I have been looking on EBay but no luck at present except for one that is too far gone to be worthwhile, will keep looking, if I can get a nice rubber one I can transfer my existing lens which is in good shape. Thanks for the advice.

Very sharp looking Humber! Saddle, tires, that great blue colour all add up to beautiful bike. Job well done!

Eatons Commander

The brake is curved to fit the profile of the Fender which is bolted vertically through the brake bridge same as on my 1936 BSA Roadster.

There are a couple of the Lucas/Raleigh Industry ones in white - at silly money in most cases, and to send to me in Canada shipping is absolutely stupid (not paying $60USD for a reflector!). However there was one I saw (suitable for 50s so maybe too new for you) currently at around $6, and if you send to your US address I bet the shipping wouldn't be too bad. Lens is amber but you wouldn't care about that!

Just had a thought! Scary! How about a nice piece of saddle color matching leather as a brake bumper? Could be laced or sewn on. On a Raleigh ATB to Drop bar a couple of years ago I had to go back to using old pads from my collection, the new ones squealed and jittered too much.

They always had a clip on the mudguard to hold them up. I don't see one on yours.
I have to agree re: chainguard.
Not original to the bike but it's been on there
a very long time.
The kick stand has a bracket on either side (mis aligned) to

Service the bearings etc., new rubber and pads

Thank you!
Hopefully I can do it justice.

Here's the rear caliper in my BSA. The spring is reversed
placing it further from the stay.
I think this is correct..
I'll check my "control" (untouched) Superbe to
see how it's set up.

On a positive note.
That spill I took on the BSA a few weeks ago prompted me to make a fuss
with the city and the pot hole of death was repaired....
the seat and the bell took a beating.

Despite my bravado, it took me longer to recover
from the fall than I thought.
I'm not 25 anymore.

Regarding the banging of the Rear Brakes, 1) one thing is the brake spindle a good fit and properly tight in the frame bridge? 2) you can get brake block holders with a tab that bears against the rear stay, acting as the stop when the brakes are applied, some bikes were fitted with them as standard. Should cure the problem all else being equal!!!

Finally got the 23" framed 1972 Raleigh Sports ( Root Beer Express ) out for its first ride since I purchased it last summer. Very pleased with the ride and look of the bike. Saddle needs to be adjusted slightly (nose up) and I did not tighten the bars to the stem enough. The only change in the future might be those pedals which were original to the bike. They feel tiny and delicate under my size 12 feet.
Pretty drab out today and with a brown bike (coffee) but at least the snow is gone and its warmer. I thought the wider than usual bag might be in the way but it works and should be great for errands around town.

Ole Root Beer Express is looking mighty good. So nice the B67 and 66 saddles have those frame mounted bag loops so you can use bigger heavier bags. Those little eyelets cut into the leather of the B72 aren't very confidence inspiring. I might even get a short ride in today if I stop poking around the internet and get my quick books finished.

Evidence!!

Wow - she's a beaut! I did a root beer/coffee one for my sister a few years back and the colour sparkles in the sun (too bad its not nice today!).

Re the pedals: they are awful. I had 2 fail on me over time; I tried to take one apart to see if I could repair it but no dice....I did get it apart but the outer cone retainer is a press fit and not reusable unless you are lucky. I bought a bag of c-clips to see if that would make them rebuildable but that failed quickly. Anyway, stock or not better pedals are in order!

Ukulele man is a man, and yes they are trying to look up her skirt. She seems to have that sorted out with her right leg crossed over her left. I was a horny adolescent in the past.

Correct about the chain guard - that looks like a McCauley aftermarket chain guard from the 1930s-40s. They made several art deco type chainguards that could be adapted to whatever bike you wanted to mount it on. The later ones from the 1950s and onward are kind of flimsy but the earlier ones are pretty good.

OK, getting his Popular "H" to stand with nothing holding it is a neat trick, but he's not going anywhere with the girl in the store wearing that outfit.

I think the pedal is resting on the curb.
He may prefer the company of men (who doesn't?).

For a R20 that is in great shape and condition, it only takes one modern smuck mechanic to cause a couple hours of sidetrack repairs to ruin my day!

that leaves me back on track when I find a correct cable end for the brake handle.

Any body have a extra pump that fits a Raleigh folder they want to unload? It takes a 12” I believe size. Or is there another good source to acquire one from?
