MISC:   Iverson Disc Brake posted by: Dameon on 2/25/2003 at 11:28:26 PM
another iverson q.: I want to buy this Iverson disk brake-can anyone tell me if it's mountable to the hub easily? also maybe a ballpark value-i know he got a deal but i want to give him a worthy offer if it's a good part. Thanks!

   RE:MISC:   Iverson Disc Brake posted by Stacey on 2/26/2003 at 12:20:57 PM
Not sure I understand your question there Dameon. The brake rotor (or disk) should either bolt on to the hub or be keyed and held on the hub with a cir-clip. If you are converting to a disk brake set-up you'll need the hub, disk, and caliper with bracket... plus all the misc. hardware. The disk by itself is no good w/o the other stuff.

   RE:RE:MISC:   Iverson Disc Brake posted by Chris on 3/2/2003 at 10:26:08 PM
If the disk itself is no good without all the other stuff,then that assures me that I'll find loose disks. That's how it works. This is how I find stuff, loose and mising parts.
I have a box of disc brake stuff, broken incomplete bikes with disc units, pads, do hickey's. Different brands, for diffrent bikes and god knows what it goes on and who is looking for it if anybody.
Every know and then I find something all complete and in it's original box and no parts are lost and I hold it in wonderment that It's all there and not missing anything.
Sure, the owner knew what part went with what and he understood how to assemble stuff and make it all usable but he's gone now to the great bicycle shop in the sky. What do ya think I be standing there with his daughter for? Huh? He's passed on, they want this all cleaned out. Hubba hubba! No time to talk, to ask questions, no time to see pictures of the shop, Work, pick it up, do you want that cabinet? Well, load it up!
I'm looking at all these loose parts in plastic drawers and hardly nothing is in original packaging and if you think it's mixed up now you just wait until I get it home! They're in this throw it out, get the money mentality. I'm all interested in their past and all they can think about is the future. The boyfriend is looking at me like Well, what do you want now? I say that she was gonna show me the picture album and let me have some paper literature(posters) and it was like pulling teeth.
Heck, I never even knew that Iverson made disk brakes!

I've had an old bmx frame kicking around for a while, and although I hear they don't make good bases for choppers, this one is somewhat different. It has a single, oval, headtube/downtube, running straight from headtube to rear dropout. It is fat at the front, and splits to the rear. There's no rear or front triangle as such, and I'm thinking maybe this is the kind of bike that would be easy to lengthen... What do you guys think? I'm trying to find a picture of one and having trouble. It's a diamondback turbo, but not the one people think of. The only clue as to its age is one of my friends told me he used to see them around at about 1992.

   RE:MISC:   Considering maming an interesting chopper.. posted by Stacey on 2/21/2003 at 11:55:18 AM
Don't waste your time listening to what others say will or will not "make good bases" for your projects, Rob. Instead, listen to the metal as it tells you what it wants to be. Give value to the creations in you minds eye, for ignoring it causes the eye to go blind.

It's all too easy to take any cantilever frame, squirt some paint, bolt on some shiney bits and call it "Custom". Where would any of the big name car Kustomizers of the '50 be if all they did was to take a 40 Ford and paint flames on it? Cripes, any schmoe can do that! Nah, they took Studebakers... big, slow, cumbersome and UGLY behomoths and by cutting 4" out of the belt line, trimming 2" out of the roof, pulling that lame-azzed flat head 6 and wedging in a Lincoln V-8 with Offy heads and Stromberg 6 pack created rolling works of art that would tear up asphalt by the chunks.

So please, take "The Road Less Travled" (Robert Frost) and mame that Diamondback frame into something totally cool... and hang some pictures for us when you're done!

I'm not sure what would make a cool chopper, but Stacey has it going off! She is da' bomb! Listen to what she says! She has become one with the crafting of metal! Be the frame, grasshopper!

You know, too many forums on the net are full of people who consider themselves better than everyone else, and don't like newcomers. My first post, I get friendly, supportive replies like that. Well, I'm going to see about what parts I'd want to use and all that schtick, and then get onto a welder about making this little diamondback not snap when it's lengthened.If this ever gets done, it will certainly be a while, but I'll be sure to show you if it does. Thanks for the help!

MISC:   Scwhinn Stingray Brakes posted by: Harry on 2/19/2003 at 4:02:59 AM
Hi, today I was looking at krates on ebay, and I saw a picture of one with a brace to hold the brakes on. It was'nt really welded to the frame, it looked more like it was bolted on. I was wondering what this was called, and where I might be able to get one. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Heres the link, on the picture showing the rear brakes it has a brace for the brakes, I would like to know what this is.

   RE:MISC:   Scwhinn Stingray Brakes posted by Ken on 2/23/2003 at 4:02:52 AM
Definantly NOT a Cotton Frame at all. For that matter its not even a 3 or 5 speed frame but one from a coaster brake model. The little adaptor gizzmos were made to do just what is shown, allow a caliper brake to be installed on a bike equiped with coaster brakes. An obvious act of deception on the sellers part.

   RE:MISC: Scwhinn Stingray Brakes posted by stuart on 2/20/2003 at 5:16:39 AM
harr it looks to be something to attach a brake to a frame that was not meant for a free wheel. this might not be a real cotton picker frame, it might be a plain stingray.
hope this helps,

   but do you know what the adapter is called? posted by Harry on 2/28/2003 at 12:39:21 AM
I kinda figured it wasnt a real cotton picker frame, but I just want to know what the adapter is, I have a coaster frame that I want to put hand brakes on. Thanks for the help though
