| When you take apart derailer clusters for the 24 tooth cogs to use on Sturmey- Archer hubs what model derailer cluster units do you you look for?|
Some have larger than usable center holes that are too large for the hub gear driver.
Others fit just fine.
Can you tell me what derailer units to look for?
| thanks mark!|
| The cogs you need are cogs from shimano compatible cassettes. ie anything but Campi. Older, pre-hyperglide ones are best.|
| It's too far away for me but maybe one of our New England friends might like it. |
A little pricey but I never saw a yellow one before.
| The yellow Sports bikes are my favorite ones with the later day Raleigh's.|
It stands out. I bought and sold a lot of the black ones.
| I like it. Yeah... a bit pricey especially for the smaller frame. It would look awesome hangin in the rack on the back of my Mean Yellow Pontiac....|
Larry "Boneman" Bone - Xanthaphobic? NOT!
| My brother goes to auctions and sells it on E bay.He bought a box of what turned out to be rubbish(to him) at the bottom was a bag of complete rod brakes,the whole lot! It looks brand new.Chrome is not of the highest quality,any idea where these are still manufactured,India,China?They look nice,but will be using origonal parts on the Phillips re-build,including Brooks rear rack! Trying to keep 100% origonal but will mean painting some parts that where chromed. |
| Hi Stephen,|
Yes these parts are still made in India. Don't forget that such parts were often made by other firms for cycle makers. A good set is worth having.
Matthew - often painted seldom shining.
| I picked up an old English bike and I know nothing about it, but would like to. It is in great shape and I have even ridden it around town. The badge is Royal. DP Harris, Rollfast New York. Serial is 17866 A. I need help identifying it.|
It is dark colored (maybe black or blue), mens frame, cable brakes, no lights or rear rack, chrome is good, seems complete, very little surface rust, "Sturmey Archer, AW 63 3, three-speed" stamped on rear hub and yes, is a (working) three speed.
| It looks like Raleigh-built. Perhaps a private brand for a now-forgotten cycle shop or department store.|
| I have an old drum brake hub assembly on a schwinn cruiser. I believe the hub was made by "adam" or it is called an "adam" any who I need someone who knows about these assemblies, where I can get one and or if anyone out there knows of someone who might be able to replace the pads on the brake hub? |
| IT's probably an "Atom" brake, not an Adam brake. I would go to www.schwinn.com, then heritage, then "Restoration Forum." You can post messages there, free, and most Schwinn guys go there to find parts and repair services. |
