Brazing not an option Cartrich?? A far superior 'fix' and properly done, will last. I had a cast mixing elbow on the diesel in my sailboat brazed and it lasted 20 years before cracking again. Lots of heat there and with the constant cold water mixing, lots of temperature change. Worth considering. Chris.

Looks like a few good pieces of chrome on that one, John!

Yes Steve, I'm sure there were myriad attempts on his life over the years. Hazards of being a ruthless dictator, I suppose. I was in Cuba years back and Castro (Fidel) visited the hotel we were staying at. The security was unbelievable, over-the-top and he arrived in a Mercedes with 'glass bricks', surrounded by bodyguards. I have had lots of people not believe me when I say I stood 20' from the man in a hotel lobby, and with there being some 600 documented attempts on HIS life, over the years, I can forgive someone for doubting the story, but it's true. Crazy that he actually died of old age!! Chris.

Hey John(s) ...yes, I agree with you jwblazek, JW's DOES look like a newer and better version than I/we have. Sounds like we have the same unit and it is anything but user-friendly. Irrespective John's repaired/refurbished piece looks top-drawer to me. Chris.

Looks like a particularly well preserved NOS piece, John!!! Nice job.
Somebody posted an upgrade to the tightening nut on the site a short while back and it looked like it made it a whole lot easier to access. Did you see that one?? I intend to adapt mine that way, but have so many things to chase, I haven't gotten anywhere near 'around to it', yet! Chris.

Very interesting stuff, Leeedy, Roger. Bike licenses were not a 'thing' when I grew up in BC and my Dad was always strict about recording serial numbers and having pictures. I did have a gorgeous 3-speed stolen. It had every bell and whistle in the Simpson Sears catalogue on it and was my prize possession. I THOUGHT maybe the serial number might help get it back and made the whole police report, etc., but never heard or saw anything of it again.
The Sturmey Archer catalogue is very cool Leeedy, thanks for posting that, but know, you don't have to prove you 'have the stuff' as far as I am concerned. When it comes to bike knowledge, I submit you have few equals and no superiors!! Chris.

And Leeedy, that is a world-class collection of bikes you have there!! Very impressive lineup. Chris.

That's a cool Youtube video, John. You would think the guy could have jury-rigged an old chain guard or something over that open flywheel and belt - it looks like an accident waiting to happen! Chris.

Thanks for weighing in Leeedy. I consider you the 'bike authority' on here, so what ever you say, goes as far as I'm concerned. I'd still like one of Brian's little 2-stroke units though; they sound like fun. Chris.
