    The voyager 11.8 (i assume, right?) has interesting gearing...just the kind of mid-range you'd need to amble around hillbilly country around here. it also has a bastard rear hub, doesn't it? I picked one up myself a little while back...maybe i posted it here, I don't remember....

    Drove an hour to see a 58cm '83 Specialized Expedition. Turned out to be a 56cm. Came home with it anyway. What's a guy to do?

    The whole rear wheel is a miss match on my voyageur. The rear is a high flange Normandy hub with weinmann rim and the front is a Shimano hub and Araya rim. I am guessing the rear derailleur is a replacement for the wide gear range, which might explain the wheel if someone could figure out how to remove the freewheel. The gearing does seem pretty nice for cruising aimlessly. The frame is the best part I think, double butted cro-moly with nice chrome and forged dropouts. The frame seems to outshine the parts, which is actually a good thing. I do like the super maxy crank though.

    Blah flibbin Klein ibba subbinn deeel

    Edit: That Klein is a stunning deal! I've always wanted one of those! Any part on that bike would get you your money back. Even the tires, I bet.

    No way that is your size. I am jealous, big bikes are hard to find for me. Saw one at a yard sale that was not for sale. Great looking bike.

    Nice Bianchi how did I miss this?

    this is a '88 Trefeo in special "Argentin" livery, it is intended to commerate the victory of Bianchi (rode by Moreno Argentin) at the world road championships in Colorado in '86.

    except for the brakeset, original equip was Modolo, and the pedals it looks and sounds like it is all original.

    very nice bike and great find indeed. I hope you enjoy it for years to comem should be a real headturner out on the roads.

    Mmmmm... I like the Klein. What is the frame size? Let me borrow it, and I'll get it worn in for the trails for you. Damn that thing looks like fun.

    Normally every bike I build is a straight-on road bike, but I decided to build up this Centurion Accordo Mixte with some parts I had lying around my garage a little differently, with a different purpose in mind... It has a sprung gel saddle, a vintage Pletscher rack, egg-plant colored cloth grips, and shiny chromed Northroad bars and wheels. Original Suntour AR and Sugino RT drivetrain.
    -In effect, itís a comfortable, easy riding bike, that some gal will enjoy for just cruising around the neighborhood.











    PS- The little fuzzball on the back tire is from the cottonwood trees.

    A LOT of us got our TdF's at the bike shop in Lawrence back in the day. I did, too. My guess is, like most of us, the owner couldn't afford the Campy parts right away, but put them on later. Before you strip that for parts, if that's your intention, consider posting this over at the GitaneUSA.com site. Several have been talking about trying to find an orange TdF... One of the active guys is from Salina, no less.

    Cheers,

    Owen

    Oh, and hard to say without better photos of head tube, fork crown and BB, but I'd guess 1971-73.

Needs a little work -- new wheels & tires (they're sewups), replace bar tape, rear derailleur needs adjustment -- but it was only $50. The guy had listed it to give away, but it wound up that I knew him from way back so I felt I should give him at least a little beer money.

    ( This bike is gonna end up in several posts today)-Found this on Craigslist today- The guy had it posted for $ 200!-
    He had so many calls he jacked it up to $300- he felt bad so he threw in 5 (!) track wheelsets (3 Campy high flange- 2 Dura-Ace!)-
    He said he considered just throwing it all in the dumpster instead of hassling w/ Craigslist!

    You've got to be kidding me. If you're absolutely serious about this you need to post about 10 more photos so we know you're not a troll.

    If in fact you aren't a troll, you have absolutely incredible luck.

    I'm no troll- And I don't believe in luck- I believe in fate!
    I was stoked to see the chrome Nervex lugs- I've heard that not to many P-14's (Track model) were ordered w/ the lugs chromed-Added weight!

    Yeah, that thing must weigh a ton. For a moment there I was getting pretty darned envious. Thanks for setting us all straight, Lug Steel.

    That Paramount is an amazing score, congratulations!!

    My latest find was considerably more pedestrian - a Kabuki SSK found at a pawn shop. I would normally have passed on this one, but it's been upgraded with a nice six-speed Shimano 600 drivetrain, Dia Compe brakes, and Wolber rims. Most of those will be used on my Voyageur project, and I'll get my money out of the Kabuki. I think the Atax Plastic Seatpost of Death may go into the recycle bin before someone gets hurt

    Not that old, but ... This was a recent garage sale find ("after" pix) that I paid too much for, but it was my size and I had my eye out for one. The 17-year-old tires were "toast", the L-side Grip-Shifter was broken, the stock deraileurs were junk, the brake pads were hard like cinder blocks, the spoke protector was crumbling apart, the bearing grease had rubberized, and it was a Grimey, shmutz-encrusted, dingey, filthy mess. A good "scrap metal" candidate to most folks. It now has 700 x 37 WTB Slickasaurus tires, Shimano STX derailleurs and cantilever brake calipers, Shimano QR hub skewers, new brake pad, rear rack, 2 water bottle cages, and a mid-1980s L-side thumb shifter (i like friction shifters for the front changers). Cleaning supplies included Awesome cleaner, Gunk Engine Brite, Turtle Wax polishing wax, Turtle Wax car wax, Castrol axle grease. Testors red model paint was "right on the money", and help up to being polished with car wax. These bikes are nice riding and pretty versatile.
