Previous owner messed with the rear ended up replacing the original parts with an improperly spaced hub with a horrible rim that made the bike wobble- not good. Found the a correct 126mm rear hub, stock rim, and set about replacing the hack job. Now it rides almost like new although the lettering has flaked off a bit, but overall in excellent condition. Cleaned up all the rust and grim along with some additions including a converted LED bullet light, sew on leather grips, gum hoods, brooks seat (finally broken in and comfortable as a pillow), acorn tool bag, and some white 700c 28mm Vittorias on this bad boy to replace the black 23mm Vittorias.

Thanks. I slipped the superflash on the bracket (the reflector bracket has two holes already), and just marked where the holes were, then drilled the back part of the superflash clip. After, just screwed it all together. There's room in the housing for the screw to penetrate the superflash for a more secure fit. Good luck!
