This is a last desperate call before I throw them away.
I'm sitting next to the trash can, staring at these. Dropping them in, pulling them out looking at them, it's a real dillema. They are too nice to just throw out. One pair of 14 x 1 3/8 raleigh R.S.W. 14 front wheels. Two front wheels. Rims, spokes, and two 20 hole front sturmey archer front hubs. minus axles, cones and bearings.

They have to go because if I keep them, I'll decide to go looking for a bike to use them on and then the bike bug will bite again as it did with the R.S.W. 16, Raleigh 20's, Choppers, D.L.1.'S Sports, Superbes and so on. and soon I'll have 27 Raleigh R.S.W. 14 kids bikes in every color.

Also, Raleigh chopper front rims, three of them, used, 28 hole fronts.

My alchamistic experiment to magically change N.O.S. Sturmey- Archer S.W. parts into vintage N.O.S. Sturmey- Archer A.S.C. 3 speed fixed gear hub parts has failed. Weeks of chanting and mixing potions and this stuff just sits there on the work bench. Nothing happens.

E- mail if interested in the parts.

Ok, I saved the 14 inch rims. My reasoning is to now go find the bike it goes to and build it up for my daughter.
Already have a project in the works for her but I guess a second bike.
Oh, I'll get the bike and have it looking mint and she'll ride it with us and we'll have a wonderful time.

Hopefully, I won't decide to keep on collecting more of these R.S.W. 14 bikes. Hopefully it'll stop there.

The key, sir, is moderation. Of course, I've been known to take moderation to excess, so I relate to your dilemma completely.

Best of luck!

AGE / VALUE:   FOR SALE: STURMEY- ARCHER S.W. PARTS posted by: Christopher on 4/17/2007 at 4:35:24 AM
I have a bunch of N.O.S. Sturmey- Archer S.W. parts for sale. New, hub gear drivers, New right hand ball cups, cones, those crazy, crescent shaped, springless pawls, the long springs, and a lot of other totally new, never used parts. No complete hubs- just parts. - p.s. Also, indicator chains, two piece- early type rods and bits and bats for the S.W.three speed

I would like to ship it all together in one lot to one lucky S.W. hub riding person but will break up individually if asked. the cones and new ball cups and new drivers with new races are the exciting part. But hey, it's all N.O.S. e- mail if interested.

Gents I need the "driver" assembly for a S/A S3C. I have one that apparently broke a pawl and that wiped out the driver's casting and even took a good nick out of the pawl's roll pin.

First places I checked were my 3 LBSs and I found two drivers for AW hubs but not this one for the coaster-brake S3C. Same with Harris Cyclery. Struck out with Loose parts or whatever that place's name is.

I'll need the driver complete with the pawls, pins, and springs.

(got my fingers crossed)

Despite my long standing aversion to anything coaster brake-ish. It still crept into my collection of small parts. I really doubt I will have one of those but I will look and post back here.

Kinds stupid of S.A. not to make the thing be able to use the basic A.W. 3 speed driver, but noo, it had to be special.

Striking out with Harris and Loose Screws is not a good sign.

OOOH, recieved your e- mail and I don't know if I have one of those. I will look.

What a weird animal this one is.

Wow! Had my tail kicked by this request. Nope. No sir, don't have it.
I suggest you replace the hub unless you are preepared to wait and keep searching.

AGE / VALUE:   Axle nut posted by: Robert on 4/16/2007 at 2:44:24 PM
Help! I need a rear axle nut for a 1972 Raleigh Superbe. I'm told it is a 7/16" fine-thread SAE (not metric). I can't find one locally. Does anyone know where I can find these? If I could locate someone with a good supply, I'd buy a dozen to have them as backups for my other English 3 speeds. Thank you in advance for any assistance.

Sturmey Archer axles are 13/32 x 26 TPI and you are not going to find those at your local hardware store.

I can sell you a dozen, left or right? Lefts are plain hex nut, rights are the tall ones with the indicator hole.

They will be shiny new Taiwan aftermarket nuts, but they work fine. Or, I have used Sturmey Archer which might look better on an older bike.
