Some of you may have noticed I have put some items onto Ebay a boxed Brampton chain, a pair Of Campag Gran Sport gear/fixed hubs with 'open' C Q/Rs and a Simplex Competition rod operated front derailleur. I will be adding some more items later today. This does not mean that CR members won't normally get a first crack at the bits and books I have available they will normally be offered on CR first unless it is an item I find very difficult to put a price on.
Anyway here goes with 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

The Kennedy Bros published in the 1970s and 1980s yearly booklets on bothe the TDF and the Giro as well as a good series of booklets covering particular riders and some on a theme. These booklets are mostly close to A5 in format and are generally very well illustrated. They are a generally a great introduction to their topic being written by some of the leading cycling writers of the day. They are becoming harder to find now. I Have three titles at present available: Eternal Second The Raymond Poulidor Story by David Armstrong c1972 32pp Plenty of good photos as well as a good account of his career. Not common and in mint condition $25 Maitre Jacques The Jacques Anquetil Story by David Armstrong 36pp 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. Mint condition $25
Continental Cycle Racing by Noel Henderson published by Pelham Books 1970 192pp Noel Henderson analyses the complete histories of the continental classics and the major stage races together with the World Championships.

A good selection of photos and fascinating reading as well as a great reference tool. Missing dustjacket $40

Pair of all leather cycling shoes English size 3 equivalent to continental 36/37, but I¹m not sure about American shoe sizes. All leather soles with just very light wear.
