  3. Looking for a vintage (late 60s to early 80s) DHC bicycle frame, any condition, size aprox. 58 to 60cm CTC.

Any suggestions, advice, or assistance in getting this project off the ground will be much appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Around about June last year (2016) I was wondering around Cash Converters and came across this very sad looking ladies Peugeot. I thought it would make a great restoration project but they wanted waaaay too much for it. Then in November I was again wandering around the same Cash Converters and spotted her, now even sadder and hiding under some wet suits and dumbells. She was so tired of being neglected she had to seek the comfort of the neoprene and the security of the heavy weights. and someone had taken away her front wheel I needed to rescue this old lady and give her a well deserved and precious retirement. Pics from when I brought her home. Gave her a wheel from one of my other road bike so she can at least stand up straight. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170101_155240.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170101_155305.jpg Was loving the details that were still alive from her younger days http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/stickers.jpg Because these decals are so precious and fragile I decided to preserve them and the paint rather than repaint. So after much cleaning and careful sanding I covered her in 3 coats of clear gloss paint. This preserves the color and decals and keeps her looks. The front fork had Chrome calf height socks but the chrome was very pitted and couldn't be saved without rechroming. So I gave her thigh high white socks. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/forks.jpg Looking fantastic after the cleaning and gloss coats http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_082117.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_082318.jpg Next were the brakes. These are very special. They seem to be a hybrid between caliper and cantilever. They got stripped, cleaned and polished. Added some modern brake pads to help her stop better. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_233101.jpg http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/IMG_20170106_233126.jpg The front derailleur was cracked and could not be saved. I cleaned and polished the chain rings and brought the inner one to the outside. http://krunkrace.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/crank.jpg to be continued....
  5. Hi guys. Proud to announce that I am new to the forum, and that I have committed myself to one crazy idea: I want to ride the Momentum 94.7 on a single speed bike. I decided this after I recently bought a SS project bike, weighing in at only a few kilo's. Rides like a dream, and even wheelies spontaneously. So I decided that the 94.7 is a challenge I set myself, and that I would like to do those tough km's for myself, and a charity. I need some advice on this topic though - if any of you guys have done it before, or know of people who will be riding fixed gear or single speeds in 2014 Momentum 94.7 - please share your thoughts. Any charities that need some extra support are also welcome to be presented here so that I can consider them! Thank you in advance, Gus
