Default Re: The Flying Pigeon

Onward and upward:
The peddle blocks on the very strange peddles from this bike were a problem.
Dry rotted beyond repair and impossible to find replacements .

Solution : Back to the machine shop....
I used UHMW , as I have a large supply of the stuff .

They ended up being a bit to stark white.
My thinking is that they will yellow with use........
These peddles are huge by today's standards.
At 5.50 " compared to a modern peddle at 4.50 , they look and feel a bit large.
Think : Clowns feet....
The bike itself is very large though so they fit right in.
Happy Trails......
