The orphaned arm that Skip sent me had more than just a start of a crack. The crack actually went across the arm and needed some help in finding it. Needless to say the arm is now retired from any service on a bike and now is in the Parts to Art bin. There is a young lady here that takes this stuff in and makes bike art out of it. It will likely live on as some type of art. Smiles, MH

Sorry about the crank arm. Still, a better outcome than it would have gotten here (metal scrappers).

Cast alu gets about 70 cents a pound here. I'll make $30 with the box of cranks in the basement.

Raleigh Supercouse 1973 - local pick-up in San Pedro CA
You might have seen this in the "Craigslist finds - are you looking for one of these?" thread or the "Saved from the Dump/ Catch of the day thread"
Bike is available to anyone who can pick-up in San Pedro, CA (South LA) - no shipping.

Couldn't help myself and went and picked this up a few weeks ago. I decided I have too many projects (and not enough room) to take this one on. I got started on cleaning it up - crank and chromed frame bits cleaned up pretty nicely.




The Good: 1973 Raleigh Supercourse - Carlton - 531 frame - Capella lugs - Complete bike
The Bad: Cracks on welds on the caps of seat stays (apparently a common Raleigh problem?), Paint is beat-up, grime and rust (I got started, crank cleaned up nicely, but plenty left), mis-matched rims, I'm keeping the saddle

Happy to answer any questions

Donated a cf frame to Dream Bikes co-op in MKE.
I put a ton of miles on that frame.
I won't bother with a photo of it, since when I first posted the build to Fifty-plus forum, it drew resounding radio silence.

Edit: This has been spoken for. Thanks for the interest.

Yours for postage, Garmin Edge 500, charger, GSC-10 cadence sensor, and quarter turn mount with large o-rings (for fat bars) and two small o-rings (for vintage bars). A friend who stopped riding a few years ago gave it to me recently. (I use a Wahoo Elemnt Bolt, so don't need it.) I charged it up a few days ago. It still reads 97% charged, so I think the battery is at least okay. I don't have a manual, but it seems pretty easy to figure out. The manual is available online. When I first powered it up, it downloaded a software update. Not sure how it did that, as I gave it no network credentials.

By modern standards, I suspect this is a pretty basic GPS cycle computer. It would probably be useful for someone just getting started or who only wants to track basic info. It also came with two quarter turn mounts. I'm going to keep one mount along with most of the small bar o-rings for my vintage bikes. You can have one mount and all the fat bar o-rings.

SoCaled Hi- tried to PM you, but only have six posts so far. I just picked up a Blackburn stand like the one in your picture. I noticed that the threads on the "clamping knob/ screw" on your stand stick out a lot more (after going through the bottom nut) on your stand. As my stand is now, I can only clamp on smaller diameter tubing. It looks like yours will accommodate larger tubes. Did you acquire a longer clamping screw for your stand?

Nope, mine is as bought. I haven't tried any really thick frames yet, but did put a modern Schwinn MTB with pretty thick aluminum tapered top tub, and it fit just fine. Wondering if yours is a different model/generation or maybe has a bad thread/stuck?

as a shout-out of thanks: delicious gave me a box of spare parts and a few tires (local PU in Berkeley) so want to thank him publicly and note how generous he is!
Thanks!
There's a good chance I will have "leftovers" even after I pick over what I'm keeping and offer the rest to local friends and local co-ops, so...if I DO watch this space for some.
I'd prefer local PU too but...we'll see.

Another kudo to Warren in SF who had first offered 2 free wheels (Campy hubs with Campy tubular rims) that went to another CVer but he replied to me that he had a couple white saddles and ended up giving me one of them for my friend who's been unable to find a replacement for her beloved, but totally BEAT, white Turbo.
Thanks again, Warren!

Free for postage is a pink and white jersey. I guess Carin Cosmetics and Colnago sponsored the team it was made for.




It measures 21 inches pit-to-pit and 31 inches from the top of the collar to the bottom of the tail. I got it a few years ago from Robbie Tunes (still around, just not on BF). I've never used it and likely never will.

I had a similar jersey, same sponsor, years ago but it was too small. This sounds like it will fit perfectly. In other words: I would like to claim this

Damn, it took a long time to find this thread again!

Many thanks to smontanaro for the Carin/Colnago jersey; it fits perfectly, and will see its first ride soon after I come back from WA with my bikes. Only one more week to go before I'm reunited after nearly a year away from them!

I'll be bringing back some other bike-related stuff, and probably clearing out a jersey or two which will be offered here instead of the FSOT thread. Stay tuned.

Stronglight Solida H7 crankset, 170mm. 52t outer ring, 42 inner ring. Some gashes on the NDS crank where the spindle meets the crank arm, but nothing serious. No cracks as far as I can tell. These are going to go to the co-op after a week if there are no takers. Free as long as the taker pays postage. PM me.
