Heck, there are two things that even I have no clue what they are or what they do.
There are so many amazing experts on this forum. So on Tuesdays when we should be paying attention to work but it’s sunny out and we really want to bike, I present to you a box of random things for you to help identify.

Fork crowns, lugs, bottom bracket shells, cantilever/centerpull brake studs, and dropouts.

Au contrare. These aren't frame building doohickies, these are doohickies that framebuilders use with other doohickies, which they hold together with a framebuilding thingamajig.

Is this the colnago? Didn’t know it came as a kit. Fork doesn’t look chromed to me, but what do I know.

Spotted an aluminum bracket shim for ye olde cannondale handlebar bag.

Also front derailleur hangers, stay caps, fork blade reinforcing tangs, bridge reinforcing tangs, shift lever bosses, derailleur cable tunnels. One lonely Huret dropout.

It looks like the kit assembled for me to have a frame built at Doug's shop over the next few months. Please PM me on where to send the box. Smiles, MH
