    Very nice. I have the Cinelli Groove( below, silver) on my Pinarello, and like it a lot. But had I known about the Alter.....

    I've got one (with the pin-up) on my track bike; very stiff stem and I too get a lot of compliments on it:

    Not to sound like a lech (( try to keep it a secret!), but where does one get the pin-up inserts? For a friend, you understand.....

    I see them on ebay from time to time, do a search on Alter, usually comes up with a few bodies
    and pin up covers.

    i think the idea of the pin-up inserts is hilarious, I mean it basically puts it in the perfect spot to look at when you are on the bike. I am surprised an idea like this was ever able to make it into production with such a large and prestigious company like cinelli haha

    Before: impulse $10 buy from eBay


    After a new paintjob and a thorough cleaning of the bike:

    Front fender has a bad dent so I left them off. Rear brake has been added. Still waiting on new wheelset.

    Before: JC Penney's finest


    After some good cleaning and new paintjob

    well, a new saddle, pedals and handgrips from Wal-mart.

    Before:

    After: so far

    a fellow alleycat racer has expressed an interest in this bike. I just might let it go.

    I posted this one in the COTD thread, but I have a nice set of "before and after" pic so I thought I'd toss em in here, too. A late 80's Centurion Cavaletto in disrepair, that I converted back to a road machine with a triple drivetrain. It came out very well:

    Here's a before and after on my Shogun Alpine GT. Stripped to bare metal and repainted. The wheels were changed from the hybrid 700's to some Sun M-13II's from a hopped up Denali. Turned out really nice I think.,,,,BD
