    That's a gorgeous bike, love the slung look of the bars. Of course, like with my 49cm Nobilette, they'll tell you it's too short for you to ride, but you've found in that bike the missing element that fixes a too-short frame, sling the bars down for a pista racer. Solves a good bit of the geometry problems. Thanks for that pic, it broadens my range of potential buys. About the LeJeune (U before E, capital J) how'd it ride? I've always wanted one because my family lived at Camp LeJeune, NC when my dad was in the Marine Corps.

    Thanks for the spelling correction. It's been a while. I really loved riding it (the Lejeune) during my younger days. Rode it from Brooklyn (East New York section) to work in Harlem 3 times a week. About 19 miles each way! Brake-less "steady kicker", as we referred to track bikes. Even took it as far as Bear Mountain upstate NY on more than one occasion. Rode it on the Kissena park velodrome in Queens NY early Sunday mornings when the track would be empty. It was chrome plated. cinelli track stem with the enamel painted medallion. Fiamme Tubular rims with Normandy high flange track hubs and clement sew ups. Sugino track crank. Cinelli 67 track bars. Etc. as you can no doubt tell, I really miss it.

    Picked up the Cannondale, driving 108 miles round trip. It was worth it though, for the frame alone, which will be the main part I keep. I already transplanted the rims from the Sante Fe in this picture. Originals were silver Ritchey Vantage on Exage hubs. I still haven't decided on bars yet. I might just drop the old bars and stem from the M1000 on it, but I have other mtb bars and stems to choose from. Maybe some ergo bars and bar ends. Still up in the air.,,,,BD

    Gifts...

    The rucksack is German, my friend gave it to me because my daughter said she liked it. The construction quality and hardware are outstanding.



    Wrights W3ST was new old stock, original price was $19.95 and the price sticker is still attached.... this is one of my favourite saddles and it will go on the Moulton.

    There's no winner, loser, or competition for that matter, but it is sooooo hard to keep up with @wrk101! However, I happened to be 3 miles away from this seller at a venue, about 60 miles west of home. So why not? A PCS-10, used once, for 1/2 of new. This will complement my steel plate mounted shop stand and be my fair weather stand, if I don't get my Ultimate/Feedback head fixed.

    Scored this for the Clunker 100 Challenge, AUD10.

    And grabbed this wheel too (with Velocity rims), AUD20


    Also grabbed three old (date code EF) blue Shimano BMX hubs for a dollar each, probably try and sell them. Reckon they're worth anything?

    Also got some records for FREE; 2x the Alan Parsons Project LPs, and Billy Connolly(?).

    Sorry, but you are WAY ahead of me with the PX-10 find alone. Add those sweet Stumpjumpers, amazing!

    Non-catch of the day..... a '72 Paramount comes up on local CL.... my size, way in my price range, full campy prob GS, high flange hubs. Didn't get a lot of the details. Contacted the gentleman... he says, "i'll call ya and set something up." Never calls, emails me back to tell me it's sold. Dang. Heartbreak.

    First score of the year here................Park Tool Cotter Press $3

    I've been procrastinating the purchase of some supplies and I'm glad I waited.......went to an estate sale this morning and bought a ton of stuff that included about 5 rolls of black housing, a milk crate full of brake and gear cables, about 20 sets of Shimano top tube cable clamps, about a dozen 3 speed cable sets, 5 third hand brake tools, 2 spoke wrenches, chains, grips, brake pads, a parts cleaner, a few assorted wrenches, a Park work stand (older white one), about 100 black bar end plugs, about 15 freewheel tools.


    I went to the sale to buy a very old truing stand but it was priced at $250............tomorrow it'll be $125...........still more than I wanna pay.

    This was the estate sale in Lombard? I saw the truing stand. Was it missing some parts? I compared it with the one on Velobase, and it seemed like it was short of a full tool.

    How many Strawberry Shortcake bikes did you buy?

    A lady called me and asked if we wanted one of those Raleigh 20 bicycles, adding that it had been in storage for the past 40 years.... it was a 9.9 / 10 and rarely have I seen a nicer example than this and the colour is splendid.



    All I had to do was wipe a little dust off it and give it a sip of oil and it went home with my friend who has been looking for one for a while.

    I'm a newbie to this forum. I bought this 1970 Schwinn Super Sport from CL last week for $25. I've always wanted a vintage Schwinn ever since my brothers bought the Varsity back in 1964. Unfortunately that bike got stolen. I replaced a few parts, took out the rust, and made a few adjustments. It rides like a dream.b4031404.jpg

    This one came out of someones truck in pieces at the end of a swap meet few weeks ago. So in honor of the first day of spring....

    Putting the finish touch on this 90 Schwinn Traveler. Still missing the proper rear DR but found a temp for it for now. Came with full Shimano indexed 300EX group sans rear. Cleaned up nice and will use it as my beater, foul weather group ride bike.

    001.jpg006.jpgWith a recent white Regal from e fellow BF'er to match the original white tape, cable, decals and bottle cage. Paint is called Atlantic blue, just a few nicks.

    I've had 3 Travelers over the years (and still have two). The material quality varied over the years, but they were all good bikes and nice rides. Enjoy.
