It had a flywheel both ends of the crankshaft and was so smooth on idling you could stand a coin on edge on the rocker box.


just some useless information seeing as we are getting off subject some!!!
My impression is that among many other social challenges it faced British industry was severely undercapitalized following WW2, which is no big surprise, really.

This one a Nelson or Camper longflap


Up front, a Junior. Loaded down, it does not cause undue steering difficulties.
Spending a lot of time over at the Sisters house while they are on extended vacation. So, I am rolling quite a few miles on the road going back an forth between my house and theirs. A double bagger kinda trip as it were!

Decided to make use of both my Carradice bags for hauling clothes, road gear, food and “stuff”. The Twenty handles both bags with ease!

I like the idea of a good "work" bike.
One that can carry a lot.
I live downtown and rarely use the car(s).
I prefer to do my errands/shopping/hardware store
on the bike.
I've got photos (somewhere) from Rwanda where bikes
are used as taxis and as haulers of anything you could
imagine.

Looks very sporty yet purposeful. Good job!

NYC was of course famous for its Horn & Hardart cafeterias and the Automats that were operated by the same company. But everyplace had cafeterias. Inexpensive food, not fancy. Now I go to Ikea. There might be some company cafeterias operating, but Ikea's are the last ones I know of here that are open to the public. Good coffee at Ikea. Get one of their Ikea Family cards and the coffee's free. Ikea even was offering a bike for awhile. Belt drive, single speed. But the belt was defective and the bike was recalled.

I hope we'll be seeing more cargo type bikes in use here as more and more businesses need to have online ordering with delivery to be competitive. If I should need to make yet another "career" change, I might stick one of those Xtracycle things on a bike and try one of the bike delivery services. And I love those box bikes. Our current mayor, unfortunately, has had to be dragged kicking and screaming to support bike lanes and bike share. (And public transit, which is really bizarre for a politician in NYC.) Don't know about this "old man" thing. Can't imagine who you might be talking about. Two regular customers at my workplace are guys in their 80s. One guy still works shifts as a waiter at a local TGI Friday; the other is a photographer and he's got an exhibit in a major public locale of photos from an Asia trip he took in the early 60s.

Delivering all these online purchases by bicycle is a good idea.
I've never seen so many delivery trucks on the streets.
Last week I caught a guy stealing packages off someone's porch.
I called the police and chased him on my bike.
He ditched his bike in the park and ran into the back of a sketchy
apartment building.
I confiscated his bike (probably stolen) and waited for the
police to arrive.
After I made my report we decided that I would
donate the stolen bike to the non profit bike shop down the street
There's a broken weld on the seat stay.
I was actually on my way to the bank to
replace my credit card that had been stolen the day before.......
Work and pursuit bike.

There are just too many crooks out there today, and a lot are most likely meth heads. Nice pursuit bike.

Good job. The package theft thing is a plague. (People misunderestimate these bikes. You can hammer on them when you need to.)

NYC used to be Theft City but it's eased up. I hope those days never return.

Here's the confiscated bike.

Not much of a bike but I do have a home for it.
The weld on the seat stay has failed.

Q- If I drilled it and put in a self tapping screw, would it be safe?
I have a young lady in need of a bike and free would be her
price range.

I think it would be safe, but it appears to be at the top of the seat tube. Will the repair impede adjustment, or do you have a plan (I bet you do)?

Hi everyone!

I have not been here in forever. I have a 1964 Armstrong that I want to fix up. Where is the best place to get replacement parts?

Thanks all!

I just got back from another long haul across town and back. Strange, it is feeling easier to go longer on the bike now.

awesome crime fighting gster! Your crime fighting name is “ Thundering steel of Justice” The thief’s Ill gotten booty bike might put the young lady in jeopardy if he decides to reclaim it. Hope it can be repaired and put to good use.

Good point.
I could set the seat first and then repair...
I'll have to have a better look at the rest
of it and see if it's even worth any effort.
It is a Raleigh......

Most basic things, tires/tubes/brake pads/cables/cotter pins/chain etc should be
available at your local bike store.
Most of these bikes just need a good cleaning and service to the bearings
as they were built to last.
You need 10 posts before you can add photos here.

Ok, thank you. It has been sitting around but we decided to start fixing it up again. I think I definitely need new tires, cables, and brake pads

This may sound crazy, but how about drilling a hole for a #10 machine screw. Use locktite when you place the screw, and file off any part of the screw that extends into the seat tube. I just say this because we seem to be going whole cludge here.

Not sure if these fit in to this thread....Schwinn is American made, but the 3 speeds on both are Sturmey Archer.
I was glad to get these and really happy they are still a couple after all these years.
I believe they are 1972.
The Breeze needs some work on the 3 speed. It is missing the pin and chain to actuate the 3 speed. I will try my LBS first then it looks like they are available on-line.

I would think the best answer would be to take it to a welding shop, and have them re-tack it.

Another good solution.
I like homemade fixes.

They look like a nice his 'n hers pair.
Purchased,
ridden 2 or 3 times then stored
