1978 Robinson *FINISHED*
« on: October 16, 2018, 10:38 AM »
Well it's about time I started another build . My second 1978 Robinson. Winter build  :)

You'll all remember my first was stolen earlier this year  :'(  :knuppel2: 

This is on her way to SDB and the parts are begging to assemble  :) 

OG Robinson bars that came with the F&F  :smitten:  I've got grips, tyres, seat clamp, seat, Cranks, Reedy pedals and headset so far . It's not going to be exactly the same. i'll never find another Cook Bros stem.  :'( 

Looking for a double clamp Redline stem if anyone has one ?

Looking forward to this Carl.

It’s not my era and know very little about bikes/parts from then, but thankfully the likes of yourself and Ash, are here to educate us.

Not the prettiest of seat clamps but the right era . Don't see many of them on builds .  It's OG black, think i'll be leaving it that way .

Thanks Mate .. fistblump   I'm really looking forward to finishing this one as it's replacing one that was stolen.

Never easy finding the correct parts for a 70's build.

No, they all didn’t have them .  People did this to set the rear brake as a V brake
