    Well, we're so close to Memphis that we usually just say Memphis. So I've got two bikes! A newer Schwinn mountain bike and my soon to be pride and joy a vintage late 60's to early 70's Grand Prix Raleigh. I will post some pics. The bike was my fathers and I pulled it from a barn to use as a tribike for my first triathlon and it did the job, but now I am overhauling it! So far I've pulled, polished, and greased just about every component.
    Everything is original except the tires (dry rotted) and soon to be cables. It's been such a pleasure pulling all the parts especially when you find out where they were made! It is a Carlton edition. If anyone knows what this means please let me know!
    Lastly, does anyone know any tips for cleaning rubber back to its original color? Mainly the Carlton break lever covers!
