I bought a used copy of Glenn's Complete Bicycle Manual from one of the Amazon sellers. It was a bargain. As I remembered the manual is full of very nice directions and illustrations for working on bicycles. It was written in the 1970s and reflects that time very well. Just check out the socks on the cover.
It contains detailed instructions for overhauling various hubs of the day, including the Komet coaster brake hub I recently posted about.
This girl reminds me of how my sisters dressed in the 1970s. The belt is right on.
This could have been me.
In the category of "strange but true," this mechanic dresses just like they do at Hiawatha Cyclery today -- mechanic's smock and neck tie.
