ALLOY WHEEL REFURBISH : RETRACTABLE CASTER WHEELS : POWER WHEEL CARS
Alloy Wheel Refurbish
- Alloy wheels (incorrectly known as rims) are automobile (car, motorcycle and truck) wheels which are made from an alloy of aluminium or magnesium (or sometimes a mixture of both). They are typically lighter for the same strength and provide better heat conduction and improved cosmetic appearance.
- (Alloy Wheels) A generic term used to describe any non-steel road wheel. The most common alloy wheels are cast aluminum. Technically, an alloy is a mixture of two or more metals. These wheels are known for their light weight and strength.
- Car wheels made of aluminium, rather than steel. Main advantages include lighter weight and attractive styling. Mostly chosen for style reasons.
- make brighter and prettier; "we refurbished the guest wing"; "My wife wants us to renovate"
- Renovate and redecorate (something, esp. a building)
- (refurbishment) renovation: the state of being restored to its former good condition; "the inn was a renovation of a Colonial house"
- (Refurbishment (electronics)) Refurbishment is the of maintenance or major repair of an item, either aesthetically or mechanically.
Cleaned up and ready to roll!
24.5" 1976 Raleigh Sprite 27 3-Speed in Coffee Brown. Disassembled, cleaned up, lubed, and rebuilt. Added Kool Stop Continental brake pads, Dimension cork grips, and a nice large bell. Interesting factoids: This particular bike came with Italian Fiamme alloy rims, probably not stock. The serial number of the bike indicates a manufacture date of Late April 1976 The hub is stamped October 1976 (6 months newer than the frame?!) The chainguard is in the 1977 style (can't explain this). Neither the 3-Speed, nor the 24.5" frame seem to be common for a Sprite. It's a darker shade of 'Coffee' than other Raleighs of the same year. The black B66 seen here was the original saddle for my 1976 Raleigh Tourist. I love this bike! I assume the wheels were upgraded shortly after purchase, and that's when the newer hub was fitted? Or, more likely, it's a 1977 Raleigh Sprite 27, and I'm reading the serial number wrong.
Alloy, Alloy, Alloy 18/365
Alloy, Alloy, Alloy… Said the tyre fitter to the police man! My old Fox Alloy wheels have been refurbished to death so a new set of wheels touched down in the UK from Germany today and will soon replace these trusty car shoes… Hipstamatic shot which has been thoroughly worked on with a number of photo editing apps on my phone. I’d like to note that it was taken on the 18th Jan unlike what the info says!
