    That's a key point, since some of the pre-80's bikes advertised as tourers didn't have many braze-ons.

    On the other hand, I think McDave's re-purposed High Sierra--or any other 80's rigid MTB with relaxed geometry--could be thought of as the perfect roughstuff vintage touring bike. I vote to see them all!

    Good answer! Here's a quote from the '85 Schwinn All Terrain catalog: "Bicycling! Magazine's "Good Buy" pick in 1984, the High Sierra returns in '85 an even better buy for all terrain touring cyclists." Works for me!

    Now about you credit card tourers without racks and panniers... welcome too! It's all good!

    Well then:
    Here's my late 80's touring bike. It's a Georgina Terry custom:

    I've since replaced the 600 pedals with some spuds. And I got rid of those awful biopace rings.

    A few pictures of my stripped down Trek 520. Since posting these pictures I have put the racks back on and replaced the handlebar stem.

    '74 Herse. Not mine. Not by a longshot.



    This Mariposa, however, is. krap photo, great bike.





    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.

    This one is in Brown Santa's bag of gifts.

    Don't know what happened to the original fork, but eventually I'd like Mark Nobilette to make me one with lowrider mounts. When not in racing mode, it'd be nice to have fenders, lowriders, a handlebar bag, and a saddlebag. Any day now...

    This is my credit card touring bike. 1985 Trek 520. They called it a sports touring bike and unfortunately the chain stays were pretty short for a couple of years. It has the rack, bag, fenders, and bar-end shifters so I hope it qualifies.

    Your bike and the herse are just fantastic. I'm starting to get the randonneur bug. I advise anybody that lives in the Toronto region to go visit the mariposa/bicycle specialities shop, it's very nice.

    I'm very jealous. I've been wanting a nice old touring bike for ages, but they're practically nonexistent around here. My Nishiki would work for shorter trips, but it's not a full-fledged tourer.

    I don't have a touring bike yet. I want one, but they don't come along often in my size. Here was one that was close, but the top tube was just too short. It is now in the hands of a new owner.

    I tried to post a thumbnail of the derailleur several times this morning but it failed, redid the reduced image to a smaller size & had no luck then tried to repost one of the pics that I had posted last night & it failed also. Just tried to post a pic of the derailleur again & file failed to post again. I will try later tonight. Don

    make it happen.

    Wandering into Mariposa was like going to a strip club in Mtl when I was 18. Except the no touching rule is a little more relaxed at the bike shop.

    For those if you in T.O., Cherry Bomb cafe on Roncesvalles has a rotating display of Mariposas on the wall.

    Thanks for the photos of some great bikes in this thread! I can argue that a circa 1960 road racing bike* with a widened gear range makes a great unloaded "credit-card" tourer. The double-butted Reynolds 531 Capo Model Campagnolos of that era get way too whippy with a loaded rear rack (been there ... done that), but their straight-gauge cousins are noticeably stiffer.

    61cm actually. It looks taller in that pic than it is (not sure why). I'm 6'2"+ and 192 lbs. I have long legs and a shorter torso, that's why the stem is shorter than you might imagine.

    I thought there was room for improvement, so I added lots of zippered security pockets, a spindrift expandable collar and some D-rings on top to lash extra gear.
    I've seen some of your bags for sale on eBay. I like this one better than your replicas of Carradice bags. Do you plan to sell any on eBay?

    Naw! The OP is a posting ***** just like the rest of us who look for any excuse to show off our pride and joy.

    BF fixed the problem with posting thumbnails so I swapped in a closeup of the rear derailleur back in my original set of pics on page 1. Enjoy
