    From the ‘66 Hercules. The BSA didn’t have the cool chain ring though.

    She's a super-clean beauty. Please don't try shifting while pedaling.

    That crankset is suspiciously close to the cranks used in most of the ZZR/Romet bicycles...:39:

    the dramatic photo.... IMG_1929 (2).JPG

    First ride today and I really like this thing, The wheels run smooth, and the hub shifts and brahes as it should. The saddle will need to break in for me so that will get a quick oil treatment to soften up. The one issue is that I need to change out the crankset as the non-drive side pedal pulled out after about 6 miles. I remember it not threading in smoothly but there wasn't any indication that it was going fail. It wasn't a ruined fit like if it had been cross threaded...just maybe a previous mishap with the reverse thread at some point? Either way, I have a replacement in my spares bin so no worries.

    If Kingfish likes it, that's almost the same thing as winning, right?
