Dirty but solid SR Apex crankset, 170mm. 52t outer ring, 42t inner ring. It came off a Motobecane Grand Jubilee that ended up being an unsalvageable basket case. Taker pays postage. These are going to go to the co-op after a week if there are no takers. Please PM me.
Update: taken

Some chainrings. 130 BCD Shimano Biopace, 52t outer and 42t inner. 110 BCD Campagnolo, 50t outer and 34t inner (please note, these wouldn't fit on a Shimano crankset for some reason, one of the chainring bolt holes is off; maybe proprietary Campy drilling). These are going to the co-op in a week if nobody takes them. Taker will be responsible for postage. Please PM me.

How often do I wish I was on that side of the world :-)
FWIW , I was talking to a BMX collector (aka bike nut) the other day .
He mentioned that those SR cranks off the motobecanes are sought after by the Bmx restorers .

Sherman,
I think you and I are both of an age that $ doesn't mean as much as doing the right thing for our fellow man. I have a wall full of accolades from various organizations, but they taken with me to Starbucks will not result in a coffee less than $5. But sending $ to Doug's friends will somehow help me feel better about our BF brethren . Smiles, Professor Peabody

I so much wanted this one to work!





Pearl Izumi convertible windbreaker jacket with zippered, removable sleeves. Size large, burgundy color matches my Medici - but:







If the pics aren't clear, a PO didn't get one end of the right sleeve zipper into the slot, and as a result, the zipper keeps opening up from the bottom end if fully-zipped up. In use, it will definitely unzip over and over.

If anyone believes they can fix this, you're welcome to it. I received a refund from the seller, and they told me to keep it. Can't use it in its current state, and I will simply **** it up if I try to force the zip open. Perhaps you might have more finesse, or have solved this issue once or twice before? Anyway, free for the cost of shipping. It could feasibly be used just as a vest, but losing half its functionality makes it a no-go for me.

Measurements: pit-to-pit: 23", bottom of collar-hem: 29"

PM if interested.

* Edited to add more info.

DD

OK, got a small item to contribute.

Recently I got an axle set (axle/cones/spacers/washer/locknuts) for a Shimano HB-M475 hub.

I don’t own the hub, and probably never will. But getting the locknuts separately – which are thin 10mm x 1mm locknuts that are only 3mm thick – would actually have been more expensive than ordering the axle set. I wanted the locknuts.

I’m keeping the locknuts and spacer washers. The cones and axle are up for grabs. Shimano EV for the hub can be found at

https://si.shimano.com/en/manual/sea..._model=HB-M475

This is one of Shimano’s 10mm QR front axles for 100mm OLD hubs; I’m pretty sure it fits standard front dropouts. I think – but I am not positive – that the axle will fit other similar Shimano front hubs of that era that use such an axle. However, based on perusing Shimano EVs, I think that the cones are probably unique to the HB-M475 (though they might be usable in a pinch with other front hubs using a 10mm axle when using suitable spacers and/or alternate seals).

PM me if you want the axle and cones. First come, first serve.

Seems odd they would embrace a swaged crank.

More likely a desire to accurately restore these bikes. Some Cateye reflectors sell for more than you'd think they should be worth as well. I suspect that's a BMX restoration thing.

Probably so and those poor guys have far less than we do to work with.

Most of their stuff was ground up and spit out long ago from attrition, bad luck and less than robust enough quality, design and materials, our "rare" parts are plentiful and cheap by comparison.

Most of us have parts older than BMX and MTB's that are still going strong, many of us have complete bikes that are fine by comparison but if they used swaged cranks, that may explain some of the shortcomings.

I have a long time friend, expert painter, fab guy and resto guru that is working over a VW Thing right now, about half done and already sold, go look up what those turds are going for regardless of condition.

Another prime example of a very poorly made "thing" that's gone stupid beyond any stretch of the imagination or common sense.

Too small for me... anybody want? Size shows "M" but clearly not a standard American size "M", quite a bit smaller.

ON ITS WAY TO A NEW READER. enjoy.

tried unsuccessfully to give this away in the "what interesting bicycle book are you reading" (or something like that). If you want it, I'll gladly mail it to you free of charge. I'll pay for mailing.
