Detel Frame/Fork Ishiwata 022 DB Tubing. 650B Conversion Candidate 1983-4

 Detel Marathon 6000  Ishiwata 022 Chromoly Double Butted  Frame/Fork For Sale:

Size 56 cm center-center or about 58 cm center-top.  Top tube is also 56 cm c-c

Color is Silver Lylac Metalic and in excellent condition.

Frame sticker says, "Assembled in Green Bay,"  so I''m guessing it was built in Japan.

It was originally equipped with 700c wheels and normal reach brakes. Right/Left chain stays are each factory-crimped on the inside for greater tire clearance..  Bike is pictured with 650B x 38 tires and Dia Compe 750 brakes to demonstrate potential for a 650 conversion. 

Tech Specs:   Standard British Threaded Bottom Bracket, Standard 1" threaded ISO Headset Spec. Suntour Dropouts. Seat tube fits 27.2 mm post.  6 speed 127 mm rear axle spacing. Brakes require hex nuts--brake holes are NOT countersunk for Allen Bolts.

*Detel was a company based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They were only in business in 1983-84.  Apparently,  their investors backed out.

Schwinn Sports Tourer 1973 Excellent

'73 Sports Tourer
Size 25"  seat tube measured center to top of top tube 26" to top of chrome seat collar. Top tube 24" c-c.
Standover is about 34-1/2"
Serial Number GJxxxxxx July 1973
Hubs Dated 1974
Condition: Excellent with usual scratches.

I am the 2nd owner of this mostly original '73 Opaque Blue Sports Tourer.
Original owner recently installed new Kenda gumwall tires, brake shoes and black cables.  Gold freewheel/chain were changed earlier.
Front deraileur was upgraded to Campagnolo Record.  Cable is routed under bottom bracket.
*"Number 1 Pump" doesn't seem to work.
*Rear mini-rack, as featured in '73 Schwinn catalog
*Schwinn Sprint bottle cage with hinged clamps.  Unfortunately, it's missing the "Sprint" spring-loaded steel fastener. But it still holds the original "Ale" bottle. Appears in '73 catalog.

TA crankset: 1 decal missing.  Replacements available on ebay.  The other is worn--see pics

NOTE: The frame was built in July, 1973.  Hubs are stamped "74."  I suppose either the frame was built into a complete bike in 1974, or the hubs were produced earlier than the date stamp.

FB Hubs, Brivio Frères Cognin France 1937 (aka Fratelli Brivio) avec papillons Dural Alumin Le Simplex

Shiny brand new in the tattered French box from the Cognin, France factory with "37" 1937-dated cones. FB flip/flop hubs are fitted with Le Simplex Dural Wing Nuts.  FB started the French factory in 1933.  These hubs were intended for the French market, with French freewheel threads on one side.  The other side uses an Italian lock ring.  It's the same threading as modern Campagnolo lock rings.  FB continued to manufacture hubs in both Italy and France.

Notice older Eagle logo on barrels. Wings are about 45° instead of typical 90°.

Cone Date-Stamped "37" and "FB"

Simplex Wing Nuts shown with 1937 Simplex Catalog
