A 1956 Sturmey-Archer three-speed AW hub. I'm picking up a 1956 Raleigh Sports step-through to rebuild for my girlfriend, and the bike is an early SW three-speed model (SW hubs were a clever design prone to issues due to manufacturing constraints). I'm very curious about that hub, and I'm going to rebuild it based on Sheldon's instructions for making an SW reliable. However, I wanted a backup just in case. I'll service and build the '56 AW into the rear wheel instead if necessary. If the SW works out perfectly, I'll have a hub from the high quality point for Sturmey-Archer to use on a future bike, or for replacement parts for my AG hub installed in my own Raleigh.

A weight weenie part.......but not for my bikes....


It's an aluminum jack and hand crank for a 97 Mazda RX-7.
My 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata, like many new cars did not come with a jack of even a spare wheel to minimize weight and raise MPG.
Jack weighs only 3 pounds. The standard jack from Mazda weighs at least double that.
A lot of new Miata owners add these lightweight jack to their new cars because on of the car's main design feature, is it's very light curb weight and they do not want to add too much with a heavy jack.

That is a beauty! I can't get another Miata off my mind since I sold mine. Easily the best driver car I've owned. Had a C5 Z06 Corvette since, a VW GTI, and now my M-Sport BMW 340i. All fun cars in their own right and all fall short to the Miata for driver experience.

Always loved the very unique looks of the 3rd gen NC. Your NC looks beautiful!!
If I could have afforded a Miata earlier, I would have gotten one too, in metallic grey or black like yours was.
The styling still looks unique and fresh even after some years already. A hadsome, modern more muscular look.
Good thing it still had a spare tire and jack unlike the new ones that always makes me worry in the back of my mind whether I can get it back home if I ever have a bad flat... Just don't trust the Fix-a-Flat style, tire goop repair kit they now put in the cars instead.
I still need to find a donut spare from a Prius (4 bolt, 100mm BCD) to put in my trunk to complete my flat tire package.

I have experienced 5 flats over the years
3 might have worked with the goop and pump that some carmakers provide. 2 - no way! Sidewall gash.
that goop always makes for trouble for the tire shop too.
Then there are those Minis and some minivans with the runflat tires... $$$

but I'm old and think 60 or 55 series is sporty enough.

I like basic black - or a combination of black/white when it comes to cycling apparel. Couldn't beat this for less than 30 bux:



The 52t NR chainring will serve as a spare for the Bianchi, which currently is the only bike sporting a big ring smaller than 53t. I'm thinking of dusting off my Dremel and poking some holes in this one.

Hey Drilliem, I love that jersey......and you should add the chainring next time you get one silkscreened. Looks awesome.

Turbo is always good.......period correct so nice.....the red, blue, or other ones are getting so rare and expensive.
I would guess you might have a celeste one on one of your Bianchi's?
Been seeing some vintage Bianchi lo pros lately....one hanging from the ceiling of a local bike shop.

Adding lightness to the Vitus. I oughta shave off a hundred grams compared to the boat-anchor Laprade I've got in there.


I kind of feel bad dimpling this time capsule of a seatpost with the Vitus set screw, but sacrifices must be made for lightness.

That is GORGEOUS! A Raleigh Pro was the first really good bike I ever got to ride. As a teenager used to mid-level Schwinn products, I was kind of angry that the Raleigh Pro had existed all my life and I was only being introduced to it at 14.
