Final part to upgrade my old MTB from 6-sp Uniglide to 7-sp Hyperglide. The 7sp HG freehub body came last week, a 13-30 7sp HG cassette came earlier this week, and the 7sp shifter came today.

Velo plugs for my A23 wheel set that was so frustrating to mount tires on. Much easier now.

Never used these plugs before, worth considering if you're having a REALLY difficult time mounting tires.

Three Suntour Bar-Cons and a pair of ratcheting down tube Power Shifters. Two of the shifters needed a little TLC to get the ratchet working, but all are ticking like clocks now.

I got this whole thing in a slightly mangled box. It needs some work, though. I am sure it will still make me happy.

A very rare headset... in the U.S., anyway:

A Tange Seiki JIS 1" threaded SEALED CARTRIDGE BEARING headset; 7075-T6 alloy cups. It's like the TechnoGlide or the King 2-Nut, but in JIS measurements rather than ISO; made in Japan, from Singapore via Bangkok.



Dig that satin finish, baby!

The Galli brakeset (thanks again to Brian3069) arrived a few days ago, but I'm taking the liberty to show it with some newly arrived pulleys.

NOS Icarus brake levers (same as record OR) and front hub (same as record OR save for the countersunk spoke holes). Been looking for these puppies for a while now, and finally got them for the princely sum of 30 bucks!

I'd like to finish my Clunker project but unfortunately the consumable stuff I ordered 7 days ago from Niagara Cycle is not even remotely close to coming in the post yet. I called them and they said the stuff is not scheduled to ship until next Tuesday! That's about 9 business day's (11 days) from the time I ordered, which means about two + weeks for me to get it. I guess I've gotten spoiled by getting used to receiving eBay items in 3-5 days in most cases. Niagara is a little less expensive but I really don't know if it's worth waiting so long for an inexpensive set of tires, bar tape and chain. I mean I'm only saving a few bucks vs buying locally/immediately. Sorry about this rant, I'm up early in the morning, my favorite time to work on my bikes and I am waiting for parts!

Maybe a little noisier, but not always terribly noisy. The Bullseye pulleys on my Look are virtually silent. I think a lot depends on how they mate with the chain. But I do know what you mean. I bought a derailleur with some inexpensive modern drillium CNC pulleys from Singapore, and noise from those drove me to remove them after the first ride.

I bought a couple sets of Bullseye pulleys last week as well (black and grey in my case). @frantik, did you get yours from the Pork Chop BMX guy, Justin? I already have a red pair on my Medici. I think they are on that bike. It's been so damn long since I could take one of my nice bikes out for a ride, I don't rightly remember. Might be on my Masi. One of the new pairs will go on my Redcay.

Assuming it doesn't disappear off the front porch by the time I arrive home, a late 80's Univega Alpina Pro MTB. Why? I'm not sure. Price less shipping was agreeable. Tange Prestige DB cromoly tubing and Shimano Deore group. Ritchey rims and newish Kenda tires. Looked dirty in the pics. We'll see how it cleans up. It will be a "big brother" to my minty late 80's Univega Range Rover ES. Both will be all-around type bikes and not substitutes for my road bike. Something to ride easy for fun type stuff.

Update...bike arrived safe and sound. Very dirty, but cleaned up now. No surprises, but I can't quite date it. The Ritchey rims and bar grips are probably later add-ons. Now to get some city bike tires on it and see what happens next.

I received a 3-speed thumb shifter for my Sturmey Archer S3X hub. Building the bike around these parts is going to take a long time.
