  6. Thom--- Great job on your Huffy Sportsman. Coincidentally, I'm driving 70 miles south tomorrow to buy a red Sportsman (via craigslist)! This will be my first bike project and I hope I can prevail upon you and your blog readers for some helpful 'handholding' if/when needed! Wish me luck!

  8. Hello, that looks like a Brooks B72 saddle on that classic steed. I have one like it on a 1973 Lady's Raleigh Roadster and the frame is without flaw but the leather went to pot and is cracked and gives off black for the last few years (neatsfoot oil ?) Question is can I get Brooks or someone in the USA (Parsons ?) to recover it? any info would be greatly appreciated. Another Brooks B 72 on a Raleigh 1976 is super it is a antique brown and beautiful. Thanks Ed

  9. Very nice classy bike. If you mount a lantern on it be sure to flip the holder as it is upside down in the picture. Does it have a Raleigh Heron design on it as Raleighs do. ? Thanks Ed
