hello all,

i finally have some parts and such to auction of which some are rarely seen and even then worth having a closer look. all $1 start prices and no reserve and with many clear and big pictures as well.

WINGNUTS BY MARCEL-LUXE - or spinners or however else you like to call them. chrome plate is starting to lift on corners otherwise in perfect working condition. very cool.

WILLIAMS 50T CHAINRING - 151bcd which is meant for use with the AB-77 crankset with the correct adapter plate or early campy pattern for a twist. could be new but i am not sure.

WILLIAMS SPLINED BB AXLE - again for the AB-77 cranks which date from '63-70 and looks to be in excellent condition if in fact its not a take-off from new. yes predates our friends at shimano by quite some time. if anything check the auction and drag the images to your desktop and send them to all the modern shimano riders you know that get so smug about their "revolutionary" bottom bracket coupling. send them a pic of this one and look for their reaction - works great everytime!!! (yes i lead a boring and lonely wife...er i mean life)

T.A. COURSE LEGERE or CRITERIUM DOUBLE CHAINSET - 51/53 for the PRO 5 Vis pattern bolts. guessing by some of the recent pics witnessed here i guess there's isnt much point for some of you to look at this as you may be wincing in pain already but authentic it is. excellent condition but could be new as no packaging and not familiar with these that much.

CAMPAGNOLO GRAN SPORT R/DERAILLEUR - im assuming its been a take of from new and replaced with a nuovo record item as its in a nuovo record box and has no discernable wear or signs of being used except for one thread on the attaching bolt. then again that could have been from a hanger - machinations and hyperbole doth get the better of me - its an early series dating from july '61 onwards and is show quality. big pics.

CAMPAGNOLO INCH PITCH PISTA CHAINRING - 26 tooth. thick and 151bcd. these are the coolest - i have a 27 tooth (no not for riding - hanging above my bedhead in place of where my italian girlfriend had put a crucifix - she didn't even notice). new in paper (which is incorrect and for a 28 tooth) and with slight shopwear. very cool.

all the above can be viewed at http://ebay.com/<blah> pe&include=0&since=-1&sort=3&rows=25
