    Beautiful bike and awesome story.

    I’ve got one of these old Royce Union bikes too, this post came up while I was searching for tips on maintaining it. I’ve been having the same trouble with the rear derailleur and the brakes lately, small world! I can just manage to jimmy it into 5th, though it’s a real pain to do so.

    Anyway, just wanted to say that I appreciated your story and the tips on replacement parts. Oh, and when I bought mine in 2012, it still cost around $120 🙂
