Repop hoods for Record levers. Nice fit but may have to trim a little off the underside.

NOS Sidiís from France

Was lucky to find these NOS in a 45. Took forever from France but worth the wait!

Went on a shopping spree at Planet X, a few days ago, and today a big box was delivered with - among other stuff - these items.

Selle Italia Mitica. For the price of a nice used B17 I want to try it, as it looks gorgeous:



A pair of Jack Brown tires. Made by Panaracer and at €20 a piece they seemed like a good deal. And I like the extra 0.3mm. You never know when you might need it . :

Michelle the postal girl brought me some needed bits for builds in progress.
The Raleigh has stopped momentum waiting for some bar tape, and Michelle came through with six rolls of cloth tape for it.
The Patelli is beginning to start to take some shape with the addition of a GS headset from BF member Alex Ries, and some bits for reconditioning bearing races from Golden Coulee. MH is pretty stoked this evening!

New to me Detto's (46). Bought 'em from eBay and picked them up on a ride to Highland Park this morning. They have a high probability of being too narrow, but we shall see...

Pair of LOOKpagnolo Arc pedals. I really like these and could not say no for an eur10 offer especially that they are almost like new. Even on the better ones the branding is usually in past tense but not in these.

For me this time the repaint is a plus as I always wanted to try how do they like polishing but with a beaten up orig paint i would not mess around. Now both my "real" bikes will have them which is cool I guess.

A set of decals from Blighty to jazz up a Raleigh Super Course of "the discerning collector" (that would be me ). I especially like the small Prugnat label.

And you're right, I am not keeping the bike original.

I've been trying not to buy too much lately but I did decide to treat myself to some new 4mm Allens, I can never seem to find one, and a couple of new jerseys from Online Cycling Gear. They seems pretty nice. The full zipper is new for me but I like it already.








A little something extra on this one.

Picked up a Pro-Compe Ultra 6 freewheel locally from a nice fella. I don't think these were sold massively in the Netherlands, he told me that he'd ordered it from the US years ago but had used it for 200 km only. It's 14-15-16-17-19-21, not the best progression for me, I'll see if I can use some sprokets form 5 speed Perfect freewheels I have.

Specialized pedals from francophile and seatpost from jeirvine . Both will start out on the Serotta.



which is starting to collect parts for an initial build. If it turns out to be a keeper I may cold set the rear end to 126mm to accommodate the DA-7400 group I have.

A couple sets of Suntour shifters. The symmetric are new take off (80ís) and the power shifters are NOS with minor shop wear. I am keeping the symmetric and unloading the others. I know the fellow personally and he has some more sets of the power shifters as well also NOS.

Yet another Shimano BB tool this time for the Alan. Unfortunately the company sent the tool but upon dispatching they reported the BB-UN55 to be sold out.



And a cheapo AXA headlight for the new to me KTM Veneto trekking bike which is the new child carrier.
