I would like to start a thread in which people can post pictures of their old Australian made/branded bikes. I was going to post this in the Australian Regional section, but I think it would be better suited to the Vintage forum.
To start, I will post the Australian bikes I own/have owned.
90's Paconi Road bike (Braeside, Victoria) Chromoly frame with Campagnolo droupouts (unsure what sort of tubing used though), Shimano Exage Deraillers, Cranks + shifters (Because the dura ace cranks that came with it were too small for me - Yes I prefer Exage to Dura Ace....) Dia Compe 400 Brakes, Wolber front wheel/Galli rear. 12 Speed. I still own this bike - recently rebuilt.
80s (around 1983) Ricardo Deluxe (South Australia) with hand painted pin striping - Shimano deraillers and dia compe brakes. Originally came with steel rims and dynamo light set. 12 Speed. No longer own this bike.
80s Progress bike (Windsor, Victoria) - Champion tubing, Suntour Symmetric shifters (great idea), Suntour ARX Deraillers. Shimano 600 Cranks + Biopace Chain wheels. 12 Speed. No longer own this bike.
1988 Malvern Star (Originally Malvern, Victoria - but this model was from Taiwan) Tange Chromoly Tubing, Shimano Tourney Groupset, Araya Wheels. These bikes were hired out/sold to people participating in the 1988 Australian Bicentenial Bike ride from Sydney to Melbourne. 12 Speed. No longer own this bike.
80s/early 90s? Protour VQ12 (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - Manganese Tubing, Suntour Blaze deraillers, Alesa rims, Sakae cranks with Powering. This is the roadbike that got me back into cycling. Unfortunately this bike was smashed into the back of a car - Frame bent but all other parts salvaged. The bike was much too small for me anyhow. 12 Speed.
