Folding steel panier racks

These were literally saved from the dump and I have no use for them. Free to whomever can use them. You pay shipping from eastern Pennsylvania. As the pix shows there are two, one for each side of a rear rack. Decent shape but some rust as you'd expect from neglect. When opened up the are about 7 1/2" deep. Mounting clips included and the two latches to hold them closed both work. Much like the cages the milk man used when he delivered milk to our front porch (OH, how ancient, how quaint, how hopelessly out of touch with the youth of today!!!)

PM or emails would be best. I don't check this thread and "mentions" quit working on my Safari OS years ago after one of the SW "improvements".

Edit: racks are gone. Now....gone where? Working on it.

Glass bottles with paper lids, yes. I don't think Helms had routes in Schenectady, NY. Our bakery was Freihofers. Long gone.

I think we still have Freihofers in the Hudson Valley. We also have Heidelberg bread which I like a lot.

Not sure if Freihofer's is still a going concern (we moved away from the Capital District in 1999), but they used to sponsor a 5k Run for Women every year. (Looks like it's still held.) My wife and a few of her friends used to run it every year.

According to a UPI article I found, the original Freihofers, in Troy, quit home delivery and those trucks I n 1972. It was then all sold to General Foods in 1987. Like Motobecane, there are bikes labled as such but it's nowhere near the same. Yes, I think whom ever now owns the name may still be putting it on shelves

"Anybody's Bike Book" is a real gem! Humorous vintage instructions for the repair of vintage bikes. I haven't read the other but would guess that it is also a fine book.

I'd like the Bike Bag Book if you'll split up the pair. I still have my copy of Anybody's Bike Book so don't really need it.

Pair of Mavic CXP30 rims (622/700c 32h) for the price of shipping or free pickup in Houston. These were the rims on a wheelset I bought from Colorado Cyclist in 1997. When I took them apart a couple years ago, there was some light corrosion at the spoke holes, but just a bit of dust, no pitting. Brake track is almost perfect -- I'm not a hard braker. Perfectly serviceable and not ugly beyond their nature. Don't like them, will never use them, and don't want them -- hopefully, somebody feels differently.
Ladder not included.

Miyata 700 x 32c wire bead Radial tire. Have no need for it and don't want to go through hassle of shipping or selling.

Anyone in the Calgary area willing to give this a new home? Not sure if they are ridable, but maybe they might serve as a relic to an enthusiast.

if no one is interested, I'll toss them in the garbage.

Pair of dark anodized Aurora (Trek branding, mid-90's) 700c eyeletted 32 hole rims in very good condition. New rug not included.
Brake track on one shows some wear, other one looks brand new. Yours for the actual cost of shipping, likely around $20, or pick up for free in the DC/NoVA area. Easier/faster to e-mail me at rccardr@cox.net but if not, then...PM

Mailed the two CXP30 rims from Houston to Bellevill, IL today and price was $12.38 for the 3lb 12oz package. Used a box that Niagara had mailed to me with rims in it. Square about the same size as the irms.

Not long ago, dweenk sent me this Sturmey XRF-8 v1 hub (36h) for cost of shipping, with the caveat that the shifter was broken and it wasn't tested.

I fixed the shifter, but after lacing it up for my Gazelle commuter project, it wouldn't grab 4th or 6th. So I took it apart, checked it for wear (found very little), flushed the grease, re-lubed it with ATF and marine grease on the bearings per Dan Burkhart's recommendations, and put it back together. Now, maybe 10% of the time, you may get 4th gear. The other 90% of the time you'll get 2nd (or maybe it's first?), and it'll drive you up the wall. Also, sometimes you might grab a gear (fifth or sixth, IIRC) and get two other wildly different ratios before the pawl(s) for the correct ratio finally lock into place. Full story is somewhere here in this thread: https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...e-again-4.html

Whatever the case, I've decided this hub isn't for me. I've checked with dweenk and he gave me the thumbs up to pass it on again for the cost of shipping (a Medium Flat Rate box). You get hub and shifter and whatever problems are associated with them. That's it. Also, no cable anchor bolt; the threads stripped on the original.

The other thing is that you'll have to wait until I can find time to de-lace the wheel (thankfully, a Nexus 7 will work with the same spoke lengths - now to find one...) but if you can wait a week or three, I'm ready to take names for whoever wants to throw their hat into this ring...

Anyone interested in vintage tubular tires? have a few matching sets and singles
I'll put up pics and more info if there is interested. They are not dry rotted, though some may need tube repair.
Shipping shouldn't be much folded in a medium box.
