How can I care for my vintage road bike?

I recently bought a beat up vintage road bike. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this neglected beauty as soon as I saw it. It was an enchanting old Raleigh Estelle road bike in double butted cromoly steel. The brakes were sloppy; the gears were slipping and the wheels had a wobble to them. It was in desperate need of service but it was a beauty and I couldn’t wait to see it but in full working order again.

Now
I don't pretend to be an expert
on how to care for a vintage bike. I love them and want to see them restored but I’m not an expert at doing the work. This takes a lot of time to become as each bike is different and there is a lot to learn. Also we all have a different idea as to how we'd like to see it when it is finished. One person wants it to look in brand new original condition, while another want to just make it operational and leave it to show its age and character along with a million different variation in between depending on where they are coming from collectors, as historians or just riders.

What I'd like to help you with is just a few observations and maybe some opinions of a general nature. Primarily for those who are just getting interested in vintage bikes or who find themselves in possession of one and they are not sure where to begin or what to do with it.

First
I know you’re going to be excited to get started but
before you put a wrench to it or start to work on it remember one thing. It’s old and thinks that are old are more easily broken so in whatever you do be gentle with it. Some people strongly suggest you start off by applying penetrating oil, like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench to everything you want to loosen so you don’t break it. Little screws nuts and bolts can be expensive and very had to find to replace it. Then you may have to buy completely new part which takes away the character and originality of the bike. If a part is stuck, apply the oil liberally and I suggest waiting overnight before trying to loosen parts. The little extra time here will save some frustration, disappointment and money.

I personally think
that whenever possible you should try to maintain and use the original parts but there are times when this just isn’t possible. In those cases you have two choices. Replace the part with an original part off another old bike or buy a completely new part. I would recommend the first if at all possible because using a new part is not always is easy to do as it often is a different size an getting it to work properly with everything else can be a challenge. Finding an original part to fit your bike also has its challenges. Both finding it and the price that you will have to pay isn’t always easy but I feel it is the way to go.

These parts are not as difficult as they used to be to find with the advent of the internet and sites like ebay but it still can be a challenge.

Well you have begun your journey into vintage road bikes and I think you will be thrilled with the results when you get to ride your old beauty. Till then have fun as you restore a piece of history and I think you’ll find the ride much more comfortable then on a modern bike of today.
