THE CYCLING HANDBOOK by Lon Pullen 1st edition 1950 175 pages These are quite simply the best guides to to the kit and how it was used in the 1950s. There are three editions of this book which are all fairly different. It contains masses of information on hub gears, Cyclo, Benelux, Huret, Simplex and even the Campagnolo Corsa. Also included is a spec list of handlebar shapes and their dimensions and many other fasinating bits on contemporary frames and kit. Lon Pullen had a good knowledge of the continental scene and this is reflected in this book. This copy has a very dirty dust jacket and a few dirty pages is otherwise very good. So just $22

CAMPAGNOLO CONE SPANNERS 13/14mm and 15/16mm NOS. These are the very best cone spanners money can buy - I still use the ones I bought 20 years ago and they still do not show any wear or distortion. $14 each

BRAMPTON B8 PEDALS - these are in good to very good condition - the chrome plating is pitted on the barrels mostly good on the plates - they have not been groundedand are perfectly straight but they would be very easily rechromed or would be great for a restoration with original paint. These are a rare opportunity to acquire a pair of these pedals which were the stock pedals on many of the top models from British framebuilders - Chater Lea were normally an extra cost option. $45
