My 1994 Bianchi Trofeo, showing signs of wear and tear. I stripped it down this winter and did a quick pain job, and replaced many broken, or in some cases...too nice of campy 8 speed parts on it, so i redid it. This will be my rain bike/spring pennsylvania roads bike/etc.

Here's my 1980 Raleigh Comp GS. Got some Campy on it, but the brakes are getting redone when I have time.

1986 Cilo just completed and fine-tuned. 2x6 Dura Ace indexed group, including hubs.
Seatpost is a Dura Ace AX aero (which I'd trade for an aero "regular" DA). Hubs are laced to Matrix ISO CII rims.
Bar/stem are Cinelli, as my habit goes. Bike is for my brother-in-law, powdercoated with new decals.
Columbus SL frame tubing. This is his favorite bike to ride. Conti Ultra Sports.

1985 Cinelli Equipe Centurion, 3rd version. OEM was NR friction/Ofmega mix, 2nd was 2x7 Chorus.
This one is 2x8 Chorus Ergo, but we kept the crankset because of frail threading that inhibited removal.
Wheelset is 8-sp Veloce laced to Mavic CXP-10's, Conti GP4000's.
Columbus SP frame, stripped and painted, new decals. I left the fork bare because it was polished under the paint.
Again, Cinelli steering, Campy seatpost. We have the OEM Gipiemme but we can't find it.
1/2" smaller all around than the Cilo, so we compensated with the stem a bit.
My brother-in-law's first Ergo build. Can you tell he likes red bikes with chrome forks?

Well done on both of these beauties.

I'd have a tough time deciding which one to pull off the hooks.

Cool stuff, no doubt!

^^That's a fine pair O' red beauties, Robbie!

Ive actually got a Serotta singolo which has road geometry but track end dropouts for single speed/fixed gear.

The Black & Tan, 1983 Raleigh Super Course

http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e3...e/P1200078.jpg

Upgrades include Wrights W3.N saddle, ergo bars, aero brake levers, Suntour Bar-Cons and a SunRace 7-speed ramped freewheel, Cyclone M-II rear derailleur, and a Bike Burrito for my flat repair kit.

I picked up a set of C&V 700C wheels on CL that I plan on putting on soon; need to get some new tires first. I also have a matching Cyclone M-II front derailleur to put on to match the rear.

Nice bikes.

Is that your beautiful red Singolo on the Serotta forum?

Exquisite bicycle.

It has Dura Ace/Ultegra 2x10 right now. Soon, I will be rebuilding the wheelset with Hed Belgium C2 rims, which should improve the ride significantly. I can't wait.

Wow. This is a GREAT bike. I love the new componentry on DT shifters and a steel bike. So simple, yet tech-y.

Is that a Circuit?

Still, very cool.

I love the paint on yours.

What are your build plans, if I may ask?

rat fink 01-26-12 07:59 PM

Thanks, Puget Pounder. I like blending the old with the new. It's something I've always enjoyed about one of my other hobbies: hot rodding.

Yes, it is a Peloton.
