Oh, and are the paint and the hoods original? It seems to be in a fenomenal condition for it's age.

That Germi is spectacular, as are many of the bikes that rih1967 has on his flickr pages.

Paint &hoods are original. Perhaps I am going to add an extra layer of clear lacquer to protect the paintjob. He bought the bike years ago but kept the Germi in his private collection. One small issue to solve. The front derailleur cant handle the whole range of the triple. Does somebody know which Campagnolo period correct mid 60s derailleur can handle a triple? And does somebody have a spare TA crank puller for a reasonable price?

Great post Wouter
All of those bikes fom Rih1967 are beautiful and your Germi is perhaps the nicest looking. i know you will have fun riding it.

Those Koga's from Ciufalon indeed look like they can take you around the world without any problems, look almost indestructible but probably are running very light and smooth.

Great stuff Wouter! Are you going to (dare to) ride it? I'm up for a ride sometime soon, maybe on my newest purchase. Though I don't think I can match your beautiful Germi... I'll try to upload some pics from my Phone. You're probably not willing to ride it in weather that is less than 25 centigrade and zero chance of a single raindrop

Pics of my late 70's/early 80's Van Herwerden
It came with a complete (except for pedals) Campy Gran Sport group and a really cool perforated Arius saddle. My first GS gruppo and I must say it looks like quality stuff. I can't (yet) tell the difference with NR on certain components, for instance the seatpost and front derailleur. I dated it '79 or '80 because of the Portacatena dropout. The paint is in OK condition, especially after the pullup-method I gave it yesterday (pics are halfway). I got it from a guy (late 40, early 50 maybe) who decided to go cf and sold me this one. He was surprised on the attention it got online, cause it was poorly advertised but you could clearly see the perforated saddle at the blurry pic and it said it was a campy-fitted bike. The seller, who btw lives in an awesome type of medieval barn-conversion also had a cool tandem in his shed and ofcourse his and hers Mees cf roadbikes, different colour though. I'll post more pics when built...

Nice frame Don. Like it. Mooi haags bakkie. John van Dam also has a nice one http://www.flickr.com/photos/johnels...7629576870431/ I will soon ride the germi. I am not a shiner but a rider (although this quite a shiney bike;-) First i have to freshen up the crank grease and work out the issue with the front mech. But that will be done in a week or 2. For now I will ride my daily driver the Colnago Master. About saddles. Mine Germi has a quilted Cinelli Unicanitor (not pics of my own actual saddle).

Hmm so John van Dam has a v Herwerden with the portacatena dropout and he sais it's late 80's... So much for my dating theory. Thanks for the link though! That saddle of yours looks quite unique, never seen a Unicanitor with that quilting. One other thing: you ride your Master daily? Not as a commuter I hope

Nice C, you took it home! I've been eyeballing that one the last week... Would love to see some close-ups of that lugwork and such. btw Nice way to celebrate a fresh purchase! Is that a 0,5l or is it the camera angle?

haha, small world. It's a decent frame, very light (at least lighter than my other steelies), the only trouble is the seatpost, which is stuck, but fortunately (?) stuck at the exact right height. I've got most of the parts here, it just needs a stem, FD pulley and some consumables.

FD pulley? That is a new one for me! A friend of mine has got a nos XTR FD which has a reversed mech. He wanted to give it to me, but I don't have a bike on which it would fit. Shall I...?

like this.
Converts down pull FD to top pull FD. The trouble is with mountain FD's is that they can't swing the jump between the Campagnolo road triples, I want to have a big ring on there because the area where I'm going to ride this bike the most has a lot of long stretches of tarmac between the off-road trails.

Haha, true, but the fun starts at 50 in chainrings. Found out today the bars I had in mind for the project are 26.4 Cinelli's, and thus useless.. Ah well, I had a back up set.

I too had trouble getting the Campy Record front derr. to work well with the TA triple. My problem was that the back of the derailleur cage would bang into the seat tube and into the structure of the derailleur before the chain would drop onto the small chainring. In the short term I solved it by grinding a bit off two areas on the back of the cage and installing a longer bottom bracket spindle.



An even longer spindle would have saved the derailleur cage form its unpleasant meeting with the file but it would have thrown the chainline off. In the end I switched to a later (non period correct) Campy Racing Triple derailleur, but my bike is not so beautiful as yours and has many other anachronistic parts on it.
