Actually, I think it's bottom pic on top of the yellow tarp. Q-towers attached to some long poles. Nothing about that says "spencer" though smiley
I have those for skis

I'm going to say it's hanging off the back of your probably non functioning minibus truck.

I've got a couple three speeds for sure. I know there was a 5 speed but I may have recycled it during the great steel wheel dump of 07. It could also be in my "wheel fence". I'll let you know.

internal hub would be sweet, but anything will work. i've got spare freewheels, so not too worried about what's on it. her current wheel has a busted maillard hub, and i really just don't want to fuck with any helicomatic shit for a grocery cruiser.

OK, no wheel with a threaded hub, but I came up with a decent wheel with a Shimano 333 hub. Non coaster. I believe it works, but I'll want to throw it on a spencer and double check. PM me if you want it...

It's Jackie's Sister's Rivendell Bleriot. It since has gotten properly fendered and some VO porteur bars on it, all new braided cable. It's a hot ass spencer.

forgot how much i liked this thread.

love this basement for spencer shit aside from being so terribly lit, sad i'll be leaving it in a few short months.

i am just slightly too lazy to break down boxes when i get shit in the mail.

so i know putting a number on the wall is lame, but remembering that day gets me kinda hyped on spencer shit when i look at it.
