Okay...what about the pedals should I know? I was kinda thinking about changing them.

Other news: The old tires turned to dust when I tried to get them off. The powder that looks like sawdust? Yup that used to be a tire.

Lol, they have reverse threads, that's all.

Do you plan on cleaning/greasing all the bearings? Although I don't believe it deteriorates like those tires, wow!

And make sure you have good cables for the brakes! Those things go fast and you may wanna stop.

They're like early Dodge wheel nuts.

Bicycle pedals have changed since the 'Rat trap' style. Those pedals usually had toe clips and straps. Not fun when you have a pile up in racing and trying to free yourself.

I was thinking about greasing the bearings. Is there a torque spec for them?

I cant figure out how to lube the cables. I'd just change them but they are actually run through the frame and I don't think they can be changed.

The tubes weren't brittle like the tires, and would have held air if it weren't for the holes.

The first time you hit a big bump and your feet come off the pedals you'll be looking for toe straps/clips. Mine was a Cannondale aluminum fat tube touring bike. Loved to ride, many good memories. I hope you get it up and running soon, enjoy the ride.

The bearings fell out when I opened the races. I don't know why I expected contained units. So, I put it back together the old fashioned way, with lots of lithium grease to hold the balls in place while I put the outer races back in.

Anybody know of any product that might clean up the spokes? When you get everything else cleaned up, they sort of stand out. And not in a good way.
