    Thanks! I took it for a short ride, and it is too small for me; but with some changes to the stem, handlebars, and seatpost, I'm confident that I can make it work. With other projects more pressing, I'll get to it later this season. This was one of my better buys this season.

    Beautiful bikes here. I always wanted a real touring bike but so far this is as close as I have gotten. and to be honest since I never intend to do a real self supported tour this bike should be perfect for 2-3+ day credit card trips.

    '86 Volpe, since this pic I put one of those small front racks, that ataches via the cantilever bolts, on since this pic.

    1985 Specialized Expedition (60x58):
    It has all original equipment except for the seat, tires (replace with Specialized Armadillos), tape (replaced with Brooks leather) and fenders (replaced with Honjo). Except for the saddle, the replacement parts have essentially 15 miles on them. Bike looks to have minimal miles on it. It is quite minty. Here are lots photos: Bike: Specialized Expedition - a set on Flickr

    Very nice! I love that charcoal gray. How do you like those original Shimano brake shoes? I'm amazed at how well mine still silently and strongly stop after 27 years.

    The 27" x 1 1/4" Paselas on this are pretty beefy (i.e., provide no fender clearance), so it only goes out on sunny days.

    Zaphod,

    Are my eyes deceiving me, or have you actually bypassed the front brazed-on centerpulls? That rack is a pretty creative solution to these bikes where the fork crown was NOT drilled through, having been drilled and tapped from the back.

    It looks like he mounted the centerpulls on extended studs to allow clearance for the long brake pads.

    I think you might be giving me too much credit on that one lemme tell ya what happened.

    As you know on those bikes there are studs brazed on the fork to accept Dia-Compe Centerpull brakes. There's a little metal tab with a "D" shaped hole that slides on over the post before you put the brake arm on. Its to provide an anchor point for the brake arm's return spring. On day after a ride one of the brake arms wasn't springing back to position. The little tab had rounded its "D" shaped hole off into an "O" shape and was no longer providing spring tension.

    2 options. 1 - find or make a replacement, or 2 - Improvise.

    I went with option 2 and guessed that Dia-Compe would have copied Weinmann's Vainquer 999 brake to the letter. Which means the back plate for a weinmann centerpull (which provides the same function as those silly little washers) should work with the Dia-Compe arms. It did. And being that the spacing was exactly the same between the arms the back plate bolted right up to the brazed on studs.

    Originally the arms mounted about an inch or so closer to the fork crown. Now with the addition of that plate they sit far enough out to allow some Kool Stop Supra 2 pads to fit Admittedly an unintended effect, but a good one!

    I had no idea that those things could wear themselves round! I'm going to have to take careful measurements of mine, now, so I can reproduce them if anything ever goes wrong.

    I told myself when I bought my early 1977 about 1-1/2 years ago that I'd buy some Paul's Racers when I had the money. It's not going to happen, though, because I like the Dia Compes that much.

    I know, I wish I had known!! I'm sure they wouldn't be to hard to reproduce with a little time and patience and some stainless steel plate

    Here's my 1988 Schwinn Voyageur, but with few of the original comps. It's built up mostly with first-gen Deore XT and Shimano 600 parts:



    It's eventually going to get a front low rider rack and bags and serve duty as my camping bike.

    I donít think I posted this bike here before. If I have, I apologize. There is nothing that special about this it, but I loved the rose color. í79 Miyata Gran Touring. It was too big for me so I sold it to a young man who wanted to ride it from Seattle back to the Bay Area. Having rebuilt the bike from the frame-up, other than replacing the brake pads, I honestly told him that I could see no reason why this bike couldnít do it.

    '83 Univega Custom Maxima

    Purchased for $200. Added Yokozuna cables, Brooks saddle, bar tape, and a little elbow grease. Turned out nicely. Might want to add a leather tool bag and racks to finish her off.

    This thing is great! I have never seen racks configured quite like this. Thanks for sharing the pictures! Was it a 25"?

    Dear fellow vintage admirers,

    Maybe you remember the Vittorio Strada I posted elsewhere on the forums earlier.

    I plan to do short bicycle journeys and as Vittorio is famous for their great randonneurs that have been to everywhere on the globe, I started looking for one ...and I found. Another Strada, but this time one with randonneur ambitions >>



    For me it is the first time I see a Strada in this configuration. Normally the Strada is the pro level roadbike, while the Randonneur is Vittorio's offering for randonneuring. The average Randonneur is more heavy duty than this Strada however. A Randonneur I have owned in the past even had three sets of stays for superior torsional rigidity, also under heavy load. Possibly the focus on light weight and speed made builder Jan Groot decide to give this brown/gold example the denotion Strada.

    The stays connect to both toptube and seattube. The frame is ready for fenders and racks. I won't opt for fenders with my build. I would like to keep it as close to a roadbike as possible.

    After the photoshoot the bike was disassembled. The frame weighs about as much as a regular full 531 butted frame. Currently I am halfway with the build. I am undecided on what rack to use. Could be a Tubus, but I have also a Bruce Gorden laying around of which I am not sure yet whether it will fit. Vittorio built there own racks too untill recently, but they discontinued the small series production. People are no longer willing to pay the strong money for them (environmental regulations don't help too), while alternatives aren't as bad as they were.

    Like with my other Vittorio I find under the bracket the year (81) and the full name of the initial owner.
