    It hurts my eyes to look at it in bright light I know that! If the paint was good I'd leave it alone as it is highly visible but thankfully it's pretty bad.

    I've got the white and black splatter painted version in the 820 series. I purchased mine brand new in 91. Very solid bike. Not a great picture to see the splatter, but it is there.

    I am super happy with this catch, they are all NOS and were $35 each. Can anyone tell me when the yellow label ones were produced? I am guessing late '80s but I am not sure. The real challenge now lies in finding another yellow one...

    Might as well show mine.....put on your sunglasses lol!

    The paint is really nice, so I'll leave it as is.


    I upgraded the RD and hubs to Deore LX...still looking for a bottom pull FD. A forum member had a NOS set of black Deore LX canti's for sale, but I forgot who it was.

    You are a really lucky man, back mid 80's mavic started producing the ssc line that was like what the pros used, would not surprise me that is the regular gp4 with another label or with lighter eyelets At that price I would not complain, good score

    If my paint was that good I'd leave it alone too, nice bike. Mine is currently stored in my back garage and even in the dark that paint job jumps out at you. The more I look at it the more I think I want to keep it period correct.

    They are the real thing, I measured them and they are 23mm wide. I think I am going to lace the matching pair to some C-Record hubs I have and pop them onto my De Rosa since it is a 1986 model.

    I think it's a 1981 from perusing the catalogs. It's in great shape. Just needs a good cleaning and some brake hoods. I need to find a clamp on water bottle holder so it has 2.

    Two more for the winter "woodpile." A Miyata 610 and a Fuji Royale Mixte. I wonder if those super wide Schwinn saddles that way about 10 lbs. each can be used for curling in Sochi this winter?

    Wow, that looks to be in really nice condition for early 80's 710. Is it mostly original components? You found this where?

    Forgot to mention it's a 1000. Matches the catalog specs exactly but they did make blue as well in '81. A touring saddle would be nice. It's original except for saddle, tires and a new chain.

    Oh, and brake hoods, they are on the way.

    The rims a kind of considered as the French grail rims from the 80's by collectors...
    Asking prices for NOS Mavic SSC rimset have been running around $300+ at eBay.
    But they don't really seem to sell at those prices.
    I wouldn't doubt though that you can sell those NOS rims you got for 35 bucks each at $250 a pair, easy if you want to....

    It's a well built bike-- a bit heavy with the bolt-axle wheels and low end drivetrain that's on it, but it was clearly well loved. The soft but clearly constant rub wear on the crankset implies many many miles. The canti brakes + kool stops are really beautifully tuned on it. The gal who sold it to me said that it had been "her baby," and I don't doubt it.

    Too small for anyone in the house, so it'll be sold on to recoup some cost and keep my wife happy -- the bike should go live an exciting life on the Yale Campus for a while.

    I KIND of saved this one from the dump. It was a paintless frame in a pile of parts at the local co-op. I spotted the fork across the room in a fork bin and connected the two. I'd had a less nice Miele go through my hands a couple of years earlier, so I know something about them. It turned out to be a full Columbus SLX frameset. No rack brazes. I can't tell you how great this bike rides. This bike had to have been top of the line. Miele info is very hard to scrape together, but I think this model may have been a Miele Equipe. The frame was in perfect condition. The original paint just fell off, so I carefully rattle canned it and bought some Miele decals. My intention was that it would be a rider, so I didn't want to spend money on a paint job that would get marred up. It's pretty much all Shimano 600 "line lettering", 6 speed indexed. I'm really proud of this bike as you can tell by how much I want to blab about it! I have maybe $60 in this paint, from the decals and spray paint. All the parts I got by buying bikes and reselling what I didn't use to break even.

    Got my hands full now!

    Well, I couldn't figure out exactly where to post this so here's as god a place as any. I answered a local craigslist ad and came home with all of this for cheap!
    What I think I have here is a 1974 Schwinn Voyageur II, a 1970ish Raleigh Grand Prix and a 1970ish Raleigh Super Course Mixte. Bothe the Raleigh's need extensive work but under the grime they're all there and appear to be solid. They both have old school generators and aftermarket fenders, The Grand Prix has a cool little compass and an odometer. The Voyageur II is in really nice shape for the most part. It's missing the stock rear wheel/freewheel and derailleur but otherwise seems original to me. The guy I bought these from took the saddles off to sell separately. He told me they were all Brooks leather
    Plans are to restore all three to serviceable condition. Any insights into what I have here would be appreciated. I'll get better pics up soon when I have time.

    Everybody that pulls a leather saddle of of a vintage bike to sell separately, should receive a light smack on the forehead. Just saying. LOVE the Voyageur!,,,,BD

    Yes, I have been looking for a used SSC wheelset for awhile now, I never thought I would find the rims on their own for such a good price. I was thinking of using the yellow labeled 36h rim for a modern build, maybe lacing it to a Chris King hub so that I can run a 9 or 10 speed group which would make it very versatile for me as I could swap it between different bikes. The red labeled ones are 28h and I just have to track down some C-Record hubs and I will put them on my '86 De Rosa as I believe they would be period correct for that bike.
