As I thought, vehicles rate highly in the "wish I still had it" catergory.
What about watches? Much easier to store than cars, motorbikes or bikes.
They don't have to say Rolex to be collectible nowadays - I bought 3 ex WD Smiths W10 watches for a tenner from the local army surplus...
We all probably spend a little more time browsing the various forums nowadays or watching antiques programs on TV, then seeing what people are paying for stuff we discarded,
I got to thinking of what worthless items I got rid of or traded for some similarly worthless junk.
In the early 80s I...
Hi, check out Graces Guide, it's a brilliant resource, you'll see that Bluemels Noweights were made from 1904 and still advertised in 1955! although the shape changed over time
Raleigh Record Aces were fitted with these as standard in the 30s/40s/50s.
I have a set of Bluemels Tuflites which I...
Hi, the rims on mine are 26" x 1 3/8", I originally fitted a pair of Michelin World Tour 1 3/8" tyres but then found out that the clearance in between the chain stays was too small.
After a bit of head scratching and thinking I was going to have to rebuild the wheels with 1 1/4 rims, I...

Yes, please see the pics attached.
Finishing it got delayed due to family problems I'm afraid, but it's complete now.
The BSA chainset has been substituted by a 30s Williams nickel finish one, brake cables fitted, K series gear change fitted, all working and rideable.
Smooth and solid...
For sale here is my 1993 RSP Dynatech M-Trax 700 17” MTB. 2120 tube set – top and down tubes are titanium.
Bought this a couple of years ago to use on holiday in Whitby, it's in good usable condition and fully functioning and had obviously been well looked after by the previous (one) owner.
Hi, most of my alloy polishing is done by hand using foam abrasives pads - 1/2" thick fine grit - to take out most of the fine scratches, they conform nicely to shaped parts, then polish with either Autosol or T-Cut to shine up.
On my 50s rebuilds I like to get the surface finish back to a...
Some more pics if you're interested, this was the all Oyster colour frame, made for one year only - then they changed to the Panasonic team colours. Paint was all original with just a few touch-ups and some new decals, plus a lot of polishing!
