A pair of Raleighs from the dump, I know the Activator is a POS, but it has some useable parts. The blue thing intrigues me, any ideas. It looks like it would make a fun nippy s/s....

£5 for the two. :)

That clear Crud Catcher literally doubles the price of the Activator 2, pity it's not my size, I've been looking for one!

I just bought this absolute dog of a bike.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170919848479

Obviously put together just for this sale. 2 sets of headset bearings to run the 1" fork in the 1-1/8" frame, a mix of parts, etc etc. It's even running 2 entirely different brake setups !
However the frame is my size.

Anyone know a good framebuilder? This one is going to need a full check-up for straightness and a repair to the seat tube
(look at that seatpost angle, it's only 1" in the frame and has bent the tube open at the bottom of the cutout)

And while it's there, it'll probably have the brake bosses removed and disc tabs welded on. Let's go crazy :twisted:

They found a NOS Sugino 700c disk wheel kit in the back room while cleaning up at the LBS on Saturday. I'm workin' on the deal as we speak.

Found just the drive side half of a Tioga Disk Drive Pro as well. Kinda useless unless someone has a wheel with a broken drive side in need of replacing.
