Flying Pigeon LA repairs Union spoon-brake opafiets

All sorts of old fashioned roadsters and old school Dutch and English bikes get repaired at our shop on a monthly basis. This old Union roadster needed some new tires and tubes, a little bit of polishing with 0000 steel wool, and some small parts replaced.

The spoon brake on the front is a nice touch (not the best for stopping power, but reliable enough to slow you down with no maintenance needed). The dynamo has seen better days, and after getting the bike all wired up properly, we’re going to try and swap out bulbs in the lights and see if replacing the dynamo makes things light up a little brighter.

The tires on the bike are creme Schwalbe Delta Cruisers in a 28 x 1 1/2″ size (40-635 is the ERTRO designation).
