| David and company,|
I'm sorry to say I can't offer the list any of the Dunlop tires I was bragging about earlier. Sorry to be a tease but between the owner, friends and myself, they are all spoken for.
| WELL, I HAVE ONE THAT I'M WILLING TO LET GO OF. A DUNLOP ROADSTER.|
IT'S NEW, NEVER USED, WITH THE TAG SIZE 28 x 1/1/4 SAYS ON THE SIDE OF IT: TO FIT RIM B.S. E A 2 MADE IN ENGLAND DUNLOP ROADSTER
IT IS DEEP BLOCK TREAD.
THE THING IS THAT IS IS A NARROW TIRE IN A STRANGE SIZE AND THERE IS ONLY ONE. I HAVE HAD IT FOR YEARS. EXCELLENT AND UNUSED. BLACK ALL BLACK TIRE.
I HAVE MADE A POINT OF COLLECTING THE CRAZY, STRANGE, UNSELLABLE, WEIRD STUFF TIRE WISE AND BECAUSE THIS IS A 1 1/4 TH SIZE I MAY FIND NOBODY INTERESTED IN EVEN THIS!
10.00 PLUS SHIPPING
E- MAIL IF INTERESTED.
| Chris...I would love to buy that tire if it's the unique 647 mm bead Dunlop 28 X 1 1/4. Slip it over a standard Dunlop DL1 rim and see if there is way too much slack. If so, I'm in. I have one set of these huge rims on my CCM Road Racer.|
It's a rare size that I've only seen on canadian bikes from the 30's.
| Whooops...email is email@example.com|
| Will do, but I don't think it'll fit. 28 x 1 1/2 is too wide for this narrow tire. It's not as balloonish as a wider 28 X 1 1/2 but... I do have a Dunlop rim and I'll try it. Novely tire and it is so N.O.S. too.|
I have no 28 X 1 1/4 rims in my possession and this is the only tire in this size. This tire might date back to when I was feeding off of the carcasses of Canada's greatest but dying off, old school bicycle shops.
I've had it a long time. This tire is from the 1950's maybe the 1960's. What it fits or could fit I'm not sure. I'll let you know if it fits a basic 28 X 1 1/2 rim.
| I tried and it will not fit a 28 x 1 1/2 inch Dl1 rim.|
Let me know if you still want it.
| Please and thank you Chris. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.|
| ok, I'm not much of a road bike guy, but I think you guys would be able to help me out here:|
awhile back I bought a 1960's 20" "Iverson Charger" with what I belive to be a 2speed Kick back coaster brake hub. when trying to drive foward it slips a bit and when you use the coaster brake it slips a bit and sorta stops the bike...how exactly would I go about fixing this? will just using it clear up the problem? the coaster brake arm has a screen / mesh pattern and the hub looks like a regular coaster brake hub except its a little bit bigger then usual and has a grease fitting. I only road the bike once (up and down my grandpa's driveway) and as I remember when I hit the brakes lightly and then pedaled foward it seemed to go faster, it really did seem to have a good gear ratio. so if anyone can help it would be great as I'd love to use this wheel on something, thanks...
| There were several brands of Kick back hubs.This one sounds like a German torpedo.(sachs)---sam|
| GO TO YOUR USED BOOKSTORE AND GO TO THE BICYCLING SECTION AND LOOK FOR GLENNS COMPLETE BICYCLE MANUEL 1973 EDITION AND READ IT. I'D LIKE TO SCAN THE ENTIRE BOOK AND POST ALL OF IT ON MY UPCOMMING WEB PAGE BUT THAT IS A BIG TASK AND i'M NOT SURE IF i COULD DO THAT COPYRIGHT WISE.......... BUT BOY, I TELL YOU THE INFORMATION IN THIS ONE BOOK ALONE COVERS EVERYTHING SO MANY PEOPLE HERE ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT.|
| E- MAIL THE ADDRESS, I'LL POSTAL MAIL YOU COPIES OF WHAT YOU NEED FREE. DESCRIBE THE HUB. RED, YELLOW, BLUE BANDS OR SINGLE RED BAND. IS THIS A SINGLE SPEED HUB OR A MULTISPEED HUB?|
| With regards Glenn's. I obtained a copy quite inexpensively on alibris.com. A very useful book that deserves a place in anyones bicycle library!|
|Finaly got a bike my wife(who never learned to ride)can ride too.---sam|
| Very nice! I like the "blackout" look of it. Enjoy!|

| Larry the bike is a very dark green. He mentions it in an earlier posting. It does look black. |
I like the dark green. How do those hubs work. I thought about buying some. How heavy are they. Where did you find cranks for it.
| Had to take a big breath when I saw that bike.|
Please sell to to me when you've had enough. Brilliant.
| Ah.. yes... I see it now... but my comment as to the "look" was more to the overall darkness of the bike. The dark rims, etc. It IS awesome.|

Glad ya'll liked it.The weight is manageable.I carry it up stairs,so while it might be heavyer than a new one it's light enough to be fun to ride.The hubs are Araya drums,about 1/2 what the original drum hubs weighted.I will change to the original hubs someday when I get them rebuilt and painted.But the arayas work very well.The bike rides on standard sports 26" rims & tires.So it's a lot like riding a verrrry looooong sports roadster.For long distance riding I would go with a set of Sheldon's sun 26"rims/or 700s and road tyres.But for now it's just right for the park rides we plan----sam
| Does anyone have a cheep raleigh pattern DL fork.Steer tube needs to be 8&1/2",fork legs are unimportant so a damages fork would be best for this project(as long as steer tube and crown are O.K.)No locking crowns please.---sam|
| DL, as in DL-1? Raleigh has used the "DL" symbol for various models before. Thought I'd point this out.|
| Yes,what I need is a good 8&1/2" steer tube and fork crown(Raleigh type,no lock)---sam|
| Just about the prettiest one I've seen...|
| Wow.... VERY nice!!! If it were the larger frame.... |
Thanks Warren. The fellow did a good job putting the pics together too.

| That bike even has the "guaranteed" transfer! Why is that decal always the one that is gone?---sam |
| The bidding was up quite high on this the other day and now the auction has been ended early. I wonder if someone made an offer he couldn't refuse...|
