Our 1974 Raleigh Twenty... the Carradice bag was a present from a friend and completes the trifecta of an old Raleigh, a Brooks saddle, and a Carradice bag.

Italuminium-awesome bikes! I was looking at the last one overlooking the canal and I thought to myself "That's looks a lot like Holland" and I looked at your location and it is! Haha! I will be there for 3 months in the summer visiting my family, can't wait!

NEW old classic, my 79 Schwinn LeTour IV. A good rider now. (Saved from a $25 Garage Sale Hell) Updated a bit, including newer 700s, but am thinking of getting some alloy hoops and restringing the old Maillard Schwinn Hubs that are still in great shape (the old chrome rims were NOT in great shape!), though the French freewheel is problematic, may have to replace it, being a bit worn.

1987 Centurion Dave Scott Ironman "Expert"

The disc cover is cloth, so 80's.

It's not light.
Neither am I.

That is extremely hot.

The back parts look great. I love the black rings on the ultegra 9spd arms.

I've been asked by a co-worker to help with a tri bike build for this summer.

I'll show her this nice one for starters!

As always, strong work Robbie.

Any chance of starting a thread on this beauty or the De Rosa you posted?

I would love to see additional pics.

Gorgeous bicycle you have there.

Just built this up for my wife last night. We went for a ride today and she really likes it. It is a great fit for her.

Donor bike for the Mirage 9 speed parts. Planet X wheels I had on hand, and a great deal on a complete Peloton for the frame.
Made for a super cheap bike that turned out really nice.

That looks like a lot more than a $25 bike. I can tell by your description you thoroughly enjoyed building it. great job.

A little project I have been working on here with my friend... a little "in progress" shot and so much better than "as found".


1953 Rudge Sports

Got the cranks aligned and worked the stiff links out of that chain last night and got out for a few test laps.

Here is a before...

Just got my winter bike built up in time for Boston's first snow. It's an 85 bridgestone mb-2, acquired in partial trade and partial buy from balindamood. Now it just needs decals, and I'm still looking for the original sakae crank and kkt pedals.
