Hey all,

I'm in the process of assembling an inch-pitch drivetrain and assorted bits for an early 1950s Dick Power and I'm in need of some assistance. Bring me your poor, your tired, your shiny track parts sitting in a closet.

Specifically, I'm looking for:

Cranks/chainring/bottom bracket: Chater Lea or Williams Pedals: Chater Lea or BSA Hubs: Airlite, Harden, Constrictor, Chater Lea, BSA, preferably high flange. I'd be happy to take a built wheelset as well if appropriate. Bars/stem: Titan ~100-110mm, track bend bars. Saddle: Wrights/Brooks, black

If you've got something appropriate but not listed here and think it might be worthwhile, please let me know! This is my first project of this vintage -- i'm primarily focused on borderline-CR appropriate early-mid 80s stuff -- so assistance would be greatly appreciated.

thanks,

-s
