Trexlertown VeloSwap: October 4th.wspokes
Sep 17, 2003 4:09 AM
Anyone else heading down? I will be there once more so stop over to area 63 and 64 and say hi. I will be helping the folks bring EVERYTHING that is left from the shop down and CLEAR it out.

Wants and Needs before I head down...
I was thinking of looking around down there for a inexpensive roadie to set up as a fixie and maybe some fixie parts also. not sure yet and not sold on the idea so we will see as the time gets closer.

So who else is heading down??
70's vintage parts for the Paramount ...Humma Hah

I'm still looking for parts for the 'Mount, although it is ridable as-is. I hope I can get up there this time (I missed spring).

Campagnolo side-pull brakes and Campy levers.
Old-style Cinelli bars and stem (1A?)

If a retro or reproduction Paramount or Schwinn jersey in my size shows up, I'll probably snap that up, too.

I've got that old rescued Peugeot, about a 60 cm or a little larger, if I recall, that I'd gladly give away. Not one of the more sought-after models, but handsome and with pretty good paint and decals. Make a good fixie conversion, but needs a headset.
see you there..wspokes

hopefully I will see you there. I know I won't have any older parts this time. About three years ago I had more older parts there...lots of them. not now though. I have really cut down my stock to usable items for myself and stockpiled campy 8 speed parts for all my rides which is why I LOVE T-town. Where else can you pick up rear derailleurs and front derailleurs for $1. It depends on how large the peugot is...If it fits...I am interested. I normally ride a 59 c-t but 60 will work...see you there!
How 'bout a 61?Humma Hah

I measured it last night, 24" center of top tube to center of BB. Works out to about 61 cm. What the heck, the price is right!

... since you have a booth, you could probably sell it for $5 or so.
