Not sure on the threading, but agree, this is the top cup or race, not the crown race. Standards were 30.2mm (for ISO) and 30mm (for JIS). I wonder if a 30.2mm race would fit the frame? And the lower?

Trek 700 build

On the heels of building the Gitane TDF for my son, one of his friends like riding with my two sons (and I sometimes) and decided he would like a bike. I advised him to buy an '86 Trek 700 from...

My son and I built this '84 Gitane TDF up for him during the last 3 weeks. We bought the frame from forum member ChromeMoly in December. The frame included the cranks/BB, seat/post and headset. Built...

Make one. The bolt will be the biggest problem (10mm x 1.0). Boltdepot.com carries them. Drill press is recommended.

Standard non-Campy axles should be 10mm x 1.0, which would be equivalent to 25.4TPI. A 6 speed Campy Record hub normally takes a 134mm axle (10mm x 26TPI). I doubt that the Sunshine hub is threaded...

Yes, Regina Oro according to the catalog. I don't think the Ultra stuff was available that early. Raleigh was the first big manufacturer to go 6 speed in 1973, Many didn't start until the late '70s.

Curious. Raleigh Pros were std. 6 speed from at least 1973 (whatever mark they were then). Why do you need 120mm when the frame should be 126?

Actually it should be 126mm spacing. Raleigh Pros from '73 on were factory 6 speed (not ultra). So was the '73 RRA.
