Finally found what I was looking for, a natural leather tool pouch to hang behind my B66. Mind you it WAS a 1st aid or ammunition pouch of the Chinese Army at one time, but it looks smart. In order to attach it, I had to partly diss-assemble the seat, remove the clips provided to attach toolbags, rivet said new toolpouch to Brooks clips,(nice copper rivets, no one's gonna unbuckle that baby!) and re-assemble the saddle.

O.K. so no problems, and the new Sino-English toolpouch looks great. But as I'm riding away into the sunset and hit a pothole, my seat takes a nosedive. I stop and tighten the nuts as tight as I dare, and go off again only to take another nose-dive going over some partly embedded railway tracks. Now I don't dare tighten the bolts anymore for fear of stripping the bolt or damaging the nuts.

Any advice out there?

Like so many things, the older the sadlle clamp the better. The steel was harder and the radial creases that mate and hold the seat still are more defined. They just work better.

Time to find a new (old) saddle clamp.

Ed - Nice to see you're still into cycling. How's the catering/foodservice career doing these days?

Hi there,

I'm not sure how much success I'll have with this but I'm looking for the parts for the fork lock on my Raleigh Superbe. From what I can tell, the innards are gone (no pin, etc.) My guess is that I would need to find a bike for parts and use it, but I thought I would try here. Any help appreciated!

I'm wondering if anyone else uses scrap collectors as a bike source.You know the guys that drive around checking trash for metal and remove old washers and dryers etc to scrap.Here's the deal I told them I would give them $2 for each bike they bring me.Now here is what I think is important I give them $2 for every bike regardless of size or condition.Then I check them out and get what ever I want out of them and give the rest back to them to scrap.
Averaging about 5 bikes a week Probably spent about $60
so far with these results a set of inexpensive 20" 48 spoke alloy wheels,A Schimano alloy chainring/crank assembly,a fair c.79 Raleigh Sprite,a nice cheap ladies Schwinn 10 speed,a decent straight 25" Raleigh Capri frame and fork, and the topper yesterday a BCC built 56 Royal Hunter 3 speed from Holland.Rusty wheels and fenders(mud guards)But a very nice frame with good paint and decals and proper possibly repairable trigger.It's like a little treasure hunt and I'm keeping some good stuff out of the recyclers hands.Give it a try.
