  2. Didn't you post under a different name years ago?
  3. Early on we experimented with internal geras via a Sturmey Archer hub that was triggered by a brake lever. If adjusted right, it would bypass the middle gear. Canoga kooks started the trend I think.
  4. You got the Haro or the Dirt Slinger from the Finish Line?
  5. Araya Model 17(3). The mini-cycle ones were the model 105 and later called 106 when the BMXers started using them.
  6. Sod is going to love this one. 2 speed kickback https://handsomecycles.com/products/eagle-2-speed-kickback-hub-silver-36h
  7. Maybe bad light on picture Pedal threads good on the drive side? Will weigh crank ASAP too.
  8. I tried finding the weights, but no luck. I'm pretty certain the alloy ones are a bit lighter though. I do know they GS BB was the same weigh until they went to the 5 arm version. I figure Truly can check those. I have a set of alloy ones on a Raleigh competition but would have to remove them and all that.
  9. Campagnolo 3320 Crank Gran Sport crank Sweet! One of my big regrets is selling the one I had when I moved up to WA. They were available for a few years and came on early mid level bikes such Atala and the ones on my 74 Mirella. You can see these in the 71 catalog, was supposedly replaced by the 3 pin alloy version later but still show in the 75 catalog. They were both replaced by the Campagnolo Gran Sport 5 arm crank the E.K. ran on his Torker.
  10. Not sure. It's yuge though. It was handy so I put it on there.
  11. Thanks for the comments. A few other ones coming up. Moto Pro Frame, Fork and rear wheel. Araya second Gen 7b front with 105 spokes Cheng Shin Rear tire. Carlisle Aggressor Front. Tange Headset and BB Takagi crank KKT pedals Addicks spider and sprocket Schwinn seat clamp. Generic steel post. Kashimax saddle Unknown stem and bars Spliced together chain. :-) Viking number plate 1 First gen Oury and 1 Mach grip
  12. Useless trivia: If you go a couple of blocks north and right of Entradero, you'll hit Bob "Oz" Osborn's house over on Arvada.
  13. A Bendix Redband hub gave its life for it so it was my way to memorialize it. :-)
  14. A little Moto Pro radness. Usual thanks to Dan Goins
  15. Sugino 82 Specs. Note the weighs and sizes available
  16. Legitimate questions and appreciated. Wheel is centered though it does look off by a lot in the picture. Don't know why. The other details deal with the way I try to build a bike to reflect what I actually did on that specific time frame. It changes as the bike time line progresses. Rear tire. The ads of the day ( trying to find a pic of it) showed the tire as designed as a rear, therefore no side knobs. It did quickly become a the front tire to have as the transition to 1.75 tires rear tire happened. I always liked the moto look of tire so if I build a bike as a 75, I just put it on the rear. Zip ties: I know it looks cleaner if they are clipped, but again, a mid 70s thing as I never clipped back in the day and most of the bikes I built from that time frame usually are long. The later bikes do have them clipped. The link: just messing with you Mike Hey. But again, like the rear tire,, a moto reference of the day. Totally dug John's details. There's other unseen details that are cool to me such as running uncaged bearings on the coaster and trying to find the "right" inner tubes that would have been American made. One of the tubes had a massive blowout way back when and it has a huge patch on it. And lastly, I have the satisfaction that I'll never be as old as Spike or Sod. :-)
  17. Yes, but you were just making fun of it. :-)
  18. Thanks guys.. To answer the question,, Monark was a Ballon tire manufacturer famous for the Silver King model. These came from cranks came from Joe Pernice. My connection to that crank is that in the stone-age, I could not afford a set of 7" Ashtabulas so Tom DeRosier of Tom's Bikes Shop gave me a set he had on his used parts bin. They were pretty soft and lasted until I had enough money for the Ashtabula:-) Mr. Hey, the reason for the colored Clip on the master link is that Malcolm Smith and other ISDT (and some MX) racerss of the days would paint theirs on their MX chains so they could locate the master link quicker. Useless trivia for $100 Alex.
