thanks for the compliments on my stuff.

the tote-cycle is actually not a true folder. rather, it breaks into two pieces by removing two thumbscrews.

the A108 unfortunately had to get sold to make room for a work vehicle. its new owner loves it.(edited)

Who made the rear hub for that one? Chechs made 3-speed hubs?

Re: Vintage bicycles

It originally had a CZ stamped coaster brake hub, but I swapped the wheels out for an English set with a sturmey archer 3 speed.

Re: Vintage bicycles

Interesting! So that makes it a Chek-lish racer,right? LOL! I love the internal gears. Always wanted a 5 or7-speed by,I think Shimano?

if i'm not mistaken, the CZ hubs were licensed by sachs-torpedo from germany. though i have no experience with them (the only 2 favorits i ever worked on were both derailleur bikes), i've heard that the CZ hubs were not nearly as nice as their german counterparts.

Re: Vintage bicycles

Its a sickness like mopeds, just picked up this puppy, late 60's early 70's Kaptein Oxford Luxe. Very solid bike with a 3 speed sturmey archer hub.

And it came with a complimentary 20 mile ride home over the dyke.

Re: Vintage bicycles

Nice! That old stuff was built to last!

Re: Vintage bicycles

There's even no rust on the fenders, which is amazing after 50 years, later bicycles would've rusted to death by now.

The next time I get out towards the velodrome I will stop at this old family-run bicycle shop that's been in business for like a hundred and fifty plus years and he has a collection that you would never ever believe because it is one of the premier velodromes there is a large contingent of bicyclers that come through so this guy has this collection amassed that was beyond belief I just hope his kids didn't sell it all off cuz I haven't been there in 10 years if it's still open I'll go pick crazy
