ENGLISH ROADSTERS:   S5-1 internal parts... posted by: Kurt K. on 7/8/2005 at 10:36:45 PM
Just bought myself an NOS S5-1 axle and a used S5/FW planet cage at one of the LBS, but I'm still less the four unique planet pinions and pinion pins used on the S5/FW hub models.

See the below link for a diagram of the S5-1:

Also need all the left-hand side gear/spring paraphernalia as shown in the diagram above, part numbers:

HMN 133 (dog ring locknut)
HMW 149 (dog ring lockwasher)
HSA 138 (dog ring)
HSA 319 (pinion return spring)
HMW 488 (pinion return spring washer)
HSA 318 (secondary sun pinion)
HSA 317 (primary sun pinion)
HSA 273 (low gear spring)
HSA 295 (low gear axle key)

Drop me a line at the usual email address (cudak888@aol.com) if any of you fellows have any of these parts and are willing to sell them.

All the best,


FOR SALE:   Schwinn Speedster posted by: David on 7/8/2005 at 3:46:29 AM
I found a Schwinn Speedster missing its saddle and post, otherwise complete. It has Schwinn 26 x 1 3/8 tires (special Schwinn rims), AW hub, nice red paint and chrome fenders. It's a small camelback frame, like a Raleigh Mountie and would be good for a kid. I'd be glad to send it to a good home for the cost of shipping. Email me: beandk at comcast dot net.

I am just at the end of a restoration project on a 70s Raleigh sport and the pedals have me stumped.I can see how easy they are to pull apart but the little round clip just doesnt want to come off. Any ideas? they are original raleigh by the way

The post-1973s pedals are not rebuildable - the "clip" (actually a rivet), will not come off on these. If you do remove them, the pedal will be damaged.

Go to www.HIGHWEEL.COM look at the pedals. The web site has some very nice reproductions. At reasonable prices. Ed

WANTED:   Mudflap? posted by: Mike on 7/6/2005 at 4:34:57 AM
Hi does anyone have a source for those mudflaps that used to go on the rear of the front fender, at the bottom? I am guessing they just bolt on to the back using existing equipment that comes with the fender by default. Anyone know if they are still made?

Hmmm... don't know if anyone is manufacturing the genuine article anymore... but I do recall reading somewhere online that someone made very nice "reproduction" mudflaps from.... empty plastic milk jugs.

Don't know where I read it though... Perhaps one of our fellow denizens of the board here has a link...?

I made mine out of leftover roofing rubber. Just cut out the shape you want and secure it with the bolt that holds the fender stay.

A French version currently available. You'd have to create the fitting but nice item. http://www.wallbike.com/berthoud/berthoudracksaccess.htm

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the mudflaps on the '70s DL-1s simply a rubber piece? Don't think they are leather.


   RE:WANTED: Mudflap? posted by Mike on 7/9/2005 at 7:41:55 PM
That leather one looks nice but I'm not really going to go into the whole modification thing. Does anyone have pictures and dimensions for their flap? I may make one from black rubber and make a hole in it and use the fender wire assembly to bolt it on.

   RE:RE:WANTED: Mudflap? posted by Kurt K. on 7/10/2005 at 1:10:13 AM
I'll get the dimensions from my own DL-1 for you Mike - mine is riveted two times into the fender though, as it has the rod stays - not sure if that makes any difference to the shape.

Take care,
