    Looks great, javal! Is that a Cinelli/UnicaNitor saddle? If so, how do you like it?

    Ablaut; no, its a Kashimax Super Pro. The Kashimax saddles were standard on high end swedish race bikes from mid/late 70┤s when they replaced the Ideale choice (see pic). Originally and incidentelly, the Mustang had a Kashimax Sports saddle, but the Super Pro is really enjoyable on longer but slower rides. I have friends whom dislike the "Kashimax-feeling".

    For those of you who weren't into BMX, Kashimax saddles were the saddle of choice on all top end bikes in the late 70s/early 80s. Plastic, no covering. The Kashimax Aero was the coolest.

    REALLY nice looking bike, btw!

    Here is my 1981 Miyata 1000. I just finished a complete rebuild last month and I'm needing my VO fenders as of yet. I also need a handlebar bag, a set of lights and some Kool Stop pads for the NOS Suntour XC Pro canti's I put on her.
    I've also got a set of 4 NOS Madden panniers for her, buzzards and baby buzzards.

    Rideable, but it's still a major project. Needs a repaint in the worst way. Fenders, too. The front is inly a single, because I haven't been able to find a cheap BB with a long enough spindle for the Gipiemme cranks. Phil Wood, one of these years.

    One of the coolest features of this bike is the intended generator / light setup. The second photo shows a braze-on for a QR switch for the generator. The generator is supposed to thread into the chainstay bridge. A cable would run up from the generator to the QR. The frame is also drilled to allow internal wiring, and there's a there's mount on the left fork leg. Tres Francais.
    Anyone know what rear rack that is?

    I was originally told this was an '83 Fuji America, but I guess it turns out to be an '81. The picture is as I received it and no work has been done yet, other than changing the chain, which may be original.

    The B17 saddle had been swapped for an Avocet Touring I, barcons for stem shifters, Nitto Technomic stem for an unknown make/model, MKS Sylvan pedals for a make/model that escapes me at the moment, and Diacompe drilled brake levers swapped for "suicide" levers. Currently, I am looking to change the brake levers, pedals and stem to original models. I'll probably switch to downtube shifters, like all of my other bikes. I think I will keep the Avocet saddle. I'm surprise at how comfortable it is.

    Originally, I thought I might like the stem shifters, but after a hard brake the other day, I can see why Sheldon Brown referred to them as a dull knife pointed at your groin.

    Overall, I am very happy with this recent acquisition. The triple gearing was wonderful on my commute to work on Friday. The paint and decals are excellent. The Suntour Cyclone GT RD shifts beautifully. I have even been kicking myself for not bidding higher on an America that was posted on Ebay last week, if only for the components and a frame to resell.

    Sorry about the shot of the pedal blocking the front derailleur.

    If you are talking about my Fuji, then thanks. I love it. Now, if only I can keep myself from contacting the guy in LA with the Opus.

    I think that this bike sealed the deal that I have an obsession. 4 Bikes, all Fuji, 3 vintage, 2 bedroom apartment. The 2008 Newest will probably end up being sold and the America taking its place as the workhorse commuter. I've found that I hate aluminum bikes.

    Well it is a touring bike, but not exactly the normal touring setup. So here are some current pics of my 83' Nishiki Seral turned fixed gear/rando bike. The plan for this bike is to get a SA S3X 3 speed fixed hub if they ever come out. I got tired of waiting so I have been riding it single fixed with a spare rear wheel. It is geared low for me so I can make the climb out of town on my work commute. I only decided on this fixed setup after I bought a non-vintage Surly LHT for touring and mostly commuting duties.

    Yes, I was refering to your Fuji.

    A lot of alloy frames have a harsh ride. I've found that only the Cannondale Caad 8, 9 have a nice ride for alloy. I'm sure there are others, but I haven't ridden to many other alloy frames.

    Peugeot PX8M

    I'm not sure if this would be considered a touring bike or a commuter.

    I still wanted to share it.

    I bought it at a garage sale last weekend.

    1979-83 ish Peugeot PX8M. Restoration to begin shortly.

    My Trek 620 commuter

    Got this as a frameset in trade with another BFer a year or so ago.

    Brooks Pro, Stronglight headset, Nexus 7 hub, ugly (but free!) aero rims, Deore cantis, ugly modern stem, and flatbars. I feel sort of bad that this nice old frame has such ugly modern parts on it. But it works.

    Got this mid-range "foodge" for the price of a movie. Manufactured in November 1980.
    Installed a "NOS" Pleitscher "rat trap" rear rack that came with it, and also a set of SKS fenders that I had on hand. I keep a set of Cannondale panniers, and a Karrimor pannier with a matching Cannondale handlebar bag that I can throw on when needed.

    Don't feel bad, if it works! Here's me a couple weekends ago on my 1982 Trek 720 as currently set up, which is pretty similar to yours. Nexus 8 hub, Sun CR-18 rims, flatbars with Origin-8 drop bar ends. I would like a better way to mount the Nexus shifter, but for the nonce, this will do.

    You could tour on a bar like that but I doubt you would.
    You raise an interesting question. What does determine that a touring bicycle have a specific style handlebars?

    Don't worry smorris... I for one will never tire of looking at it! That's really a stunning bike. A shame they are not still being built today! I love the look of those Schwalbe tires, too!

    Here is a purchase I made less than 1 year ago. 1986 Schwinn Voyageur. It came with all original components in barely used condition. Looked like it was used for just one season and then put into storage. I goofed around with it a bit and used some components which I'd been saving for just such a build up. I also have a Gilles Berthoud chrome front rack (not shown) with arms which reach the mid-fork front rack bosses perfectly. I looked long and carefully for a touring bike frameset with vertical dropouts - which are perfect for mounting fenders and still easily removing wheels... Those always sensible French custom builders were using vertical dropouts on touring bikes since the late 1940s - probably even earlier.

    You can see MANY photos - including details of all components (both original and new) HERE

    My absolute favorite bike these days. It has everything I could ever want on a bike. I use it for rides of any length. Always a joy to just hop on it and ride anywhere!

    My Voyageur as quickly built up 2 weeks after it's arrival.



    See slightly larger photo here: HERE

    I added:

    Stem mounted Japanese bell with stainless steel headset bracket [Velo-Orange]
    Stainless steel water bottles [Klean Kanteen]
    Stainless steel bottle cages [Third a bit excessive - but it does get very hot and dry here]
    Honjo "hammered" alloy fenders [modern Japanese copies of French "Le Martele" style by Lefol]
    Cheap alloy rack (Ascent "basic") from Nashbar [fits perfectly and is very rigid]
    Taillight on rack by VistaLite
    Now has a new ASV model Zefal HPX-4 pump [accepts both Schrader & Presta valves automatically]

    Original components still used ...

    Cartridge bearing hubs [Sansin] 40 + 32 spokes
    5-speed Shimano "Twist-tooth" freewheel [MF-Z012], silver finish, 14-26
    Super Champion polished alloy model 58 rims, 27" [I have the same in 700c for when these tires die]
    Dia-Compe model 981 Cantilevers [hidden adjustment slots drop the arms for 700C rims!]
    Dia-compe pulley-type straddle wire carriers... with quick-release levers!
    Shimano non-indexed shifters [SL-L422]
    Tange chromed steel headset
    SR Custom 90mm. stem

    Other original components were now replaced here with:

    Shimano 105 Triple rear derailleur (RD-5500)
    Shimano Double front derailleur (FD-5500) [the logos easily removed leaving just shiny anodized alloy]
    Specialites TA crankset - 49x32 rings [I can easily convert to a triple for serious Touring]
    SRAM 8-speed chain
    Lyotard model 460D pedals [always favorites, basis for the MKS Sylvan Touring pedals]
    Nitto Randonneur handlebar 42 cm. [my favorite]
    Shimano brake levers (BL-R600) [comfortable and clean looking]
    SR/Sakae seatpost (model FS-P5), polished fluted alloy, from 1981 [my favorite posts... ever?]
    Brooks Team Professional saddle

    I like them a lot! They don't leak and never taste nasty. Unlike some of the linings used on aluminum bottles, stainless steel is not effected by acids in soft drinks and will never corrode. With these, you just pop up the drink spout tops like you would for those used on most plastic bottles. There is a tiny rubber vent plug on the top of the caps. You depress this to allow in air while you drink... otherwise you would just create suction with each swallow due to the rigid bottle construction and air/water tight caps.
