WANTED:   English bike bits posted by: Geoff Rogers on 3/5/2001 at 9:29:22 PM
I am looking for a pair of 50's pedals appropriate for a 1952 Indian Scout. They should be Phillips type. I also want some handlebar grips for the same bike and a pair of fenders and chainguard for a 1980 Raleigh DL-1 "Tourist". The chainguard need not be an enclosed gearcase type. Third, I need a Dunelt/Raleigh Sports style non-gearcase style chainguard, any color. Finally, how about original British saddlebags? And, of course, tire pumps, in almost any condition. Will trade a decent '62 Humber Pegasus lady's bike, good rider, nice chrome, original paint, and/or a good '65 lady's Dunelt in similar condition.

MISC:   help in identifying a tool(?) posted by: Hugh F. Mowat on 3/4/2001 at 1:41:43 PM
A couple of years ago I found an object - probably a tool - at a collectibles show. This item was obviously unused,and consisted of a large roller turned by a crank, and a smaller roller against it. The pressure of the small roller could be increased by turning a threaded lever. The whole thing was mounted on a post which could be screwed to a workbench. My theory was that it was for either straightening bicycle fenders or making a new fender from a strip of metal. Could anybody please enlighten me? and, perhaps send me an image if they have such.

My father has one mounted to his bench in his sheetmetal shop. I know it is not for fenders, although it is along the same idea. We have a fender roller as well. I'll ask him.

it sounds like a english wheel. it is made to roll sheet medal.

   RE:MISC:   help in identifying a tool(?) posted by Hugh F. Mowat on 3/6/2001 at 9:33:29 AM
Thanks to all who replied. This tool is not an 'English wheel' where the two wheels bear down on the metal opposite each other. In this case the upper wheel is shaped like an hour-glass, and the lower wheel matches it in profile. The shape produced is narrow and shallow. Like a bicycle fender, rather than a gutter. The tool measures 14" front to back, and is 11" high. It is of light construction...flat bar and thin-wall tube. A bead-rolling machine used in a sheet metal shop is of rugged, cast construction.
