Great! Glad she got one. I don't figure on disfiguring it any. I thought it may be desirable, and if the lamp idea doesn't pan out, someone else might could use for the better purpose of a restoration. Or, perhaps I'll find a Sekine some day.

all the best to you both.

Today was kinda good from the Post Office. Some NOS Suntour love for the pattern for lock nuts, and some NOS cables for derailleurs. Smiles, MH

NOS Suntour parts and shift cables.

I like the lamp idea, hardwood base, fancy or plain, thick or thin, maybe clear plexiglass under the disc for dimension, metal or wood center and brass, banker or even Tiffany shade.

thanks for the great ideas! Noted. I also considered cutting an old spent hub, and adding a freewheel, maybe making it also a desktop fidget device(lol), using short spokes on a made shade, but I do like bankers lamps... and some other ideas of frame tubing for the upright (only from an irreparable frame). It's still being played in my head, and I thank you for your ideas.

Cool cable ends that don't destroy the cables and give a bit of leverage when tensioning cables.
Ive nearly pulled the trigger on those a couple of times. Whatre you using them on?

Andy,
I think they are going on the Ciooc for now. I may order more if they work as advertised. But $20 for a set makes one wonder about the true value. Smiles, MH

good morning zookster and thank you. I'd had dual headlamps on it and used this to bring them above the front bag, and bump them less in a top and nearer to center hand position.

Click Here for the BRCOVAN unit. From Amazon.

there are also others-longer bars (different branding) and I saw one with a bar that was a battery bank as well. Happy hunting.

Today was a parts day. New Keo pedals, the orange cable kits for the Miele, some silver headset spacers for it also and finally some C.F. rails for one of my Fizik Kurve saddles. The saddle was listed with a broken shell and I was the only bidder. I figured $15 shipped for some carbon rails was a deal. Once you take the "tuner" piece out of the nose of the whole saddle the rails assembly can be removed.

Yes most sets do come with them, Id love to have a few

NOS Shimano freewheel. Would have set you back $16.99 in 1991.

I bought this on ebay for the handlebars and the MAFAC levers.
If someone wants the embroidered handlebar tape send me a PM and I'll send it your way. It came off the handlebars very nicely.

I may be replacing a fork with chrome 'socks' (is it?), and it may need painting, if a match isn't found. As well, I have a badly scraped top of a top tube to address on another, while the rest is in fair shape. If it will curve and trim around lugs well enough, I may try accenting them, yes. I'm just getting started with the idea of making some paint repairs and thought they'd help with some of it. Aquiring supplies.

...they took seven weeks to arrive. I'd check a hobby shop first, were I to do it again.

Just received SRAM PC-870 chains. On sale (still are) cheap enough at Jenson that I had to buy five to get free shipping.
