Re: togglechaintour bikes

My Money is on the Royal Tourist - I have a 1951/2 Catalog also (as well as the other one, which is 1938, not 1937 :oops:) - Royal Blue as standard, but black was certainly an option, as was the (presumably) FG Hub. Dry Battery Unit also Standard, "All Parts Humber-Chromium Plated" - If I ...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Would that not detract from your task of collecting all the Nottingham brands? Tim2, just how big is this warehouse of yours? :? I was in a former Tram Depot, which, to be fair was quite large. I'm now in the Irish countryside and have several sheds. Some of which are also quite large. I'm only up ...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

One of the TI subs Tim, part of the Raleigh empire. Steve will correct me here, but to my knowledge the Reliance (Reliant) Motor Company (as in Robin) was an off-shoot of the Raleigh Motorcycle division. They kept the Reliance name for some export bikes to the US (along with Robin Hood). Shame it's ...

I've been after some of those for longer than I can remember - and I scour the for sale section here daily!

Is it you selling the Westrick rims on fleabay at the moment? I was about to bid on them.

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Sorry, I've been afk for a few days. My comments on Mike's bike were pureley subjective, as I'm keener on restoration than modernisation. As much of a fan of Raleigh bikes as I am (god knows I've enough of 'em) I think we can all agree that he's done a truly wonderful job of polishing that particula...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Very very nice Mike. Not wishing to sound critical here, it's a question of taste, but I feel a cottered chainset would have been more apropriate perhaps?
Stunning colour though!

Re: togglechaintour bikes

Rob, was it you who thought he had a source of D-section steel to make mudguards stays out of? If so, can you let me in on the secret please! I'm still un-booked and distinctly unsure if I'll make it. Cathy is a definite no (we are still on speaking terms!) I think I've now found a local (and cheapi...

Re: togglechaintour bikes

If Sturmey Archer made stuff in stainless steel, they may look something like this ------ http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v601/Misseelee781/pulley-1.jpg --- and they'd stay shiny forever :roll: I didn't make it for one of my bikes, but for a fellow toggler. No names, no pack drill, but the bike s...

Don't shoot me I'm only the (unpaid) messenger. :mrgreen: uuuuuuggggghhhh... Must... resist... temptation.... I have a 1953 Clubman already, but it's a Hu...
