| still on the search for a fork for a white raleigh twenty. the one i've got has a pretty badly bent steer tube. if you have one you can part with, please post and/or email me at the address above, removing the spam harvest blocking text.|
| Seven pairs of used sports mudgards,plus odds and ends that I could get in the bike box. several chaingards.Mudgards Colors are torquez,brown,yellow,chrome,green,and house paint.You pay UPS shipping cost only.I'm guessing $20 but that's just a guess.First to email me gets them---sam|

| Dreamed this one up last night:|
No, it never existed. Would love to build one, but I have doubts as to whether anyone carries a BB shell that would fit the wild convergence of tubing at the stoker's bottom bracket. Then try to find an adaquate BB spindle...perhaps use a conventional spindle made for 24 TPI and hide the incorrect crank/chainwheels under the pie-plates?
I was at a loss as to how to mount a tasteful rear handlebar, and came up with this rather disgusting design - any suggestions?
I highly doubt the horribly inneffcent rod brakes that I sketched out are sufficient to stop a machine of this size or weight. Possibly rod-operated drum brakes in their place?

The strocker bars would work better on a tandem type seat post.It's a seat post that has a bar welded across the top,T shape in stead of old 7 shape.The rear part is square and allows for adj of the rear bars.This wouldn't be too hard a kustom,you would want to use a very over sized tube to connect the BBs.Using the enclosed gard would make it more difficult as you would need a cross over chainset.And many english tandems were Male/male type ,this would be a little stronger for this as you would be making it from standard (tubing sized) frames---Tandem drums would be a good chose for brakes---sam
| You see the 28" wheel tandems on Ebay occasionally. Much like your sketch w/SA drum brakes. They're impossible to ship cheaply; that's why I don't have one! |

throwbackbikes is my name.
If you need something ask and i'll list it.
| Does anyone know if it is possible to "switch" out just the outer sheathing of the brake cables? OR, does anyone have an old set for a men's Sports to sell? |
My brakes "work" OK but the plastic sheathing is torn or missing in several places. Also, one of my cables is black and the other a sort of "tan" (perhaps formerly white) color. Also, is there a product you can use to "coat" or wrap the shifter cable where it is bare alongside the top tube to prevent it from scratching the paint (further)? Thanks all
| You could maybe go to an electrical supply house and get some heat-shrink tubing. It is not too hard to find short pieces at Radio |
Shack or other general interest stores, but if you want to cover the whole cable, you will need to get a roll. Try to get tubing that just fits over the cable, otherwise, when the rubber shrinks, it will be very thick and stiff.
