Hi CR listees, I'm clearing some bicycle item "paper weights" off my desk:
1) VAR third hand brake tool. Heavy cast "Var green" metal tool with raised letters "Made in France" and "VAR 02 FRANCE" on the sides of the tool.Machined steel knurled adjuster used to close brakes at proper gap.Missing black plastic knob on end of adjuster shaft. The tool is still totally functional.Var tools are no longer made as far as I'm aware??? Mel Pinto used to carry this type of tool, through his Mel Pinto Imports Company. Cost $20.00 plus postage. Money back guarantee.
2)SUNTOUR: SunTour Cyclone (Cyclone GT on bottom part of derailleur cage).This is a long cage Suntour Cyclone rear derailleur in excellent condition. I would rate it a 9 out of 10.This has been sitting on my desk for a year. It is clean as a whistle and it just shines! Cost $22.00 plus postage. Money back guarantee if your not pleased.
I do not have any digital photos.
I will be listing some bicycles for sale in the near future to the CR list,trying to get the car in the garage this winter!
Thanks, Dale for providing this forum!
I hope to see CR folks at the upcoming Westminster Bicycle Swap in February,2005. It's only two months away for the Middle Atlantic contingent!
