  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    Take the back spring in to an industrial hardware supply place. They should have rolls of spring steel wire...sometimes called "piano wire". Get some the same dia. and make your own spring.

    Or, post a message in the WANTED section of this forum and get the part you need. Gary

    And keep your eye out for a throw away Varsity, maybe even ask at your LBS, they sometimes have bikes 'dropped off and sitting out back'.
