I was especially impressed by the generator, which is virtually inaudible, as I'm used to the rather loud whir of the bottle generators that are most common here.

    I've noticed the Crestas started using cantilever brakes sometime in 1983 making 1982 the last year Nishiki used caliper brakes on Crestas. It makes sense they made the switch though since cantilever brakes are better than calipers for stopping a heavily loaded touring bike (IMO).

    Very nice, thanks for sharing.

    Thanks, I have a set of Jim Blackburn racks for it if I ever wanted to tour on it but if I were to go on a real tour, I'd just buy a Long Haul Trucker to beat up. This one is too pretty. I saw that yours has 700c wheels. I tried that but the brakes never worked right. I ended up building a 36 hole shimano 600 to Sun CR18 wheelset.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Cool, I didn't even notice that at first. Can we get a picture of how it attaches to the sanyo generator? I have a sanyo generator on my shelves, just deciding whether or not to put it on a bike.

    non-fixi, That Gijs van Tuyl 'Racing Feather' touring bike is really attractive, I really like the rear brake cable stop.

    The 1983 Specialized Expedition is the epitome of what a touring bike should be. Perfect frame geometry, braze-ons where you need them, beautiful, purpose driven bikes.

    This bike is stunning but I have to say that those aero levers look out of place. However, I certainly wouldn't let them stop me from riding it!
    What rack is that on the back? Surly?

    Easier access to a front bag without cables (for me) and the tektro hoods are super comfortable. So function over CV form on these counts.
    The rack is a Tubus Cargo Evo.

    Ostrich.

    I agree with the brake levers, their function is worth more and worth getting past the looks. I have both the old and new style tektro levers, I still think the new ones are hard to look at.... but the levers feel like they were made with a hand stuck in the mold. They are the Perfect shape for hands.

    Would this be the Sanyo generator you have?

    Also scroll down a bit to see pic of BB generator on Peter White's site.

    Only updates since this picture are a fender on the rear wheel and bicycle computer.

    I just sold this Centurian Pro Tour 15 today.
    I think it is actually a 1984.
    The quality was really nice.

    My close to finished 1984 Trek 620, with matching vintage Cannondale bags.

    I've got a NOS Avocet touring saddle to swap out. Always something...

    You are wealthy, you are rich in bikes. Not just any bikes but choice ones. I would be most appreciative if you would tell me when actions you would take to obtain a Centurion or Panasonic Pro Tour 52 cm?

    Beautiful bike. That bike or the Panasonic version is at the top of my procurement list. I't my size too, 52 cm. Has the sale been finalized?

    Here's my 1988 Schwinn Voyageur, built up with a mix of early 80s touring components and "retro-modernized" with Honjos, Nitto rack and various bag combinations:
