    Take apart an old disc brake

    That caliper is wicked cool. The outside half would look great detailed.

    Schwinn OCC StingRay 3-Speed hub

    The bicycledesigner.com parts should be exactly what I need. I noticed that not only are the rotor adapters out of stock, LOTS of other stuff is too. Is this common with the bicycledesigner.com website?

    Schwinn OCC StingRay 3-Speed hub

    Jim Wilson from pedalchopper.com says the adapter he sells for taking the freewheel sprocket off the rear hub on a single speed OCC is the same thread but having both hubs at hand to measure with my dial calipers (Starrett brand, very accurate), I have to question that. Unless I'm measuring the...

    Schwinn OCC StingRay 3-Speed hub

    I thought of that and I measured the freewheel sprocket journal on a spare single speed OCC StingRay because I'll aware that Jim Wilson at Pedalchopper has a threaded adapter for those. It appears to be about .125" bigger in diameter. I'll contact him since he's likely experienced with this...

    Schwinn OCC StingRay 3-Speed hub

    I just picked up a 3-speed Schwinn OCC Sting Ray and would like to add a disc brake to the left (opposite the chain cog). Since the factory 3-speed OCC choppers use rim brakes, there are no brake parts on the hub itself. Amazingly, this hub (SX-RB3) is designed for a BAND brake! While I'm sure...

    Cannibal on a budget

    I did finally score one of these. It's a well kept 2004 3-speed in medium metallic blue. I like it but it's too nice to cut up and kind of a pain to ride because it's got that "chopper flop" in the front end. I bought it for a decent price, so when the weather breaks next spring, I'll probably...

    Chopper bars

    I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have a set of handlebars from the Roadmaster built Sportster bicycle they're willing to part with? I want them for a Nirve Cannibal and they need to be 7/8" on the knurl in the middle.

    Cannibal on a budget

    I'm smitten by the Nirve Cannibal/Switchblade bikes but can't afford to be bitten by the price. I'm not keen to lay out several hundred dollars for a new bicycle and then start cutting on it. After much searching, I found this. Probably made on the same production line as the Nirve bikes...

    Who Did This?

    You will notice that it DIDN'T sell......zero bids. Given the chance, we'd all like to find something to sell with a profit margin like this, but it's disheartening to see when you know it's availible to anyone for far less with free shipping if they knew where to look. The only way I can see...

    Girvin Spring

    I believe my fork is a Vector I. The vacant area that used to be occupied by the elastomer is about 1 5/8" X 2 1/2" so this spring will fit. I'm not sure about the spring rate, but the linkage is about a 1.3 to 1 ratio and I'm a big guy. http://www.mcmaster.com/#9573k82/=nm0yof MHF

    Girvin Spring

    I recently bought a Girvin Vector girder fork from ebay and was wondering if anyone had some advice on swapping in a spring instead buying new polyurethane or an expensive coilover conversion kit. I have an old mountain bike rear coilover shock with a 750 lb/in spring in it, but I'd rather just...
