Bored, and cant sleep. So, I took apart, cleaned and lubed, then reassembled the rear derailleur. Works like new. Thought I was gonna need a longer chain, but looks like a different missing link will suffice. This derailleur looks fully extended all the time, even on the smaller gears. I sure wish I ordered the BB sooner. I could have this thing tuned and ready to ride by now. Hopefully, the 68x118 is the right size. Couldn't find anything on the axle width, and the axle itself didnt have the width marked on it.

man, I really wish this bike was bigger. Exactly what I wanted in a road bike. Lol.

More google searching. I still cant give you an exact size on the BB axle lenght, but I think the 118 might be too short. Some of the higher models with 6 speeds run 122.5. This sadddens me, but, maybe I'll luck out. Bike should be done on my return to Ga, then listed for sale after a test and tune.

sure hope that BB got to the house and is the right length.
Just came across this!

if I can get at least 150 for it, I'd break even and get the world sport.

Well, my concerns were true. The 118 is too short. It's a 122. Oh well. Re-installed the orginal BB correctly, and bought some hoods for the brakes.

now a proper missing link, and I can set the derailleurs and put this up for sale.

Sold the fuji today. She said thos was her first road bike, and she had been looking for one small enough for her. Got the 150 I wanted for it, so I broke even. Now to look for another bike.

Not sure why but getting rid of bikes bothers me, I should probably sell the Fuji too but it is such a nice bike. Good to see you got a buck fiddy, the bikes hold their value

Yeah. She offered 120, and I said I'd take that. She ended up giving me the whole thing. I also told her to keep my number just in case she had a change of heart, or needed adjustments or work done. Sort of like tech support. Lol. Plus, the girl was cute. ;)

But I digress... I offered to work on it, because I kinda miss it. I wish it was bigger. But, good thing is I found a new bike shop in norfolk that works on BBBs, and has 5 classic road bikes in there for 150 each... including a Peugot worth about 200, and two classic schwinns (one with a 1 piece crank, and one with a 3 piece). And a fuji something or other. He hasn't touched them, because he doesn't actually know a whole lot. I say this, because he said the peugot came "straight from france"....
