I have sorted out some more bits and pieces. All items are priced in $. Postage will be extra charged at cost. Enquire for actual cost if you like before deciding. Payment can be made in cash with dollars or by money order in Pounds sterling ($1.40 to 1 pound sterling). American Express Travellers cheques are also fine. Regards Hilary Stone

Stronglight Chainset ­ not sure of the model number ­ but it has the same crank arms as the Model 93 but takes Stronglight 99/100 type rings (86mm BCD). Cranks are 165mm and fitted with 50/44T chainrings and have French pedal threads. Rings are virtually unworn but both rings and cranks show a few signs of very light corrosion in places. They are unscarred otherwise (apart from a light front mech mark on the RH crank back) and all threads and tapers are perfect. Very unusual ­ I have never seen another pair taking this type of ring. $45

Bayliss Wiley/TDC Unit Bottom Bracket. This is the cartridge unit fitted by Paris to most of their Galibiers and by Thanet to their Silverlights. They were also used as a repair option on stripped bottom bracket threads. The bottom bracket unit is held in place by a special fixed cup and a special lockring. Complete with longish axle for cottered chainset but practically any English axle will fit. If used as a repair option the frame¹s bottom bracket shell needs reaming out to accept the unit. NOS and rare $55

Miller Dynamo rear light no 599 for fixing to rear seat stay. NOS and boxed, perfect condition but box is slightly dirty. $20

Campagnolo small flange Tipo hubs A bit scruffy, 36 Hole, Complete with Q/Rs (one a little rusty) $25

Simplex double tunnel with black plastic guides NOS, no bolt but rare and unusual item $16

European Cycling by Noel Henderson 152pp 1989 This lists and has accounts of the 20 greatest European pro cycling events. It is a great bible and just what you need when you want to check on who won the Tour in 1954. Paperback, excellent condition $20

Maitre Jacques The Jacques Anquetil Story by David Armstrong 36pp Another in the Kennedy Bros series from the 1970s. A little tatty and tiny torn section from rear cover but contents perfect $20

Yellow Jersey from Eugene Christophe to Eddy Merckx by Noel Henderson 37pp Classic text on the TDF Yellow Jersey winners. Another in the Kennedy Bros series from the 1970s. Mint condition $25

Fausto Coppi by Salvatore Trence 63pp and published in an English translation by Kennedy Bros. Lots of excellent photos. A rare and desirable book on Coppi. Last page which simply contained a photo has been sniped away hence $25

Cycly Witney 2-speed rear derailleur from 1930s. Some light surface rust. No control cable or control but rare rear derailleur and used often in its time to convert single geared bikes to 2-speed. $30

Eureka 4-speed 3/32in freewheel 15­21T NOS but grubby. One of the top Belgian (I think) freewheels Rare with very useful set of ratios $75

Holdsworthy Aids Catalogue 1975 Excellent condition. Lists all the Campy equipment and much else most with delightful line drawings. Holdsworthy were the British Campy importers but also brought in much else besides. 80pp $25

Old Roads and New by Jock Wadley. 1972 128pp. This is one of the real classics of cycle journalism. It covers a wealth of cycle racing details from the 1920s through to 1970 or so including a lot on his friendship with Rene de Latour, the great French cycle journalist. There¹s an account of the author riding the Paris-Brest-Paris and a really wonderful up close account of the 1971 Tour de France. Copiously illustrated. I cannot recommend this book too highly ­ I don't say that often either. Very Good condition $75

Brampton (France) NOS 1/2 x 1/8in chain in beautiful tin with lovely image of raring cyclist with tubular over shoulders, handlebar mounted bottle, etc. Tin a little damage on left hand side but this does affect the main picture ­ a lovely display item as well as an excellent chain. $45

Huret Competition Rear derailleur c1950­53 Light rust pitting on arm amnd missing dropout fastening bolt. But complete with actuating toggle chain. No markings but looks like 4-speed or possibly 5-speed. Pulleys are good. $40
