| I have a Stronglight 99 double crank. The left arm is bottoming out on the spindle, and rubbing on the BB cup. Presumably this means a new crank arm. Anyone know where I could look for this sort of thing? - thx|
| Hello....I am in search of a very special bike...my first real bike. After looking at the picture database I believe it might have been a Huffy, but I am not sure. I do know that it was bought at a Buyers Mart store in Pittsburgh in the early to mid 70s. (geez, I can STILL see the lines of bikes and smell the new rubber) It was purple with banana seat and all, single speed and on the chainguard it had a picture of a Tasmanian Devil type cartoon guy (green) and the words "Cool Ghoul". If anybody has one, knows where to find one, knows where to find a picture of one or even knows if it is a Huffy or not, I would love to find out. I would greatly appreciate anyones assistance in helping me recover a small piece of my lost youth......thanks in advance....Denny|
| I am a hopeless fanatic about old English bicycles, and find myself in posession of about thirty of the dear old things. Now, this is a fine thing, except that they are beginning to take up a little more space than I would like them to, and since I just bought an even dozen at an auction last week, I must sell a few of them. Here's a sampling:|
1940 Stoddard Gazelle Sports. Entry-level club 3-speed, top tube shifter, Wrights leather racing saddle, black enamel inverted North Road bars, Super Club front hub. Rides well, needs a good clean and maybe paint, chrome, etc but looks okay. $175. Picture on my website on Old Roads.
1940 Phillips/ TI roadster, rod brakes, original shiny black paint, chrome excellent for its age, rides well, rare and nice. Lovely cycle. Original Terrys mattress saddle or I will include a nice Brooks leather one if you like. Asking $450.
1963 Lenton 3-speed AW plus 2-speed Huret derailleur, chrome fenders, new 26 X 1-1/4" tires, original, nice, great paint, decals and chrome. Green. Rides well. Picture on Old Roads website.
1970 AMF-Hercules, Raleigh Nottingham-built 3-speed. Very nice original bike, great paint and chrome, rides well. $175
1971 Triumph Sports, 3-speed lady's bike, excellent original, super paint, chrome and decals, some scratches but very, very nice and original (even tires!). $195
1973 Raleigh DL-1, very original, paint and chrome look new, original tires, grips and pedals near perfect, rides super. It has a few scratches and some minor rust beginning to creep under the paint on the mudguards, but is pretty special. Asking $500
1975 Raleigh DL-1, not bad but needs paint and attention. New tires and tubes, rides well. $150
1961 Raleigh Superbe 3-speed men's, green, locking fork, working Dynohub and lights (twin taillamps), original B66 saddle, new Michelin tires and NOS brake blocks, half-chrome front fork with white head tube, some scratches but very nice, ridden regularly, rare bike, $295
1958 RAY lady's 3-speed, SW hub, rare, needs cleaning, cables, etc but not too bad, $75
1960 Royce Union lady's 3-speed, black, unrestored but not bad, $50
1960 Dunelt lady's 3-speed, purple, unrestored, rides well, $50
1967 Phillips Master Model men's 3-speed, red with chrome mudguards, unrestored, needs tires, cables, cleaning and attention, $50
1960 lady's Humber 3-speed, lovely old girl, black with original saddlebag, Dunlop tires, tubes, even the fancy valve caps! Rides well but needs cleaning and tuning up. $150 or $275 after I shine her up and do the tuneup.
1960 men's Raleigh Sports, rough and weathered but all there, Dynohub but wrong lights, $50
1930s lady's Dawes 3-speed club bike, Cyclo derailleur, Brooks Pro saddle, 26 X 1-1/4" wheels, Michelins, black enamel Lauterwasser dropped bars, very, very rare, lightweight and cool, rideable but needs restoration, $200
That's enough for now. There are others, in various conditions, including two other DL-1 Raleighs, several Sports machines, men's and women's, and lots and lots of parts. Email me with your needs and I will try to help. I can email pictures of individual machines.
