I've posted most of these elsewhere, but here it goes.

I've since made an inner support that 'corrects' the bag from sagging forward.


I'm going to reuse/rewrap the tape on this one as the voids near the levers bother me. TA front rack has been installed as well.






For some reason I can't seem to find any photos of this one in a 'finished' stage. It seemed to be ever-changing. The large ring was temporary and swapped for a smaller Mighty Comp.

Thanks SouthPaw. Don't know if you remember my saga of having to replace one of those little elongated acorn nuts. Rattled off and was lost on the Rail Trail. Had to make myself a new one. Which was a bit of a challenge. Now I have blue locktite on them.

Funny you should mention that-- lately blue loctite has been my answer as well for screws that tend to get loose. Seems to work better than star washers for things like fender bolts.

After reading the Cino Heroica thread a while back, which could be re-named the "donate your chain ring bolts to the trail…Heroica", I think blue locktite might be a good idea on those as well.

Toba 700c "Frank" fenders fit nicely on the 27 by 1 1/4 inch wheels of my old Supercycle (by Bridgestone). They are all metal and look pretty classy.

My pet peeve on fenders is stays that poke way out past the outer surface of the fender. Not a problem with the VO stainless fenders w/wraparound stays, or some extra wide homebuilt wooden jobbies, where the stay just dead-ends on the inner surface:

Nice shot of that green bike.
Is that the Loch Ness monster on the left?
Or maybe a muskrat?

Thanks! And yep. Here's the short story. Funny, but they were originally made for the bike wearing the VO's now, back when it was my only bike.

Finally added some fenders and replaced the mismatched rear tire. Looks a whole lot better.


I don't care much for the stays, so they'll be getting replaced with vintage wraparound wire stays.

I picked up some Dia Compe fenders (smooth, 40mm wide) to put on my 1985 Trek described here http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...-trek-4-a.html.

I knew I would have trouble around the seatstay bridge. Originally I had planned to split the fender in two but I decided it would look nicer if I notched it for clearance instead. I also played with some engine turning of my aluminum bracket I fabricated. I wanted to stick with 700-28 tires but that was just a dream! There was no way they would fit inside the fender with the rolled edges and have enough clearance to turn smoothly. 700-25 it is. All things considered I like the way it turned out. I just got home from a 31 mile victory spin.

The bike that got me into cycling one year ago: 1958 Raleigh Ladies' Sports, SW and Dynohub.



Restoration in summer 2014 just to make sure I could keep riding it without worrying about rust.



WD-40 and a penny (or aluminum foil) on surface rust worked wonders. The only parts I had to replace during the restoration were the front nut & bolt for the chain guard.



Here's my beater: a 1979 Ross Professional Grand Tour. Frame, wheels, derailleurs, brake calipers, fenders, and rack were free, all from bikes that had been tossed out. The fat seat here has been replaced with another free seat. It was all the small things that I had to pay for, total maybe $35. This mess is actually reliable and works mostly okay. It's the closest thing to a road bike I have at the moment and I still insist on having fenders since I commute to/at school every day on either of my bikes, rain, shine, or snow. Snow is fun, anyway.

(I thought this would be a reply to Bobtoo (#64) but apparently it just tags onto the end of the thread. Anyway...)
Enjoyed your post of Dawes bikes. The Fox may have been the schoolboys' model but I covered several thousand kilometres on this one between 1981 & 83, in the UK, Ireland and the continent (mostly Italy, Switzerland, Germany & the Low Countries), including the Simplon Pass (2008m) three or four times and the Nufenen Pass (2478m). It did the job but a day didn't go by without me wishing I'd spent more on a lighter bike with more gears, such as the Super Galaxy in your post. Despite the lowly status of the Fox in the range, many people in the UK were still quite impressed that I had "the Dawes".

33 years on and this is my new tourer, a Vivente Deccan. Vivente is an Australian brand but of course all the bits come from everywhere but. A very nice bike nonetheless, with a lot of inclusions for the price. I just need to organise myself to go somewhere on it.
