1972 Raleigh Sports Progress

Progress has been made. Once again those cotter pins have proved to be difficult.

The drive side popped out with a couple of stern whacks of the hammer, the other side wouldn’t budge. I ended up drilling it out with no damage to the crank or spindle.

Judging by the grease inside the BB, this bike hasn’t been ridden in years. The cups look good so if the weather here in Toronto clears up it should be back on the road next weekend.

Front and back hubs cleaned and re packed with new tires courtesy of George at Parkdale Bicycles at 1428 Queen Street West.

Re assembly has started. I will replace the pedals with either some new MKS pedals or some old Raleigh pedals from the spares bin.

I picked up a slightly used Brooks Professional saddle yesterday from my friend George at Parkdale Bicycles.P1180983.JPG

Not sure where it will find a home but I’ve got a bike in mind.
