Re: Tyre Pumps

Hello Simon, I certainly do not have an original tyre pump but in late 1993 or early 1994 I read something in Classic Bike magazine about a man in England who wanted to make new pumps in the original style.

You have an interesting topic going so please keep up the good work,
regards, Chris

Re: Monobloc for a 1955 VB

Hi Klaus,
Would a Tufnel spacer from Surrey Cycles do the job?
