    Dyno Bike pics

    Sorry my phone takes very average photos... I've been slowly re-building this Glide Deluxe, I picked up a 3 speed nexus wheelset from a wrecked Electra womens cruiser, added fat franks (removed the logo), replaced original sun damaged saddle and trashed grips. Stripped down, polished & all...

    I know you used those 3" Aerovane tires on a past build (a cruiser with a one-off tank you made, I think?), but are they still available anywhere?

    Love it! Can we see some shots of it in different backgrounds for voting?

    This turned out great! I love how the horn looks like it's curling out of the stem, cool! Nice photo for voting too, great angle, and the background shows off all the colours nicely

    That's awesome! Well done on the sale price too : ) It's always a cool ending with this kind of story. I regret most of my sales too lol ...and yet another one soon comes along promising more ...a better fit ...shinier or rarer parts :crazy: ...or even the Holy Grail on the wish list!

    Wow! They're really not expensive at all. But we're meant to be frugal at the moment. Dammit. Maybe I can get them delivered to a friends house...

    Slingshot stem - How to stop bars slipping?

    Hiy'all - Anyone got any tricks or tips? I don't have any bars that 'officially' fit - but then we don't take too kindly to officially round hereabouts anyways. I know you can buy a knurling tool but they're not in my budget for a one-off. Although now that I'm typing this all out , maybe I...

    Trouble this ad ok?

    I agree, good bike, Raleigh Sports are a great ride, also agree with the strikes against. You could hold out for that price and someone may eventually bite. It's a shame coz it's such a classic, looks perfect, and prolly rides perfect too. Or you could keep hold of the brooks and other more...

    Cool, where do you get the cards printed?

    Strange Dark

    Jeebers man, sorry to hear about your tools... I've really enjoyed seeing your builds. If you're anything like me you'll just keep building anyway with whatever you can find lying around. Adjustable spanner? check! Screwdriver? check!
