Bottom Bracket Overhaul On Vintage Raleigh Tourist Bike

Posted by on in Bottom Brackets


This is my 1970 Made In England Raleigh Tourist Rod-Brake bike. I am slowly going through it and cleaning it up. In this video I overhaul the bottom bracket which was a mess. Loose bearings. There were some kind of seeds inside the bottom bracket shell. I opened it up, which included a stuck fixed cup. I cleaned all the parts. I replaced the bearings and put it back together.

In this video, I used a trick to remove the stuck fixed cup. I did another video with more detail on that: Watch that here:

The specialized tools I used were:
Park Tool ACW-11 Slotted Bottom Bracket Adjustable Cup Wrench

Park Tool ACW-5 Lock Ring Spanner
