the stuff I have, and I've only been able to figure one out so far. I had to plea for help! Stronglight gave me the lowdown, and said I could quote any and all of it, so I'm just going to post what he said, because it's terrific information! It's quite a sales pitch for a not very special part, but I spent about 3 hours trying to figure out what it is, because there wasn't really markings on it.

It is a lower range Stronglight cotterless crank and I had its twin which indeed came mounted on a mid level early 1980s Peugeot which I had used for many thousands of miles as my commuter bike. I later gave the bike away to a someone in need of similar transportation, so it's probably still in use! The pedal threads would be for standard 9/16" x 20 (not French). And as I recall it also had tattered plastic dust covers which were 22.0 mm (NOT the obsolete Stronglight 23.35 mm) so threaded replacements are easy to fine, or of course simply the plastic push in type, just to keep the the extractor threads clean... and best of all this also means the cranks will accept standard modern crank extractor tool. The square tapered spindle used was the standard 118 mm length, as on most 1970s French double chainring cranks.

You'll notice the outer ring is permanently bonded to the crank arm. Not a good design really, since the ring cannot be replaced, but in this case the chainrings are actually so strong that these would probably last as long as the bike for which they were intended. The inner ring is 122 BCD so that one could be easily replaced with any commonly found Stronglight chainring, and it is usually the smaller rings which will get the most wear... in my case, it never seemed to wear, anyway.

So, nothing fancy about these cranks, but certainly practical and durable and best of all without a lot of the quirks of earlier French threaded crank sets. Depending on the bike these may be used on, they could probably accept a 68 x 115 or 68 x 118 "UN-53" Shimano square tapered cartridge bottom bracket which are still easy to find, inexpensive, and should last also for many tens of thousands of miles.

I have a front fork for a very small frame bicycle (50-52cm?). It could use a fresh coat of paint, but it's straight and functional. I'll it out tomorrow for more details for those who may be interested. I may have a suitable box, but a few dollars to help cover shipping would be appreciated.

Edit!!!!!!!!! !!!Gone to Business810!!!
Now lets keep this thing rollin' guys!


After a series of losses on Ebay......I've decided I need some good bike Ju-Ju so I thought I'd revive this thread with a new offering.
~First one to PM me gets it.
~I will ship the 15th of this month at my expense anywhere.
Here ya go! Early Dura Ace brake caliper. With original pads and holder thingies hangin' off of them. I didn't even lose the adjuster barrel thingy! There is some corrosion on the quick release. It also doesn't have the nut on the rear or any washers. Sorry it's just the one caliper.



Good day!

From the 'not for your show bike' department, I have a 46 tooth Stronglight 99 chainring (86 bcd) that's a good news/bad news part. I got this in a lot of Stronglight rings a while back, and I don't have a 99 crank. Anyway, the good news is the teeth look like it's never seen a chain. The bad news is there's some serious corrosion on the chainring body, including one of the mounting tabs. Some of the corrosion is deep; this isn't just something you can buff out. But overall, it looks like it would work, and it's an uncommon size in an obsolete bcd.

Shimano 6 speed indexed DT shifters. They aren't NOS, but they are functional.

Also, beat up Shimano Light Action rear derailleur and Suntour SR front if anyone wants them for parts, flips, or whatever.

Hey leftthread! Love your avatar! The trillium is one of my favs.....I make a habit of trying to save them from areas being developed (boy they have deep roots/bulbs in my sweet valley soil). First thing to bloom every year in my yard. Love 'em.

At one time years ago the big crop was hops then some kind of blight or weevil got to them and ruined that major agri business. A lot of fortunes were made and then lost at that time. Then it was tulips and daffodils. Now we mostly grow warehouses and they ain't pretty at all

I didn't see many daffodils out there yesterday , not in the fields at least. I hope we see a few on the Daffodil Classic.

I have an old rear mount generator with front/'rear light. Dirty with some surface rust, needs cleaning and probably repair. Made in Hong Kong, unknown manufacture, probably circa mid-80's.

Probably not worth the postage, but does anyone need this and feel handy enough to bother with it?

OK, I've been cleaning out the basement, so here you go:

One pair of Schwinn marked (Weinmann?) brake levers with suicide levers. These are the quick release levers with the orange anodized quick release mechanism. The levers were removed from a girl's frame Continental. They have some minor scratches but no road rash -- looks like the the kind of dings you get from being knocked around a shed for 30 years. They polished out beautifully, and are very presentable. Sorry, but I do not have the barrel adjusters -- I looked.

I set of steel Schwinn stem shifters. These were removed from the same girl's frame Continental. Condition is very good.

You can have both the shifter and brake levers or pick just one item. PM with your location, and I'll figure out the postage.

First come, first serve.

Resurrecting the thread.

Anyone interested in doing this again this year? I have to admit, this thread gave me a lot of enjoyment last Christmas . . . . . . . . and considering that my feelings toward the Christmas (never Holiday) season are curmudgeonly to that point that I always felt that Ebeneezer Scrooge was a bleeding hear liberal, I suppose that's saying something.

Same rules, same intent as last year. And I'm digging through the garage.
