    I'd like to get a prize deal going like we did for the MBBO. I'll throw my "CHERRY" Sports Special Brake Lever (DIA COMPE) in the prize bucket.

    Good start, are those actually made by Dia-Comp ? or knockoff ? I think I have some 'Cherry' brand calipers (not nos though), if I find em I could toss one in the pool.
    (Always makes me smile to see Roadwarriors post, with the Levittown, reminds me of my second favorite musical artist, Tony Carey, who had a LP witht he Levittown name )( apologies for going off topic, like that never happens on RRB :) ...

    So far as I know it's a real Dia-Compe lever. I've used these on a couple of my builds. Very nicely made. I believe this to be a NOS part. The newer levers are a little different. I can't find and info on Cherry International Inc., Columbus, Ohio. This is printed on the packaging. Cherry Int. is probably the distribution company in the US. Dia-Compe is made in Osaka, Japan.

    I've got more squadron decals. So... the winner will get an assortment of U.S. Navy F/A-18 squadron "Zappers". Like this...

    I would like to sponsor a prize. Calling it the Elementary Award for the a simple and elegant build. This will simply be a trophy! I will post a pic of the trophy after I get it mounted for display.

    I have decided to send my brake lever to whoever get the least amount of votes.
    Give 'em a brake! If it's a tie I'll pick the one I like least.:confused:
