MISC:   CEI taps & dies posted by: Ray Pond on 2/22/2006 at 3:13:22 AM
G'day, I've got a beaut old boxed set of CEI taps & dies that was clearly assembled for a specific purpose. I'm hoping someone may be able to confirm whether it may have been for manufacturing bicycles. It contains the usual smaller sizes from 3/16" to 3/8" in 26tpi but also has odd larger sizes such as 31/32"(30tpi), 1.29" and 1.37"(24 tpi). Some of the larger sizes are in both left- and right-hand threads. Any information at all would be most appreciated. Cheers, Ray

MISC:   Stella Bicycles posted by: Mark on 2/19/2006 at 11:47:41 PM
I have a pair of Stella aluminum frame bikes here. One larger than the other. I am into restoring cars and such, but do not much (if anything) about bikes. I have these covered up just to protect them, but was wondering if anyone had any information on them. They both ride really well and are in nice shape. I find names like Weinmann, Nervar and Simplex on the various mechanicals but the rest is in French. Any ideas? Thanks in advance! Mark

I'd love to see a picture. I could tell you a great deal from that alone. The higher end models had Compagnolo components. The Simplex etc. were lower end options. I had a Stella in the 70's and would love to have another. Most frames were steel by the way, Reynolds 531. French bikes were quirky; non-standard size components and threading.

I have an old Stella Bicycle with the number 5195 on underside of the frame.Its a ladies bike.It also has more words in French ,something ...like "vainqueur du tour de france du cinquantenaire" and something like..."weinmann610 vainqueur999" is on it also.I cannot find much info at all on Stella Bikes .Please help !!

I have just pulled my 1974 Stella all Campi parts from storage and am geting it back into riding condition. It is a girls bike, powder blue with a touring fork, reynolds double butted frame. I have no idea what it may be worth but has caused quite a stir in my local bike shop. Here comes the Stella Lady. Do you know it's worth?

          Stella Bicycles posted by Joe Decuir on 7/9/2006 at 7:34:13 PM
I am glad to find out about Stella bicycles. I still own and occasionally ride an SX-73, bought in San Francisco in February of 1974. It is the namesake of the Atari 2600 video game system; I rode that bike to work at Atari every day at the time. The only parts of the original bike left are the frame (with fading decals), headset, handle bars, brake levers, seat post and brake calipers. Everything else has worn out and been replaced at least once.

          RE:Stella Bicycles posted by Rich Rivers on 7/25/2006 at 5:48:44 PM
I bought a Stella 10 speed at a police auction about 35 years ago. I do not know the model (I am at work now and cannot check it), but it is a heavy, steel-framed bike, so I assume it is lower-end as far as quality goes. Virtually everything is original on the bike. A friend has offered to swap out some parts (e.g. the rear sprockets and derailer to make climbing hills easier), but I don't know if this bike has any kind of collectability value. Do you know?

          RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Stella Bicycles posted by bruce on 7/29/2006 at 10:18:08 PM
Rich, I just pulled ou a Stells from my basement that I had as a kid 32 years ago. I want to restore it as a labor of love but have not a clue where to get parts. I might be interested in parts if you are interested and they will match up. Me and a buddy rode all the time together, he was killed at 16 and I sold my bike for beer money at 18 or 19. I recovered it, but only after it was striipped apart. I badly want to get it back together!

          RE:MISC: Stella Bicycles posted by Ken Peregoy on 1/16/2007 at 4:07:35 PM
Hi all! I picked up a Stella at a yard sale for $20. I have no clue what model, would love to figure that out, but suspect it's a SX-76 or equivalent as it is mostly Campy (although an alarmingly high number of steel components on it - seat post, bars)
You may have seen this: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/France/stella_bicycles.htm
From what I gather, the SX-72 or 73 were the "top of the line" but the SX-76 was a custom order, Columbus tubed version beyond the top of the line.
I would assume tubing changed from year to year, since 531 was mentioned, but the chart at the link above notes "light gauge" tubing for all but he 72, then "Durifort" which appears to be a brand from Ateliers de la Rive, the folks who made Vitus tubing.
Bruce - try searching vintage bicycle parts (google) and see what comes up. Also, Larry Black (College Park Cycles, Mt. Airy Bike Shop) has a large collection. Ebay, also. Finding the right stuff is the question. You can probably find whatever parts you need if you just look hard enough (a longstanding local bike shop is a good resource also, one that goes back to the 60's if you have one around and he hasn't cleaned shop!). But do you want to go all Campy (GS vs NR) or do you want to keep with what the bike was equipped with (which I assume, unless you had a very good paying job or very generous parents, probably was more like Simplex.) RIMS - I would beware of old rims - you could get a set of modern, non aero Suns or Mavics (the latter being more in keeping with the bike) and lace them to either old Campy or a new set of freewheel hubs and throw a 5 speed on there and be much safer!
Anyone have a tubing sticker on their bikes? Usually at the top or bottom of the seat tube
-Ken

I just aquired a vintage stella, I can't find enough satisfing info on the bike, it's the lightest bike I've ever felt. It has 27"x 1 1/4" mavic rims w/normandy hubs,stronglight 3pc cranks, pivo bars and stem, suntour front derailer and huret rear derailer, it's missing peadles and seat but other than that it's in good condition. I need more info. Thank You.

I too have, and ride daily, my Stella. I had purchased the frame only in 1972 and built it myself, after having had the frame chromed. It has all Campagnolo and Phil Wood components, a Columbus frame (I believe that all of the better Stellas had frames of this material), Cinelli bar and stem, and now 27 x 1 1/8 tires (it originally had sew-ups).

          RE:MISC:   Stella Bicycles posted by Dave on 8/18/2007 at 6:21:00 PM
I have a high end Stella which is 32 -35 years old. Custom
built for a pro racer in my town who subsequently took off
back to Italy before it arrived in Canada. My bike shop
owner's eyes lit up when I announced I wanted a GOOD bike.
He fitted this frame with all the old stock he had on hand.
It's eclectic but a dream to ride. Wiennman brake, Nervar
crank, Shimano derailleur, etc. For 32 years in the summer
in Canada, I have pumped this machine - keeps a guy young!

          RE:RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Stella Bicycles posted by John on 9/26/2007 at 12:29:13 AM
I have a stella I think it is a 1972. I bought when I was 13 years old for $500.00 in 1976. Got it from a guy who owned a bike shop in LA and built it for himself when he sold the shop. It was (or is) all campy with Cinelli bar and stem. I rode and raced the bike exclusively for many great years. Had braze-ons for cable guides and front derailleur and recessed seat bolt added by Jeffery Richmond and had it painted original orange color back in 1982. It has Columbus acer tubing with chrome butting detail. Had orignal wheels with Rigina Ora straight block until I striped freewheel from hub in 84 climbing a steep road on Sonoma/Napa border. Replaced freewheel and wheels at that point but kept sew-ups. I would love to find a set of decals, If anybody has a set please e-mail me at jmagsamen2@yahoo.com (I know it is crazy to think I could find a set but have to try) I stopped riding cause I shattered my foot badly about 5 years ago (I am a type 1 diabetic) but have started getting back on it a few months ago. I love this bike and must have over 70,000 miles on it. I lived on the bike for many years. Other then the braze-ons, paint & wheels it is original. It has campy 175mm cranks. The bike was made to climb the mountains like a goat with the short wheelbase and steep angles (have to let the air out of rear tire to remove wheel because rear triangle is so small), but is not the greatest handling down them. The bike is very quick and squirrly. If anybody would like pics I would be happy to send.
Stella is a star in my book!
- John

I have red/orange Stella, full Campagnolo record components and Columbus tubing thoughtout. I purchased the bike in 1971 or 72 when I worked at Sun Cyle bike shop in Ashland, Oregon. I beleive the frame was made in the late 60's. I will be restoring it, but matching the red/orange color will be a challenge. Unforntunately, 30 years ago, the metal head badge fell off during a training ride. Somewhere in my storage I have the original sales brochere describing every component. Email and I will try to email a copy of it. It is still one of my best rides.

I bought my Stella from a friend in Santa Barbara in 1976. He had put many miles on it by the time I got it. My buddy and I rode from Seattle to Boston in 1977 and this was the machine I took. Campy and Suntour derailluers, Mavic rims with Campy hubs. Performed perfectly. I still have it hanging downstairs with the other 25 bikes. My brothers have Stellas as well, one is a Reynolds 531 frame with full Campy - much higher model than my own. Somewhere in France are some folks that put these together with great pride and skill.

I have a Stella Pro that I bought new in about 1972. It's completely origional. I would like to sell it but have no idea what it's worth or the best place to list it. I would appreciate any assistance anyone could provide.

I just pulled out of my storage shed a Stella 10 speed I had back in the early 70's. When I bought it, I had the alpine gearing swapped on the rear with a suntour derailer. It still works great today, however, its time for it to find a new home. I don't know what model it is or know the model name if I saw it.
Does this have any value to sell? I would appreciate any info. thanks.

Hi there, I recently aquired one of these bikes, it seems to be a late 70s early 80s bike, and it does have the campy parts on it. i was wondering what the value might be on something like this, MUCH THANKS ALL.

          RE:MISC: Stella Bicycles posted by David on 7/25/2008 at 8:22:23 AM
I have a high-end Stella men's road bike with Columbus tubing bought from a bike dealer in San Francisco in 1977. The dealer told me then that the bike was already 25 years old, so now it's over fifty years old and still riding! It used to be bright yellow, but later had it re-painted by Dave Hartranft in Lincoln, Mass., a nice forest green color in 1987. A friend in SF originally gave me a low-end Campy Record derailleur, a Shimano crankset, and some Weinman brakes (which I still use TO THIS DAY). The bike came equipped only with a Campy headset and bottom bracket. I had to purchase the seat, seat post, chain, handlebars, and wheels. This bike (it has no serial number on it that I can find) has been a constant companion and friend the past thirty years, and I've ridden it all over the United States. It must have over 100,000 miles on it. But now, sadly, the bottom bracket is creaking -- I replaced the Campy with a Specialized sealed-bearing bottom bracket in 1987 since I was riding in the rain and snow a lot in Boston, Mass. Now, it turns out the French threads in the bottom bracket are "reverse", and that bottom brackets are no longer made with reverse threads (can anybody verify this?) I hope I do not have to replace this bike, as it would be like losing and old friend, but the creaking is starting to drive me crazy. It only does it intermittently, though ... like, maybe, when the humidity is high. My bike dealer down the street is urging me to get rid of it and buy a new bike, but that would set me back $1,200-$1,500. If I can't fix the bottom-bracket problem, I will have to replace this bike.

Very interesting blog on Stella. I too bought an orange Stella sold by Artic Cat in the mid 1970's for $200. Its been my only racing bike and I've had a lot of fun with it, replacing parts and upgrading to campy Record brakes, etc. At 24 lbs. its a nice light bike worth keeping up until I can afford a new one for around $1500...

          RE:RE:RE:MISC:   Stella Bicycles posted by Bill on 9/10/2008 at 6:05:53 PM
I'm looking for some information on two Stella bikes that I have. Both are 23" touring road bikes.

One is all black, with all Campy NR, with gold rims, sew-up tires, gold Regita chain and an ideal leather seat. It has been hanging in the garage for 35 years. It has vertical drop out hubs, a fluted bottom bracket and it is all Renolds tubing throughout.

The other is a powder blue mens road bike. I think the original equipment was Stronglight. It has been modified somewhat with a Campy headset, Cinelli bars, aluminum handlebar post. I think I have original rims for sew-up tires and a second set of rims with low profile tires.

Does anyone have information on what the market value of these bikes would be? I know the retail value at the time of purchase (about 30 years ago). The black one sold for '$1000 and the powdered blue for '$800.

Is there a market for these bikes? Does anyone have suggestions on the best place to go to sell these bikes? (A good internet site perhaps)?

Also I have a few of the original equipment parts in a box (old Mafac breaks, a c-post, a free wheel or two, possibly a set of peddles). An old touring bag that mounts on the back of the bike and turns into a backpack. And other miscellaneous parts.

Thanks

I have an Orange Stella with durifort tubing, Stronglight Cotterless cranks, pivo stem and bars (the bars are gorgeous) and heuret in front and Shimano Crane in rear.

I bought it used, and upgraded the wheels pedals and brakes to early eighties stuff.

Many many miles on it, and I am currently fixing it up. I put a Camp seat post on it long ago, but it is evidently too tight and damaged. The seat would have been Ideale, with brass (plated?) rivets. I suspect that it had weinman pedals originally, but memory fails me. I think it might have had Weinman brakes also. I put on Suntour Superbes and they look nice and work great. I suspect the rear derailleur was originally not Shimano crane, only because of the Heuret shift levers (down tube) The original hubs (high flange) may have been low end campy. Will need to look at old photos.

MISC:   Larz Anderson National Bike Show: Sunday August 13th posted by: Peter Naiman on 1/17/2006 at 4:10:24 PM
We're holding 10th annual show at the Museum of Transportation at 15 West Newton Street., Brookline, MA. Starting time will be at approximately 9:00AM and run until 3:00PM with set up at 8:00AM, with the usual scenic Vintage Ride through the paths of the Emerald Necklace which runs through Boston and Brookline. Please put this on your schedule, as we plan to have a great time again this year. More information on the show to follow.

If folks are interested, I'll put together a swap meet close by as there are a few venues within 10-15 minutes of the Museum of Transportation grounds. Last years swap that Linda Pernice tried organizing in Watertown, didn't take place for a number of reasons, but if I can get enough early support, I'll put together a swap meet which will be well attended if I get the word out to everyone on my growing mailing list. So if your interested in a swap meet please write and let me know offlist.

Best regards,
Peter Naiman
Glendale, WI

MISC:   1896 Bicyle Owners Question!?!! posted by: Mr. M. Kitchen on 12/14/2005 at 5:24:34 PM
Some excellent friends of mine and good people to all, have an old Antique Bike they say was made in 1896 and the type they say to me is something called a "Fritzlof", (???) No. 5, (Fritzlof having a possible Misspelling-Minor) "This Fritlof Spelling being off the top of his head, because it was in a storage area at the time of discussion." They are very curious on who,what,when,where,why and/or how, about this bike and I'm trying to find out if any person kind help us on anything about this Bike. "FRITZLOF-1896-No.5" and it's possible value.? Assistance is much appreciated?

I have a bike and I don't know how to date it. I think it is a Schwinn Coustom bike. Gold with chrome fenders, gas tank with light. I think the serial number is 22-466.

I would also like to restore it. Do you have any leads.

thanks
joe
